Melbourne

When was the track built?

The deal to host Formula 1 in Melbourne was done in 1993, with the decision taken to create a circuit using a mixture of the existing roads around the city’s Albert Park – mainly Aughtie Drive and Lakeside Drive if you fancy driving it yourself – with a little detour through the Lakeside Stadium’s car park.

When was its first Grand Prix?

Just four months after Adelaide held its last Australian Grand Prix at the end of 1995, the Formula 1 teams were back in Australia for Melbourne's first Grand Prix at the start of 1996. That race is most often remembered for Martin Brundle’s infamous Jordan crash at Turn 3 after he launched himself off the back of Johnny Herbert’s Sauber.

What’s the circuit like?

As a temporary facility, Albert Park can be quite bumpy - though resurfacing for 2022 will no doubt improve matters - while the circuit at the start of the weekend is often slippery, rubbering in as the sessions progress. It’s also a circuit that requires a well-sorted chassis, with several spots on the track where the drivers require a reactive front end to allow them to chuck it into a corner. Melbourne is also one of the faster tracks on the calendar, with Lewis Hamilton’s 2019 pole lap set at an average of over 235km/h.

Why go?

Often found on lists of the world’s best cities, Melbourne is a blast all year round – and it only gets better when Formula 1 rolls into town. There are bars and restaurants aplenty, you’re right by the beach, while the race’s appearance at the start of Australia’s autumn means the temperatures should be peachy.

Where is the best place to watch?

If you want to get in a grandstand, opt for either the Waite stand overlooking Turn 10, or the Brabham Grandstand on the outside of Turn 2 to watch cars jostling for position through the first chicane. Alternatively, there are some nice general admission spots on the far side of the lake – go for either between Turns 8-9 or 9-10 if you fancy some F1 picnic feels.

They got 2 weeks to figure it out.

I'm sure the guys at the factory are making new driveshafts at the moment and testing them

Good news is that stuff isn't restricted so we'll see beefed up ones for Australia.

Sure . As we know the RB19 is lighter than the 2022 RB18-B.
Extremely lightweight can compromise reliability and durability.
Won't be easy for Red Bull to fix that .

As said there is no restriction on these so a few extra grams of strengthening won't make much difference seing the 19's already big advantage they got through hard work and late nights

Actually already 4 weeks , because at Bahrain they thought it was MAX's gearbox , that's why his gearbox was replaced at Jeddah.
MAX's downshifts really s@cked in Bahrain. (lag and vibrations)

I think , it won't be easy to engineer a stronger driveshaft .
The driveshaft and U-joints provide a means of transferring engine torque to the drive axles.
The issue is ,the F1 driveshaft is made from CF (lightweight carbon fibre)

Max breaks again. Karma is a bitch. But if he doesn't break he will probably win.

Yeah I'm hoping after Max's broken one in quali and the race, they've got their eyes on it.

May have to use last seasons ones if the problem continues.
