FINISH That is that. Thank you for your company today and do join us again in a fortnight for the Bahrain Grand Prix.
FINISH Brilliant start for Ferrari in what was a fairly good race with the Haas double DNF proving to be the turning point in the race as it allowed Vettel to get ahead of Hamilton during the Safety Car period.
FINISH Here's your top 10: Vettel, Hamilton, Raikkonen, Ricciardo, Alonso, Verstappen, Hulkenberg, Bottas, Vandoorne, Sainz.
FINISH Great stuff for McLaren as they have a double points finish with Alonso P5 and Vandoorne P9. Verstappen was P6, Hulkenberg P7 and Bottas P8. Sainz claimed the final point.
FINISH Vettel wins the Australian Grand Prix for the second year in a row. Hamilton follows him home and Raikkonen takes the final podium spot ahead of Ricciardo.
Lap 58 Doesn't look like he is close enough, but let's see what happens.
Lap 58 It's the final lap of the Australian GP. Will Ricciardo manage to take P3. 'Okay this is the last lap, you may as well use the battery,' he is told.
Lap 57 Sainz is still holding onto P10. Raikkonen has caught up with Hamilton, but don't read too much into that.
Lap 56 Okay Ricciardo is now back in the game as well as he is almost back within DRS range of Raikkonen. Alonso is told that Verstappen will be coming for him on the final two laps.
Lap 55 Well maybe not, Verstappen has been told he will be able to push hard on the last two laps.
Lap 55 Okay, looks like this race is basically over as Ricciardo has also dropped off Raikkonen while Verstappen is no longer pushing hard on Alonso.
Lap 54 Looks like Hamilton has backed off as the Vettel's lead has dropped to more than two seconds off the pace.
Lap 53 Sainz has dropped off as he is not feeling well. Perez has caught up with the Renault man, who is P10.
Lap 52 Vettel responded with his best time on the previous lap and it looks like he is controlling things.
Lap 51 Another fastest lap of 1:26.444 from Hamilton. The gap to Vettel is now 1.4s.
Lap 50 Vettel's lead over Hamilton is back to 1.5s. Ricciardo has dropped to 1.2s off Raikkonen in third place.
Lap 49 There is a train behind Alonso as Verstappen, Hulkenberg and Bottas are following him closely.
Lap 49 Hamilton is told to get the temperature back under control, but he is also told that there is a backmarker ahead of Vettel so that could play into his hands.
Lap 48 Hamilton has dropped 2.8s off Vettel's lead.
Lap 47 Not a good way to start his big push as he locks a wheel at Turn 9 and runs across the grass. That could be that.
Lap 47 Hamilton: 'Can I push yet? Let me know what you want. I'm gonna go for it.'
Lap 46 Couple of purple sectors from Hamilton and the gap is down to 0.8s.
Lap 45 Toro Rosso have confirmed that Gasly retired due to a power unit problem.
Lap 44 Alonso is doing well to keep Verstappen at bay. Bottas has also joined this scrap.
Lap 44 Ricciardo is on Raikkonen's rear, but there is just no way past the Ferrari. The mistake that Red Bull predicted is just not happening.
Lap 43 McLaren are looking at a good haul of points here with Alonso P5 and Vandoorne in P9.
Lap 42 Another fastest lap from Hamilton after he was given an engine boost from the pits. He is still within one second of Vettel.
Lap 41 The top two are now lapping in the 1:26s. Still no way through for Ricciardo on Raikkonen.
Lap 40 Will we get a grandstand finish? Hamilton is now back within DRS range of Vettel.
Lap 39 Raikkonen and Ricciardo going wide at Turn 13. Ricciardo is told to 'keep it smooth, keep the pressure on as he will make mistakes'.
Lap 38 Bottas is now on the back of Hulkenberg, who is P7.
Lap 38 Hamilton is starting to drop off Vettel's pace now. Closest battle on the track is now between Raikkonen and Ricciardo.
Lap 37 Hamilton fighting with his car and he is still under a second off Vettel's pace.
Lap 36 Ricciardo can smell a podium here and he would be the first Australian classified in the top three at the Australian GP.
Lap 35 Verstappen is putting pressure on Alonso in P5 while Raikkonen can see the Red Bull of Ricciardo in his mirrors.
Lap 35 Vettel is upping the ante as he sets a new fastest lap of 1:27.559.
Lap 34 Hamilton is still within DRS range of Vettel while Raikkonen is another two seconds adrift.
Lap 34 The stewards will have a look at the Magnussen/Grosjean unsafe releases after the race.
Lap 33 Will we see the 'party mode' from Hamilton's Mercedes now? Remember Vettel's tyres are only a couple of laps old.
Lap 32 Verstappen has a look at Hulkenberg and he gets ahead. He's now behind Alonso in P5.
Lap 32 We are racing again at Melbourne Park and Vettel leads them down the home straight.
Lap 31 The Safety Car is coming in at the end of this lap.
