Formatting GridBox with ColumnAlignments

A formatting question:

If we let

  r1 = DisplayForm[RowBox[{"(", 1, 2, 3, ")"}]]


  r2 = DisplayForm[Overscript[RowBox[{1, 2, 3, 4, 5}], \[OverBracket]]]

and then put r1 and r2 together in

  r3 = DisplayForm[GridBox[{{r1}, {r2}}, ColumnAlignments -> Left]]

then we get something that's not very aligned at all. (Evaluating r3
shows quit a bit of whitespace prior to the open parenthesis in r2,
making the two rows in the grid look somewhat messy).

Question: is it possible to make the "1"s align exactly in r3?
(ColumnAlignments -> "1" isn't doing the trick.)
