Australian Grand Prix
Part of the Formula one Championship season, Australian Grand Prix is a formula one race that is held at Albert Park at Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit in Melbourne. Since its inauguration in 1928, Australian Grand Prix has been held at several different venues across Australia.
The race became the part of Formula One Championship in 1985, which is why the race moved to a new venue that was Adelaide Street Circuit in Adelaide. Since its association with Formula One since 1985 till 1995 the race was held there later the race moved to Melbourne in the following year.
Except 2006, the race is the first race of the year and it is also the round one of the Championship. However when the race was held in Adelaide from 1985 till 1995, it was the final round of the championship, taking the place of Portuguese Grand Prix in that respect.
As being the final round of the championship, Grand Prix held some of the most memorable times in the history of Grand Prix, which also included the final rounds of the Championship in 1986 and 1994, when those two respective titles were decided.
As far as the Grand Prix victories as concerned, team of Ferrari and Michael Schumacher are undoubtedly the most successful team and driver respectively in Grand Prix.
The only drivers that have started ever Melbourne race include David Coulthard, Giancarlo Fisichella and Rubens Barrichello. In November 2006 ING signed a three year agreement with Australian Grand Prix to become the naming rights sponsor.
During 1920's when Australian Grand Prix wasn't the part of Championship, the race still featured Formula One style racing vehicles, racing different venues year after year, which is why it would not be wrong to call Australian Grand Prix, one of the oldest races today.
Between the period of 1938 and 1958 the race was hosted at Mount Panorama Circuit four times. Before becoming the part of the championship the Australian Grand Prix also had pretty much same fate as French Grand Prix did, wandering from venues to venues from state to state.
During the era of 1950's race was held twice at Road Circuit at Albert Park in Melbourne. During that time, Lex Davison held the record of winning the race for the four times, however this record remained no longer as it was broken by Michael Schumacher in 2004.
During the era of 1960's Grand Prix also became an integral part of Tasman Series, in which some of the today's leading Formula One team took part, which helped the careers of new race drivers of the Grand Prix.
In 1970's the race lost its charm as it was called Formula 5000 race. However the 1980's helped the race regain its glory as some of the Formula One drivers were hired to race in Formula Atlantic Cars that was held at Calder Park Raceway.
The Formula Atlantic Cars was won by Roberto Moreno three times dominating the Atlantic era. On the domestic scale last Grand Prix was held in 1984 before it became the part of the Championship.
