2014 Australian Grand Prix

The 2014 Australian Grand Prix (formally known as the 2014 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix) was a Formula One motor race that was held on 16 March 2014 in Melbourne. The race was contested over 58 laps of the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit and was the first round of the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship. It marked the début of new Formula One regulations which introduced 1.6 litre turbocharged V6 engines to the sport; the first such instance, since the 1988 Australian Grand Prix, that turbocharged engines have been used in Formula One. It was the seventy-ninth race in the combined history of the Australian Grand Prix—which dates back to the 100 Miles Road Race of 1928—and the nineteenth time the event was held at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit. The race also marked the thirtieth year that the Australian Grand Prix was run as a round of the Formula One World Championship.

The race was won by German driver Nico Rosberg in a Mercedes F1 W05. It was Rosberg's fourth Grand Prix victory and completed a rare double in the Australian Grand Prix, winning a race his father Keke had won in Adelaide in 1985, the first time the AGP was a World Championship race. This feat had previously been achieved by Stan and Alan Jones and Graham and Damon Hill. Rosberg had earlier achieved the same feat in the Monaco Grand Prix as well. Kevin Magnussen finished second in a McLaren MP4-29 on his Formula One debut, the first podium finish in a World Championship Grand Prix by a Danish driver. Third was Jenson Button in the second McLaren, who recorded his 50th Formula One podium with the result. Daniil Kvyat, aged 19, was classified in ninth, becoming the youngest points-scorer in Formula One. Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo originally finished in second place for Red Bull Racing, but was later disqualified due to illegal fuel flow throughout the race.

The race was also notable for ending Sebastian Vettel's streak of nine race wins in a row.
