Melbourne confirms kick off date of 2016 F1 season

Organisers of the Australian grand prix have confirmed reports that the 2016 season will kick off earlier than originally planned.

Earlier, we reported that despite Melbourne already selling tickets for an early April season opener next year, Bernie Ecclestone has re-shaped the provisional calendar to reinstate a full four-week mid-season summer break.

“We’ll conduct the race on whatever date suits the requirements of the global F1 calendar except Easter (March 27). Otherwise, we’re open-minded,” Australian grand prix corporation (AGPC) chief Andrew Westacott said.

That date is March 20, two weeks earlier than planned.

“The change of the date is part of a number of changes on a provisional calendar issued by the World Motor Sport Council,” the AGPC announced in a statement.

“The race will remain the first race of the formula one season, where all eyes will be on Melbourne!” (GMM)
