Australia, Melbourne - March 02nd - 04th - 2001

About the Australian GP

Melbourne will host its sixth Grand Prix at Albert Park this year, and once again Formula One will kick off under the sunny skies and amongst the scenic surroundings of Albert Park. The atmosphere isn’t a patch on former Australian Grand Prix host Adelaide, but drivers and teams are happy enough with the facilities and circuit. This year the race will be keenly watched with the host of driver and team changes, including the anticipated first race appearance by Juan-Pablo Montoya, who lines up for BMW-Williams. In 2000 Michael Schumacher started his Championship campaign off in style with a convincing victory, while McLaren suffered an embarrassing double failure. The Woking squad will be aiming to return to winning ways this year.

Set up

High wing levels for maximum downforce on the Albert Park track. Medium to soft suspension settings are needed for stability over the bumpy approach to the corners, and teams will also fit larger brake ducts so the discs and callipers are cooled effectively during the traditionally long, hot event.
