2016 Australian Grand Prix – Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg has won the 2016 F1 Australian Grand Prix, his second victory at Albert Park.
His Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton finished second, as the team recorded it’s fifth consecutive 1-2 finish dating back to last season. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel came third, with Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Williams’ Felipe Massa rounding out the top 5.
In what was the start of the 2016 Formula 1 season, McLaren’s Fernando Alonso didn’t finish the race after a terrifying collision with Haas’ Estaban Guiterrez on lap 18.
Vettel had taken the lead and was leading as at the time of Alonso’s collision, but inspired pit stop decisions from Mercedes saw Rosberg and Hamilton push ahead.
