(PRWEB UK) 15 March 2013
A beautifully sunny Albert Park in Melbourne saw the start of practice for the Formula 1 racing season today. The Australian Grand Prix is the first event of a highly anticipated season with fans eager to see if Red Bull will maintain their dominance, or whether Ferrari or Mclaren can catch their rivals. The Red Bull of Sebastian Vettel topped the timing sheets at the end of practice, continuing the remarkable form that has saw him become back to back world champion last season. Vettel’s team mate Australian Mark Webber was hot on his tail, only two tenths of a second behind the German. The Lotus-Renault team also showed good pace, as did Lewis Hamilton in his maiden drive for new team Mercedes having made the switch from Mclaren in the summer.
