Formula One and the Australian Grand Prix Corporation announced on Tuesday that a 2019 season launch event will take place in downtown Melbourne on March 13 ahead of the start of the new season.

Formula One have promised that all of the 2019 grid and the ten team principals will be in attendance at the event which will be streamed live across all social media platforms.

The event will also see music acts perform and will be sponsored by Formula One’s main backers.

The timing of the announcement is a little suspicious however as it comes just hours after the sport was criticized by other circuit promoters for not doing enough for the fans.
