The Formula One season starts Sunday in Melbourne with five world champions on the starting grid - Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel.

That's the most since 1970 when Jack Brabham, Denny Hulme, John Surtees, Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart lined up together.
