AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX

Melbourne has been the traditional season curtain raiser all but two times since the city's Albert Park track first hosted the Australian Grand Prix way back in 1996. A temporary circuit in a parkland setting in the heart of the city, the track provides a tough test for new-season cars and F1 drivers alike, no matter how experienced they are. Dusty and dirty at the start of the race weekend, with few substantial run-off areas and walls and fences close at hand, Albert Park always guarantees thrills and spills. Since 2009 the challenge has been increased by the adoption of a 5pm start time, meaning that the race often begins in bright sunshine and ends in twilight.

WELCOME TO MELBOURNE

Any grand prix hosted within a city is a great race... and this is not just any city. Melbourne loves its sport (it's obsessed with sport) and embraces the race with huge enthusiasm. It also knows how to party. Down the road on the seafront is the cool and edgy St Kilda district, which has any number of great bars and clubs where F1 fans mingle with the city's trendsetters. A short tram or cab ride from the track brings you to the compact and vibrant city centre. Melbourne rates itself as the foodie capital of Australia and you're never more than a stone's throw from a great restaurant. In short, with the track bang in the heart of a brilliant, buzzing city there's no finer place to kick start the season. Be warned though, Australia's booming economy means living the high life in Melbourne has become a wallet-crunching experience.
