Formula 1 has continued to grow in popularity, in part thanks to the Netflix series ‘Drive to Survive’. Fans in Australia also have a strong hunger for the motorsport, after the races in 2020 and 2021 were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
All grandstands at Albert Park, Melbourne were reshuffled by the Australian Grand Prix Corporation to cater for more fans at next year’s race.
