So happy for Haas. I already liked Grosjean, and with them in my backyard (well, an hour south of us) it would be crazy for me not to be a fan. With a 6th place finish in race one, they definitely won me over! I realize they're going to have a tough year ahead of them, but it's great to see they might be competitive.

As for the first race... Qualifying was SHIT, but hopefully that's changing. The race was much more competitive, even with Merc. taking 1-2, and holy shit I'm happy Alonso walked away from that wreck!

Overall, a much better start to the season than expected.

Also happy for Haas & Grosjean, thinking it was a bit of luck but sometimes that's what's needed and deserved. Hoping for more. As a Dutchman I'm rooting for a good second year for Verstappen, he showed how young he is with bitching about things but if a cools down he can drive well for sure. Hoping the Ferrari power helps. More excited about this year than last.
