Talent shines in Melbourne

The first race of the 2014 season, and the first Australian on an Australian podium... At least for a few hours! Ricciardo was stripped of podium. Its all about the fuel flow, but you can't take away what Dan achieved, in front of his home crowd and in his first race as a Red Bull driver. The pressure was on and he delivered.

But what Australia will be remembered for is for Kevin Magnussen's stellar performance - best rookie result since Lewis Hamilton's debut with McLren! Also the first ever Dane driver on an F1 podium! What a viking!

The other rookie of the weekend was definitely Daniil Kvyat. He went on to score points in his first ever F1 race (don't forget he comes straight from GP3), stealing one of Vettel's records on the way: the Russian is now the youngest driver to have scored a point in F1, only 19 years and 322 days old (27 days younger than the German).
