  • Mercedes looking to rain on Ferrari's parade in Melbourne season-opener

Mercedes have admitted that they expect to be "pushed to their limits" by Ferrari this year after their rivals emerged from pre-season testing with the quickest auto.

Brawn, once an ultra-successful Ferrari technical director, says the death of president Sergio Marchionne badly affected the Italian team a year ago.

The Silver Arrows introduced a raft of updates in the second test and soon began to increase their pace.

Sebastian Vettel and the Scuderia will be looking to end Hamilton's dominance this season and, while insisting Mercedes did not have it easy last term, Wolff recognises their threat.

However, this weekend's Australian Grand Prix follows hot on the heels of testing in Barcelona where Ferrari were consistently faster than Mercedes. Wolff believes the 2019 season will be defined by a battle of who adapts and develops the best under the new regulations.

Red Bull finished 236 points behind champion Mercedes last season, the team only winning four races across the year. In the past two years Ferrari has not even needed to have the fastest auto to win in Melbourne, so the prospect of it holding an advantage over Mercedes is ominous.

Mercedes chief Toto Wolff is well aware of the challenge his team have on their hands to retain their Formula One title as the new season gets under way in Melbourne.

Having won 11 of 21 races last season, another F1 title would put Hamilton one shy of Michael Schumacher's record of seven and stir the debate about the greatest racer of all time.

"We're ready for the fight and look forward to the insane rollercoaster of a new F1 season".
