Formula One is back! its back for another cracking season beginning, as usual, at the Australian Grand Prix. The beginning of the season didn’t go well, as we were greeted with a terrible news of the passing away of long time F1 Race Director, Charlie Whiting. While F1 drivers paid their condolences, the first press conference went underway with a thrilling lineup of Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, Daniel Ricciardo, Sebastian Vettel and the comeback king Robert Kubica.

There were multiple take backs from the press conference. But the one we particularly enjoyed was a sweet little gesture by Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel.

When given a chance Ricciardo spoke about Robert, his comeback, his struggle and how much of a big thing it is.
And rightfully so, Kubica deserves every bit of appreciation that comes his way. Following Ricciardo’s words, Vettel took the lead in applauding Kubica and whole room joined in.
It was very touching and a testimony of how much respected Kubica is throughout the grid. We hope his comeback isn’t overshadowed by Williams’ struggles as what seems right now.
