Australian GP - "Come on guys, brilliant stuff. What a car you've given me."

Stoked by

Damon Hill - good to see him again and he's clearly done well with the focus groups as we're seeing more of him.
Rookies - Magnussen for his 4th place on the grid, finishing 2nd and overtake around the outside of (an admittedly flailing) Hamilton.  Kvyat for his 7th place on the grid and top 10 finish.
Chilton - for overtaking Vettel
The return of poor reliability - 14 finishers, we're back to the 1990s when you could justifiably will a driver to have an engine failure.
Ricciardo's pit cam
No tyre deg chat
Eloquence - Rosberg (first language: German) was "over the moon", Magnussen (first language: Danish) had a "surreal" race and Ricciardo (first language: English) was "tripping balls".

Gutted by

Drivers choosing their own numbers - I keep thinking Hamilton is running 44th etc.  It will take me a while to adjust.
Cold boiled potatoes - the pre-race snack of winners (Rosberg)
Funny new systems - why was Ricciardo's car shuddering on the grid?
Early penalties - before the season had even started really, Bottas and Grosjean were both penalised.
Kobabashi - nothing exciting about the return of this driver, especially when he took a Williams off with him.
The Hokey Cokey - as performed by Hamilton: in, out, in, out, shake it all about.
The return of poor reliability - when will it strike Williams?
