Post-race Statistics of the 2014 Australian GP

Uhhh, right, definitely an eventful Australian GP. Four cars didn’t even manage five laps, Ricciardo finished an impressive second but was then disqualified after HOURS of waiting.

Pole sitter Lewis Hamilton suffered with problems right from the start, leaving Nico Rosberg to grab the lead and hold onto it for the entire race, the 100th win for Mercedes powered cars. Daniel Ricciardo originally finished second on his Red Bull debut, but due to consistently exceeding the allowed fuel flow limit he was disqualified. This meant that rookie Kevin Magnussen finished second on his debut, doing one better than Hamilton on his McLaren debut, who finished third in Australia. Button was the final man in the podium positions, his 50th podium in F1, putting McLaren at the top of the Constructors’ Championship.

Valtteri Bottas gained the most places in the race, starting 15th after a grid penalty and finishing fifth, but had he not tapped the wall early on he could have been on the podium, good signs for Williams. Seven cars retired, five from mechanical problems and two from a first corner crash. Four of the mechanical failures were in Renault powered cars and just one, Hamilton, with Mercedes power.

Jules Bianchi finished eight laps down on the leaders, the first non-classified finish in F1 since Daniel Ricciardo’s HRT at the 2011 Italian GP. Red Bull failed to score points for the first time since the 2012 Italian GP, the first time they haven’t had any points in the Constructors’ Championship since after the 2009 Australian GP.
