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!
Friday practice for theChinese Grand Prix was again dominated by the Brawn GP team with Button and Barrichello second and third fastest respectively in the first free practice session and first and third fastest in the second practice session. Williams driver Nico Rosberg again put in an impressive performance finishing second fastest behind Button in the final practice session.
