LONDON (Reuters) – Melbourne will host the Australian Grand Prix for the 25th time in 2020 with the season-opener for Formula One’s 70th season scheduled for March 15, the sport announced on Saturday.

“There can be no better place to start the 2020 season,” Formula One chairman Chase Carey said in a statement. Rolex will continue as the race’s title sponsor for the eighth year.

The rest of the calendar was yet to be published.
