The Australian Grand Prix - Highlights

Duration: 2 hours

First broadcast: on BBC One HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Two Scotland

Jake Humphrey introduces highlights from the Australian Grand Prix, the curtain-raiser for the 2012 Formula 1 season. Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel led from start to finish in Melbourne last year and went on to dominate the title race, but the German is likely to face much stronger opposition this year as he bids for a third consecutive world crown.

His chief rivals are likely to include 2011 runner-up Jenson Button, and Lewis Hamilton, who is aiming to get back to form after an up-and-down campaign last year. Meanwhile, Ferrari are desperate to make amends for a poor 2011, when they won just one race - and will be hoping their new car will give Fernando Alonso the edge in what is sure to be another compelling Formula 1 season.
