The look of Albert Park will be changed before the Australian Grand Prix

The schedule of the Albert Park circuit in Melbourne will change ahead of the Australian Grand Prix on 21 November.

The traditional opening of the F1 season has been postponed until the second part of the season due to the coronavirus pandemic. This change of date made it possible to move the operation of the circle.

Reconstruction of the circuit will focus on addressing recent criticisms of the circuit. Although the place is still popular, drivers have expressed frustration with the limited opportunities to provide overtaking.

Work will begin on Monday and is expected to be completed in July.

The first phase has already been completed, the pitlane has been widened by two meters, and the pit wall has been moved to the edge of the road instead of the grassy edge. The second phase, the replacement of several parts of the circuit, has yet to be completed.

The biggest change will happen in the chic Turn 9/10, which should turn from a right-hander with strong braking into a part of the high-speed circuit.
