Before Betting On Australian Grand Prix

The action in Formula 1 continues this weekend, with the competitive racing being staged Down Under. The Australian Grand Prix has been staged at Albert Park Circuit since 1996, and last year’s dramatic edition was one of the most exiting races of the season. Max Verstappen eventually landed victory, finishing just under a second ahead of Lewis Hamilton.

This race will see the field compete over a total distance of 306.124 km, with a full lap covering 5.278 km. Michael Schumacher and Lex Davison are tied for the most wins in history, while Ferrari has been the dominant team throughout history after recording 13 victories.

Verstappen’s dominant start to the season is the clear angle to consider this weekend. The reigning world champion is looking for a third straight win to start the new season. Red Bull have also looked extremely dominant over the opening weeks after recording one-two finishes in each of the opening two races.

Ferrari showed their quality in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, with Charles Leclerc coming home to take third. However, there could have been more positives on track for McLaren. Oscar Piastri will have a passionate home town support this weekend, and his confidence will be high after finishing fourth in Saudi Arabia.
