The waiting is finally over. The F1 season gets underway this weekend when the best drivers in the world converge at Albert Park for the 2018 Australian Grand Prix, as the city of Melbourne has played host to the race since 1996, acting as the curtain-raiser in all but two years since then, offering a real ‘back to school’ feel for all in the paddock. Like each year, there are several intriguing storylines heading into the Australian Grand Prix and the race will also be the first time that we will see the new cars in action, after the winter testing sessions.
Scuderia Ferrari have clocked the fastest lap of pre-season testing and Sebastian Vettel won the Australian GP last season and the German driver will now hope for a similar outcome next weekend.
Join us for the latest updates and results from the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit as the second practice session ahead of the 2018 Australian Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of the SF71H.
