Here is a report of the Australian Grand Prix Race


The 2013 Formula 1 season started this last Sunday, on the 17th of March at the Albert Park Circuit. So that you know, the rules have remained almost exactly the same in comparison with last year. In terms of performance the situation also seemed familiar as at first, world champion Sebastian Vettel was leading the race in his Red Bull. Most teams have followed a 3-stop strategy, but the Lotus team and Kimi Raikkonen have decided to make only two stops. In fact, the driver had an incredible race managing to preserve his Pirelli tires well enough to lead the race. Fernando Alonso from Ferrari challenged him after his last pit stop and even so, he was able increase his lead from 7.7 to 9.8 seconds and took the chequered flag. The winner declared that this was one of the easiest races he has done to win. He also said that it is a bit difficult to know when to stop and when not to, but apparently they got it just right. Fernando Alonso was very disappointed he had to settle for second and admitted a two-stop race would have been possible. Felipe Messa finished fourth, behind Vettel and so Scuderia Ferrari leads the championship with 30 points, four more than Lotus.



Vettel was really upset because he lost time being stuck Adrian Sutil and his Force India, but the fact that Mark Webber who lost ground at the start, suffered from a faulty ECU and also crossed the finish line on the 6th place, affected his the most. McLaren was really in the best mood as Jenson Button finished 9th and Sergio Perez finished 11th. Lewis Hamilton who switched to Mercedes, qualified in third place and finished fifth in the end. The second event of the Formula 1 season will take place in Malaysia on the 24th of March. Because there is not a lot of time in between the races, it will be quite interesting to see how things will evolve.
