Last weekend the engine of the Formula One circus roared in anger for the first time in 2012. The new F1 season kickedoff in Melbourne, Australia and I’ll be honest, I did not see the whole race as I’m a little bit pre-occupied with my week old daughter. What I do know is that Red Bull’s dominance seems to be over, most cars look very ugly with the duck noses and McLaren is looking very strong. The boys from Woking dominated the qualifying and it was only through some bad luck during the pit stop timing that they did not score a one two finish. After the laps were driven Button took home the win, with Vettel coming in second just ahead of Hamilton. Next stop, Malaysia.
