Australian GP releases 2017 schedule
11 January 2017 – Australian Grand Prix organisers have released the track schedule for this year's event.
Albert Park will host the 2017 season-opener from March 24-26, with the race keeping its 16:00 start time, though this will translate as 06:00 for UK viewers, rather than 05:00, due to the arrival of summer time.
As per tradition, the UK the clocks go forward one hour at 01:00 on the last Sunday in March.
Formula 1 action will kick off with Friday's first practice session at 12:00 local time (01:00 UK), which runs for an hour and a half, followed by the second 90-minute outing at 16:00 local time (05:00 UK).
On Saturday, FP3 will run at 14:00 local (03:00 UK), with qualifying at 17:00 local (06:00 UK).
Session times for other Grands Prix have yet to be confirmed by event organisers.
