Which track will host the first race of the season?

The British Grand Prix retains its July slot – which normally helps create one of the best races of the season with a mix of weather and droves of F1 enthusiasts creating an incredible atmosphere.

After a five-year absence from the season opening slot, the Australian Grand Prix will play host to the inaugural race of the season – with the Melbourne track set to receive the privilege of hosting the first contest of the year four times before 2032.

China will also step up to host the second race of the season a week after the Australia opener, as the sport bids to become more efficient in its emissions.

It means that Lewis Hamilton will make his Ferrari debut Down Under, as he sets about chasing his eighth world championship with the Scuderia.
