Valtteri Bottas won the 35th Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix today. The Finn scored his 4th Formula 1 race win in the Mercedes W10, He scored the 89th F1 victory for Mercedes. His teammate Lewis Hamilton came home 2nd and made it a very successful weekend for Mercedes by scoring their 46th 1-2 finish. 

The start of the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix was quite clean. The tight first corner didn't cause any incidents. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton was slower at the start than his team mate Valtteri Bottas who took the lead.

With the amount of rookies this 2019 season we anticipated some 1st corner collisions, but nothing happened. Daniel Ricciardo and Robert Kubica were the only drivers who got damage and had to go in to the pits to get a new front wing.

McLaren driver Carlos Sainz had to retire his car when his engine blew up in the last part of his 9th lap. Kimi Raikkonen had the honour to have the first pitstop in 2019. He switched from soft to medium tyres in lap 12. Sebastian Vettel pitted in lap 15 and also switched from soft to medium. Lewis Hamilton came in a lap later to get the same compound.

Race leader Bottas did his pitstop at the end of lap 23 to also switch to medium tyres and returned to the track as 2nd. Max Verstappen got the lead in the Red Bull but drove into the pits a lap later to get his medium tyres. Charles Leclerc was one of the last drivers to do his pitstop. He got fresh medium tyres in lap 28.

Verstappen did a great pass on Sebastian Vettel and robbed the podium from the Ferrari driver to drive on P3 in lap 31. In the same lap Ricciardo and Romain Grosjean retired their car.

The Dutchman Verstappen was driving a strong race with the Honda powered Red Bull and even could close the gap to Lewis Hamilton on his fresh tyres. Hamilton could keep the gap above 1 sec. to not give Verstappen a DRS.

Lance Stroll also drove a good GP in the Racing Point RP19 and was holding on to P9. The Canadian driver even was able to put pressure on Alfa Romeo driver Kimi Raikkonen for P8.

Ten lap before the end Verstappen ran wide in turn 1 and left the track and returned to the track unharmed.

Vettel had a bad pace in the Ferrari. His teammate Charles Leclerc closed his 5 sec. gap. He even got DRS but didn't manage to pass the German driver..

At the end of the race a lot of drivers tried to score the extra point for the fastest lap. Verstappen clocked the quickest lap time in lap 56. Bottas answered in lap 57 and grabbed it back.
