26 Mar 08:27 1 laps left and it looks like Australia will start Ferrari's podium revival as Vettel commands in Melbourne.

26 Mar 08:03 Vettel in command with an 8sec lead ahead of Hamilton. Could this be Ferrari's first win of the season? 
26 Mar 07:51 Vettel is still holding off challenge by both Mercedes, with Hamilton behind in second. It doesn't seem as though Hamilton is enjoying his new soft tyres...
26 Mar 07:50 "It's gone from bad to worse. It looks like an engine problem. It's not Daniel's day." - Christian Horner, Red Bull chief.

26 Mar 07:00 There are 58 laps of the 3.3m Albert Park circuit with 16 corners for the drivers to negotiate.
26 Mar 06:59 Formation lap underway. The new cars look impressive. 
Finish Thanks for joining our live coverage of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix. Catch you all in China in a couple of weeks!
Finish Hulkenberg, Giovinazzi and Vandoorne, in P13, are the only other drivers to finish.
Finish Perez finishes seventh, followed by the two Toro Rosso drivers Sainz and Kvyat respectively. Claiming the final point is Force India's Ocon.
Finish Raikkonen holds off Verstappen for fourth spot, while Felipe Massa finishes in a very respectable P6.
Finish VETTEL WINS THE AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX! Ferrari draw first blood in the 2017 title race and secure their first win since Singapore in 2015! Hamilton comes home in second ahead of team-mate Bottas.
Lap 57 Vettel begins his final lap, +10.3s ahead of Hamilton in second.
Lap 55 Verstappen has a sliver of hope of catching Raikkonen in fourth. The gap down to +1.8s.
Lap 53 Well there is one McLaren which won't finish the race. After been overtaken twice in quick succession, Alonso reports a problem and nurses the car back to the pits.
Lap 52 Esteban Ocon is all over the back of Alonso for the final points finish. He enables DRS down the pit straight and flies past the McLaren, but from out of nowhere here comes Hulkenberg, too! He can't pass Ocon but does gobble up the MCL32. Alonso slips down to P12.
Lap 51 Yellow flags in the final sector. Magnussen has stopped and his race is run. Double DNF for the Haas team.
Lap 49 Backmarker Magnussen comes into the pits again, while Kvyat moves past team-mate Sainz to take P8.
Lap 47 Ten laps remaining. Vettel still has a very healthy eight second gap to Hamilton, who in turn is keeping Bottas at arm's length.
Lap 45 Verstappen almost within two seconds of Raikkonen now. Meanwhile, Hamilton's complaining about engine power. He's moaned about pretty much everything so far today!
Lap 44 Stroll's debut has come to a premature end. He has retired from the race and is wheeled back into the garage. His FW40 did not sound particularly healthy for quite some time.
Lap 43 Verstappen sets the new fastest lap of the race - a 1:27.045 on the supersoft tyre. He is getting ever closer to Raikkonen with the gap down to 3.3s.
Lap 41 Vettel's team-mate Raikkonen is 24 seconds behind in fourth place and could have fifth-placed Verstappen for company as we head toward the latter stages.
Lap 39 Meanwhile, out in front, Vettel is now over eight seconds clear of Hamilton. Ferrari were often criticised for their race strategies last season, but they look like they have got it spot on this afternoon.
Lap 37 Hamilton has been told to stick to Plan A. He looks like he is going to be forced to defend P2 as team-mate Bottas has closed the gap to under three seconds.
Lap 35 It's all quiet on track. A nod to Alonso, though, who is still running in the points with just 22 laps remaining.
Lap 34 Hamilton team radio: ""Let us know what you can do - we need to close that gap." It looks like the Brit will need a rocket strapped to his W08 at this stage.
Lap 31 Hamilton is still making no progress on the soft compound. The gap to Vettel is +6.2s.
Lap 29 Ricciardo looks to have stopped in a relatively safe area. Only yellow flags at the moment, no sign of a safety car...which Hamilton is in desperate need of.
Lap 29 Ricciardo's race, if you can call it that, has definitely come to a stop now. He's grinded to a halt at Turn 3 with the front end smoking.
Lap 28 Mercedes are working on a Plan B for Hamilton, possibly switching to a two-stop strategy.
Lap 27 Hamilton is +6.3 seconds behind race leader Vettel. What a turnaround!
