With pre-season testing now over, attention turns to the opening race of the 2016 Formula 1 season in Melbourne, Australia on March 20 – but a number of questions still remain unanswered.

Testing offered some kind of clue as to how the pecking order may shake up this year, with Mercedes once again appearing to lead the way.
