Australian GP: Follow the career of ‘Checo’ Pérez in F1 minute by minute LIVE

This Saturday night is Formula 1: The Australian Grand Prix arrives, the third date of the current season of Formula 1 that can give us many surprises, such as an epic comeback from Sergio ‘Checo’ Pérez.

The driver from Guadalajara will start this time in last place since during qualifying he had problems with his RB19: a Red flag prevented him from setting a fastest lap and he therefore retired.

Meanwhile, his Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen took the twenty-second pole position of his Formula 1 career, leading the starting grid.
