Talks underway for Melbourne F1 night race

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali admits talks are underway about converting the Australian GP from a daytime race to one that is run under floodlights. Melbourne’s current Formula 1 contract runs all the way until 2035, but if organisers want the race to take place after dark then it will require the installation of floodlights. AGPC chairman Paul Little agrees that a Melbourne night race is possible, but installation of the floodlighting would cost a lot of money. “I’d love to not rule out a night grand prix,” he said. “I just think if we could make that work, it would be an amazing spectacle.”. “It’s a part of the discussion,” F1 CEO Domenicali said.
