2012 Australian Grand Prix in pictures

The 2012 F1 season got off to an exciting start in Melbourne for the Australian Grand Prix.

While Jenson Button won in style for McLaren there was a lot of action behind him in a busy midfield.

The rain that greeted the teams on Friday was a distance memory and the late afternoon sun at Albert Park in Melbourne provided the perfect backdrop for the opening race of the year – as this collection of pictures shows.

    I do love the Mercedes livery and general image but the overalls that the front and rear jack were wearing are awful!

    I’m sure Petronas appreciate it though.

    @keithcollantine
    I think you will find that the picture of the Caterham going sideways is Kovalainen and not Petrov.

    Any pictures from the driver’s photo shoot with everyone together? Did they click one with the 6 world champions together?

    Awesome pictures as usual. It would be a shame if Melbourne ever becomes a night race

    I love how forced Hamilton’s smile looks in the McLaren group picture
