Australian GP: Valtteri Bottas Upsets Lewis Hamiton’s Season Opener

Share This:

Valtteri Bottas dominated the season-opening Australian Grand Prix after overtaking world champion team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

The Finn took the lead at the start from Hamilton, who made a slow getaway from pole position, and even took the new bonus point for the fastest lap.

Hamilton was left far behind, and had to concentrate on holding off Red Bull’s Max Verstappen for second place.

Verstappen passed Sebastian Vettel for third on a sobering day for Ferrari.

“Why are we so slow?” Vettel asked his team at two-thirds distance. “We don’t know at the moment,” came the reply. It was an exchange that summed up Ferrari’s entire weekend.
