Seven hours after the race
Valtteri Bottas drove a brilliant race in Melbourne to win a dominant victory and kick off his World Championshp in the best possible way.
No-one could touch the flying Finn, who came home 20 seconds clear of Lewis Hamilton, 22 secs clear of Max Verstappen's Red Bull-Honda and almost a minute ahead of the fastest Ferrari. It was not at all what was expected after the winter testing. The fight further back was intense and it was remarkable to see eight of the 10 teams scoring points.
