Sunday - Form Guide

Red Bull Racing

Qualifying: Sebastian Vettel pole position (1:23.529), Mark Webber 3rd (1:24.395)

The form: Vettel’s 16th pole and second in a row at Albert Park may have been the most impressive of his career, but it’s on Sundays where the 23-year-old world champion has struggled in Australia. Webber was downcast after being thrashed to the tune of 0.866secs by his teammate on Saturday, but is still in a strong position for a maiden top-three finish at home.


Sauber drivers Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi, who finished seventh and eighth at Albert Park on Sunday, have been disqualified because of a ‘technical infringement’.

The stewards’ decision promotes Ferrari’s Felipe Massa to seventh and Toro Rosso’s Sébastien Buemi to seventh and eighth respectively, with Force India’s two drivers Adrian Sutil and rookie Paul di Resta now ninth and tenth.

Webber: “I wish it was already tomorrow”

Australian confused after lacklustre fifth-place finish in home race

Local hope Mark Webber can’t wait to go racing again – and forget a frustrating fifth-place finish after starting from third place on the grid.

The 34-year-old equalled his best finish at Albert Park but was left disappointed after teammate Sebastian Vettel dominated the race from pole. Webber trailed the reigning World Champion by an enormous 38.171secs at the end of the race, and was at a loss to explain his lack of pace.

Vettel: ‘We have to keep coming here’

Race winner Sebastian Vettel had a very clear set of priorities when he faced the world’s media after winning the Australian Grand Prix for the first time.

“First of all I’m very happy because I think all of us in the team had a lot of fun today and we won the Australian Grand Prix – it’s really always very nice to come here, the atmosphere is something special,” the 23-year-old Red Bull star said.

Vettel flies as Webber Marks time

He’s going to take some catching…

Sebastian Vettel cruised to the 11th victory of his F1 career in the 2011 Formula One Qantas Australian Grand Prix at Melbourne’s Albert Park as Red Bull Racing team-mate Mark Webber was disappointed to do no better than match his previous best result of fifth in his home race.

A delighted Vettel finished at Albert Park for the first time and excitedly laid hands on the trophy he has coveted ever since he started coming to Australia – though it wasn’t what he was hoping for.

Webber draws first blood

Australia’s Mark Webber has made a point by topping the timing charts in the opening free practice session of the 2011 Formula 1 World Championship at Albert Park.

The Red Bull Racing star left it till the final seconds of the 90-minute session to clock his personal best of 1 minute 26.831 secs, getting the better of team-mate and reigning World Champion Sebastian Vettel by three-tenths of a second on an overcast day in Melbourne.
