    Qualifying in China began with the news that Pastor Maldonado wouldn’t be taking part.

    Italian press are today saying that Ferrari F1 boss Stefano Domenicali is about to step down from the job. The Ferrari team have struggled for the last few seasons with aerodynamic performance problems that were attributed to their wind tunnel. This year however, the F14 T is not only struggling aero wise, but the Ferrari Power Unit is no match for the Mercedes unit, and even though the Red Bull team are struggling for pace due to an arguably even worse Renault power unit, their dominance in aero has still shown the Ferrari to be slow.

There was overtaking up and down the grid, between team mates and cars with similar performance. Obviously the headline was about the Mercedes team, the race at the front was essentially over during the middle of the race, and then Pastor Maldonado flipped Gutierrez at the first corner   This brought out the safety car, and obviously bunched the pack up. To add some more excitement, the Mercedes team had the two cars on different tyre strategies.

Personally, I quiet like the sound itself. It’s definitely a more ‘high tech’ sound to racing. Having said that I do believe it perhaps needs a few more db of level, without changing the essential noise. I like that we can now hear the tyres screeching and squealing with abuse. We can…

Gone are the old V-8s, in their place smaller, turbocharged sixes and enhanced energy recovery systems. Changes in nose heights have led to a bunch of, admittedly, ugly noses, but the new power units and the end of the blown diffuser era look to have created torquey driver's cars, and quite likely enhance the show on the track. Some say the engines are too quiet, but I'm less concerned if they sound like the old cars than…
