This weekend, we are back in Europe.
I know that Azerbaijan is technically there but this is where the team bring out their new toys for their weapons.
Will Ferrari again show their pace in qualifying and then fail in he race?
Will Mercedes again rise to the top and continue their dominance of the podiums?
One thing we know for sure is that Daniel Ricciardo has a grid penalty for his incident with Daniil Kvyat.
So, what will we see in Barcelona?
Expect all teams to be substantially quicker than pre-season testing. I would think that McLaren has made some of the biggest gains.
Haas, Racing Point and even Alfa Romeo are starting to show some form.
The Honda teams are also going forward after some much needed reliability has been found.
And Williams. The only way they can go is up.

What a stunning lap from Valtteri Bottas.
To be 6 tenths of a second clear of the field in a head to head shootout.
