F1 2023 Australian GP weather: Latest forecast from Melbourne

F1 heads down under for the third race of the season at the iconic Albert Park Circuit in Melbourne.


The grid heads down under for the third race of the 2023 F1 season at the Australian GP as Red Bull look to continue their dominant start to the year.

Max Verstappen still leads the Drivers’ Championship standings after snatching fastest lap at the end of the Saudi Arabian GP despite a first victory of the year for teammate Sergio Perez, and the Red Bull pair will likely duel for the win once again in Melbourne.

Charles Leclerc won the 2022 edition of the race at the Albert Park Circuit, but Ferrari have struggled so far this season and fallen behind Aston Martin and Fernando Alonso as the second-best team on the grid.
