Very nice to have F1 back!
I'd say it's due to the blown diffuser being removed from these cars. This is an insightful article : http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2012/0...-bulls-suffer/

Mercedes themselves have said that their "F-duct" type system is not as effective in Melbourne, and will have a bigger effect at circuits like China and Malaysia - a daunting prospect.
