After the race in Bahrain there was a huge amount of negative comment about Formula 1. The race had been a bore; the new rules were wrong; everything needed to be changed; the baby had to be thrown out with the bath water. The F1 team principals started talking about success ballast, grooved slicks and God knows what to try to create differentiation between the cars.
And then the Australian GP came along and F1 produced a brilliant race.
If ever there was an illustration of why F1 needs not to panic, here it was. Perhaps there will be other dull races in the year ahead, and there is no doubt that there are issues that need to be addressed in relation to the design of the cars, but the sport does not need revolutionary change.
F1 is very definitely not broken.
