Mercedes was ominously quick and reliable in the three pre-season tests, with many observers predicting this year will see another Hamilton vs Rosberg showdown for the title with no-one else getting a look in. The team’s management will once again have to be at the top of its game to oversee the sometimes fractious relationship between the pair, but it really does look to be a case of when, not if, a Silver Arrows driver takes the title in 2015. Only a radical in-season improvement from another team – most likely Red Bull or Ferrari – could upset the order.

Our verdict: It looks as though Mercedes is going to start this season where it finished the last, holding a clear advantage over the rest of the field.
