Rosberg steers Merce100des to F1 victory

DAY OF THE UNDERDOGS:While senior drivers had a difficult race yesterday, Formula One’s young guns grabbed the opportunity to shine on the podium

Reuters, MELBOURNE, Australia

Russian rookie Daniil Kvyat finished 10th on his debut for Toro Rosso, becoming at 19 years old the sport’s youngest points scorer ever.

Lotus’s insipid race weekend finished with both Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado unable to complete the race due to reliability problems.

The race stumbled at the start, with Marussia driver Max Chilton stalling on the grid before the pre-start installation lap, and his teammate Jules Bianchi then repeating the mishap.

Bianchi, along with both Caterhams, was unable to finish.
