Jensen Button and Rubens Barichello have come in 1st and 2nd in the starting line-up of the Australian Grand Prix tomorrow. The new team showed some impressive test times and has officially been able to put records to paper.
Their engine supplier Team McLaren-Mercedes’s driver, Lewis Hamilton, will be starting at the back of the grid due to a gearbox penalty suffered and were one of the last until the Toyota team were penalized for wing infringement.
It has been reported that there was too much flexibility in the new smaller wing introduced into F1 this season. Where a normal wing should remain ‘rigidly secure’ Toyota’s were highly flexible, Toyota engineers didn’t contest the decision which will mean that they have bumped Lewis up the grid.
