Williams were the fourth quickest team in Australia, while there was a double-points finish for Toro Rosso.
Former team-mates Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg fell short in Melbourne as they dropped out of qualifying in Q2 while Sauber were slowest of all.
Sergio Perez narrowly missed out on a top ten berth in Friday’s Melbourne practice while Fernando Alonso was P12 for McLaren.
Formula 1 drivers could pay a bigger price this season for any mistakes as the new era of cars are “much harder” to catch, that’s according to Esteban Ocon.
Sergio Perez says Force India want to “start well” this season while Esteban Ocon believes a good job over the winter stands the team in good stead.
