Australian Grand Prix 2022 Track Updates

Work is almost complete on the newly updated track for the 2022 Australian Grand Prix in Albert Park, Melbourne. I took a quick run around the track to see how the circuit looks ready for the race on April 10th.

The track has been completely resurfaced – shown here looking at the final turn (16)

I kept stopping to take photos, but not a bad lap time.

In case you’re not familiar with the circuit, here’s the F1 track diagram from the F1 site. I don’t own this, but I hope they don’t mind me using it.
