Australia 2012 - Team standings // McLaren take an early lead in the 2012 championship

Published by Christine

McLaren's double podium finish sets them up nicely in the standings with a ten point buffer to Red Bull. The pair of them have quite an advantage over next place Sauber, whilst Ferrari are sitting down in fourth after an uncomfortable one-car finish. Lotus, Toro Rosso and Force India all get their name on the board, whilst the surprising non-points finish is Mercedes. Williams will be disappointed to have not scored, with Pastor Maldonado's last lap crash knocking him out of a strong position.
