The 2014 season of Formula 1 racing is officially on, and it’ll be a season packed with thrills, surprises, and tail-happy power slides if the Australian GP qualifying results are anything at all to go by. So, be warned that spoilers abound below, and that you might be surprised to see who’s going to be starting tomorrow’s Australian GP from the front row.
|Driver No.||Driver||Team||Grid Pos.|
|3||Daniel Ricciardo||Red Bull Racing-Renault||2|
|27||Nico Hulkenberg||Force India-Mercedes||7|
|1||Sebastian Vettel||Red Bull Racing-Renault||12|
|11||Sergio Perez||Force India-Mercedes||16|
Are you as surprised as I was to see Vettel’s Red Bull Renault down in the 6th row while his (apparently under-rated) teammate fought the heavily favored Mercedes team for pole? In the rain? What about the Kimi v. Fernando duel everyone was talking about before the season kicked off- are you thinking now that the Scuderia should have just held on to Massa?
Let us know what you think of these Australian GP qualifying results- and how they matched up to your predictions!- in the comments, below.