Lap 31 It's Vettel from Hamilton, Raikkonen, Ricciardo, Alonso, Verstappen, Hulkenberg, Vandoorne, Bottas, Sainz.
Lap 31 Verstappen is trying to give the place back to Alonso after he overtook under yellow flags. He's waving Alonso passed, but the McLaren driver takes forever to take the hint.
Lap 30 The Safety Car is still out there, but we will get racing again soon.
Lap 30 The big winners from this VSC are Vettel, who has jumped Hamilton, and both Red Bulls who are P4 and P5.
Lap 30 Disappointment on the faces of all the Haas mechanics.
Lap 29 We have had five retirements: Sirotkin, Ericsson, Gasly, Magnussen and Grosjean.
Lap 29 We now have a proper Safety Car on the track.
Lap 29 'What just happened guys' asks Hamilton as he is now stuck behind Vettel. 'Was it my mistake?'
Lap 29 Grosjean had to retire as his wheel was also not fitted properly after his pit stop.
Lap 28 Ricciardo has also pitted and he rejoins in P4. A big win for him.
Lap 28 If you are wondering how Vettel managed to come out ahead of Hamilton? The drivers on the track have to adhere to the Virtual Safety Car while it's normal rules in the pit lane.
Lap 28 Vettel pits from the lead and he rejoins ahead of Hamilton. Drama!
Lap 28 Ricciardo asks 'does this screw us over?' The reply is 'no this is good'.
Lap 27 We have a Virtual Safety Car. Bottas makes use of the Safety Car as he pits.
Lap 26 Grosjean has his head in his hands. Disappointment on the Haas pit wall as well.
Lap 26 Oh dear and now Grosjean has also stopped.
Lap 25 Grosjean and Hulkenberg have stopped and they come out behind Verstappen.
Lap 25 The track has been cleared and we are racing flat out in all sectors once again.
Lap 25 That is rotten luck for Haas. Vettel is still in the lead.
Lap 24 Yellow flags in section one as Magnussen is parked off the track. The left-rear wheel was not fitted properly and the mechanic immediately owned up to the mistake.
Lap 24 Magnussen is going slowly around the track. Looks like one of the wheels are not fitted properly. Big disappointment in the Haas garage as he was going well.
Lap 23 Sainz pits after that off-track incident. Magnussen has also pitted and he takes on the supersofts.
Lap 23 Alonso is up to P9 as Sainz goes off the track. Nothing serious as he rejoins behind his Spanish compatriot.
Lap 23 Bottas has a go on the outside of Perez and initially it looks like he would get his nose in front, but the Force India driver shuts the door. So as you were.
Lap 22 Verstappen stops and he rejoins in P14.
Lap 22 Ricciardo is told that the two cars ahead of him (Magnussen and Grosjean) are starting to struggle. He replies 'if there's an opportunity, I'll take it'.
Lap 22 Bottas still not making progress as he has dropped to more than one-second off Perez's pace.
Lap 21 Hamilton is looking quite comfortable at the moment as he has a five-second lead over Raikkonen.
Lap 21 Vettel is 12s clear of Hamilton, but he is due to stop any moment now.
Lap 20 Still no way through for Ricciardo on Grosjean.
Lap 20 Out come the Merc pit crew and into the pit lane goes race leader Hamilton. He also puts on the soft tyres. He was stationary for 3.0s and he rejoins ahead of Raikkonen.
Lap 19 Hamilton is told to 'box, box', which put Vettel P1.
Lap 19 Raikkonen puts on the yellow soft tyres and he rejoins in third place, just ahead of the battle for fourth place between Magnussen, Grosjean and Ricciardo.
Lap 19 Raikkonen is the first to blink of the front-runners as he pits from second place.
Lap 19 The second Mercedes of Bottas is still down in P13, stuck behind the Force India of Perez.
Lap 18 Hamilton has also been given the hurry-up as the Ferraris have clearly upped the ante. His lead is still over three seconds.
Lap 18 Lock up from Ricciardo as he pushes hard to get closer to Grosjean in P5.
Lap 17 Verstappen is struggling as he tells the team 'I think there is something wrong as I'm really struggling with oversteer'.
Lap 17 The battle for P4 is heating up as Grosjean and Ricciardo are putting pressure on Magnussen.
Lap 16 Raikkonen is told 'you need to push as fast as you can'. He is 2.9s off Hamilton's pace at the front.
Lap 16 Gasly doesn't know what's happening and is told to box. Several puffs came from the back of that Toro Rosso before it slowed down.
Lap 16 We have a Toro Rosso going slowly around the track. It's Gasly and there is some smoke coming from the rear.
Lap 15 The top three are in a race of their own at the moment as they are separated by just five seconds. The fourth-placed Magnussen is 14s seconds adrift of Vettel in third place.
Lap 14 Bottas is within DRS range of Perez in P12.
Lap 14 Alonso is given the hurry-up by McLaren as they believe he can take Verstappen. The McLaren man is P10, just behind Sainz, who is two seconds adrift of Verstappen.