Lap 26 Hamilton is finally past Verstappen, but only because the Dutchman has dived into the pits. Bottas also makes his first pit stop, as does Raikkonen, who has been struggling for pace all afternoon.
Lap 26 A slam of the fist from Mercedes boss Wolff in the garage. Hamilton still can't find a way past Verstappen and Vettel is pulling away.
Lap 25 Yellow flags in the final sector. Ericsson has come to a stop. Probably his early squabble with Magnussen catching up with him.
Lap 24 And the overcut works! After a great stop, Vettel nips out ahead of Hamilton and manages to keep Verstappen in between! This is looking very good for Ferrari!
Lap 23 In comes Vettel into the pits...
Lap 21 Hamilton is now urged on over the team radio to try and clear Verstappen in fourth. He's struggling to close the gap and is losing time to Vettel.
Lap 20 Hamilton has concerns about the floor of his Mercedes, suggesting he may have run wide somewhere. He was slow through sector 1...
Lap 19 New race leader Vettel has an awful lot of clear air ahead of him after clearing Ericsson in P14. Is the overcut on here?
Lap 18 Another retirement! Palmer was continuing to run very slowly and Renault have decided to call it a day.
Lap 17 Hamilton blinks first and comes into pits. He emerges with a set of soft tyres as Vettel goes on to try and weave his way through a bit of traffic.
Lap 15 That retirement puts Alonso into the top 10. He's getting every last drop out of the troubled MCL32.
Lap 14 We have our first retirement...and it's Romain Grosjean in the Haas which is smoking very heavily. It's a very abrupt end to his afternoon after qualifying in P6.
Lap 13 There's a nice little battle developing for P14 between Antonio Giovinazzi and Stroll. The Canadian teenager has a look down into Turn 1 but thinks better of it.
Lap 12 Jolyon Palmer has a problem with his brakes down in P17. He's still running, but not particularly quickly.
Lap 11 Hamilton is complaining that his tyres are overheating, which will be music to Ferrari's ears.
Lap 10 Bottas is quietly going about his business in P3, but he is letting the front two get away from him. He is 5s behind Vettel.
Lap 9 A response from Vettel. He sets the new fastest lap of the race. The gap to Hamilton is 1.5s.
Lap 8 "Alright, Daniel, get stuck in. Have fun." That's the message to Ricciardo over the team radio. He's a lap down on the field but it is still a phenomenal effort from the mechanics to get him back out there at all.
Lap 7 Stroll has been forced into an early pit stop after a massive lock-up at the first corner following lights out. He returns in P18.
Lap 6 Hamilton is getting into the groove. He sets a new fastest lap of the race and moves out of DRS range.
Lap 4 Ericsson is also able to continue, but stewards are investigating the incident with Magnussen. Kvyat, down in 10th, has a problem with his DRS and has Fernando Alonso breathing down his neck.
Lap 3 Hamilton opens up a +0.678 gap on Vettel, but the German is not letting him get away. Further down the field, rookie Lance Stroll has jumped from last place to 14th! Great start!
Lap 2 Magnussen has picked up a puncture but is able to nurse the car back to the pits and continue. Meanwhile, there's huge cheers from the home crowd as Ricciardo makes it out of the garage.
Lap 1 Vettel is forced to defend from Valtteri Bottas but manages to keep hold of P2. Further down the field, there's a coming together between Marcus Ericsson and Kevin Magnussen!
Start LIGHTS OUT! GO! GO! GO! And Hamilton gets off to a great start and leads into Turn 1.
16:05 "Grip feels poor on the grid," says Hamilton. Starts have not always been his strong point...
16:03 False alarm. We looked all set to begin but the start has been aborted as Nico Hulkenberg has gone into the wrong grid spot. Another formation lap begins and we now have a 57-lap race.
16:00 The drivers have begun their formation laps. The top 10 will all start on the ultrasoft compound.
15:56 We're almost ready to go. There are 58 laps of the 3.3m Albert Park circuit with 16 corners for the drivers to negotiate.
15:55 There's hope for Ricciardo. He is back in his car and could be able to start from the pit lane.
15:52 There was an issue with Daniil Kvyat's Toro Rosso as he parked up in P9 with his fire extinguisher emptying. It looks like it has been resolved, though. Dramatic start already!
15:49 Red Bull boss Christian Horner: "There appears to be an electrical issue with Ricciardo's car. It is stuck in sixth gear. We are going to get him back in the pits and see if there is any way we can get him back into the race."
