The new season promises to be an exciting one, with new cars being wider, louder and faster and bigger tyres adding to grip, corner speed and excitement.

After the first practice sessions, world-champions Mercedes seem to be fasted, challenged by Ferrari and Red Bull. It remains to be seen who is really quick enough to challenge the silver arrows drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas when qualifying starts Saturday afternoon, 5PM Melbourne time.


Whilst our Neuschwansteiner is not yet available in Australia (it can be ordered online and shipped world-wide however from Feinkost Käfer and BOS Food, our bottle enjoys the late summer sun down under.
