Round 9 brings PSF1 to Melbourne, Australia, where the drivers will fight along the streets of Albert Park. We may see a very technical race here as Australia is known to be notoriously hard to overtake on. The front straight, which has DRS, the second straight, also with DRS and the long curving back straight are the 3 main overtaking spots, other than that, people will be trying to get the undercut on their rivals from the outset.
The weather this weekend is an interesting one. Whilst it looks like qualifying might just remain dry, at the time of writing, there is a 53% chance of light rain throughout Sundays F1 race, which could certainly play into the hands of certain drivers.
With the gap between cliffy & OfficerJuan at just 10 now, the pressure on both drivers to perform is the highest it’s been all season. With just 3 races to go, every point matters, and Australia qualifying will be vital as track position certainly matters around here. Kartinglegend won here in season 3 and salvatore in season 4, so they will be hoping for strong races too.
Who will cross the line first? Find out on Sunday! In the meantime, go onboard for a hot lap of the Albert Park circuit below 🏁🏎
