#F1Chat Preview – the final test

Testing is complete and the teams are now packing up and heading to Melbourne for the first race of the 2013 season. Here’s what’s coming up on this week’s #F1Chat…

Like last week, let’s start by talking about the final test. What were your thoughts? Did any of the teams stand out to you this week? Mercedes looked quick, as did Lotus – do you think they could be contenders against Red Bull this year? What about Ferrari and McLaren?

With two weeks to go until the Australian Grand Prix, we finally have a complete grid. Adrian Sutil has been confirmed by Force India alongside Paul di Resta – thoughts on this confirmation? Luiz Razia will no longer be stepping up from GP2 to F1 over problems with his financial backing. What do you make of this? And what does this mean for F1, after all, money talks, but has it made a joke out of the sport? Do you think we’ll see Razia back in GP2 this season or is it too late? Will we see him back in F1 in the future? Marussia have signed Jules Bianchi in his place – what are your thoughts on this and what does it mean for the team? Could this help Marussia with their 2014 engine plans with Jules Bianchi’s link to Ferrari?

Finally, Ferrari are predicting some shocks in Melbourne following uncertainty over the new Pirelli tyres. Now that testing is over, what are you predicting for the first round of the season?

Join us tomorrow at the usual time of 4pm Eastern US, 9pm UK. Follow @F1Chat for the questions and answer using the #F1Chat hashtag! We’ll see you tomorrow…