Lap 13 Ricciardo is within one second of Grosjean, but not close enough yet for a move.
Lap 13 The Ferraris are flying as Raikkonen now sets a fastest lap 1:28.485. Hamilton's lead over Raikkonen is 2.4s.
Lap 12 Vettel is the fastest man on track with a lap of 1:28.665. He is four seconds off Hamilton's lead.
Lap 12 Verstappen is told to 'make sure that you settle and look after your rear tyres'.
Lap 12 Ferrari will be loving this as both Haas cars are now in front of the Red Bulls.
Lap 11 Verstappen is down in P8 now and his team-mate Ricciardo is P6.
Lap 11 Verstappen loses it and slides across the track and onto the gravel. He manages to get his car back on track, but loses places to Grosjean, Ricciardo and Hulkenberg.
Lap 10 Verstappen is told to 'save is one overtake for the place where he is most comfortable'. Bottas is finally up to P13 as he moves on the inside of Ocon.
Lap 10 Hamilton's lead at the front is 2.5s, but it looks like both the Merc driver and Raikkonen in second place are looking after their tyres.
Lap 9 Bottas is still struggling in P14 and he is not getting any change out of Esteban Ocon.
Lap 9 Ericsson's car has been rolled back into the Sauber garage.
Lap 8 Verstappen reports that his tyres are 'running very hot'.
Lap 8 Ericsson is into the pits and it's not just for tyres as they are having a good look at that car. Looks like this might be a second retirement as Ericsson has lost his power steering.
Lap 7 We have double yellow flags for that Sirotkin incident, but the race continues.
Lap 6 We have a retirement and it's Sergey Sirotkin. It looks like he has pulled off the track, possibly at Turn 13.
Lap 6 'Nice job mate, nice job' is the word from the Red Bull pit wall after that Ricciardo move.
Lap 5 Ricciardo is behind Hulkenberg and he uses DRS to go on the inside and move up to seventh.
Lap 4 DRS has been enabled and Verstappen is starting to get a little edgy behind Magnussen, but he's not close enough to make a move.
Lap 4 Hamilton's lead over Raikkonen is not getting bigger as it's roughly one second. while Vettel is another second adrift.
Lap 4 Magnussen's jump on Verstappen is playing right into the hands of Ferrari. Good team work.
Lap 3 Here's your top 10: Hamilton, Raikkonen, Vettel, Magnussen, Verstappen, Grosjean, Hulkenberg, Ricciardo, Sainz and Alonso.
Lap 3 Early stop from Hartley and he has changed to the soft tyres.
Lap 2 Alonso tries to go around Sainz, but he just can't pull it off. They are scrapping over P9. Bottas is still P15.
Lap 1 It's Hamilton from Raikkonen, Vettel, Magnussen, Verstappen, Grosjean and Hulkenberg.
Lap 1 Raikkonen has a look at Hamilton at Turn 3, but no way through. They all got away cleanly.
Lap 1 The lights go out and the 2018 F1 season is underway. Good start from Hamilton and Raikkone comes across and cuts off Vettel. Magnussen is ahead of Verstappen.
16:11 Still struggling to get used to Halo, but we guess we better get used to it.
16:10 The formation lap is underway as Hamilton leads the pack around Melbourne Park. They all got away without problems. Hamilton holding back as he's going pretty fast.
16:08 We have to admit that this 10 past the hour start is not going down well with us, but we probably have to give it some time.
16:03 Okay the anthem is done, the flyovers are done, the grid walks are done. All other things are done so it's nearly time to go racing.
15:59 If you were hoping for rain today, then the news is not good, I'm afraid as there is only a 20% chance of showers during the race.
15:55 The fans rise as they prepare for the Australian national anthem, Advance Australia Fair.
15:54 And another interesting thing, not a stat though as Niki Lauda feels the best that Bottas can do is sixth, seventh, but he believes Hamilton is in very good form.
15:53 Interesting stat. Only two drivers have won from pole in the last eight races at Melbourne Park.
15:50 The pit lane is now closed.
15:43 Some things never change as Raikkonen's already had a moan about a McLaren.
15:40 Are you ready? The cars are being fired up and the pit lane is now open.
15:35 Here's your weather update: 23 degrees Celsius air temperature, 39 degrees track temperature, 38 percent humidity.
15:30 In case you didn't know, the pit lane hasn't opened yet as we are only start at 10 past the hour. So the pit lane will only open at 15:40 with the race getting underway at 16:10. Yeah, we are also still struggling to get used to this.
15:28 There's some good news coming from the paddock as there has already been a proposal in the Ferrari garage with two Ferrari fans getting engaged.
15:25 If you were wondering about the rookies on the grid, we've already mentioned that Williams new boy Sirotkin will start on the final row. Sauber's Charles Leclerc starts P18 while Brendon Hartley, who is in his first full season, is P16.
15:20 So then, can Ferrari stop Hamilton from starting the defence of his F1 title with victory in Melbourne? Vettel and Raikkonen certainly seem to think so.
