Australian Grand Prix
The 2017 Formula One season gets under way in Melbourne and will be the first time since 1994 that the reigning champion will not compete, after Nico Rosberg announced his retirement at the end of November. The Albert Park circuit is situated within a beautiful parkland south of Melbourne. It has a unique atmosphere and excitement unlike no other circuit. After achieving pole in the 2016 race, Lewis Hamilton was unable to cement his position on the grid and was beaten by eventual World Champion, Nico Rosberg, with Sebastian Vettel claiming third position.
