Opening season for Formula One got off to an exciting start in Melbourne, Australia. Two-time world champion kicked off the start of the weekend by grabbing the pole position. His teammate and closest rival, Nico Rosberg locked out the second position for a one-two Mercedes front row, for Sunday’s race. Teenage rookie, Max Verstappen was impressive on the track and made the top ten. However, the much anticipated McLaren-Honda debut was disappointing to fans and drivers, who had high expectations for the return of Honda in Formula One. Jenson Button did his best, and Fernando Alonso was still out for medical reasons.

In more drama and woes on and off the track for Manor, formally Marussia, Will Stevens and Roberto Merhi never made it onto the track for qualifying. While Sauber has been embroiled with a lawsuit over, which driver has a right to a seat, for the 2015 season? We will have additional details on the drama of both teams in the Xiro Xone F1 Report, on Sunday.
