Australian Grand Prix driver ratings: Lewis Hamilton dominates, rookies impress in Formula 1 opener
(Video) F1: Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg secure Mercedes 1-2 at Australian Grand Prix
Following the Mercedes-dominated race, Vettel took aim at Rosberg’s claim that he wanted to see more competition in races after both he and teammate Lewis Hamilton finished half a minute ahead of the rest of the field.
Be honest! Do you really hope so? Seriously? You finished 30 seconds ahead of us and you hope it’s going to be closer? So you hope you slow down? Is that what you’re saying?” Vettel is quoted as saying by The Guardian.
The Ferrari driver said Mercedes should open their garage before the Malaysian Grand Prix.
Rosberg obliged and sent an official invite via Twitter.
Dear Seb, this is the official invitation to join our debrief Friday 16.00 at Sepang. See you there, don’t forget your notebook!

It remains to be seen if Vettel does take up Rosberg’s invite, with the two reportedly sharing a frosty relationship.
