Six races down, five wins to Jenson Button, and already some folks are suggesting this season is in danger of becoming boring.
The teams at the top of the time-charts may have changed, but the prospect of one man winning race in, race out, has led some to argue some of the joie-de-vivre has been sucked out of the sport in much the same way as when Michael Schumacher was dominating in his Ferrari in the early '00s.
You know what? Those naysayers reckon without Sebastian Vettel, Felipe Massa, Mark Webber, Jarno Trulli, Kimi Raikkonen et al, says me...
So could this be the race that throws the cat firmly amongst the pigeons?
All four winners at Istanbul Park have started on pole in previous years - and today that honour befalls Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, not Jenson Button.
We now know from the fuel loads, though, that the Briton remains the fastest man on the track and, given he is heavier by two laps than his German rival, strategically the Brawn GP driver could have an advantage. Button is due to pit on lap 17, alongside Red Bull's Mark Webber, with Vettel 15 - a lap earlier than Button's team-mate Rubens Barrichello.
And then there's Ferrari pair Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa to consider, as well as Toyota's Jarno Trulli.
This race might just prove a right royal tear-up.
Let me know your thoughts and I'll see if I can't make you web famous for 15 minutes. Cheers folks!
