F1 2014: Australia GP


The F1 2014 season has begun with more twists than the last years and in the first race of the new season, held at Melbourne, Australia, Mercedes' Nico Rosberg kickstarts the season with his first win, leaving newcomer Kevin Magnussen of McLaren-Mercedes placed 2nd and teammate Jenson Button placed 3rd. During the race, Caterham's Kamui Kobayashi was cleared of any blame over his first-lap accident with Williams' Felipe Massa, saying that the Japanese racer's F1 car suffered a serious tech failure.

Originally, Red Bull Racing's new member, Daniel Ricciardo, was placed 2nd but he lost his 2nd place finish after stewards decided his car had run with too high a fuel flow rate during the race. In other words, he violated a new regulation that cars are limited to a fuel flow rate of 100kg/hour.

With Rosberg kickstarts the F1 2014 season, next race will be in Sepang, Malaysia, this March 30, 2014.
