Australian Grand Prix
15 - 17 March 2019
Set against the backdrop of Melbourne, the opening race of the 2019 Formula One season will once again take place at Melbourne’s iconic Albert Park Circuit.
Easily the most popular motorsport event on the Australian calendar, the 2019 Formula One Australian Grand Prix promises to get the season off to a roaring start.
Every year, drivers, teams, media and scores of excited fans descend on Albert Park to see who is in top form. The circuit itself is a unique motor racing destination and features an atmosphere and excitement unlike any other. Following the roads around Albert Park Lake, the action-packed track may not have an abundance of long straights, but the circuit's mix of slow to medium speed corners, interlinked with short straights provide a stern test of an engine’s performance.
Synonymous with glamour, cutting-edge technology and precision teamwork, nothing compares to the adrenalin-charged action of Formula One racing. If you are already revving to get your hands on Australian Grand Prix tickets for next year, register your interest today.
Frequent tram services for F1 fans are free and are the easiest way to get to the Albert Park circuit from the city. Be prepared for crowded public transport when you are leaving the circuit, particularly on race day.