15:16 Back to Bottas and Mercedes have had to change the battery and control electronics to his car following his crash in qualy, which means a five-place grid penalty.
15:13 Sergey Sirotkin and Pierre Gasly are the final two drivers on the grid.
15:10 If you were wondering where Valtteri Bottas is, then you will have to scroll to P15 as the Mercedes man crashed during his flying lap in Q3.
15:08 Haas were the surprise package as Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean occupy the fourth row of the grid with Nico Hulkenberg and the peeved off Daniel Ricciardo next. Carlo Sainz and Fernando Alonso complete the top 10.
15:07 Here you go, it was a record-setting pole lap from Lewis Hamilton as he posted a 1:21.164, which was 0.664s better than that of Sebastian Vettel. The top two are followed by Kimi Raikkonen and Max Verstappen.
15:04 If you missed yesterday's qualifying, we'll give you an update. However, be warned, the usual suspects were at the top of timesheets with one or two changes.
15:02 The off-season was a long one, wasn't it, but now we are back and ready to go racing again. Let's hope it's an exciting season with today's race in Melbourne a blockbuster.
15:00 Greetings and welcome to our live coverage of the Australian Grand Prix, which marks race one of the 2018 Formula 1 Championship.
18:15 Thanks for following our live coverage. Make sure to join us for the race tomorrow!
18:14 Magnussen, Grosjean, Hulkenberg and Sainz complete the rest of those who will start in the top 10, with Bottas set to fall all the way to the back of the grid after his hefty crash.
18:13 Verstappen made a mistake at T13 and settles for P4. Ricciardo is P5, but will drop three places for his red-flag violation yesterday.
18:12 Vettel improves but it's only good enough for P3! Raikkonen splits him and Hamilton in P2.
18:11 He crosses the line and it's a 1:21.164! An all-time lap record!
18:10 And now a purple middle sector!
18:09 He finds half a second in the first sector!
18:08 Here we go... Hamilton starting his final lap first...
18:04 Barely anything between the top three. Hamilton, Vettel and Verstappen separated by just 0.061s ahead of the final hot laps! Five minutes left in the session.
18:01 A mad dash to get out with Hamilton and the Red Bull drivers leading the way. And here comes Raikkonen.
18:00 It is green and we are go...
17:58 The session will restart on the hour.
17:55 Bottas' mechanics are going to have a long night ahead repairing that car. Bottas has arrived at the medical centre which is standard procedure.
17:52 He is out the car and the marshals are already doing a clean up job. He hit that wall hard and likely has a broken gearbox after that.
17:51 Bottas is in the wall! Red flag and Bottas is out of qualifying having slammed into the wall. He ran wide in 1, lost the back end of his W09 and hit the wall hard.
17:49 Brand new ultras as Hamilton and Bottas head out followed by Vettel and Raikkonen. Verstappen, Ricciardo and Sainz are the next out.
17:48 The light goes green and Q3 is underway. This session is just 12 minutes. Can Ferrari surprise after Vettel's Q2 P1 time?
17:45 Otherwise we have Hamilton, Bottas, Vettel, Raikkonen, Ricciardo and Verstappen, who made it through on supersoft tyres, Grosjean and both Renaults, Hulkenberg and Sainz.
17:44 Are you ready for this? The first pole position shoot-out of 2018 - and for the first time since Brazil in 2014 Kevin Magnussen is in Q3.
17:42 Vettel goes P1 with a 1:22.645! Out are: Alonso, Vandoorne, Perez, Stroll and Ocon.
17:41 Bottas goes second, Grosjean is up to eighth, Hulkenberg ninth, Vandoorne misses out on Q3 in 12th place, Sainz jumps to seventh and Alonso is down in 11th and here comes Ocon, he stays 15th.
17:40 The chequered flag is out...
17:38 New ultras across the board as the drivers head out to secure their place in Q2, well new ultras for everyone but the Red Bull drivers who are sticking with the red marked supersofts.
17:36 Hulkenberg has an off his hot lap so he's still to get a time. He returns to the pits for new tyres.
17:33 Alonso, Sainz, Magnussen and Vandoorne are inside the top ten with Stroll, Grosjean, Perez, Hulkenberg and Ocon in the drop zone. The latter two have yet to set times.
17:32 Verstappen and Ricciardo was fifth and sixth on the supersoft tyres, both over seven tenths down on Hamilton's P1 time.
17:31 A 1:22.5 for Raikkonen but that it beaten by Hamilton by half a second. Vettel is third and Bottas fourth.
17:28 Ricciardo is also on the supersofts, everyone else is on the ultras including Hamilton and Bottas.
17:27 Verstappen is the first driver out and opts for the supersoft tyres, not the ultras. Split strategy from Red Bull? The Ferraris leave the pits on the ultras.
17:25 Green light and Q2's 15 minutes begin but none of the drivers are rushing out.
17:24 Track temperature has fallen to 30'C since the start of Q1 and there are move clouds overhead but still no rain.