15:44 Never mind the cars catching the eye on the grid. Force India team principal Bob Fernley is turning heads left, right and centre with his pink trousers! Brave man.
15:38 Ricciardo's weekend is going from bad to worse. As the cars head down to the grid, the Aussie gets stuck in gear and has to come to a stop. His race looks like it's over before it's even begun!
15:30 The pit lane is open! Just 30 minutes to go until lights out.
15:25 Mercedes boss Toto Wolf has been asked about a possible partnership with McLaren should they decide to end their rocky relationship with engine suppliers Honda. His response? "For us it's important we have a level playing field and that we have many manufacturers in the sport." Very diplomatic.
15:13 Ricciardo's team-mate Max Verstappen will start down in P5 as Red Bull struggled to keep in touch with the leading duo. The Dutchman said after qualifying that the race would be "boring", let's hope that is not the case!
15:10 Ricciardo on grid penalty: "It is not perfect. But it is how it is and it is more motivation to carve through the field and give the crowd more to cheer me on with."
15:07 The first big piece of news to bring you is that home favourite Daniel Ricciardo has been given a five-place grid penalty after his spin in Q3. He will now start down in 15th.
15:00 Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the Australian Grand Prix. The wait is finally over! Lewis Hamilton secured his 62nd pole of his career, but right behind him is Sebastian Vettel in a resurgent Ferrari, who are on the front row of the grid of the first time since 2015. The lights will go out in an hour's time.
18:11 There we have it: Hamilton secures the first pole position of the season. That's his 62nd pole of his career, just three behind Ayrton Senna and six behind Michael Schumacher. Thanks for joining our live coverage. Make sure to join us again for race day on Sunday!
18:07 Now can Ferrari respond? Raikkonen can only find a couple of tenths so stays firmly in P4, but here comes Vettel around the final corner...No! He's +0.268 slower than Hamilton but does manage to get himself on the front row and split the two Mercedes drivers!
18:06 Hamilton is absolutely flying! After a superb first sector, he posts a 1:122.188 and knocks team-mate Bottas down into P2. The Finn had provisional pole for all of two seconds!
18:05 Here we go then! Two minutes left of the session and one last battle for pole is about to begin...
18:03 Only Grosjean is out on track at the moment, looking to improve on P7. It's a neat and tidy lap until he locks up at the penultimate corner, but he still manages to sneak up to P5, for now.
18:01 Ricciardo hitches a lift back to the pits and, with helmet firmly on, he storms through the Red Bull garage and out of sight. It remains to be seen whether he too will suffer a five-place gearbox penalty.
18:00 And we're back underway. Before Ricciardo's crash, Raikkonen was almost a second slower than provisional pole sitter Hamilton. However, he did confirm on the team radio, albeit with some rather colourful language, that he made a mistake.
17:58 Session will restart in two minutes. It looks like the track has missed the worst of the rain and the sun is starting to peek through the clouds again.
17:55 The session has been suspended with eight minutes remaining. All remaining cars are back in the pits, waiting to resume.
17:53 Red flag! Red flag! There's a dust storm down at Turn 14 and emerging from it is the home favourite Ricciardo! He is caught pushing too hard and goes crashing into the barrier after a spin. "Sorry guys," he mutters on the team radio.
17:50 Bottas, Vettel and Hamilton are all locked in battle for provisional pole...and it's Hamilton who pulls it out of the bag first with a 1:22.496. Vettel is +0.300s behind in P2 and then comes Bottas +0.302s slower.
17:48 Right on cue, it's started to rain a little as the pit lane light goes green for the final time today. Ferrari and Mercedes are heading out on dry tyres and are understandably keen to get on with it.
17:44 All set for Q3? Thought so. We have the usual suspects at the front of the grid, with Williams Haas and Toro Rosso squabbling for top ten positions.
17:41 Looks like some misinformation has been spread. Hamilton was on new tyres after all!
17:40 Alonso is able to sneak one more lap in, but it's not enough to get out of the elimination zone. We also lose Esteban Ocon, Marcus Ericsson, Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg.
17:39 Many were expecting Hamilton to head back out before Q2 finishes. He is staying in the pits though, meaning he will start tomorrow's race on used, six-lap old ultra tyres.
17:37 Hang on a second, Vettel is back out and flying! He lights up the screen with plenty of purple and... goes P4. It looks like he backed off significantly in the final sector. Still sandbagging at this stage?!
