Australian Grand Prix Odds 2012 - Button Claims Win

Formula 1 came to Australia in 1985 where it set up home in Adelaide. It remained the venue until 1997 when Melbourne took over the baton and it remains the host city to the first Formula 1 of the season to the present day. Sebastian Vettel will begin the defence of his Formula 1 World Championship in Melbourne and he is the hot favourite to claim the win once again in March.
