Australia was a fantastic race, and at the end just about every driver had a story to tell. Perhaps the man with the least eventful afternoon was race winner Lewis Hamilton, but behind the McLaren driver there was much to talk about, not least the way the safety cars shook things up. Here, then, are a few snapshots from an afternoon of high drama.
Williams driver Kazuki Nakajima may well have set some kind of record by twice losing his front wing and yet still finishing in the points - although I seem to remember Jacques Villeneuve in his BMW Sauber days had something of a penchant for losing bits from the front of his car on a regular basis.
Nakajima should be thankful that he was not driving for Super Aguri, for he would not have been able to finish the race. Thanks to the rush to get the cars to Melbourne, the team had just one spare nose for Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson's use on race day.
