A new season has started down under in Melbourne, and already you get an echoing of the multi-faceted and multi-talented field that took the 2012 campaign into a million different directions.

The weather made it all the more interesting, with a rare occurrence of qualifying being completed on race Sunday, a few hours before the main spectacle unfolded.

Some drivers struggled. Mark Webber did his usual trick of starting poorly, and thus finding himself unable to make anything of his race. Sergio Perez also looked forlorn and out of his depth at his new McLaren team.

Here are my top four drivers of the day.
