    G'day! I'm Australian
    Albert Park racing brought a colourful day all around as Giancarlo Fisichella (Renault) finished the Melbourne Australian Formula One Grand Prix first, followed by Reubens Barrichello (Ferrari) and Fernando Alonso (Renault), finished third.

    It was a great result for Mark Webber for the new team of BMW Williams with a satisfactory finish of fifth overall. ;) It was a disappointing result for the World Champion Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher who did not finish in the Ferrari F1 after being hit on a curve and spinning out. :(

    This makes it a one-three finish for Renault who are 16 points clear on top of the driver teams table. :eek:

    It was a great result all round for the debutants, such as Indian's Karthikeyan, a debut driver for Jordan's new racing team. :)

    Also, a new team has been announced; the new Red Bull Racing team, replacing Jaguar racing. :eek:

    This is just some news come through on the Melbourne Grand Prix in Australia.

    Davo. :)

    Hey Iceguy,

    Zipped by this thread a couple of times before I realised that "Australian Formula One" was not an alcoholic beverage served @ Big Buck's and Blackspear's local Pub.

    It's refreshing to see an Italian driver in a French auto win an Australian race. Boy......talk about a mixed marriage!

    Drive on, big ed

    Well, there is actually an alcoholic beverage which sponsors the Australian F1 and that's Fosters.
