Red Bull's troubled start to the 2022 Formula 1 World Championship continued in Australia, with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez having no answer to the pace of Ferrari's Charles Leclerc.

Worse followed for Verstappen, with his RB18 breaking down for the second time in three races – costing him a near-guaranteed 18 points.

Can Red Bull address their fragility quickly enough to be able to close the gap in both championships?

Looking back over an Australian Grand Prix that could prove to be a hugely decisive moment in the 2022 title race are RacingNews365.com F1 journalists Dieter Rencken, Mike Seymour and Thomas Maher.

Elsewhere, Mercedes looked a far stronger proposition as they fight to unlock the performance of the W13, while McLaren bounced back in fine style to score a double points finish on Daniel Ricciardo's home turf.

And with Sebastian Vettel enduring a disastrous return to F1 after missing the first two races of the year with COVID-19, might the four-time World Champion be tempted to exit the sport sooner rather than later?
