GP Australia 2017, the Ferrari that made you dream
GP Australia 2017: Sebastian Vettel in his Ferrari won the first race of the season and made a fans dream come true.
At the start, Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes, in pole position, was able to maintain the lead with excellent speed. He was preceded by Sebastian Vettel, Valtteri Bottas and Kimi Raikkonen, who successfully defended himself from Max Verstappen’s attack.
On the seventeenth lap, Hamilton changed tires, switching to Soft. After a very fast first lap, Hamilton finds himself in front of Max Verstappen at a very slow racing pace, and this punishes the English player.