17:34 Alonso reporting a loss of engine power in the MCL32. In other news, water is wet.
17:30 Ricciardo dips below the 1:24s mark to go fifth fastest. He is +0.774 off the pace set by Mercedes. It's getting darker and darker out there!
17:28 Mercedes are cranking up the pressure. Bottas sets a 1:23.215 and Hamilton swiftly follows +0.036 slower on used tyres.
17:25 Green light! We're back underway and Mercedes are straight back out on the ultrasofts, clearly wary of the threat posed by Ferrari. Meanwhile, the dark clouds are closing in and the track temperature is dropping...
17:24 We're all set for Q2. Although Stroll was 19th fastest overall in the Williams, he will start last on the grid on Sunday because of his five-place grid penalty. Not the best way to start your F1 debut...
17:18 Oh and what a shame for Giovinazzi! He makes a mistake in Sector Three and misses the cut for Q2, as does Vandoorne, Palmer, Stroll and Kevin Magnussen. Raikkonen managed to improve to P2.
17:15 Jolyon Palmer is going to be able to set a time, leaving Vandoorne as the only driver not to do so.
17:13 Here comes the home favourite Daniel Ricciardo...and goes fourth fastest in the session +1.192s off the pace. Raikkonen is back out again on the ultrasoft tyre.
17:12 Hamilton goes three tenths clear of Bottas with a 1:24.191. Elsewhere, Stroll has made it. Hurrah!
17:10 Lock-up for Max Verstappen at Turn 6. He reports a small flat spot on his front left but is going to continue.
17:08 More trouble for McLaren. A problem with the fuel flow sees Stoffel Vandoorne trudge back to the garage. Sigh.
17:07 What have Mercedes got in the bag? Valtteri Bottas locks up at the final corner but still posts a 1:24.5. Lewis Hamilton swiftly follows, +0.021s slower.
17:05 Fernando Alonso posts the first time of the session: a 1:27.745. Meanwhile, Kimi Raikkonen has had to abandon his first quali lap after running wide.
17:00 We have gone green for Q1...and it's McLaren who are the first team to blink first.
16:57 It's going right down to wire to get Lance Stroll back out in time. Will he make it?
16:55 The final 12-minute session is held to decide pole position and the starting order for the top 10 grid places.
16:54 The 15 remaining cars run in a 15-minute session, at the end of which the slowest five are eliminated from qualifying, leaving 10 to head on to Q3.
16:53 If you're in need of a quick reminder: Q1 lasts for 18 minutes, at the end of which time the five slowest drivers are eliminated from qualifying and 15 advance to Q2.
16:48 To make things a little more interesting, we are reliably informed that there is a 40% chance of rain in the qualifying session. It's pretty overcast at the moment, but still warm at 28 degrees.
16:43 If you missed FP3 and wondering where Ferrari's third driver Antonio Giovinazzi has popped up from, well he has been thrown in at the deep end after Sauber's Pascal Wehrlein declared himself unfit to race prior to the session. Giovinazzi only got 18 laps under his belt before the session was red-flagged.
16:32 Williams are in a race of their own at the moment, with mechanics working hard to get Lance Stroll's car ready in time for Q1. His FW40 suffered an awful lot of damage following his crash at Turn 10. His gearbox has had to be changed, meaning he has been slapped with a five-place grid penalty for the race.
16:30 Welcome back to Albert Park in Melbourne for what promises to be a very intriguing qualifying session for the Australian Grand Prix. It was all about Mercedes on Friday, but after Sebastian Vettel broke the lap record in FP3, we could have a real ding-dong battle on our hands for pole position. Q1 gets underway in 30 minutes.
15:01 Join us in two hours for qualifying for the Australian GP. Cheers.
15:00 FP3 ends under red with Vettel fastest of all ahead of Bottas and Hamilton.
14:59 The session will not be started.
14:55 Five minutes remaining but we are still under red.
14:52 Stroll makes his way through a break in the catch fence as replays show he got it wrong coming out of a left-hander and whacked the wall with the right side of the car.
14:51 Red flag and those simple words "I hit the wall".
14:50 Stroll in the wall! The Williams rookie is limping to a halt on the track with damage to the right side of his car.
14:49 Great improvement from Hulkenberg, who leaps up to fifth place ahead of Ricciardo on his ultrasoft run.
