  • Defending champion Lewis Hamilton has won the Australian Grand Prix twice in his career with the previous win coming in 2015.

Another brand new season of Formula One vrooms into action on Sunday with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne. Defending champion Lewis Hamilton will hope to get the new campaign off to a winning start having topped the charts in the final practice session ahead of the season's maiden race.

The Briton has won the Australian Grand Prix twice in his career with the previous win coming in 2015. Hamilton's chief rival Sebastian Vettel emerged victorious in Melbourne last year, but has had to settle for second spots behind Hamilton in the first and final practice races ahead of the Australian GP.

Apart from the drivers' battle, all eyes will be on Ferrari who appeared to have the quickest car in pre-season testing, but the same did not transpire in the practice races. There was a suspicion that the Italian team were hiding their true pace ahead of the qualifying and main races. The practice races' outcomes have created further intrigue ahead of the season opener.