17:22 Just 15 drivers remain...
17:19 So out are: Hartley, Ericsson, Leclerc, Stroll and Gasly.
17:18 Chequered flag and Stroll moves to 12th, Sirotkin stays P17, Sainz is P6, Vandoorne 11th, Hartley moves to 16th and here comes Leclerc and Ericsson. They are P17 and P17 so Leclerc drops to 18th.
17:16 Alonso on down slap on a new set of ultras and head back out for a final hot lap or two.
17:15 P6 for Grosjean, who has a big slide. He is ahead of Bottas! Magnussen is eighth ahead of Alonso and Ocon.
17:14 Hamilton is P1, 1:22.8. He is the first to drop below the 1:23 mark. Raikkonen is second and Vettel third.
17:12 Drop zone: Gasly, Stroll, Hartley, Ericsson and Leclerc. Leclerc moves up to 18th place but is still in the drop zone. Make that P19 as Ericsson has shot up to 12th place.
17:09 Hamilton puts in another hot lap but it is 0.167s down on Raikkonen's P1 time. As for Alonso, the double World Champion is up to seventh.
17:08 Bottas up to second, Ricciardo showing good pace on his hot lap, and Verstappen starts his. Ricciardo up to second, 0.4s down on Raikkonen. Verstappen into third.
17:06 Hamilton takes avoiding action around a Force India and the Toro Rosso of Hartley. He goes second.
17:05 Vettel out on track can only mean one thing - traffic. "The Williams should have moved," he says of Lance Stroll as Raikkonen goes quickest, Vettel second.
17:04 The big boys have come out to play with Hamilton, Vettel and Raikkonen taking to the circuit with the ultrasoft tyres. And we have a 1:25.3 for Hulkenberg.
17:02 One by one the drivers head out for this 18 minute session. Remember, the slowest five drop out at the end of Q1.
17:00 And we are off... Nico Hulkenberg is the first driver out on track immediately followed by Ericsson and Charles Leclerc.
16:55 Five minutes to the start...
16:44 Sebastian Vettel was quickest in final practice but was one of only a handful of drivers to put in a slick tyre run. To put it into perspective, Marcus Ericsson was P3.
16:41 In fact the only driver we know for certain who won't be on a pole is Daniel Ricciardo. The Aussie has a three-place grid penalty for not slowing sufficiently for the red flag in Friday's second practice.
16:35 Having set the pace in the dry on Friday, Lewis Hamilton is the firm favourite to take pole position today while Mercedes will be chasing the 1-2 given that Valtteri Bottas also showed pace. But with Red Bull and Ferrari not far behind, we could yet get a surprise.
16:30 Hello and welcome back to Albert Park for the first qualifying session of the 2018 Formula 1 season. The good news is the heavy rain from this morning has passed by, however, there is a 40 percent chance of light showers during the qualifying hour.
15:02 That's it for FP3 with Vettel quickest but that, even Ferrari would agree, had more to do with the conditions than the SF70H's pace. Join us in two hours for qualifying. Cheers.
15:00 Chequered flag it out so this is one lap to "win" the session. Vettel goes top, a 1:26.0, Raikkonen is second and Ericsson third!
14:59 Now Verstappen goes P1 with a 1:31.6 on ultras but could yet lose out to the slick chaps...
14:57 Sainz on used inters does a 1:33.172 to go quickest of all in FP3! And now we have a slick run with Vettel out on track on a set of ultras. Bottas, Gasly, Hartley, Ericsson and others follow him out.
14:56 Not a whole lot of running at the moment as the drivers are saving their fresh inters for qualifying where there is a 40 percent chance of light rain.
14:53 Still no takes on the slick tyres as Bottas returns to the track on used inters.
14:50 Vandoorne has moved up to third place as he laps on his 11th lap on his set of inters. Sirotkin and Stroll are the only two other drivers out track but wait here comes Alonso, still on inters.
14:48 Mercedes are dominating the sector times with Hamilton quickest in sector 1 and Bottas the fastest man through two and three.
14:46 Stroll is up to 14th place as he finally puts in a timed lap with his new gearbox. We are still waiting for slick tyre runs but they can't be too far off given the improved track conditions.
14:38 Neither Ocon nor Perez have set times although it is believed to be more a case of waiting for the best conditions rather than problems with the cars.
14:37 Bottas goes quickest with a 1:34.1 with Hamilton up to second on his first hot lap, he is 0.051s down on his Mercedes team-mate.
14:33 P1 for Alonso! Now there's something that hasn't been said much in the past few years. The Spaniard does a 1:34.2 to lead the way.
14:32 Hamilton is finally out on track while McLaren are showing good pace. Alonso is up to third and Vandoorne slides into fourth.
14:29 Verstappen continues to lead the way ahead of Ricciardo while the Ferraris are up to third and fourth with Vettel ahead of Raikkonen. It is now so dry out on track that race control has enabled the DRS.
