Are Merc ready to deliver? Just how bad will it be for Vettel? And could Williams really win Down Under?
With an underperforming car and a new team-mate, Sebastian Vettel faces a new reality in 2014.

Can you hear it? You know, the sound of jubilant football fans bouncing off the walls at all the off-season excitement, with wild stories of free agent signings and imminent draft picks?
Break open another case of Bud and rev those engines 'til they smoke. We've got ourselves a sport again!
Now we know - the NFL actually CAN control the weather.
It just goes to show, you can spend all week and a million words setting up what you think is the perfect pre-game scenario - and then the action actually starts and everything you thought you thought is thrown out of the window.
It was almost inevitable that it came down to this in all the pre-game hype and hoopla - Peyton Manning v Richard Sherman, and the Great Duck Debate of 2014.
It's the kind of statement that really gets your attention: "And the morning is likely to see things at a dangerous level."
There is a famous 'shootout' scene in the classic comedy western 'My Name Is Nobody' where Terence Hill ('Nobody') stares down a two-gun toting villain in bewildering fashion.
Forget Super Bowl XLVIII - this week is all about XV. Manning-Brady XV, that is, the fifteenth meeting of the great NFL rivals, with a trip to the big game at stake.
I'm tempted just to repeat most of what I said in last week's column. This season is sponsored by a combination of The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits - it is packed full of the weird, the wacky and the outright unbelievable.
There are around 25,000 high schools in America, the vast majority of which have major sports programmes. This year's NFL rosters were drawn from 1,370 of them, in 48 states (plus from six other countries and American Samoa).
OK, after the wildest of final weeks, we have reached the regular season finish line. There were stunning finishes almost everywhere you looked as each of Baltimore, Miami, Chicago and Dallas woefully failed their post-season auditions.
In Charles Dickens' famous novel, 'A Tale of Two Cities', the great Victorian writer contrasted the stories of London and Paris in the late 18th century. It sold 200 million copies (and counting) and is rated as one of the most illuminating works of its age.
Just call it Shocking Sunday, a day when a number of in-form, in vogue, in-the-zone teams marched into Week 16 NFL battle - and produced something insipid, incomprehensible and indescribable.
Introducing Week 16 in the NFL, a tragi-comedy in eight parts (otherwise known as divisions), loaded with drama and full-on theatrics, played on the big stage and with an invitation to this year's Oscars (aka, the play-offs) at stake.
Excuse me, but what was THAT? You know, that collection of egg-laying, banana-skin-slipping, train-wrecking, late-collapsing, fan-frustrating, coach-killing, play-off-avoiding, pass-dropping, interception-throwing, head-shaking, hard-to-believe series of games that, together, was Week 15.
Do you want to know what desperate looks like?
After Moving Week, we had - Crazy Week, pure and simple. There is no other way to describe the 'you couldn't make it up' finishes at Baltimore, Green Bay, New England, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, plus some eyebrow-raising events elsewhere.
Thanks to a monstrous performance at home to New Orleans, Seattle are the first team to confirm their tickets for this year's Post-Season Ball, a four-part two-step in double-quick time.
Moving Week has sorted out much of the pigskin wheat from the chaff and we can now see the REAL contenders more clearly. The play-off ranks are filling up.
Golf has a term for it at most tournaments; Moving Day refers to the Saturday of a major event when the real contenders separate themselves from the field and make a move on the title.
