The 2016 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix returns to the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit in Melbourne this Friday, airing over the weekend on TEN and ONE.
Unfortunately the timing this year means the big event on Sunday will fall into the Easter non-ratings period.
Following a disappointing season last year, Aussie hero Daniel Ricciardo will be back with a vengeance in 2016 as he sets his sights on a World Championship.
He will, however, have some tough competition on his hands with the unstoppable Mercedes duo of Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton out to prove a point.
Throughout the weekend, Network Ten’s expert team are set to provide first-class commentary on all the action on and off the track.
Australia’s most experienced Formula One driver, Mark Webber, joins the team again this year to offer his expert opinion and, following the success of last year, commentate all F1 sessions as well as qualifying and the race.
Mark joins TEN Sport’s Matt White and Mark Howard, former F1 World Champion Alan Jones and expert commentator Daryl Beattie on set with Mark Larkham, James Allen and Tom Clarkson to bring fans all the news from inside the F1 Paddock.
Network Ten will also bring viewers all the glamour and excitement of Formula One from around the circuit with a host of TEN stars including Grant Denyer, Chrissie Swan, Adam Gilchrist, Amanda Keller and Gary Mehigan on set in the Paddock Club throughout the weekend.
The 2016 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix promises to be an action-packed weekend of thrills and spills, on and off the track, live and free on Network Ten.
