From a Mercedes data error, to two pit-stop mistakes and a highly impressive start from a Formula One great, there were plenty of talking points to take away from the Australian Grand Prix.

Sebastian Vettel came out on top against Lewis Hamilton, as Ferrari made the most of a Virtual Safety Car to jump the Mercedes driver, while Haas were left devastated after two unsafe releases cost them what could have potentially been a stunning opening weekend.

Fernando Alonso also benefitted from the virtual safety car, and then defended superbly, as he picked up a fifth-placed finish to kick off his Formula One season.

Here, Sport360’s Niall McCague and Tom Biggs take a look back at the opening weekend of the Formula One season.
