If it's an attrition race like they keep saying, I'm hoping we see Marussia and Caterham get points.

I want to see Kimi win it again.

also, 4000 posts Very Happy

There's a big possibility that nobody will finish because of fuel mileage. And there won't be VETTELWINSLOL!

Ferrari are best on fuel economy, so I would expect a win from Alonso is quite likely.

These F1 cars sound like the current IndyCars. As far as the race is concerned, regardless of what happens, I think we'll be in for a VERY exciting race.

Hamilton has the pole for the Australian GP with Ricciardo in his first race in a Red Bull on the outside.


This qualifying session was pretty good.

Crazy start. Hamilton's already out. Rosberg, Ricciardo, Magnussen in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. I can't imagine how crazy things will get from here.

And now Vettel's out!  Shocked

I was honestly expecting a closer battle for the lead but it was still a good race. Good runs for Ricciardo and Magnussen, as well as Bottas.

Good race. Pure madness in the start but eventually calmed down.

Nico Rosberg with dominating performance, nice to see him run well. Daniel Riccardo on the podium...I expected it to happen eventually but not straight out of the gate and KEVIN MAGNUSSEN...I didn't see that coming at all.

Red Bull are appealing the disqualification. As much as I dislike Red Bull and their personnel, I do feel bad for Riccardo as it was a situation that was out of his control.
At his home Grand Prix no less!
But considering the FIA said there would be strict fuel limitations, you would think they wouldn't take any chances...

Well, Ricciardo has been excluded from the Australian GP after the fuel failure.

Valterri Bottas is one to watch in the years to come. He obviously got help from the safety car his wheel brought out, but he went from 16th to 5th.

Glad it was the somewhat likable Silver Arrows driver that took the checkers!

No chance of Ricciardo's DSQ being appealed. It's Red Bull's own damn fault - they were told by the FIA about the problem and ignored them. Massive shame for Ricciardo.

As for Kevin Magnussen, well, he didn't win, but I had pretty high expectations of him this race, and he met them. Smile

Great win for Rosberg. And thankfully everyone calmed down after the craziness that was the first few laps.

Bottas definitely impressed today too. He seemed like he had the only car that could pass, then he hit the wall, brings out a safety car, and passes everyone again. This might bode well for Williams.

I haven't seen a highlight reel of the race yet, but it seems like Magnussen's podium finish is more popular than the actual race winner. It's impressive, though, no doubt about it. Wink
