"The consensus in the paddock was that Ferrari, led by four-time champion Vettel and starved of championship glory for more than a decade, held the advantage following a promising eight days of pre-season testing in Barcelona," says The Times . "But Hamilton's blistering pace round Albert Park would appear to point to the contrary. "Indeed Britain's triple world champion, who is bidding to reclaim the crown he lost to bitter rival Nico Rosberg last year, finished both sessions an eye-watering half a second clear of his rivals." It was an "ominous" start to the season, says Giles Richards of The Guardian . "It was hoped the new regulations for 2017 would narrow the advantage Mercedes held but on this admittedly very early form, they are starting just where they left off last season." But the fact that Vettel was quicker than Hamilton's new Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas is cause for optimism, says the Daily Telegraph .

MELBOURNE: Lewis Hamilton sizzled in the opening practice sessions at the Australian Grand Prix as he sent an ominous message to his rivals for the new Formula One season on Friday. The triple world champion bossed the field in the afternoon run to hold a half-second gap over Ferrari title rival Sebastian Vettel and his new Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas. Hamilton followed up his field-leading fastest lap of 1:24.220 in the first session with a blistering 1:23.620 around Albert Park in the late afternoon. It was around one-tenth of a second off Vettel's record lap in Melbourne of 1:23.529, posted for Red Bull in qualifying ahead of his 2011 race victory. Ferrari were expected to press Hamilton and the Mercedes team after superior times in pre-season testing, but on the evidence of the opening two sessions Hamilton again looked the driver to beat in Sunday's race.

997, lapping the track at an average speed of 132mph. With a warm climate in late March, Melbourne’s changeable weather can bring heavy rain, although this year the forecast promises dry racing to really test out the new tyres. The Track: Albert Park, Melbourne Late summer in Melbourne is the perfect time of year for a beer in Albert Park. The fact there is also a Formula 1 race going on sweetens the deal, perhaps explaining why the Australian round is always so popular with teams and drivers. Based around a unique combination of public roads and dedicated track surface, Albert Park sits just south east of Melbourne’s central business district. The track loops around the Albert Park lake and golf course, and is both fast and technical. Lacking any major elevation change, overtaking can be tricky, but brave moves are possible, promoting a generally eventful race.

Note: You can read a translation below. Happiness, as it has been conceived for at least the past couple thousand years in Western philosophy, is a problem. For the Greeks, happiness was only one component of Eudaimonia , a general human flourishing that must be developed along with ethics, personal growth, and social and civic duty in order for a life to have purpose and meaning. “Positive psychology speakerDr. Nico Rose reminds us that the concept contrasts with Hedonia (as in “hedonism”), which relates solely to personal pleasure and enjoyment, such as the kind famously indulged in by many an ancient tyrant. These are not mutually exclusive categories. “Meaningful experiences can certainly bring about pleasure,” writes Rose, “and taking care of ourselves can certainly add meaning to our lives.” We should, he cautionsrefrain from equating the pursuit of hedonia with shallowness.
