At first glance, the first race of the Championship 2011 of Formula one from the FIA seems to distill a direct fight between Red Bull and Ferrari, as well as in 2010. McLaren MP4-26 Melbourne has brought in an effort to overcome their difficulties in the evidence, and the expression of Ross Brawn suggests that the update that Mercedes led to the recent test in Barcelona really has excited team. Asked what he thought now in innovative exhaust system, Brawn gave a big smile and said: to be honest, we have been so focused on our last update that actually had not had much time to think about it yet. But our modifications certainly seemed to work! And he added:…Our pre-season program has gone as well as he might have wanted to however, as always, the first race will be the real measure of where we are in terms of competitiveness around the world is waiting anxiously to see how the network strikes in Melbourne, and where we find ourselves, we are going to respond accordingly. Our ability to react with force has improved considerably in the last 12 months and we have a robust development plan in place. Meanwhile, at Red Bull, the champion of the world is eager to go.None of us has promoted in the whole circuit of Melbourne on Pirelli tires before, so all we ask ourselves what will happen, said Sebastian Vettel. It is the beginning of something new.
I think that the only thing we can say with certainty is that it will be different and create a great interest. Usually a hard tire track, so I think it is something that we are going to have to keep an eye during the race. Melbourne has a couple of things to keep in mind: the theme requires good braking stability and some of the corners are a little rough.
