To mark 60 years since the first Australian Grand Prix was held at Albert Park in 1953, a plaque commissioned by the Australian Grand Prix Corporation and the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport was unveiled at a ceremony on Saturday at Albert Park.
The plaque, which pays homage to the rich heritage of motorsport at the famous Albert Park street circuit, will be permanently located at the start/finish line of the 1953 race, what we now know as turn three, opposite the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.
Nine years ago Red Bull Racing did not even exist.
Today, Red Bull Racing have done what only the sport’s two longest-established teams, Ferrari and McLaren, had ever done before them: won the Constructors’ Championship four times in a row. Like those two great names, Red Bull also annexed the Drivers’ Championship in those four seasons.
With 13 victories in 2013, all to Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull have a career total of 47 and have vaulted from seventh to fifth in the all-time winning constructors’ list. The first of those 47 came only four years ago in China.
The Formula 1 World Championship turned 64 in 2013.
It also turned into a one-man show, with Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel underlining his right to be spoken of in the same breath as the greatest drivers in Grand Prix racing history.
The bald facts are that Vettel won 13 of the season’s 19 races. That matched the all-time record set by his idol and sometime mentor Michael Schumacher in a Ferrari back in 2004.
On a weekend of Australian Ashes triumph in his beloved sport of cricket, Mark Webber declared his own superb innings over at 215 – and walked off the F1 field with his head held high.
Second place in Brazil and fastest race lap in his 215th and final Grand Prix was a typically proud way for Webber to bow out of the sport he has graced since his headline-grabbing debut for Minardi at Melbourne’s Albert Park circuit in 2002.
Let’s dispense with the statistics straight away.
