Australia is home to one of the world's most iconic motor racing venues: the Phillip Island Circuit. The Australian Grand Prix made its appearance in 1989, but went through several circuits before settling into its final headquarters in 1997. Located in Melbourne, the Phillip Island Circuit was originally built as an automobile track, but underwent modifications to ensure to maintain optimal quality levels. These ambitious works brought Australia to the forefront of motorsports, as it now has world-class facilities such as a golf course and a luxurious 5-star hotel.
Offering one of the most scenic views in the motoring world, the Phillip Island Circuit has a total length of 4.5 km and 12 turns. Its average speed of 177 km / h puts more wear on the tires, so the degree of difficulty increases as the drivers tackle the final laps. Turns 2 and 3, which are extremely difficult as they are very tight turns, generally give drivers more possibilities to pass their rivals. The last curve of the track is also an ideal place to overtake, as it leads to the main straight, which is the last opportunity to lead the test.
