And I just noticed , Alonso has competition for "The Eyebrow" award ! Go Esteban !

Noticed that the Sauber had some some extra inlets next to the main inlet behind the drivers head, saw something similar on Lotus too, havent seen any pictures which show if any of the other teams have similar pieces - Guesses as to function ?

Going by Checo's words, seems there will be pitstops galore in every race. I don't think 7-10 stops per car will make for a good racing spectacle.

It'll improve. Since 2011, pretty much every pre-season test has been about how terrible the tyres were supposedly going to be. Yet it is always better than expected by the time they get to the first race of the year.

Some of the other drivers, like Kimi, have said the degradation is completely normal and it'll be fine. I guess degradation will be better in the races because there will be more rubber down, higher temperatures and the teams will have a better understanding anyway.
