The Australian GP is very rarely representative of the cars, or the season to come.
The track is a pretty odd one. It lacks the guarantee of certainties – there are not the long straight, the sweeping corners, the specific tight sections that come up in almost every other F1 track.
It’s all ‘bitty’ and less rhythmic that other circuits.
Hamilton’s mistake was a big one, but over the course of a season, he still has the will, and obviously the skill, to out-qualify Rosberg and therefore out-class him on a normal F1 circuit.
