For the first time since 2020, Formula 1 heads to a new and hopefully improved Albert Park for the 2022 Australian Grand Prix.

While Formula 1 was last at Albert Park in 2020, no on-track competition ever took place.

As the global pandemic took hold, the race weekend was postponed and eventually cancelled shortly before the opening practice session, so the 2022 staging of the Australian Grand Prix will mark the first Formula 1 action here since 2019.

Mercedes are set to bring a new rear ring to Albert Park, but will it be enough to take them closer to the leading duo of Ferrari and Red Bull?

Global Tech News Daily

Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen have a win apiece in 2022, but as Sergio Perez demonstrated in Saudi Arabia, it is no given that the only Verstappen and Leclerc will be fighting for the Australian Grand Prix win.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the 2022 Australian Grand Prix.

Where does the 2022 Australian Grand Prix take place?

Albert Park has been the sole host of the Australian Grand Prix since 1996.

Located just three kilometres south of central Melbourne, for Formula 1’s visit the city is transformed with Albert Park converted into a challenging street circuit.

Albert Park is steeped in Formula 1 history having also hosted non-World Championship races in the early 1950s and, with the track regularly hosting the first race of the season in past years, has been the circuit where the likes of Sir Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso have all made their official Formula 1 debuts.

The Australian Grand Prix also represents Daniel Ricciardo’s home race and he had a grandstand re-named after him in 2016.

With Formula 1 unable to race at Albert Park in 2021, while the 2020 staging of the Australian Grand Prix was cancelled, it allowed for a major renovation of the track to take place.

The average lap time was cut by around five seconds, with the number of corners reduced from 16 to 14, while several of them were reprofiled or widened with the aim of generating more on-track action and overtaking.

Where can I watch the 2022 Australian Grand Prix?

Pay-TV broadcaster Sky Sports will show the entire race weekend on its dedicated Sky Sports F1 channel. You can also access a live stream of the coverage via Now TV.

Free-to-air broadcaster Channel 4 will show extended highlights from qualifying and the race.

Subscribers to F1’s own app can hear radio commentary on the race proper from the BBC and access live data throughout every session.

PlanetF1 will carry live timing and expert commentary on every session of the race weekend, from FP1 on Friday morning to the race on Sunday afternoon.

United States: ESPN

What are the odds for the 2022 Australian Grand Prix?

Latest bookmaker information shows that Max Verstappen, following his victory in Saudi Arabia, is the favourite to go back-to-back and take to the top step of the podium at the Australian Grand Prix.

Plus, considering that Sergio Perez took pole and comfortably led in Saudi Arabia before being stung by the Safety Car, his odds for victory at Albert Park look very enticing.

Here are the latest selected prices from Planet Sport Bet:

6/5 Max Verstappen (Red Bull)

7/4 Charles Leclerc (Ferrari)

11/2 Carlos Sainz (Ferrari)

12/1 Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes)

12/1 Sergio Perez (Red Bull)

(Last updated Monday April 4)

Which drivers have won the Australian Grand Prix?

The Australian Grand Prix has been a happy hunting ground for Ferrari over the years, the Scuderia winning 12 times which is the joint-most with McLaren.

Albert Park has often been kind to the Scuderia in providing them with the launchpad for title success, especially at the height of Michael Schumacher’s domination in Ferrari red in the early 2000s.

Schumacher is a four-time winner at Albert Park, while his brother, Ralf, provided one of the most dramatic starts ever witnessed in Formula 1 at the iconic street circuit when his Williams BMW went flying high into the air with a further seven cars caught up in the melee.

Of the current drivers, Sebastian Vettel comes closest to Michael Schumacher’s winning record at Albert Park, Vettel having won the Australian Grand Prix in 2011, 2017 and 2018.

The previous 10 winners of the Australian Grand Prix are:

2019 – Valtteri Bottas, Mercedes

2018 – Sebastian Vettel, Ferrari

2017 – Sebastian Vettel, Ferrari

2016 – Nico Rosberg, Mercedes

2015 – Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes

2014 – Nico Rosberg, Mercedes

2013 – Kimi Raikkonen, Lotus

2012 – Jenson Button, McLaren

2011 – Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull

2010 – Jenson Button, McLaren

Directions to the 2022 Australian Grand Prix

The best and most effective way to travel to and from the circuit is by tram, which is free to use for all Australian Grand Prix ticket holders. Use the Light Rail GP Express to get to Gates 1 and 2, Clarendon Street GP Express to get to Gates 3 and the easiest way to reach Gates 5, 8, 9 and 10 is via the St Kilda Road trams.

Some local bus services that will get you close to the circuit are available while the Skybus offers a direct route from the track to the airport which is located approximately 25km away.

For fans flying to Melbourne, make sure to get a flight to the main Melbourne airport (MEL) at Tullamarine rather than Avalon which is considerably further away.

There is no public parking available at the circuit but there are 70,000 free car parking spaces for those in cars in the city of Melbourne.

The nearest train/tram station is Flinders Street Station.
