The third race of the season is held in Melbourne, Australia, after two seasons of absence due to the pandemic. Local hero Daniel Ricciardo and the rest of the drivers on the grid return to the revamped Albert Park circuit.
The first two races of the year have left us two spectacular duels for victory between Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen. Both Ferrari and Red Bull have proven to be at a very even level, so there is nothing to indicate that the Australian Grand Prix is going to be dominated by one of them and even Carlos Sainz and Sergio Pérez could perfectly join the fight for victory at the Albert Park street circuit.
And it is that Formula 1 finally returns to Australia, after two years of absence forced by the pandemic. The urban circuit of the city of Melbourne has taken advantage of the time to renew its layout, being now much faster and posing a different challenge to the teams and drivers on the grid.
