Welcome to the first race day of the 2004 FIA Formula One World Championship, at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.

As has been the case all weekend it's cloudy with a noticeable south-westerly wind, but warm, with a current temperature of 13 degrees C, which is expected to rise to 21C as the day progresses.

The good news is that the chances of rain have receded, to no more than 10 percent, so the first race of the year should be a dry one at Albert Park.

Don’t forget that our exclusive official live timing feed now includes real-time weather updates to keep you constantly informed of the latest conditions at the circuit during the race and throughout every session of the Grand Prix weekend.

The Australian Grand Prix gets underway at 1400 local time, 0300 GMT.
