Report card - GP Australia, Melbourne
Nico Rosberg 10: He started like a rocket exceeds Hamilton and Ricciardo and he didn't give up. The pace of the Mercedes is awesome, he brought home the victory with an ease disarmed. Ricciardo 9: Despite the ban, he finished second and he brought a smile to the red bull. Magnussen 10: The new face of F1, calm and quiet, but damn fast on the track. He reported the McLaren on the podium after over a year of absence, with the first F1 podium in the history of Denmark. Button 8: We expected something more from him during this weekend. He tenth started, but recovered well thanks to an early pit stop, and he came just a few seconds by Magnussen, however, couldn't maintain the pace of Danish. Alonso 7: More than this could not be done. On the eve of the Spanish Ferrari driver had the objective to finishing the race: he had done it, but that suffering! Bottas 8: After a qualification below what was expected on the eve, the Finnish driver is redeemed in part, in the race. The first part of the race has been very good: two good overtaking (one beautiful on the outside of Vergne and the other on Raikkonen) and a very consistent race pace. When, now, was in the discharges of Alonso, lightly touches the wall, and drill the left rear tire, losing a lot of time to get back to the pits and replace the tire. Hulkenberg 6.5: a race of ups and downs: good the first part, he seemed to be able to easily keep the fourth position, but at the pit stop, lost his position on Button and then on Alonso. Raikkonen 5: The excuses were all there, but this Kimi was a distant relative of the warrior on the track last year. Vergne 7: A good weekend for the French pilot of Toro Rosso. After the sixth-place finished in the rain in qualifying, he lost positions in the race, but saw the potential of the car and what was predicted on the eve. Maldonado, Grosjean, Hamilton, Vettel ??: With the new regulation is impossible to judge who has not arrived at the finish line because of the machines.

3ยบ-Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes)
The image is the circuit of Sepang (Malaysia) The race will be very interesting because all the pilots will drive with equals cars. In my opinion the Mercerdes Team will lead the championship this year because the cars are better than the others teams cars so i think one of the pilots in the Mercedes Team (Lewis Hamilton or Nico Rosberg) will be the champion this year. But can be difficult others pilots will fight too. Hamilton 10: he didn't make mistakes and he won the race. Rosberg 8: he arrived second but with a Mercedes it isn't a great race. Vettel 9: he did a fantastic race with a Red Bull that wasn't on top.

This race will be really exciting and interesting. The Mercedes team i think they will win the race again, their cars are better than the others pilots cars and we aready see that . The Red Bull team maybe the can´t win the next races becausse they have normals cars so i think they can´t win, but this is an opinion.
FINAL RESULTS LEWIS HAMILTON - 10 -
Win number 24 for the British driver, as Jaun Manuel Fangio. At the start, Lewis has passed Rosberg, then he only had to defend himself .
NICO ROSBERG - 9 -
Rosberg at the start has failed to keep the lead, but finished second and has gained 19 important points for the championship.
SERGIO PEREZ - 8 -
Pilot not particularly skilled with a great Force India in my opinion, however, he
came to the podium.
DANIEL RICCIARDO - 9.5 -
Ricciardo is the true revelation of this season. He does not have a very competitive car but he always comes ahead of Vettel.
FERRARI â€“ 2 -
Race embarrassing for Ferrari. Simply slow, too slow for a sport where speed is everything. Pilots can only try to bring the car to the finish line in front of the Marussia.