14:26 More times coming through as the drivers leave the pits. A 1:35 for Verstappen, Ricciardo is up to second followed by Alonso, Hulkenberg and Vettel. And only Hamilton and Stroll have yet to put in a lap.
14:22 New P1 as Verstappen does a 1:37.4 with Ricciardo two seconds down. News from McLaren is that they are running a revised Halo on Alonso's car with today's design featuring a different fairing. Alonso goes second.
14:20 A bit more action as Vandoorne, Hartley and Verstappen all hit the track along with Ricciardo and Sainz. All the drivers on the inters as the rain has abated. Hulkenberg is down to a 1:39.0 and Vandoorne slides into second.
14:17 Hulkenberg is back on track having swapped the full wets he used for his installation lap for a set of intermediate tyres. A 1:40.8 is the first time of the day.
14:13 And that was the total sum of the early FP3 action. Hamilton, Verstappen, Vettel and Ricciardo are four of the six drivers yet to venture out.
14:08 While everyone else has opted for full wets a brave Alonso leaves the pits on a set of intermediate Pirellis. Kevin Magnussen, Carlos Sainz, Marcus Ericsson and now Raikkonen head out.
14:06 Asked for an assessment of the track conditions, Stoffel Vandoorne replies "breezy" as he puts in his installation lap. Grosjean, Bottas, Brendon Hartley and Pierre Gasly have all been out, and now here comes Esteban Ocon in his Force India Force India. Yip, the team won't be changing their name this season after the shareholders failed to reach an agreement.
14:02 Engines fired up as Nico Hulkenberg leaves the pits in his Renault, practicing a start at the end of the pit lane. One driver who won't be heading out for an early installation lap is Lance Stroll. His Williams FW41 is in pieces as the team found a gearbox issue late this morning.
14:00 Green light and FP3 is underway in Australia...
13:51 The earlier heavy rain has lessened to a drizzle but it is still very wet out there for the drivers. Unfortunately the rain means we could have a very quiet first half to final practice as everyone waits for everyone else to sweep the water away. Track workers have already been out doing their best to clear standing water with brooms.
13:43 As for Grosjean, he feels Haas are in "no man's land"... not on the pace of the top three teams but comfortably ahead of the rest of the midfield. Haas caught the attention of their rivals on Friday with Fernando Alonso, Carlos Sainz and Ricciardo all saying how impressed they were with the "Ferrari replica of last year."
13:37 Although Friday's practices belonged to Lewis Hamilton, the only man to dip into the 1:23s in FP2, the rain means the timesheets may look a bit different today, or maybe even a lot. Hamilton set the pace on Friday ahead of Max Verstappen, Valtteri Bottas, Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel, Romain Grosjean and Daniel Ricciardo. Speaking of which, the Aussie has a three-place grid penalty for failing to slow sufficiently for the red flag in FP2. He's not impressed.
13:30 Good morning, afternoon, or evening wherever you are in the world from a wet, wet, wet Albert Park circuit. The rain came down at 10 this morning and hasn't stopped, causing a bit of chaos in some of the support races. Will there be more of that as F1 takes to the track? We'll find out shortly.
17:30 The chequered flag is out on FP2 which once again ends with Hamilton on top of the timesheets. Verstappen is second, 0.127s down, while Bottas is third. And that's it for today. Join us bright and early on Saturday for final practice and qualifying on what could a wet day in Melbourne. Cheers.
17:28 Sirotkin has a minor grass moment but nothing to serious while life is getting a little hot for Gasly.
17:26 Pit stop practice for Magnussen and now Vandoorne as the clock counts down on FP2.
17:22 A moment between Raikkonen and Magnussen sees the Ferrari driver nip ahead of the Haas.
17:21 A busy end to the session as all 20 drivers are out on track and laying down the laps. None, however, are improving their lap times as this is all about race pace.
17:17 Grosjean in sixth through to Sirotkin in P18 are separated by 1.4s once again showing that F1 could be in for a thrilling midfield battle.
17:13 Ericsson is 2.883s off the pace, Leclerc is 2.884s down.
17:12 Having lost the best of his rubber, Ricciardo is back on track but stays seventh behind Grosjean.
17:08 As things stand right now, Hamilton is fastest in the first sector, Raikkonen in the second and Verstappen is purple in the third.
17:07 Bottas is determined to test the track limits in this session as now, without any prompting from Raikkonen, he cuts the grass.
17:04 Ricciardo's no show is reportedly due to a front suspension change.
17:03 Alonso, who is still holding down eighth place, returns to the track on used ultras. He is onto lap number 13. Vandoorne has done 17.
17:02 Ricciardo has yet to venture out following the red flag which saw him ultrasoft tyre run aborted.
17:00 Sirotkin, Ericsson and Leclerc are pegged at the bottom of the timesheets, all three two seconds plus off the pace.
16:58 A good lap from Magnussen moves him up to ninth place ahead of Vandoorne. He is, however, six tenths down on his Haas team-mate, Grosjean.
