2016 Australian GP Post-Race Stats

What a way to start the season, qualifying was a complete joke (and luckily they have returned back to the previous format already), but the race more than made up for it, despite the slightly predictable result.

Lewis Hamilton started from pole, but by turn two Vettel was leading and Hamilton down in sixth place. The most amazing part of lap one? Pascal Wehrlein and Manor, he started in 21st place and ended the lap in 14th, not bad for his first racing lap in an F1 car.

Haas had a spectacular debut, a pretty mediocre qualifying with 19th and 20th, but Grosjean stormed through to finish sixth, without actually having a proper pitstop. In fact neither Haas had a pit stop, Gutierrez had an accident with Alonso before he stopped for tyres, and the red flag caused by that gave Grosjean the perfect time to change tyres and run to the end of the race.

Rosberg won the race with Hamilton second and Vettel third, the same top three as nine races last year. Daniel Ricciardo took the fastest lap of the race, and Romain Grosjean gained the most positions, finishing 13 places higher than his grid position.


Not much to really say about this graph yet, one race has gone so it is just race positions.


Bit more to look at with the Constructors’ graph, Haas have only had a single race but are fifth overall so far. Renault on their return to F1 were just outside of the points and currently eighth.
