Statement: 2015 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix start time

As a result of the Jules Bianchi FIA Accident Panel Report, and discussions with Formula One Management, the start time for the 2015 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix will be moved from 5:00pm to 4:00pm local time.

As a leader in the delivery of Formula One events globally, safety of competitors, patrons and suppliers is always the primary commitment of the Australian Grand Prix Corporation and this slight change in start time reflects that.
