See below for my pick of the best drivers in the Australian Grand Prix.
Review each driver’s race weekend in detail below and vote for who you thought was the most impressive driver.
For your consideration
Here are some of the drivers who impressed me during the Australian Grand Prix weekend:
Sebastian Vettel – He may have the best car underneath him, but look at the gap to his team mate and you know he’s making the most of it.
Lewis Hamilton – Split the fastest cars on the track in qualifying and nursed his injured MP4-26 to the flag.
Vitaly Petrov – Quick in qualifying, opportunistic at the start, and looked after his tyres for a fully deserved podium finish.
Fernando Alonso – Fought back effectively with some good passes after being crowded out at the start.
Sergio Perez – A mature drive and a great debut performance – no-one else managed just one pit stop.
