MILESTONE
A great place for the race; that's what Melbourne is. Host to the Australian Grand Prix, this is one of the most popular races on the calendar, both for its atmosphere and the challenging track made up of primarily public roads. The track at Albert Park is a street circuit and so used by everyday road traffic when F1 isn't around. Therefore, drivers are faced with minimal grip during the race weekend's opening sessions and the limited run-off areas may claim some victims before grip levels improve as rubber is put down. The support races help this but it can take until Saturday's qualifying session for the track to stabilise. The track blends a testing mix of short straights, interspersed with slow and medium speed corners. The drivers have to be very committed and precise, and their jobs are made more difficult in the race by the setting sun.

QUOTES ON ALBERT PARK

It’s one of the best Grands Prix of the year. Formula One would be much worse off if Melbourne stops hosting a Grand Prix.
