HAMILTON - 2ND, VETTEL - 1ST AND PETROV - 3RD
Starting the season a little late due to the turmoil in Bahrain it looked like a remix from last season. Sebastian Vettel, last year's champion, jumped out in front and stayed there. Lewis Hamilton, pulled into second, so it looked like all the usual suspects. Wait a minute! Who is that in third, with his first podium finish, Vitaly Petrov from Russia driving for Renualt. And you should have seen the rookie from Mexico, Sergio Perez, do his stuff. Driving for independent team Sauber, he and his teammate came in 7th and 8th. Only to be disqualified for technical reasons. To be appealed and I hope they win.
