After being ruled out twice from the competition calendar on the pinnacle of motorsport, high commands of the Australian GP in Melbourne are convinced this 2022 there’s not going back for the event set to be held at the Circuit of Albert Park: “We’ve got a commitment from the Victorian Government, that the event’s going ahead.”

As a considerable amount of people are keeping an eye on Australia because of the Tennis Australian Open and the polemic with its participants, Australian Grand Prix Corporation boss Andrew Westacott spoke with Speedcafe.com about the event that will finally come back to the Formula 1 championship calendar.

“We’ve got a commitment from Formula 1 that they’re coming here for Round 3.”

“We’re selling tickets like hotcakes, and we’re 80 days away from the event.”

“So everything is happening, everything is getting ready, and [I] can’t wait to host the best drivers in the world, in new cars, on a new track.”

The organizer assured: “having said that, what I say is we’ll be anything but normal – we’re going to have all new cars on track, we’ve got new entertainment and music across the four days,” about the F1 round scheduled for April 8-10.

“There will be the need for everyone to be vigilant from a safety point of view and for attendees to be 100 percent vaxed, but we’re in a massive park, it’s predominantly outdoors, and we’ve been starved for major events."

“So we’re working with the government to make sure that everything we do allows us to have maximum crowds.”

Having dismissed the chance of the event being ruled out of the calendar one more time, Westacott spoke on the chance of holding a closed-door event: “I am not even contemplating that.”

“I think Australia has moved on from that, and I think Victoria has moved on from that.

“You look at the current rates of cases and so on, I think we’re beyond doing those sorts of things behind closed doors.

“There’s been no evidence of any event throughout the country where you’re having to do that without crowds."

“That’s not even on our radar, it’s not even been discussed, whereas last year, and the year before, that was often the norm. So that’s not even a consideration at the moment and I don’t think ever will be.”

“They always have the safeguard that, because we’re a government underwritten event, that, if God forbid, anything did happen, they get their money back,” Westacott confirmed and concluded.
