$RACE

FLASH: Ferrari stood out as quickest in FP3 Saturday, stayed a bit off the pace in the Qualifying round.

4X world champion Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, racing for a 3rd successive win at Albert Park, was separated from his new team mate Charles Leclerc by 4th placed Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing on the Grid Sunday

It felt like ‘deja vu’ for Seb, having trailed MercedesAMG by nearly 7/10ths sec in qualifying at last year’s race.

Lewis Hamilton will start in Pole position at the 2019 Australian F1 Grand Prix after Topping qualifying Saturday at Albert Park in Melbourne,

The MercedesAMG driver set a new track record of 1.20.486 secs, he will start ahead of team-mate Valtteri Bottas and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel.

Earlier, Mr. Hamilton had gone quickest in the final FP3 session, Friday.

Despite his record of securing pole 6X’s at Albert Park, Mr. Hamilton has only won there 2X, so he is keen to improve in that regard and kick off the new season with a win.

Mr. Vettel is the 2X defending champion in Melbourne and has won 3X there overall, though, so he will push Messers Hamilton and Bottas all the way to win the season opener again Sunday.
