The inaugural race of the year turned out to be closely fought and full of suspenses and surprises. The biggest one being rookie Lewis Hamilton getting a position on the podium in his debut F1 race. It turned out to be a particularly good start for the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team as Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton took 2nd and 3rd places respectively. The 1st place was bagged by Kimi Raikkonnen driving his first race for Ferrari.
