F1 On This Day…. 07/03

Posted: 07/03/2010 in Formula 1

Today in 1999 Eddie Irvine finally reached the top step of the podium when he won the Australian Grand Prix. It was the first race of the season and the McLarens of Hakkinen and Coulthard were dominant in qualifying but fragile in the race, both dropping out with mechanical problems to leave Eddie a clear path to victory with his teammate Michael Schumacher coming home eight after problems at the start.
