Race Results – 2015 Australian GP

Williams’ Felipe Massa crossed the chequered flag at fourth place, ahead of debutant Felipe Nasr of Sauber F1 team. Nasr did a great job by staying ahead of the Red Bull of Daniel Riccardo who completed the top six.

Nico Hulkenberg stayed ahead on the track of Marcus Ericsson finishing seventh and eighth respectively. Carlos Sainz and Sergio Perez followed them respectively while Jenson Button brought up the rear end of the pack.
With only 15 cars on the grid at the start of the race, there were a total of four retirements due to mechanical failures and a collision at the start of the race.

A collisionat turn 1, between Felipe Nasr of Sauber and Pastor Maldonado of Lotus Renault, Maldonado became the innocent victim and hit the tire barrier after getting hit at the rear end by Nasr, causing the pack to get held behind the safety car at the start of the race.

The Lotus F1 team, had a double DNF after a promising qualifying session on Saturday. A ding dong battle between Raikkonnen and Riccardo ensued throughout the race, although Raikkonnen was forced to retire just after pitting on lap 41.

The promised battle between Hamilton and Rosberg, didn’t live up toit’s standards and they were on conservative mode on the latter stages of the race. All in all, this race further solidified the expected domination of Mercedes in this season. (Shubham& Aniket)
