AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX

By Lee Catuzzi

In few hours the F1 engines will rev for the second qualifying of the 2010 season, Followed by tomorrow’s Grand Prix through the streets of Melbourne in Australia.
In Bahrain we saw the powerful but not so reliable (already?) Red Bull cars, the fast Ferraris and McLarens and what look like the beginning of an exciting year.

The circuit build around Albert Park Lake in Melbourne is a mixture of permanent and street track. Fairly demanding and tricky for drivers as it’s quite fast and has many challenging corners like turn 15 which consist of a very tight left turn, quite slippery in wet conditions and vital for gaining the top speed needed for the finishing straight.

So far with the new adopted point system, the table looks like this:
Alonso 25, Massa 18, Hamilton 15, Vettel 12, Rosberg 10, Schumacher 8, Button 6, Webber 4, Liuzzi 2 and Barrrichello with 1.

After some exciting qualifying times, Sebastian Vettel snatched pole from local hero Mark Webber, who did the same to him last year at the German GP.
Alonso came a very close third followed by the rest of the pack by just more than half second. Reliability and weather will play a big part tomorrow morning. It was an unlucky day for Hamilton and I am sure that when in the race he will make the best of his misfortune and be in the top five.