14:45 Red Bull team boss Christian Horner predicts that Ferrari are running lighter fuel loads than Mercedes, "and if they are not, they are ballistically quick."
14:42 Bottas goes second quickest, 0.479s down, and Hamilton goes third, a further 0.011 down. The British racer lost time in the middle sector.
14:41 Both Bottas and Hamilton are out on a new set of ultras.
14:38 Vettel responds to Raikkonen's time with a 1:23.380, which is a new fastest ever lap around the Albert Park circuit!
14:36 Raikkonen is back out on track, on a new set of ultras, and he goes P1 ahead of Vettel. It is a 1:23.988 for the Finn, which puts him 0.001s up on his team-mate.
14:33 Lawn-mowing time for Vandoorne who gets it a bit wrong and works his way through the grass.
14:32 Ricciardo is 0.3s down on Vettel in the first sector, 0.9s down through the second and he crosses the line with a 1:25.1, which is 1.1s off the pace.
14:31 Grosjean locks up once again and reports that he is "really struggling with the front left." Yip, we can see that.
14:30 Ricciardo heads out on a new set of ultras putting him on the same compound as pace-setter Vettel.
14:26 Here comes Hamilton, on the supersofts, and he is second, 0.5s down.
14:25 Ericsson is 4.2s off the pace, Giovinazzi is 4.5s.
14:24 Hulkenberg is P10, Alonso P11 and Vandoorne goes 14th.
14:23 Bottas slots into second place on the supersoft tyres. 0.6s down on Vettel's P1 time.
14:20 The Swede is out on track along with Bottas, Vandoorne, Alonso and Hulkenberg. All five have yet to post a lap time.
14:19 Giovinazzi continues to slowly improve his times with every passing lap. Still waiting for a comparative time from his team-mate Marcus Ericsson.
14:18 Here comes another rookie in Lance Stroll, and he does a 1:28.1.
14:17 Giovinazzi ups his pace and is now six seconds down on Vettel's pace-setting time.
14:15 Vettel ups his pace to a 1:23.9 as he goes purple in the final two sectors. He is lapping on the ultrasoft Pirellis.
14:12 A mistake from Raikkonen who is told he "may have a puncture rear left, puncture rear left." He is halfway into the car park down an escape road and reports that the car has "stopped." He gets it going and slowly heads back to the pits.
14:10 Giovinazzi heads out for his lap as a Sauber driver. He did put in a day of testing during the pre-season.
14:09 Kimi Raikkonen hits the front for Ferrari but it is short lived as Vettel comes through with a 1:24.308.
14:07 A 1:25.5 is the first time on the board this morning from Ricciardo.
14:04 Hamilton heads out followed by Daniel Ricciardo and looks as if Sauber's new boy will be out soon, nope Giovinazzi instead takes a drink. Felipe Massa and Stoffel Vandoorne take to the circuit.
14:02 Bottas, who admits that Friday's gap to Hamilton was "big" but that it didn't worry him, is the next man out.
14:01 Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen in the Haas cars are the first drivers out on track.
14:00 Green light and FP3 is underway.
13:58 Cloud cover and a few spits of rain coming down, but no expectation for it to get any worse.
13:55 Five minutes to the start of FP3.
13:46 The big question everyone is asking this morning is can anyone stop Lewis Hamilton. He claimed back-to-back P1s on Friday, first ahead of Valtteri Bottas and then Sebastian Vettel. Can he make it a third this practice and what about qualifying? Have Ferrari been sandbagging and for that matter, what more do Mercedes have in hand. All this will be answered as today's action unfolds.
13:37 The big news in the build up to this session is that Pascal Wehrlein has withdrawn from the remainder of the weekend after declaring that he is not fit enough to complete a race distance. The German was injured in the pre-season when he crashed at the Race of Champions. He will be replaced by Ferrari third driver Antonio Giovinazzi.
13:30 Welcome back to the Albert Park street circuit for the third and final practice session for the Australian Grand Prix weekend. All times are local.
17:35 Thanks for following our live coverage at Albert Park. Make sure to join us again for FP3 and qualifying on Saturday!
17:32 It's looking pretty ominous out in front. Mercedes pick up where they left off in FP1 with Hamilton finishing quickest again. Vettel is +0.547s off the pace in second and Bottas completes the top three, +0.556s behind. Raikkonen finishes fourth, then the Red Bull duo of Ricciardo and Verstappen round off the top six.
