It is also a farewell to many who will not pay for to see F1 in 2016 after the purchase exclusive rights for Movistar.

The world is already decided, so that little can change in this race except for some struggles like Force India and Toro Rosso, or of Valtteri Bottas and Kimi Räikkönen. Both finns are struggling to get the fourth place of the world. Other positions are already determined. In addition, the situation has not changed, with Mercedes very strong and favourites for this race, in addition to the Ferrari, which have also been shown competitive.

we have Also seen many tests of the equipment with the multitude of rakes with sensors, and new parts of face-to-2016. McLaren continues with its peculiar problems of reliability and power loss. Fernando Alonso complained on the radio of power loss, but at least you have not lost too much.

we will See that happens tomorrow in free practice 3 and qualifying. In addition, remember that this season 2015 is dismissed with three spaniards on track again. Roberto is back up to the Manor in the car of Alexander Rossi, since that was the other race that she had to play according to the agreement I had with the team.
