Where to watch the Australian Grand Prix and Formula One World Championship online
The Formula One Championship is back, kicking off the 2018 racing schedule with the highly-anticipated Australian Grand Prix.
The Grand Prix is the oldest surviving motor racing competition held in Australia, with this year's event taking place from Friday 23 March to Sunday 25 March.
The Australian Grand Prix became a round of the FIA Formula One World Championship in 1985, racing the season's last round on the street circuit in Adelaide. Melbourne's Albert Park got a new track shortly after that, and in 1996 the city held the World Championship's first race.
Since then the race has become intensely popular with drivers and fans alike, and Melbourne's party atmosphere keeps Formula One enthusiasts returning for more year after year.
The Australian Grand Prix launches the 2018 Formula One World Championship and extends over the course of 21 Grand Prix races, ending in November with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