17:30 And out comes the chequered flag to bring an end to a very disruptive second practice session, sparked by Jolyon Palmer suffering a heavy crash at the final turn.
17:29 The track is clear again with 30 seconds remaining...
17:25 And what do we have here? Marcus Ericsson is in the gravel with a smoking Sauber. His stoppage prompts the virtual safety car to come into effect and, with just five minutes remaining, that could be FP2 pretty much done and dusted.
17:23 Yellow flags are waving after a pit lane entry bollard makes its quest for freedom.
17:17 Whisper this, but McLaren are having a drama-free session. Alonso is running in P12, pretty respectable given all the problems the Woking team are having, while Stoffel Vandoorne is down in 17th.
17:15 As was the case in FP1, Hamilton is lapping quicker than his team-mate Bottas in the longer runs. Very early days, but the Finn looks like he has a helluva job on his hands this year.
17:13 Magnussen is back out...and is straight back in again with the same water issue that affected him earlier in the session.
17:09 Plenty of drivers on long runs, so not too much change to the timesheets at the moment. Carlos Sainz, running seventh and currently on lap 11 of his latest stint, has been on the radio to complain about oversteer. His pace has dropped off by a second.
17:06 Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has given an update on his drivers: Ricciardo's car is undergoing a few tweaks after the Aussie complained about the balance; there's also work being done on the floor of Verstappen's RB13 after his earlier run-off.
17:02 Bottas is the latest to slide off track, but he remains in complete control throughout and is quickly back on the throttle.
17:00 With 30 minutes of FP2 remaining, here's a quick look at the top six: 1) Lewis Hamilton 1:23.620; 2) Sebastian Vettel 1:24.167; 3) Valtteri Bottas 1:24.176; 4) Kimi Raikkonen 1:24.525; 5) Daniel Ricciardo 1:24.650; 6) Max Verstappen 1:25.015.
16:49 Verstappen is pushing, pushing, pushing...and goes way wide at Turn 12 to wipe away his lap time. He dives back into the pits.
16:46 As we head into the second half of FP2, over three quarters of the field are currently back in the garage. There's good news for Haas, though, as Magnussen is ready to head back out again after an early stoppage.
16:42 As Raikkonen does a spot of lawn-mowing, Vettel is 0.5s slower than Hamilton but it's still enough to split the two Mercedes drivers at the top of the timesheets.
16:40 All eyes on Hamilton as he lights up the screen with big patches of purple... A 1:23.620 on the ultras! That shoots him all the way up to P1.
16:38 As Grosjean continues to take the scenic route via another gravel trap, Verstappen gets to within 0.087s of leader Vettel with a 1:25.013.
16:35 And now Felipe Massa has come to a stop at Turn 10! The Brazilian said he was struggling to find gear, but he is out of harm's way and we have yellow flags as the FW40 is wheeled away.
16:33 After a quick clean-up operation, the green flags are waving again with 57 minutes of the session remaining.
16:28 Palmer lost the rear on the deceptively tight final corner and collided with the tyre wall at the start of the pit straight before facing the wrong way on track. He's in no mood to talk to reporters and ducks quickly for cover.
16:25 The RS17 has taken an awful lot of damage and has come to a stop on the middle of the track. Thankfully, the Brit is unhurt after the incident and trudges back to the garage.
16:23 Red flag! Jolyon Palmer has crashed his Renault at the final corner!
16:20 Fernando Alonso and Max Verstappen are the only drivers yet to set a time in FP2 so far. But both cars look just about ready to go again...
16:17 Both Raikkonen and Bottas are on the ultras, with Hamilton buzzing around on softs. Meanwhile, Magnussen's second practice session looks to be over already after heading back to the garage. Those pesky brakes.
16:12 Out come the Mercedes duo. Hamilton posts a 1:25.283 before team-mate Bottas responds with a 1:25.149...then Raikkonen goes better straight away with a 1:25.087. An action-packed start to FP2!
16:09 Grosjean begins with a 1:26.912 and Magnussen is four tenths slower. However, both Haas drivers are not having an easy time of it with lock-ups galore already. Grosjean finds the gravel trap at Turn 1 and Magnussen is told to "box, box, box".
16:04 And out comes Stoffel Vandoorne in the orange and black MCL32. His team-mate Fernando Alonso is not going anywhere in a hurry, though, with mechanics working frantically on his car. Insert your own jokes here.
