Valtteri Bottas passed Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton at the start and won the 2019 Melbourne Grand Prix in front of Lewis and Verstappen in the Red Bull Honda who passed Vettel in the Ferrari. Vettel and teammate Leclerc finished after a disappointing race 4th and 5th just in front of Magnussen in his Hass followed by Hülkenberg (Renault), Räikkönen (Alfa Romeo),Stroll (Racing Point) and Kwjat (Toro Rosso). Bottas got one extra point for the fastest lap. We hope to see better racing in Bahrain at the next event. It was very sad to hear of the passing of long term friend and official F1 starter Charlie Whiting on Thursday of the race week - RIP Charlie and thank you very much for all you have done for Formula 1 and your nice family.
