First practice in Australia certainly had plenty of talking points. It was three time world champion Lewis Hamilton who set the pace, finishing fastest in both sessions. It was a case of two differing sessions from Ferrari, as they were beaten by Red Bull in the first test, before Vettel finished just behind Hamilton in the second. There was a number of incidents, with Palmer ditching his car into the wall at turn 16, while Verstappen had a trip into the gravel. The midfield battle looks interesting, with lots of cars performing differently throughout the day. On to FP3 and qualifying!
