Australia 2012 - Driver standings - Jenson Button wins the first GP and leads the championship

Published by Christine

Jenson Button kicks off his 2012 championship campaign with the full 25 points after securing victory in the Australian Grand Prix. Sebastian Vettel managed to pull back a great points haul after a disappointing qualifying position, whilst Lewis Hamilton looked mildly dissatisfied with his third place. Further back, Sergio Pérez gets some early points on the board after a one-stop strategy worked out well, and Daniel Ricciardo picks up his first F1 points.
