About Australian Grand Prix

The Australian Grand Prix is a motor race held annually in Australia, currently under contract to host Formula One until 2023.

The Grand Prix is the oldest surviving motor racing competition held in Australia having been held 79 times since it was first run at Phillip Island in 1928.

Since 1985, the race has been a round of the FIA Formula One World Championship and is currently held at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit at Albert Park in Melbourne.

Prior to its inclusion in the World Championship, it was held at a multitude of venues in every state of Australia.

It became part of the Formula One World Championship in 1985.

The winner of the race is presented with a circular plate, recently named the Jack Brabham trophy, and a perpetual trophy, the Lex Davison trophy.
