After a lengthy pause, F1 action comes to live tomorrow with the first grand prix of the 2012 season, happening at Melbourne, Australia. The impressive sound of the V8 aspirated engines will break the silence on the Albert Park Circuit beginning with 12:30 PM (EDT/GMT + 11) when Free Practice 1 is scheduled to start. The Friday programme continues with the FP2 session at 16:30 (Local Time). On Saturday, the last practice round happens at 14:00 (Local Time), with the qualifyings commencing three hours later, at 17:00 (Local Time). The big race on Sunday takes place at 17:00 (Local Time). All the teams are already there, so the "fight" should start very soon. Ready, set, go!
