And today we start the F1 article series. With the 2012 F1 season starting with a bang, it looks that we should be prepared to see some surprises.Button stole the show with a fantastic race in Australia and his team mate coming 3rd. Last year’s Champ – Sebastian Vettel came 2nd who was expecting to have the trophy in the first race of the season.
Malaysia, however was a track that changed fortunes of many drivers and will be the most remembered race of the year. Here came rain and with it brought unluckiness as Vettel wasn’t able to make points in the race leaving him 17 points of the leader. The winner Fernando Alonso did some spectacular and accurate driving, steering him with a clear win. The surprise element was Sergio Perez from Sauber – Ferrari who manged to come 2nd and pip many good drivers such as Hamilton (3rd), Vettel, Kimi, Senna and Webber.
The question here arises is that who can hold on the trophy at the end of the year. Will it be Hamilton who will try to defend his title or will it be Alonso. It might be Hamilton also but Massa, Webber, Perez and Button are also not behind. Will Kimi show his old tricks or will Michael drive to impress Whatever will happen, its going to be hot driving this year.
The Points currently stand as:
|4||Mark Webber||Australian||Red Bull Racing-Renault||24|
|6||Sebastian Vettel||German||Red Bull Racing-Renault||18|
|10||Paul di Resta||British||Force India-Mercedes||7|
