The Australian Grand Prix has always been more of a promoter event than a profit-raiser in itself. The contract was prolonged until 2023, although tobacco advertising has been banned since 2007.

Round 18 Hamilton makes a pitsstop driving in front of Vettel. Returning to the track as number 5 while Vettel takes advantage of the clear air in front of him. Lap 24 the German enters the pit for his first pitstop returning to the track just before Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.

At last the transmission failes on Daniel Ricciardo in lap 28 forcing him to retire. Alonso retires with only four laps remaining due to a broken suspension.