16:55 Bottas and Raikkonen are both back out on track but using old ultras while Vandoorne jumps up to ninth place on a new set.
16:52 Green...
16:51 The session will restart in a minute.
16:49 So Ricciardo and Stroll were both caught out by that red flag but it is understandable that the red was thrown given the danger from that wire. It also explains why the timesheets have had a few issues this session.
16:48 There is a timing wire on the start line that has come loose and it wouldn't be good for any car to go over that as it could puncture a tyre.
16:47 Remember in pre-season when Toto Wolff said watch those Haas cars? Well watch those Haas cars! Grosjean has just shot up to sixth place ahead of Ricciardo. The Aussie, though, was on a purple tyre run when red flag, red flag was thrown.
16:44 Renault are also on the move as Hulkenberg climbs to seventh place and Sainz eighth, no seventh, no eighth as Alonso is now seventh, Sainz eighth, Hulkenberg ninth and Hartley is holding down 10th place for Toro Rosso.
16:43 He moves up to second place with a fastest final sector time. He is 0.127s down on Hamilton's P1 time.
16:42 Verstappen is the latest of the big boys to put on the purple Pirellis. He is currently P4 on the soft tyres, splitting the two Ferrari drivers.
16:37 Magnussen is out of his Haas as his team make a suspension change while Grosjean's car is undergoing some quick carbon repairs. Bring on the super glue.
16:36 But Hamilton is back on top with a 1:23.931. Bottas is second, 0.228s down on his team-mate.
16:35 A 1:24.2 which puts him P1 by 0.171s over Hamilton.
16:35 Now it is Raikkonen's turn to try the ultras...A 1:24.2 which puts him P1 by 0.171s over Hamilton.
16:31 P3 for Vettel. He did personal bests in all three sectors but never once went purple.
16:28 Vettel, Perez and Ocon are the only three out on track lapping. Ocon has moved away from the bottom of the timesheets leaving the Sauber duo dangling.
16:25 Sauber's struggles continue with Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc slowest of all barring the gravel-eating Ocon.
16:23 Perez is the only driver yet to set a time but he is out on track and he goes P15 on his first hot lap.
16:22 Esteban Ocon has also visited the Turn 3 gravel trap.
16:18 Now Hamilton reports that visibility isn't great as the drivers have to contend with the sun starting to go down. It is still light outside, it is just the positioning of the sun.
16:17 Verstappen is up to second place on the soft tyres as the Red Bull driver does a 1:24.7.
16:14 Both Alonso and Vandoorne are up and running. Alonso isn't happy and says other drivers aren't looking in their mirrors.
16:13 Bottas is in the dirt at Turn 3 with Mercedes telling them that Raikkonen is to blame as he "pushed" him off.
16:11 And we have a Mercedes 1-2. A supersoft run for Hamilton sees him cross the line with a 1:24.5 while Bottas goes second. Raikkonen is P3 for Ferrari.
16:08 Vettel on the softs hits the front with a 1:26.1. There are some concerns that the Ferrari is understeering through the corners compared to Vettel's rivals.
16:07 A 1:27.4 for Magnussen kicks off the timesheets.
16:04 Not exactly a mad dash to get out on track. In fact no one is out yet. Oh wait, there goes Kevin Magnussen. He's joined by Vettel and Grosjean.
16:00 A hot session ahead as the lights go green. McLaren tweeted a weather update: "It’s going to be a scorcher, with air temperatures reaching nearly 30°C"
15:55 Five minutes to the start of FP2...
15:50 And now there are a few issues over at Red Bull as Max Verstappen's floor/bargeboards have taken a beaten. His mechanics are working furiously to repair the damage with what looks like a glue gun.
15:41 There was a bit of drama over at McLaren as Fernando Alonso's MCL33 had an exhaust issue. Once that was solved, it also had pace with the Spaniard P8 while Stoffel Vandoorne was 10th fastest.
15:37 Mercedes hold the early advantage after Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas secured the 1-2 in FP1. However, Red Bull and Ferrari weren't far behind - and they were running slower tyres. But it is the midfield where the action really lies as seventh placed Romain Grosjean to 16th placed Sergio Perez were separated by a second!
15:30 Welcome back to the Albert Park circuit for the second of Friday's two 90-minute practice sessions.
13:31 That's it for now, just us in two hours for FP2. Cheers.
13:30 The chequered flag is out on FP1 which ends with Hamilton quickest ahead of Bottas, Verstappen, Raikkonen, Vettel, Ricciardo, Grosjean, Alonso, Sainz and Vandoorne.
13:28 Raikkonen is back out on track for the final few minutes of FP1.
13:25 Lap number 10 for Vandoorne and he improves to 12th place.
13:24 There is a Ferrari wall around Raikkonen's car with a few mechanics on the ground drilling the floor. Loose floor?
13:23 Hamilton, Bottas and Verstappen are all back out on track but running old tyres so it looks as if the top three will stay as it through to the chequered flag.
