The Formula One season kicked off in style in Australia this weekend. The new cars and drivers posed for photographs before showing the world who was hot and who was not, but not before torrential rains forced qualifying to be postponed to the morning of the race. The race saw a little bit of rain, but not enough to turn it upside down. After all the laps had been raced Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen crossed the line first followed by Vettel and Alonso.
