  Not an exciting start to the F1 season
Updated 09 March 2004, 09.51
Michael Schumacher wins the Australia Grand Prix
The 2004 F1 season has kicked off with the first race being held in Australia.

Hannah is a massive fan of the sport and in her report she gives her predictions for this year's championship.

"It's that time again, where huge hunks of aerodynamic carbon fibre hurtle round stretches of tarmac at break neck speeds.

The last grand prix season was one of the most exciting I'd seen in a long while.

And I hope that further rule changes would improve the sport even more, however, only time will tell.

Overall I don't think the first race of the season was as exciting as it could have been, with the scarlet Ferraris careering away into the distance to leave the rest of the field to fight for the less prestigious places.

New winners

I would personally like to see a variety of drivers winning this season; Kimi Raikkonen, who came within points of disrupting Michael Schumacher's sixth world title.

Juan Pablo Montoya is the only other candidate I can see fit for challenging for the world title. Only reckless moments spoil his chances as often daring manoeuvres induce 'coming togethers' with the opposing driver.

There is a lot of praise for Jenson Button in the Formula One paddock, and he has the potential to become a future world champion.

He has not yet gained a podium finish, this being his forth season in Formula 1, but several fourth places show that he is capable of keeping up with the front runners.

Schumacher again

I can see Ferrari dominating again this season, I don't think enough has been done to alter the outcome of the races.

I envisage Michael Schumacher getting a seventh world title.

However, I foresee an interesting season in 2005 as Montoya moves to McLaren to partner Kimi Raikkonen leaving a vacant seat at Williams.

Young guns

Although this season has definite promise, I can see a brighter future for the world of Formula One in the coming season.

But in the meantime, if you're a Ferrari fan, enjoy it while it lasts, the young guns are coming!"
