F1 Race Calendar
The F1 2018 season starts with a bang down under in Melbourne.
The Australian GP became part of the Formula One Championship in 1985 when it was then competed in Adelaide. The Race then moved to Albert Park in 1996 and has been raced there ever since. The most successful driver of the Melbourne course is Michael Schumacher with 4 wins ahead of Jenson Button with 3. McLaren are the leading constructors with 12 wins ahead of Ferrari's 10.
The odds on favourite for the 2018 Australian Grand Prix is Lewis Hamilton with Vettel and Bottas being the closest of the challengers for the first week of the season.
Nico Rosberg won the Australian Grand Prix in 2016 beating Hamilton into 2nd and Vettel into 3rd. The charismatic Ricciardo managed to post the fastest lap!
