Sunday's season-opening Australian Grand Prix showed that Formula One has lost none of its ability to shoot itself in the foot – and to detect silver linings in the darkest of clouds.Sunday's outcome may have convinced some that the season was already a two-horse race, depending on Nico Rosberg taking the fight to double world champion teammate Lewis Hamilton, but there were glimmers to suggest Mercedes might not have it all their own way.McLaren, who have not won a race since 2012, would have gone away from last year's opener with their hopes up after taking second and third places.Hamilton, Sunday's winner, failed to score a point in Melbourne in 2014 but went on to take his second title with 11 wins in total.
