Australian Grand Prix is an annual motor race, formally known as the Formula One Rolex Australian Grand Prix, that has been held in Australia since 1928, and has been contested for 83 times.

It has served as a great platform to showcase the very best of the sports cars and drivers all around the world. Audiences across the globe gather to witness the world’s finest sports cars and the men behind them.

That is why the Australian Grand Prix is considered as one of the great events of Australia. The Melbourne race will take place at Albert Park, marking the first round of the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship.

The Australian Grand Prix has been around for decades and people from all over from Australia as well as the rest of the world come to watch it.

Spectators not only get to see the most sensational races happening in real time but it is great occasion to gather have quality time with your friends.

People gather from different parts of Australia and the world, and Melbourne buzzes with tourists, great food, music and excitement. Thus, the Australian Grand Prix becomes more than a racing event.

Once more, the 2018 Australian Grand Prix was held on March 25 in Melbourne. The total distance covered was 58 laps, 307.574 kilometres. Once again, Hamilton secured the pole position and Vettel won the race, but Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo clocked the fastest lap.

The 2019 Australian Grand Prix is likely to be as grand as the last two editions, and more people are definitely expected to attend.

This year, 20 drivers representing ten teams are going to enter into the race. Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel enters the round as the defending race winner and Lewis Hamilton enters the round as the defending World Drivers’ Champion.

Needless to say, this event will attract thousands of tourists as well, on top of the attendees. So, if you have been planning vacations in Australia, this would be great time to visit.
