The F1 returns to make a stop in Australia in Melbourne on the circuit ofAlbert Park which has been deeply renovated to offer more spectacular and exciting races. The slow chicane between Curves-9 and 10, in fact, has been made very fast and from ‘full’ to allow the drivers to more easily chase the cars in front of them in order to attack in Curve-13, detached at 90 ° which was widened at the entrance and which is preceded by the third DRS zone in which the pilots will be able to operate the movable aileron. The other two are on the starting straight and on the extension leading to the braking of Curva-3, one of the historically most propitious points to look for the attack.
The simulations predict that lap times will be lowered by five seconds also because the section of Curva-6 has also been made faster. It is therefore impossible to unbalance on any favorite teams in Australia, even if the Ferrari F1-75 he should certainly be at ease in the tortuous sections and in the changes of direction such as the sequences of Curve 3-4-5 and the final 14-15-16.
