F1 On This Day….

Posted: 03/03/2010 in Formula 1

The 2002 season kicked off on this day with the first race in Melbourne, Australia. Michael Schumacher won in his Ferrari but the real hero was Mark Webber, the Australian driver making his F1 debut for the Minardi team which was then owned by Australian Paul Stoddart. Webber finished fifth for the minnows earning him two points and a fantastic reaction from his boss and home crowd.
