Pre Race Report
A classic venue for the opener of the 2015 Formula One season. The park circuit is built especially for the Australian Grand Prix and often boasts one of the best races of the year.
Last year the home crowd reached a frenzy as they wished on the Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo to second place. Drama followed when the podium was later stripped away by the stewards for an illegal car.
It’s certain that Ricciardo will be back fighting hard to rightfully take that podium in 2015.
