Charles Leclerc’s win firmly puts Ferrari as the team to beat, Red Bull’s reliability is a MAJOR cause for concern – and has Sebastian Vettel lost his fuel for the fight at struggling Aston Martin? SIX THINGS WE LEARNED from the Australian Grand Prix

The last time Formula One came to Melbourne, the season-opening Grand Prix in 2020 was abandoned in a spate of panic as the pandemic took hold across the world. Indeed, he registered an extra point with his final lap of the race. While team-mate Carlos Sainz’s weekend was mis-happed due to a combination of qualifying misfortune and race inaccuracy, Leclerc looked strikingly composed. There’s 20 races to go, but already Leclerc has a very healthy lead. It’s a rule which has not been enforced before this weekend, at all. With a four-time world champion back in their ranks after a Covid-enforced absence from the opening two Grands Prix, would this be the weekend Aston Martin joined the 2022 points party?. Yet Aston – a regular in midfield last year – are now the only team who have not scored a point this time round.
