Red Bull have won the first three grands prix of 2023, twice through reigning champion Max Verstappen who is seeking a third consecutive title.
But, after a horrible start to the year, Mercedes finally clocked a result to be truly proud of when Lewis Hamilton finished second, behind Verstappen, last time out in Australia.
Was that a red herring? Or a sign that Hamilton is back and could push for me? Time will tell.
Fernando Alonso has been on the podium in every race so far this season and must be dreaming of taking his Aston Martin to a monumental race win.
This race weekend is the first of the season to feature a sprint race.