16:00 The pit lane light turns green...and the two Haas drivers, Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen, are the first out of the blocks.
15:50 After catching the eye in Winter Testing, Ferrari fell a bit flat in FP1 with Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel down in P5 and P6 respectively. The latter certainly had a frustrating start; held up by a Sauber on his fastest lap and also running into DRS trouble. Gradual improvement from the Scuderia, perhaps?
15:40 To give you an indication of just how quick these 2017 beasts can be, Hamilton's best FP1 time of 1:24.220 was over five seconds quicker than his best time in 2016. The lap record at Albert Park, set by Michael Schumacher in 2004, was a 1:24.125!
15:30 Welcome back one and all for the second practice session at Albert Park. There was a familiar sight at the top of the FP1 leaderboard as the mighty Mercedes occupied the top two with Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas respectively. But, with the likes of Daniel Ricciardo and Kimi Raikkonen still yet to run on the ultrasofts, we may see the front of the grid tighten up a little bit over the next couple of hours. The pit lane light will go green in 30 minutes...
13:34 That's it for now. Join us in two hours for FP2 from the Albert Park circuit.
13:33 And Stroll covered 29 laps without issue to finish P13.
13:32 McLaren finish with 30 laps on the board, a P14 for Alonso and P20 for Vandoorne.
13:31 So despite predictions that this would be Ferrari's season, FP1 begins with a 1-2 for Mercedes with Hamilton ahead of Bottas. Red Bull are third and fourth ahead of the Ferrari drivers. Behind them in a great mix with Felipe Massa, Romain Grosjean, Nico Hulkenberg, Sergio Perez and Carlos Sainz.
13:30 The chequered flag is out and FP1 in Melbourne is over. Any driver on a lap can complete it.
13:28 Two minutes remaining...
13:26 As for rookie driver Stroll, the 18-year-old has had an error-free FP1. He is onto his 25th lap and is 13th fastest.
13:24 Over at McLaren, Alonso is P14, 2.8s off the pace, and Vandoorne remains slowest of all, 4.5s down.
13:21 Used tyres is the trend of the moment as even those drivers returning to the track are doing so on old rubber so don't expect any hot times to come through.
13:16 Bottas returns to the track on a used set of ultras. The tyres have covered five laps so far.
13:15 That's better from Vettel who jumps from P19 to P6. He is 1.2s off Hamilton's P1 time.
13:13 Vettel, who had fallen to 19th on the timesheets, returns to the track on a new set of the soft tyres.
13:11 Hamilton pits after six laps on the ultras as the teams keep an eye on the wear rate of the tyres.
13:08 At interesting mix in the timesheets with Williams, Force India, Toro Rosso, Haas and Toro Rosso again inside the top ten.
13:05 Bottas has a lawn mowing moment through Turn 12 and kicks up a suitable amount of dirt.
13:04 Game over for Palmer, who has a transmission problem that has likely brought his FP1 to a premature conclusion.
13:00 30 minutes remaining and Hamilton goes quickest on the ultras with a 1:24.220.
12:59 Purple in the first and second sectors for Bottas and he goes quickest with a 1:24.803.
12:58 Ricciardo hits the front on a 1:24.8 on the supersoft tyres and Bottas is the first driver to head out on the ultrasoft Pirellis.
12:57 Vandoorne ups his pace but is still five seconds down. Ocon goes P19.
12:55 A first timed lap for Vandoorne and it is six seconds off the pace!
12:53 Ocon is in the action as well as he leaves the pits in his pink Force India.
12:52 Supersofts for Stroll and he is up to ninth place. And Vandoorne is out on track which is good news for McLaren-Honda.
12:51 Problems over at Ferrari as Vettel is out of the car with reports claiming it is a DRS issue.
12:49 Stroll and Verstappen break the silence as they head out.
12:43 Times on the board for all the drivers excluding Vandoorne, water pressure loss, and Ocon, brakes.
12:40 The drivers are back in the pits to hand their first set of tyres back to Pirelli. A rundown of the top ten: Bottas, Ricciardo and Hamilton (all on supersoft tyres), Raikkonen (soft), Perez (supersofts) Massa, Sainz and Grosjean (all on the soft tyres) and Hulkenberg and Kvyat (both on the supersofts).
