Albert Park had an action packed Grand Prix! Find out who succeeded in the Australian heat and which drivers struggled

The Australian Grand Prix never disappoints! It was an action packed race... here are the highlights:

  • Max Verstappen suffered a SHOCK exit after lap 3
    • He suffered an engine failure
  • Lewis Hamilton also suffered engine failure and had to retire the car on lap 17
    • This brought out the VSC
  • The Ferraris and Mclarens had very strong races and demonstrated quick race pace
  • Valtteri Bottas and Guanyu Zhou both experienced slow pitstops as the design of the bolts aren't working with the wheel guns
    • This is a design issue that Kick Sauber is trying to fix
  • Pierre Gasly was given a five second time penalty for crossing the white line at the end of the pitlane
  • Carlos Sainz dominated the whole weekend to lead his team to a Ferrari 1-2 with Charles Leclerc finishing in second
  • Lando Norris finished the race in 3rd position, just ahead of his teammate Oscar Piastri

*Fernando Alonso finished the race in 6th position but was handed a 20 second time penalty for the incident with George Russell. This demoted him to P8.
