Valtteri Bottas dominated the Australian Grand Prix for Mercedes, but teammate Lewis Hamilton couldn't live with him. It emerged after the race that Hamilton's car was damaged, costing him performance. Our technical editor Jake Boxall-Legge uses our exclusive 3D animation of the Mercedes W10 to pinpoint where the damage was to the car, and explain why such a small change visually could have such a big influence on Hamilton's speed. F1 Racing Editor Ben Anderson joins the discussion with Glenn Freeman to reflect on Mercedes' dominant start to the 2019 campaign, and the feisty side of Bottas we saw during and after the race.
