QUIZ: Season-opening Formula 1 Grand Prix winners

QUIZ: Season-opening Formula 1 Grand Prix winners

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who is known for naming each of his race cars, revealed that his new auto is called "Lina". We have work to do.

"I feel Melbourne is the ideal place to start the championship", said the 31-year-old German, now in his fifth season with the glamour team.

Lewis Hamilton is braced for his biggest challenge as he chases a sixth Formula One title and Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari sense this could be the year they finally turn the tables on Mercedes.

In eight of the last 19 seasons, the victor of the opening Grand Prix has not gone on to become champion.

"As in any team there has to be a number one and a number two in a 50-50 situation".

"It is not going to be easy".

"You don't know exactly where you are, you don't know what's going to happen", he said.

"It'll be interesting to see how Red Bull's upgrade worked and I know Ferrari usually bring an upgrade to the first race so it will be interesting to see". It is all very new to me but we are free to fight. "Most of it is going to be up to me if I make it or not, and that's a good feeling".

Last season we saw Ferrari start off with a bang and they kept up with the tempo.

"That's the main priority and the rest, it's a long long season and I think it's a bit pointless at this point to start pointing out certain scenarios".

Ontario to ban cellphones from classrooms during instructional time
A study conducted by the London School of Economics and Political Science concluded that "student performance in high stakes exams significantly increases" with a ban on cellphones.

The 2019 Formula One season begins in Melbourne as Vettel seeks to put last year's disappointment behind him.

"Our optimism is not unfounded", said Red Bull motorsport consultant Helmut Marko.

"Obviously I completely understand the decision", said the Monegasque.

"It means we both have a fair shot". The driver, whose team will also score an extra point for the constructors' championship, must finish in the top 10.

"I think it was quite clear, however it's hard to know what everyone's doing, so naturally we won't fully know until we get out in the auto tomorrow and, come qualifying you get a better picture". "We have work to do".

He said: "We're free to race like every single year so that was even said at the beginning of... back at the factory and it's repeated today and that's how I like it". It's a long way.

But he added: "It's a tough weekend ahead of us".

Ferrari won the Australian GP in 2018 and they could be a bit quicker once again. "I'm confident the auto will be better here [than in testing], but if it's enough, we'll find out". [And] I think it's a case of adding pure performance, but even then we know we haven't unlocked the full potential of the auto.

"In this regard we are more prepared".
