Waiting for experiencing the second Grand Prix of the season, in Sepang on March the 29th, we come back to Melbourne to give votes.
Lewis Hamilton – 10 What else. World Championship has started with pole, fast lap and win.
Mercedes – 10 Although it declares an ashtoniting turnover, 400.000.000,00€, taking advantage of it and sealing its first double of the season. Mercedes maintains an advantage that will be immense.
Nico Rosberg – 8 Against an unchained Lewis Williams, he could do very little, also with a small mistake in Qualifying.
Felipe Massa – 8 Well done in Qualifying. Unfortunately, Williams’ arguable strategy ruined his race. To Williams goes 7 in conduct.
Sebastian Vettel – 8 He optimized the material provided by Ferrari. There’s still a lot to do, because a gap of 1”40 in Qualifying and 34” at the finish line are too much. The third place is always good placing and it gives the right incentive to go on the recover.
Felipe Nasr (Sauber) and Carlos Sainz Jr (Toro Rosso) 8 – Excellent debut, in Qualifying and in the race. They have given to their respective teams important points already in the opening race.
Daniel Ricciardo – 7 He didn’t lose the heart, despite a Renault Power Unit that is not up to competition. He brought his Red Bull to the sixth position.
Lotus – 6 to encourage him, in order to enter the Top 10 in Qualifying
McLaren – no vote, with the hope to be able to vote it positively from next weekend.
