Australia 2013 - Rate the race // Cast your vote for driver of the day, and score the racing action in Melbourne

Published by Christine

The first race of the year kicked off with plenty of drama, squeezing qualifying and the Grand Prix itself on the same day. Once the lights went out and the racing began, we had plenty of changes for the lead, as well as some surprising faces near the front. How do you rate the action we saw at Albert Park today?

Getting into the more specific details of the racing action, Pirelli had a clear goal in mind when they revamped the tyres for this year, but how did it work out come race day? And Hamilton's move to Mercedes has been dominating the news all winter, and now we're finally starting to see the proof of the pudding.

Finally, pick your driver of the day from the race winner in a certain loveable Finn, a feisty Spaniard hustling for early points, or one of the rookies making a name for himself as the season begins.

Do share your thoughts in the comments, who you have voted for and why. Or remain anonymous and revel in the fun of the swingometers.
