The Australian Grand Prix marks the third round of the 2024 Formula 1 season, held around the spectacular Albert Park Circuit.

Max Verstappen will start from pole position for the third consecutive race, whilst Carlos Sainz joins him on the front row of the grid.

A win for the three-time F1 champion would see him match his own record for 10 wins in a row.

But what weather conditions are the drivers set to face in the upcoming race?

Wind not a concern

Despite light drizzle early on Saturday morning, the race will take place in beautiful conditions. A completely dry and sunny race is expected by our friends at Weeronline.com.

The race will get underway at 15:00 local time, when the air temperature will be a pleasant 21 degrees Celsius.

Throughout the weekend so far, wind has been an issue at Turn 10. The corner has caught out the likes of Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton, George Russell and several others.

However, no strong gusts are expected, with only a moderate breeze from the south to southwest.
