The 2015 Formula One World Championship curtain raiser will take place this weekend in Australia.

Winter testing is over and the next time the Formula One cars will hit the track will be in Melbourne for the first round of the new season.

Mercedes look like their dominance from last year will continue, but have Williams and Ferrari closed the gap?

Those three teams certainly looked the most competitive in winter testing, whilst Red Bull Racing may well have taken a step backwards whilst continuing to be hampered by the Renault engine.

Will two-time Formula One World Championship Lewis Hamilton begin his defence with a victory? Will team-mate Nico Rosberg strike the first blow or will someone cause an upset?

Who will win this weekend?
