“Since 1996, except on two occasions, the greatest racing spectacle in the world has kicked off its year in Melbourne and there really couldn’t be a location better than this fantastic city. The passion, knowledge and enthusiasm of the Melbourne crowd deserved a special thanks and this is why we have decided to organise the first ever Season Launch event in the history of the sport. We are incredibly excited to be putting on such a spectacle for our fans. It’s vital that we put them at the heart of everything we do, and this event provides us with a platform to engage with fans not just locally but also globally. And we are excited to see all the teams come together to kick off the season with a bang”. SEAN BRATCHES, Managing Director Commercial Operations, Formula 1®.The 2019 season also marks another historic moment for the sport – in China later this year – as F1 celebrates its 1000th Grand Prix!