12:37 Ricciardo improves to second place and heads back to the pits. His team-mate, Verstappen, is reporting an issue with his gears. "I keep losing synch of the gears," he said.
12:36 P1 for Bottas with a 1:25.1. That puts him 0.373s up on Hamilton.
12:35 Vandoorne is in the pits. His McLaren-Honda is up on jacks. That could be a familiar picture this season for the Belgian racer. It is reportedly a water pressure loss.
12:34 Hulkenberg crosses the line in the Renault with a 1:27.5. That puts him P8.
12:33 Alonso is P10, 2.5s off the pace, and newbie Stroll is P11. Still waiting for times from Vandoorne, Hulkenberg, Verstappen and Ocon.
12:32 New benchmark time is a 1:25.5 for Hamilton with Bottas second, 0.7s down. Perez, Ricciardo, Raikkonen and Massa are the top six.
12:30 Ricciardo puts his lawn moving skills to use as he cuts the corner... and the grass.
12:29 Hamilton gets it a bit wrong into Turn 11, carrying too much speed, which compromises him through Turn 12 and he is forced to back right off.
12:26 A 1:26.4 for Hamilton! Yip, Formula 1 has upped the pace ladies and gents, it really has.
12:25 Stroll down to a 1:30.7 and Ricciardo slashes that with a 1:28.2.
12:23 The action is heating up as the Toro Rosso drivers, Massa, Wehrlein, Ericsson, Alonso, Perez, Ricciardo and the Mercedes drivers head out.
12:22 1:33.3 is the first timed lap of 2017 and it is from Stroll.
12:20 And with that Williams send out their rookie, Stroll. He is jumping from Formula 3 to Formula 1 and there are some concerns about it following his mistakes in testing.
12:19 "All about doing as fewer miles as possible" is Christian Horner's explanation as to why no one is running at the moment. The drivers only have four engines each this season.
12:16 It is a brake problem that has sidelined by Force India. His mechanics are working on the issue but it could take about 20 minutes to resolve.
12:14 Still waiting for the first lap time of the day, then again still waiting for the drivers to return to the circuit. Last year's FP1 P1 was a 1:29.725 set by Hamilton.
12:11 19 of the 20 drivers have ventured out, all expect Ocon is his pink-liveried Force India.
12:07 Hamilton is back in the pits, out of his car and it seems it is time for a race boot adjustment. It's not just the cars that get tweaked in F1!
12:05 Verstappen and Vandoorne both put in a second lap.
12:02 One by one the drivers head out for the first installation lap of this season. Grosjean is already back in the pits and out goes Hamilton in the W08.
12:00 The pit lane light is green and FP1 is underway with Grosjean the first driver out on track.
11:54 A rundown of the teams: Mercedes - Hamilton and Bottas; Red Bull - Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen; Ferrari - Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen; Force India - Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon; Williams - Felipe Massa and Stroll; McLaren - Alonso and Vandoorne; Toro Rosso - Carlos Sainz and Daniil Kvyat; Haas - Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen; Renault - Nico Hulkenberg and Jolyon Palmer; Sauber - Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Wehrlein.
11:52 And if you missed the huge news from the pre-season, Formula 1 is now under new ownership in Liberty Media who have installed Chase Carey as the CEO (bye bye Bernie), Sean Bratches as the head of business matters and Ross Brawn, yip THE Ross Brawn, is the new sporting boss.
11:47 Mercedes have a new line-up in Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, Williams have a rookie in Lance Stroll, McLaren have promoted Stoffel Vandoorne as Fernando Alonso's new team-mate and Honda are having issues, many many many vibrating issues. The Japanese manufacturer has confessed that they are "worried" ahead of the Aussie GP about the reliability of their unit.
11:43 The big question everyone is asking is who will be the ones to beat this season. Following pre-season testing it looks as if the early battle could be between last year's champions, Mercedes, and pre-season pace-setters, Ferrari. Red Bull, though, are expected to be there and thereabout after a "confusing" final test.
11:36 New rules have resulted in new cars for this year's championship. They are heavier, longer and wider with bigger tyres and wider wings. Shark fins are in play to direct air flow as are T-wings. All in all, the cars are faster and more aggressively looking... unfortunately it also looks as if they will be difficult beasts to overtake.
11:30 Welcome ladies and gents to the Albert Park street circuit for the opening practice session of the 2017 season. This is when the bull stops and we finally get an indication of what Formula 1's early season pecking order looks like.
