Shane van Gisbergen is one-up on his new teammate Jamie Whincup this week, stealing the lead from the pole sitter in the first race at Albert Park.
Whincup got a good jump from pole position after the 2x2 rolling start and sailed away from the field.
Van Gisbergen made a big move early, rounding up a number of cars in one corner to take second place, before an early safety car bunched the field.
The quick Kiwi was strong on the restart and was ultimately able to sneak in front of Whincup, the six-time champ making a rare mistake and locking up under pressure to see his teammate roll past at turn 13.
