F1 boss ‘makes secret visit to Sydney’ as city’s plan to snatch Australian Grand Prix away from Melbourne goes up several notches

Formula One chief executive Stefano Domenicali reportedly made a secret visit to Sydney in the week of the Australian Grand Prix as part of the city’s efforts to snatch the race away from Melbourne. Should Sydney be successful, the article said the race could be run on a circuit that would snake through the city’s central business district, which features world famous landmarks such as the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Melbourne signed a new contract with Formula 1 in 2019, with the agreement stipulating that the race would be held there until at least 2025. The Victorian city famously snatched the GP away from Adelaide, and hosted the race for the first time in 1996. F1 cars would not be able to race on the Harbour Bridge itself due to safety concerns.
