What to expect from The Australian Grand Prix 2024


Australian Grand Prix 2024 f1 melbourne

The highly anticipated Australian Grand Prix 2024 is finally here, set to take place on the 24th of March. This prestigious event promises to deliver an exhilarating spectacle for all racing enthusiasts.

After a brief hiatus of nearly two weeks, fans are eagerly anticipating the thrilling competition between their favorite drivers. The Australian Grand Prix holds a special place in the Formula 1 calendar, known for its electrifying races.

Located at Albert Park in Melbourne, this technical track poses significant challenges for drivers, pushing them to their absolute limits. Over the years, this circuit has witnessed countless moments of exceptional overtaking maneuvers and strategic brilliance.

Now, let’s delve into what we can expect from this upcoming event.

Daniel’s Dillema

Unfortunately, Daniel Ricciardo has had a rather lackluster start to the season, with his teammate Yuki Tsunoda outperforming him in both races so far. Daniel’s performance at the Saudi Grand Prix drew criticism from both F1 experts and fans alike. He encountered issues during his pit stop, resulting in a significant loss of time and position. To add to his woes, he also spun out on the last few laps.

The upcoming Australian Grand Prix holds great significance for Daniels, as it presents a remarkable opportunity for him to showcase his skills and caliber. It is expected that he will excel in this race and secure a qualifying position, ultimately finishing in the points.

These races are pivotal for Daniel, especially considering that Sergio Perez’s contract is set to expire this year, and Red Bull may be in search of a second driver. Daniel has his sights set on this opportunity, but he must deliver an outstanding performance.

An Oscar for Oscar Piastri

Speaking of home race, there will be another driver racing for the second time at his home race.

Oscar Piastri, who finish eighth in 2023 adding four points to his tally will look to further enhance his performance to that of his debut year.

Piastri had a strong showing at the Australian Grand Prix in 2023, particularly considering the challenges posed by the underperforming McLaren car. The new McLaren MCL38, which is currently the third fastest car on the grid, should provide him with the opportunity to secure a podium finish.

Carlos Sainz’s return

Carlos was unable to participate in the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix due to undergoing appendicitis surgery. There is hope that he will make a comeback for the Australian Grand Prix. With his contract ending this year and no seat secured for 2025, Carlos will need to showcase his skills until the silly season begins to secure a spot for the following year.

Maximum for Max Verstappen

Max is anticipated to continue his impressive performance this season, currently holding a commanding lead of eight points at the top of the table. With solid strategy and reliability, it is highly likely that Max will secure his third win without any doubt.

A Ferrari spectacle

During the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2024, the Ferrari SF24 at the hands of Charles Leclerc had a similar pace to that of the Red Bull at the hands of Sergio Perez. The Ferrari engineering department has figured out a lot of issues with the car especially in terms of tire degradation and built a solid package which delivers.

So it’s a safe bet to expect a second place, or at least a podium, from Charles Leclerc.
