About the Australian Grand Prix

After a two-year absence due to the coronavirus, Formula One returns to Australia. The race that until recently marked the season opener will be the third on the calendar in 2022. The race in Melbourne promises to be spectacular, as for the first time in 25 years, the layout of the circuit has been significantly altered.

The 2022 Australian Grand Prix

Thousands of enthusiastic fans cheering on not only their Daniel Ricciardo but mostly the rest of the grid. The Albert Park Street Circuit (the track is located in the park and is only used for a number of racing events) took over from the Adelaide Street Circuit in 1996 and due to the cancellations of the race in 2020 and 2021, this will be the 25th edition. That tally will continue to 27 in any case, as the circuit's contract doesn't expire until after the 2024 race.

The many bends and the character of a semi-street circuit, make overtaking a real challenge in Daniel Ricciardo's home race. This will be a real test for the new rules and regulations. 

What does the race weekend of the Australian Grand Prix look like?

On the 8th April the first practice sessions of the race weekend are scheduled. Since 2021 these will be one-hour practice sessions. Qualifying will be held on 9 April, prior to the race for the 2022 Australian Grand Prix itself on Sunday 10 April.

What time does the Australian Grand Prix start?

As in previous years, the Australian Grand Prix can be followed live on GPblog.com from half an hour before the start of the race. The start time of the Australian Grand Prix is 06:00 UK time and the race can also be followed live from that time on your local TV option.
