Australian Grand Prix

Everything you need to know about the Australian Grand Prix

Round 03 -  March 31st - April 2nd


The first Australian Grand Prix took place in 1996 around Albert Park in Melbourne. The first grand prix is mostly memorable due to Martin Brundle when he launched his Jordan car into the air crashing heavily in Turn 3 at the beginning of the race. In 2022 the track went under a layout change, the chicane in sector 2 is gone and is now just one long back straight before the fast left and right corners going into sector 3. Corners around the track have also widen to make overtaking better.
