Ferrari were faster this year in pre-season testing and a strong start for them will test arch-rivals Mercedes. The driver, whose team will also score an extra point for the constructors' championship, must finish in the top 10.

"The Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix is an iconic event on the sporting calendar and we are pleased to showcase premium CHiQ televisions throughout the venue", added David Esler, General Manager - Sales & Marketing of Changhong Electric Australia.

"Judging from the performance in Barcelona (testing), it looks like we will have a proper fight on our hands in Melbourne".

The four-times champion will bid for a third successive win at Albert Park's season-opener, having foiled pole-sitter Hamilton amid a virtual safety auto deployment past year.

"I hope to enjoy the weekend and that everything will run smoothly without any big issues so I can concentrate on my driving and discover a new Formula 1", said Kubica. "Fun is to win a lot of races and then ultimately you are fighting for the championship", said the 31-year-old Vettel.

Ferrari have endured a torrid decade, having not won the drivers' championship since Kimi Raikkonen lifted the trophy in 2007, or the constructors' since 2008.

But Williams' expected early-season struggles appeared to be laid bare in Practice One as their two cars trailed over four seconds off the pace.

"Our optimism is not unfounded", said Red Bull motorsport consultant Helmut Marko.

The race also marks the unbelievable comeback of Poland's Robert Kubica, who eight years ago partially severed his right arm in an accident that many believed would never see him driving a auto again, let alone a Formula One machine.

"It'll be interesting to see how Red Bull's upgrade worked and I know Ferrari usually bring an upgrade to the first race so it will be interesting to see".

At a bumpy street circuit where overtaking has been hard, F1 bosses will hope the introduction of new rules can inject spice.

"The name of this year's auto, the SF90, is already a celebration of this anniversary and, on top of that (we have) made a decision to honour this achievement in an even more evident manner in Melbourne", Ferrari said in a statement.
