Presented by the City of Melbourne, the enormous specially formulated race helmet will be on display in a series of public exhibitions around Melbourne in February and March free of charge for all to explore.

Webber thanks fans with iconic Bolte drive

Australian Formula One driver Mark Webber is set to thrill Australian fans with a taste of his high-octane expertise by crossing Melbourne's iconic Bolte Bridge in a Red Bull Racing F1 car.

The spectacular 'Red Bull Run' will take place at 9.45am on Saturday 19 March as a prelude to the 2011 Formula 1™ Qantas Australian Grand Prix and opening round of the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship season.

A great place for the first race!

When Melbourne first welcomed the Formula One World Championship in 1996, the catch-cry for the event was "What a great place for the race!" Sixteen years on, it's still a great place for the race – and the reigning World Champion himself agrees.

Sebastian Vettel was a boy of eight when the race was first run here, so he came late to the attractions of Albert Park. But it didn't take him long to figure out how good the circuit and the city are.
