Sauber took home a healthy ten points from the season-opening Australian GP, but it was rookie Sergio Perez who stole the show.

35 laps on used soft tyres is amazing - he even had the speed to unlap himself when Vettel's tyres started going off. This guy is a star in the making.

Dream start. I was impressed, so much for people saying he was nothing more than a bag of money...

That's the issue for the budget deprived drivers now compared to the past. People like Perez bring money and they're good, that's make it difficult to tackle..

Buen hecho hombre !

But the road ahead is still long.

Enjoying watching Sergio racing his first F1 race.
Super Drive and Super result.
Very Impressive.
Now people saying he was in F1 just because Money should feel sorry and stupid.
Viva Mexico

The rookies of this year are impressive!Perez,di Resta and I am sure that Maldonado will give us something to cheer very soon.Maybe Ambrossio is not such good.I am sorry for HRT.They needed this race to test some more.Hope that next race they will participate.But I don't believe soo.I hope that at least Liuzzi manages to get inside the 107% qualifying rules.

News just out: both saubers dq'd from the Australian GP for some rear wing infringement,

O JUST COME ON! Thanks to the BLOODY FIA for killing the first feelgood story of the year. F***ING DAMMIT! SO sorry for Peter and the boys. They had really deserved this.

Holmatro Safety Team - the rules are the rules. The bodywork was illegal. do you expect the FIA to turn a blind eye because it is a "feel good story"? Sucks I know, but that's just the way things go.

@andrew: Of course you're right. Got a little carried away by frustration.

I just like a good old underdog story, and that was too good a fairytale to last long, really sucks, mate! Still - they proved that they have the speed and hopefully will do evenly good with a LEGAL car. I also apologize to the FIA in my earlier outburst, they're just doing their job.

Those stewards are either blind or just plain stupid.
How it is they did not realized the Sauber cars did not comply with the regulations during friday and saturday technical inspections, and they did so only after the race? Or did somebody at Sauber changed the rear wings on both cars before the race started?
