In this video I review the classic 2012 Australian Grand Prix.
The race begins with a much differing start as Mclaren Mercedes Driver Jenson Button beat his team mate Lewis Hamilton down to the first turn.
Hamilton started ahead of Button on the front row in Melbourne. As we got 3 laps into the race we managed to capture clear evidence that at the time F1 world champion Red Bull Driver Sebastian Vettel could pull off great overtakes as he pulled off a great move on Mercedes Driver Nico Rosberg.
A couple of corners later Lotus Driver Romain Grosjean was knocked out of the race by everyone’s favourite bandit – Williams F1 Pastor – Maldonado and the action would not end there as Red Bull Driver Sebastian Vettel continued to struggle with his 2012 Red Bull car as he went off the track and was almost passed by the driver.
He passed a couple laps before Mercedes Driver Nico Rosberg. But as Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel got going he caught seven time legendary World Champion Mercedes Driver – Michael Schumacher – who’s car broke down meaning that Sebastian Vettel completed an exceptionally easy overtake.
The battling though would not end there as Ferrari Driver Felipe Massa, Lotus Driver Kimi Raikkonen and Sauber Driver Kamui Kobayashi would end up having a great race long battle in Melbourne which was interrupted by the introduction of the Safety Car due to the broken down Caterham of Heikki Kovalainen.
This was bad news for Mclaren Mercedes Lewis Hamilton as he was jumped in the pit stops by Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel with it finishing that way in the top 3 as Mclaren Mercedes Jenson Button won the 2012 Australian Grand Prix from Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel with Lewis Hamilton completing the podium in Melbourne.
But the race ended in manic circumstances as Williams F1 Driver Pastor Maldonado crashed on the last lap whilst chasing Ferrari Driver Fernando Alonso and then the battle for 6th,7th,8th,9th,10th,11th went down to the line between Sauber Driver Kamui Kobayashi, Lotus Driver Kimi Raikkonen, Sauber Driver Sergio Perez, Toro Rosso Driver Daniel Ricciardo, Force India Driver Paul Di Resta and Toro Rosso Driver Jean Eric Vergne.
The 2012 Australian Grand Prix was certainly an interesting one which would set the tone for a thrilling 2012 Formula One Season
