F1 Australian Grand Prix 2023: What to expect
Defending world champion Max Verstappen leads the drivers’ standings ahead of the third round of the 2023 F1 season, with only one point separating him and teammate Sergio Perez in second place. The opening two rounds of the season saw both drivers win, but Verstappen leads for the extra point secured for recording the fastest lap at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, while Pérez takes the win.
Fernando Alonso is third and the closest rival to challenge Red Bull Racing’s early dominance in the 2023 season. Aston Martin, Mercedes and Ferrari will all hope to achieve better results in Australia to prevent Red Bull Racing and its drivers from fleeing the championship too quickly.
Although the Albert Park Circuit in Melbourne, Australia is classified as a street circuit, the track design combines elements of both a purpose-built racetrack and a street circuit. Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen are the favorites going into the race, but fans will be hoping to see some action, especially from Aston Martin and Fernando Alonso.
