Dan’s dream result

Ten years ago, a young Aussie scored two points on his Australian Grand Prix debut for the little Italian team known as Minardi. On Sunday at the Qantas Australian Grand Prix, another young Aussie did exactly the same thing for the team that turned from Minardi into Scuderia Toro Rosso – and did it after a first lap that could hardly have been more disastrous.

Mark Webber’s two points on debut in 2002 remains one of the most memorable moments in Albert Park history, but Daniel Ricciardo’s dream of scoring on his home debut looked to be over before it began.

Webber: Fourth better than expected

Mark Webber was pleased to achieve a career-best home result when he finished fourth in Sunday’s Australian Grand Prix, but he was more relieved than elated.

The Red Bull driver made a slow start from fifth on the grid and found himself in the seemingly annual first-corner Albert Park accident when he clashed with the Force India of Nico Hulkenberg and found himself back in ninth after the opening lap.

Alonso says fifth a fillip for Ferrari

Fernando Alonso says Ferrari still have plenty of work to do even after a fifth-place finish in Sunday’s Australian Grand Prix went some way to bolster the Italian squad after a troubled start to the season.

Alonso was despondent after qualifying on Saturday at Albert Park, where he finished in 12th place after a spin into the Turn 1 gravel trap.
The two-time world champion made his customary brilliant race start and was eighth by the end of lap one, then fought with the Mercedes of Nico

Button's bedroom brings out the best

A masterful performance from Jenson Button brought the British driver his third Melbourne victory as McLaren Mercedes threw down the gauntlet to Red Bull Renault in a superb Formula 1 Qantas Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park.

Button beat pole-sitter and team-mate Lewis Hamilton for the first-lap lead, kept cool when the Safety Car intervened just past the halfway stage of the 58-lap race and strung together a stunning sequence of fastest laps to hold off a fast-finishing Sebastian Vettel and claim his 13th career victory.
