The 2022 Formula 1 World Championship continues with the third round of the season in Melbourne's Albert Park as the sport returns to Australia.
F1 hasn't raced in the country since 2019, missing out on the 2020 and '21 editions of the popular event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Returning to the suburbs of Melbourne for the first time since the ill-fated trek at the scheduled start of the 2020 season, F1 is coming back to a significantly altered venue.
The track has gone through quite a lot of modifications aimed at improving the racing, with many of the tight, narrow corners widened, while the second sector has been straightened to ensure a flat out blast past the lake.
Will Albert Park see a resumption of the Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen battle that resulted in two thrilling races to kick off the season?
What time does the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix start?
The weekend will follow the usual format, with two 60-minute practice sessions taking place on Friday.
It's a weekend for the night-owls and early risers, if you're located in Europe.
FP1 is scheduled for 04:00 BST, with FP2 following at 07:00.
On Saturday, FP3 will be held at 04:00, before the first qualifying session of the season occurs at 07:00. This will determine the grid for Sunday's Australian Grand Prix, which starts at 06:00.
