It was announced overnight, that Australia will remain on the Formula 1 calendar until 2035. Formula 2 and Formula 3 will join the race weekend schedule for the first time from 2023, as well.
Albert Park has hosted the Australian Grand Prix since 1996 with significant improvements made over the last few years, with fan experience and paddock and pitlane facilities being planned in order to continue the circuit’s modernisation.
Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, said: “I am delighted to confirm that Melbourne and the Albert Park circuit will continue to be on the Formula 1 calendar until 2035. The race has always been a favourite for the fans, drivers and the teams and Melbourne is an incredible and vibrant international city that is a perfect match for our sport. This year we saw huge crowds and passionate fans at the Grand Prix, and we are very excited by the future in Australia as our sport continues to grow. I want to thank the Victorian Government, Daniel Andrews, Premier of Victoria and Martin Pakula, Minister for Tourism, Sport & Major Events for their tireless support for the event in Melbourne, as well as Andrew Westacott and Paul Little from the AGPC for making this already long-term partnership secure for the future. We are all looking forward to being back in Melbourne next season with all our fans.”
