The 2016 season of Formula One kicked off in Melbourne, Australia, with disastrous results beginning with the elimination-style qualifiers, which team bosses deemed to be disastrous for the drivers. Because of such notice, they are reverting back to old-school qualifying in Bahrain next month. What's even more terrifying at the start of this season is the sudden airborne rollover by McLaren-Honda's Fernando Alonso during his overtake with Esteban Gutierrez from the new Haas F1 team. Luckily though, both drivers survived the horrid accident. Other mishaps in the opener include Red Bull's Daniil Kvyat, whose F1 car failed to start before the race began and Kimi Raikkonen from Ferrari, whose car caught on fire during pitstop.

Despite Sebastian Vettel's flying start, the two Mercedes-AMG drivers are triumphant at the terrifying season opener in Australia. Rosberg's placed 1st while Hamilton's placed 2nd. Vettel's in third place. Other finishers include Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, Williams' Felipe Massa, Romain Grosjean from the new Haas F1 team, newcomer Nico Hulkenberg from Force India, Valtteri Bottas from Williams, Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz Jr., and Max Verstappen.

The next race is set at Bahrain on the 3rd of April, 2016.
