    Hopefully, the season-opening race will be exciting even if the race win is Max's to lose & the new season as a whole could well be largely one-sided like the last.

    What is wrong witnessing greatness? Every team has the same budget to work with. Watching a great driver, drive a phenomenal car is amazing. No one ever complained year after year about Mercedes winning every race. No accusations about cheating or how boring the races were. What RB has is a combination of pure driving talent and a genius desgner
    What is boring is hearing childish whining about no competition.
