Australian Grand Prix proves to be a battle for Ferrari

Despite season-opening optimism, Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro's hard fought driving leads to being relegated to non-podium finishes.  Fernando Alonso takes 4th place and Felipe Massa finishes with a 7th finish spot.  Both drivers battled throughout the race, as the entire field struggled with the new tire choices, KERS settings and the new DRS wing functionality.  It was hard to see the difference the new DRS made in the passing ease, and it was not evident that team RBR utilized their KERS during the event. Sauber's rookie, Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi were stripped of their seventh and eighth places for technical infringement.  Now on to Malaysia in two weeks.
