The Australian Grand Prix returned in 2022 after two years of being called off due to Covid. The news was received with jubilation by Australian motorsport fans who filled the many grandstands at the Albert Park circuit in record numbers. Not only was it the first chance for these fans to see F1 racing in three years, but they got an early glimpse of the new generation of cars. Coupled with the newly profiled circuit, with multiple changes designed to make overtaking easier, produced an excellent race. Charles Leclerc roared to his first ever win Down Under that year, while in 2023, Max Verstappen did the same in front of a record crowd of 444,631.
