L2F Race Report - Round 1 - Australian Grand Prix

The eagerly awaited season opener in Australia did not disappoint - unlike the BBC's coverage - but that's another story!

Nico Rosberg was top of the tree at both Friday practice sessions with the McLarens languishing at the bottom of the pack and the Ferraris not showing much better. The new Brawn GP team continued their good form from Winter testing despite having severe budgetary restrictions.

The usual rumble of controversy overshadowed events with several teams including Ferrari protesting at the diffuser fitted to the Brawn, Williams and Toyota cars. The race stewards decided that the difuser designs did not contravene the rules but the matter has been referred to the powers that be on appeal.

Well it wouldn't be Formula 1 I suppose if someone wasn't appealing about something!
