Rosberg took advantage to win after a huge crash for McLaren’s Fernando Alonso

Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg won a dramatic Australian Grand Prix, after a huge crash for McLaren’s Fernando Alonso.

A bad start dropped Lewis Hamilton from pole to sixth but he fought to second.

Rosberg took advantage when the race was stopped following Alonso’s high-speed barrel-roll to switch strategy and overhaul early leader Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel.

Vettel’s strategy gamble on super-soft tyres mid-race failed and he took third ahead of Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo.

Rosberg beats Hamilton and a 'bonkers' crash. Listen to the Australian Grand Prix review:
