Melbourne to host the F1 Australian Grand Prix until at least 2023

AGP2023Melbourne will continue to host the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix until at least 2023, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced.

An agreement between Formula One Management and the Victorian government was already in place through to the 2020 race, however the Albert Park circuit's F1 tenure has now been extended further.

The race moved to Melbourne in 1996 after 11 grands prix in Adelaide, and Albert Park is set to host the 2016 season opener on April 3.

The premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, announced the news on his official Facebook page.

"The Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix is here to stay exactly where it belongs, in the great city of Melbourne," Andrews said in the video.

CEO Eugene Arocca was excited to hear of the new agreement that sees almost 1000 CAMS Accredited Officials offer their services on a yearly basis to the world class event that is consistently voted the best on the global F1 calendar.

“It’s a wonderful achievement for Victoria and in our view confirms the outstanding reputation of the event worldwide. We congratulate the new chair John Harnden AM and Chief Exceutive Andrew Westacott on their efforts,” Arocca said.
