Formula One season starts in Melbourne

March 28, 2017

The 2017 formula season has roared into life with the opening round taking place in Melbourne.

Ferrari driver, and four time champion, Sebastian Vettel won the opening race from Lewis Hamilton.

The German cruised to his 43rd race victory 10 seconds ahead of Mercedes’ Hamilton, while new Mercedes driver, Valtteri Bottas, was third.

It was Vettel’s fourth win for Ferrari and his first since the Singapore Grand Prix in September 2015.

Hamilton got away fast at the start but got stuck behind some traffic after his first pit stop. This proved to be the turning point of the race as it enable Vettel to establish a healthy lead.
