Lewis Hamilton Wins Aussie Grand Prix

News taken from http://www.planet-f1.com

Lewis Hamilton has taken victory - and a hefty points lead over Kimi Raikkonen - with a flawless performance in the Australian GP.

One of the few drivers in the field not to endure some sort of drama on a spectacular return for F1, Hamilton delivered a perfect display of frontrunning to secure the win. Yet while Hamilton prospered, Ferrari suffered a nightmare afternoon with Ice Man Kimi Raikkonen melting in the Melbourne sunshine. The Finn twice slid off the track and then failed to finish the race due to engine failure. The World Champions showed they have the pace to challenge - and possibly beat - McLaren but leave Australia with plenty of problems to dwell on.

The story of the race - apart from the glorious havoc brought on by a lack of traction control - was the roll of the dice provided by three Safety Car periods, which sidelined Robert Kubica, robbed Heikki Kovalainen of second place, but allowed Nico Rosberg to claim his forst podium and Fernando Alonso to gain an unlikely fourth place. Kovalainen eventually finished the race in fifth place followed home by Rubens Barrichello who faces disqualification after exiting the pitlane when the exit light was on red.

Only seven cars were running at the chequered flag.
