Australia 2010: Race Result

Sebastian Vettel has taken his second consecutive pole position from the opening two rounds of the 2010 Formula One World Championship, and the young German will be hoping for better reliability than he had in Bahrain a fortnight ago. Team mate and local hero Mark Webber lines up alongside and the duo will want to claw back the points they lost to Ferrari after their one-two finish at Sakhir. The Ferraris aren’t too far behind though, and Jenson Button will be wanting to get in the mix to score some points.

Of note, Bridgestone have supplied the teams with hard and soft tyres for the race, and Rubens Barrichello has a slightly different helmet in Melbourne, predominantly white with a lighter blue top. Furthermore, the weather could play a role with dark clouds shadowing the circuit and causing lower track temperatures.

With 13 minutes to go, rain is starting to fall on the circuit. It is light and intermittent, and if it remains like this the cars will probably start on dry tyres. But, if the rain continues they move towards intermediate tyres.

Jarno Trulli has left the grid and his Lotus is in pieces with a suspected hydraulic issues.
