Ferrari in better shape than 2018: Vettel

Australian Grand Prix 2019 – Live TV Coverage on Sky Sports F1 Highlights on Channel 4

"The name of this year's vehicle, the SF90, is already a celebration of this anniversary and, on top of that (we have) made a decision to honour this achievement in an even more evident manner in Melbourne", Ferrari said in a statement.

The 2019 Formula 1 season gets underway this weekend with the Australian Grand Prix.

The 2019 Formula 1 season commences in Melbourne this weekend, and Nielsen has released a report examining the value of one of Australia's major sporting events. More faithful followers of the sport can also visit the Legends Lane, the Grand Prix Motor Show and the Auto Avenue Car Clubs to further immerse themselves in the experience. "We don't know what they've got up their sleeve".

Mercedes, seeking to become the first Formula One team to take six successive title doubles, will throw everything at Ferrari, who can afford none of the mistakes of 2018.

Daniel Ricciardo will also hope for better luck at his home race in the yellow and black of Renault, having missed a maiden podium in Melbourne with Red Bull previous year when he was hit with a three-place grid penalty for a minor technical infringement.

"I'm looking forward to continuing the dialogue to make sure that it stays in Melbourne ... my view is it's certainly not going to go across the border into New South Wales".

Ferrari have failed to capitalise on situations in the past two years when they were poised to run Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton close for the titles but stumbled through driver or team errors. The Aussie fans have great energy: they love F1 and we get a great welcome when we arrive at the circuit each morning.

"We try to turn the page - we obviously had our weaknesses last year and we tried to fix those and do much better this year".

"What we see from testing, we think so", said Bottas when the notion of Mercedes being the underdogs was suggested.

At a bumpy street circuit where overtaking has been hard, F1 bosses will hope the introduction of new rules can inject spice. "We think they're going to be strong because Honda looks strong now as well and they've always had a good vehicle". [And] I think it's a case of adding pure performance, but even then we know we haven't unlocked the full potential of the auto. Even without any upgrades, just getting the auto nicer to drive, better balanced and more stable, there will be performance from that.

Buoyed by blistering speed at recent testing, Vettel sounded confident he could finally threaten Mercedes' five-time world champion Lewis Hamilton's dominance in 2019. After all, they have yet to be beaten to a world championship in the five-year history of Formula 1's hybrid era.

1 - Should Charles Leclerc not finish at the AusGP, he would be the first to retire in his debut race for Ferrari since Schumacher in 1996 (Australia).
