Before the Grand Prix became part of the World Championship circuit, drivers still raced courses at different venues throughout Australia. The race became permanent in 1985 and moved to Melbourne in 1996.

The qualifying round was held the day before the race itself and Sebastian Vettel, driving for Red Bull-Renault, won pole position with an impressive lap time of 1:23. Due to wet conditions during the remainder of the weekend, no driver during the race was able to beat this time.

Most to the sports surprise, however, Gulf Air sponsored the Bahrain Grand Prix and it became the first F1 race to take place in the region.

The Bahrain International Circuit, with its immense popularity, opened up the door for other Middle Eastern territories to begin plans of hosting their own races. The United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon are all vying to be the next countries to hold a Formula One circuit race within their borders.
