Oh well opening practice in Mexico. Not sure where we will finish up but can't imagine it will be much better than in the US. But I have known to be wrong.

Well 18th & 19th is not surprising. Rest of the weekend is most likely going to see Williams slowest.

Fairly predictable. Another win for Verstappen?

Renault and Force India likely to be best of the rest here . . . always good for Perez at his home race.

That's if Renault stay reliable though, which is a big if.

Not much you can say about Williams.

Oh dear. Renault woes again. Maybe RICs turn to win.

That Sauber has popped up again. Even Ericsson was in the top ten. We should be on the phone to Zander.

Talking about other midfielders, once we were set to get James Key and everybody here (me included) was excited about his abilities.But now looking that STR chasis, and also their last year car you see no one can do magics if the team around the guy is not good enough.

Neither of those cars had a Mercedes engine

Irrelevant.They never had Mercedes engine and a good chasis can always shine regardless of the engine behind.
In fact a more powerful unit can mask the problems of the aero and give you a wrong conclusion.

Far from irrelevant. Even in 2016 they had a 2015 engine. They've had less power, reliability and driveability every season and have done a respectable job every year. I think most people would agree that Toro Rosso do an excellent job with their aero work. I don't think anyone is as good as force India value for money wise.

Exactly, they never had a good engine at the back and were able to make good chasis for a couple of years.
Since last season, specially this year they're nowhere.
Not to get anything away from James Key.just a point out to the fact that some were wishing he was our choice instead of Paddy Lowe & he ain't no magician.Things could go wrong as much as our current form..

Yeah but James Key's mind could have already been somewhere else this year because he knew that he will be leaving Toro Rosso so this could explain why they are nowhere.
Could be also that he wasnt so keen on having Honda so he started looking for a job at McLaren who was ditching them.

I think it's fair to say that everywhere James Key has been he's made some difference and the input has been positive.

He's had some funny situations at STR . . . warring drivers, Kvat's breakdown . . . and last season Renault reliability was dire. So he seems to function not badly in adversity.

Can't remember exactly . . . not sure Williams were prepared to wait for the extended gardening leave.

They got 4th place in Bahrain. Most if their races have begun from last place. They are 8th despite the amount of tech Ferrari have shared with Sauber and despite Sauber arguably now having the best engine on the grid. All from a car with a fraction if the budget, horsepower and a conversion plate to bolt on the red bull gearbox
