The Australian Grand Prix was the first chance to see the state of play in Formula 1 in 2017, with Mercedes and Ferrari emerging in a close fight after qualifying. Lewis Hamilton was on pole, but Sebastian Vettel was close. In the race itself, these were the men to beat with Lewis leading the way and then Sebastian getting ahead when the Mercedes pitted. Lewis encountered traffic and when Vettel pitted, he was ahead and there was nothing Hamilton could do. Valtteri Bottas shadowed them home with a lacklustre Kimi Raikkonen fourth, waking up at the end of the race to set the fastest lap. We have a full analysis of the qualifying and the race.
