Well, I went to Australia especially anticipating the performances of Lewis Hamilton and Anthony Davidson - and I wasn't disappointed!
Just about everywhere you go everyone wants to know about 'that new lad Hamilton'. Most had never heard of him pre-Melbourne which, sadly, tells you all you need to know about the profile of motorsport below F1.
I know it's something of a cliche, but more than once Lewis has been touted as potentially the Tiger Woods of motor racing. The analogy is perhaps a little uncomfortable in that today, in the noughties, skin colour should have no significance whatsoever.
But, without wanting to heap yet more pressure of expectation on Lewis - although I fear it's already too late - the analogy does appear valid. Forget skin colour, I'm talking talent level.
