Melbourne, Australia - The Australian Grand Prix started with Lewis Hamilton on pole after dominance during practice sessions and a blistering pole position, but Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel battled hard for the win.

With no incidents during the first lap, Hamilton led the race and looked certain to win the first race of the season.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel were on his heels since the lights went out, but during strategic box sessions, the boys in red had the better plan. After Hamilton boxed for the first time, Vettel took the lead and managed to keep his place even after he too had to box.

Hulkenberg in P7 for Renault while Valterri Bottas finished in P8. Vndoorne in P9 and Carlos Sainz in P10.
