Key Australian GP trend supports Ferrari title hunt


Ferrari’s 1-2 finish at the Australian Grand Prix marked the first time the Italian squad took the top two positions in Melbourne since 2004.

Carlos Sainz crossed the line ahead of teammate Charles Leclerc while McLaren’s Lando Norris scored third for McLaren.

Ferrari’s victory ended Red Bull and Max Verstappen’s streak of nine in a row after the Dutchman retired with a brake issue, denying the Dutchman a chance to match his record of 10 consecutive wins.

Although Red Bull is still the favourite for this year’s championships, a historical statistic has backed up a potential Ferrari title fight.

Albert Park has hosted the Australian GP every year since 1996 and in that time, on every occasion a team has scored a 1-2 finish at the event, it has gone on to secure both championships.

Below, you can see all of the 1-2 finishes in Melbourne, all of which have led to championship success for the same team.

Will Ferrari continue the trend?
