One of the key changes made to the Albert Park Circuit ahead of this year's Australian Grand Prix has been revealed in a new video.

The chicane at Turns 9 and 10 has remained largely untouched for many years, but has now been given one of the most dramatic renovations of any part of the track.

This section of the circuit has transformed into a high-speed straight, stretching from Turn 6 to Turn 11, with the aim being to produce better opportunities for racing.

Speeds are expected to reach up to 330km per hour, and the drivers will experience an estimated 5.4G as they enter Turn 9.

Find out more in the third instalment of a four-part series from event organisers detailing the track changes.
