Max Verstappen has urged Red Bull to be "straightforward and consistent" in its quest to end 12 years of Australian Grand Prix pain.
The team has failed to secure a victory at Albert Park since Sebastian Vettel's triumph in 2011, with Verstappen himself enjoying a best result of third in his six starts at the circuit.
But there is reason to be optimistic in putting that form behind him and the team, with the Milton Keynes-based outfit dominant in the opening two races of the season.
Verstappen was forced to settle for second at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix having risen from 15th on the grid, but was victorious over team-mate Sergio Perez by 12 seconds in the Bahrain season opener.
Verstappen praises circuit
"I’m looking forward to going to Australia again," said the two-time champion.
"The track is great with some high-speed corners, and one I enjoy driving so hopefully we can have a good race this weekend.
"We just need it to be straightforward and consistent."
