Brawn GP locked out the front row, led every lap and finished one-two in Melbourne. Can anyone stop them in Sepang? It’s a totally different circuit in a punishing climate – and we just might in for some rain as well.
After Robert Kubica and Sebastian Vettel’s controversial crash in the dying stages of the Australian Grand Prix, Mario Theissen claimed Robert Kubica would have won had he got past Vettel cleanly and been able to chase after leader Jenson Button.

A big talking point on the live blogs during the Australian Grand Prix weekend was how BBC did with their F1 coverage. I thought they did a great job – but reading around some other sites I’ve noticed a few complaints. What did you think of the BBC’s return as an F1 broadcaster?

A new F1 team wins on its debut, an all-Mercedes podium, and rotten luck for a driver on his 200th start. Here’s a round-up of the stats and facts from the Australian Grand Prix.
The late afternoon start for this year’s Australian Grand Prix gave a lovely colour to photographs from the race.

Robert Kubica and Sebastian Vettel clashed in dramatic fashion in the dying stages of the Australian Grand Prix. Kubica was catching Vettel and leader Jenson Button at the time and looked set to mount an improbable bid for victory – instead his race and Vettel’s ended in the barriers.
Ferrari got their 2009 season off to a terrible start in Melbourne. Felipe Massa retired late in the race and Kimi Raikkonen lost a points finish after spinning into the barriers.
