The 2023 Australian Grand Prix history is official

Australian Grand Prix Company confirmedNext year’s event will take place between March 30 and April 2, so Formula 1 will return to the track from March 31. This makes the race the third round of the Formula 1 World Championship for the second year in a row.

Although the competition has traditionally been the opening round during Melbourne’s great era, as part of a recently signed contract extension, the event will now take place every season. He will appear in the first three rounds. As part of the new deal, Albert Park will now only guarantee five opening seasons between now and 2035. The AGP will open the 2024 and 2025 seasons, and the other three opening venues will be distributed over the following decade. In the meantime, the 2023 race promises to be significant as it will likely feature a Melbourne-born driver on the grid for the first time.

Oscar Piastre is expected to race for McLaren next season, becoming the third Australian to compete at home in the Melbourne era, and the first driver from Melbourne, after Mark Webber and Daniel Ricciardo. It is not entirely clear if there will be two Australians on the grid, with Ricciardo expected to lose his McLaren seat to make way for Piastre. The Perth-born driver could land again in Alpine in some kind of smooth swap, given that Piastri is trying to break away from the French manufacturer.

The 2023 AGP will also introduce a completely new entry programme, as FIA Formula 2 and Formula 3 will compete in Australia for the first time.
