MELBOURNE, March 20 (Xinhua) -- The Formula 1 (F1) Grand Prix season kicked off in the best possible fashion on Sunday, with racegoers in Melbourne treated to sublime driving, even better weather and a tumultuous but enthralling first race of the year.

It ended with Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg taking the checkered flag and teammate Lewis Hamilton fighting off Ferrari's dogged Sebastian Vettel for the second place on the podium.

Here are five things we learnt from the first race of the F1 season Cheap Chandler Catanzaro Jersey , excluding the qualifying debacle, which has already been scrapped by Formula 1.

Ferrari has been hiding something up its sleeve:

They reported very quick cars in testing, and qualified third and fourth, but the Ferrari team was mightily unlucky not to walk away with a win in Melbourne.

Both Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen had exhilarating fast starts and jumped to a one-two lead over the much-favored Mercedes cars.

As Vettel said after he finished third on the podium Cheap Kelvin Beachum Jersey , the red flag which cut away a sizable advantage over his opponents "surely didn't help".

Add to that an airbox issue for Raikkonen when he was well and truly cruising in second place and Ferrari could well have had two drivers on the podium come to the end of the race.

Ferrari will this year prove to be more of a handful to the Mercedes team which dominated the constructors' championship in 2015, and with a few more fast starts and a little more luck, they could well challenge for the title.

Mercedes could be a little complacent after dominating 2015:

Despite Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton finishing first and second respectively, they were lucky to come away with the one-two finish thanks to a number of fortuitous events throughout the race.

Ironically following on from Rosberg's comments on Saturday Cheap Darron Lee Jersey , in which he said it was important for Mercedes not to get complacent after blitzing the field last season, both Hamilton (pole) and Rosberg (second on the grid) were pounced on by a number of rivals in the very first lap.

Hamilton's lackadaisical start resulted in him slipping to sixth after the third turn, and Ferrari drivers Vettel and Raikkonen quickly opened up multiple second leads on the rest of the pack.

Hamilton was then forced to tussle with gritty Toro Rosso driver Max Verstappen, who Cheap ArDarius Stewart Jersey , aside from some poor timing and a couple of ordinary team management decisions, could easily have finished in the top four.

At one stage, Hamilton explained to his team that he couldn't catch the stroppy Verstappen, but as luck would have it Cheap Marcus Maye Jersey , the red flag and a pit mix-up for Verstappen helped the Mercedes driver navigate the issue and hunt down his podium finish.

Meanwhile, Rosberg also slipped down a place after the sluggish start, something which left him unsuccessfully chasing both Ferraris.

However thanks, in-part Cheap Jamal Adams Jersey , to the drama which unfolded mid-race, Rosberg's patience (coupled with a superior machine) was ultimately rewarded by his first-place finish.

Fernando Alonso is lucky to be alive:

McLaren-Honda driver Fernando Alonso must have felt like a.