13:19 Alonso is up to eighth and Vandoorne is out on track. A good moment for McLaren.
13:16 Eight laps in and Alonso jumps up to ninth place on the supersoft tyres. He is 2.2s down on Hamilton. Vandoorne, who has done just five laps, is stuck on the bottom of the timesheets.
13:12 Vettel on the supersoft tyres has leapfrogged Raikkonen on the softs only for the Finn to fight back and jump to fourth place. His 1:24.8 putting him 0.8s down on Hamilton's ultra run.
13:11 Alonso clocks his first time and it is a 1:26.6, good enough for 14th place.
13:08 A good lap from Sirotkin and the rookie takes P10 off Stroll.
13:07 Alonso's very weird blacked out windshield is removed, tyres warmers are off and the Spaniard leaves the pits for lap number 3 on his tally.
13:04 Carlos Sainz is currently holding down best of the rest ahead of Grosjean, Pierre Gasly and Stroll. Esteban Ocon and Hulkenberg are P11 and 12 respectively.
13:00 New ultras, new hot lap for Hamilton who does a 1:24.147. He was quickest in the first and third sectors.
12:59 Still no sign of Alonso but Vandoorne is out and onto his fourth lap of the day.
12:56 Bottas is up to second on his new set of ultrasoft tyres. He is 0.046s slower than Hamilton. Verstappen joins the action.
12:54 The silence is broken as Bottas and Stroll head out followed by Ericsson and Leclerc.
12:46 The good news is Alonso is putting his helmet back on as it looks as if the team is close to fixing the problem.
12:43 Problems for McLaren as Alonso is out of the car with reports claiming there is an exhaust issue.
12:40 The drivers are back in the pits, swapping out their first set of Pirellis for new tyres. Sirotkin had a moment as he entered the pits, whacking the wall as he came in a bit hot.
12:36 Hamilton is flying on the ultras as he does a new fastest first sector but loses out in the second. He goes quickest with a 1:24.9. Ferrari's Raikkonen and Vettel are fourth and fifth but they are on the soft tyres to the top three's ultras.
12:30 Verstappen is back on top ahead of Ricciardo with a 1:24.9 and a 1:25.4.
12:29 Hamilton is out on track but encounters traffic on his hot lap and has to back off. He is on the ultrasoft tyres and bam! goes quickest with a 1:25.
12:28 The timesheets are constantly changing with Max Verstappen, Ricciardo and Bottas now the top three. All are on the ultrasoft tyres.
12:24 Ricciardo hits the front with a 1:27 but is pipped by Raikkonen, who goes 0.6s faster.
12:21 And we have our first lap time, a 1:32.057 from Sirotkin. Vettel, Raikkonen, Ricciardo, Bottas, Sainz and Stroll join the action.
12:19 Sergey Sirotkin, Williams' rookie driver, breaks the silence.
12:16 First FP1 of the season but same old story as everyone waits for everyone else to clean up the track.
12:11 Nico Hulkenberg is back on track for his first proper run of the day, and the season. Will we get a timed lap out of the Renault driver? Nope, he pits.
12:06 Out comes Hamilton and he heads to the end of the pit lane - a rather tight pit lane that is - to practice a start before blasting onto the circuit.
12:04 Only Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas are yet to venture out of the pits. And as I say that the Finn heads out in his Halo-adorned W09.
12:01 Romain Grosjean, Marcus Ericsson and Fernando Alonso follow the German out. This is the time that the drivers put in installation laps, just one lap normally as they check that all the nuts and bolts are in place.
12:00 The 2018 season gets the green light Down Under with Vettel, the reigning Australian GP champ, the first car out on track.
11:55 Five minutes...
11:52 Today's practice session marks the first competitive outing for the controversial Halo. While the likes of Kevin Magnussen continue to voice their unhappiness, Charlie Whiting says fans needn't worry about being confused about which driver is in the car, after all the "cameras will be black for the first car and all yellow for the second car." Yip, that clears it up.
11:45 It's been a long time since the last race weekend, so just a reminder that both practice sessions today are 90 minutes long. FP1 will be from 1200 to 1330 local time and FP2 will follow at 1600 to 1730.
11:40 The weather is set fair for the first two practice sessions today, but the weekend itself looks very unsettled. Heavy rain showers could impact both qualifying and the race, with wind also set to become a factor come Sunday. There is potential for a really mixed-up grid if that forecast is true - just the way we like it.
11:35 All of our tenuous pre-season predictions will start to come to light in Melbourne. Ferrari were the team grabbing the headlines by obliterating track records at the Circuit de Catalunya in winter testing, but it was Mercedes and Red Bull who were really catching the eye. Who can draw first blood this weekend? FP1 will get underway at 1200 local time.
11:30 The wait is finally over! Hello and welcome to our live coverage from the season-opening Australian Grand Prix. We will be bringing you the latest updates from practice, qualifying and the all-important race itself throughout the entire 2018 season as Mercedes, Ferrari and quite possibly Red Bull battle it out at the very top of the grid.
