There have been a few changes to the grid ahead of the Australian Grand Prix, with Timo Glock falling ten places and Adrian Sutil opting to start from the pits. Who will be in the lead going into the first corner? Here are my thoughts on the grid:
Lewis Hamilton and Robert Kubica share the front row of the grid for tomorrow’s Australian Grand Prix. The pair battled at Magny-Cours and clashed at Fuji last year – but they’ve been racing each other since they first met in karts nine years ago.
The biggest surprise of qualifying for me was how quick the BMWs are. Robert Kubica was just 0.155s off Lewis Hamilton’s pole position time and Nick Heidfeld back him up in fifth with a 1’27.236. During the discussion of qualifying here last night one or two people raised the possibility that the two drivers are […]
Lewis Hamilton will start the first race of 2008 from pole position after an exciting qualifying session in Melbourne. Robert Kubica will join him on the front row and the Ferraris will start 4th and 16th after Kimi Raikkonen ran into trouble in the first part of the session.

Honda reckon they’re as quick as any one bar Ferrari and McLaren, now they have their new aerodynamic upgrade. And BMW said […]
I’ve just been interviewed by New Zealand radio station BSport about my predictions for the Australian Grand Prix. It’s the first time I’ve ever been interviewed live and I think it went OK… You can listen to the interview in full here: Keith on BSport 20080314.mp3 (6.61Mb)
Here are my notes on the first two Australian Grand Prix free practices. Kimi Raikkonen was fastest in the first and Lewis Hamilton quickest in the second, ahead of home hero Mark Webber..
It’s time for the second practice session from Melbourne and happily ITV’s video stream seems to work better this time. Are you following the second practice session as well? Leave your comments below.
The 2002 Australian Grand Prix began with an enormous crash that wiped out eight cars. See video below of how one spectator saw Ralf Schumacher’s dramatic flight after he hit Rubens Barrichello’s Ferrari.
ITV will show free practice, qualifying and races live on the internet this year. I have criticised ITV for various shortcomings in their production in the past but this is definitely a step forward and I applaud them for it.
