i would imagine back in the day there were back to back GP's in the same country due to the logistics of the time but surely this is something far more uncommon, even unique, in the modern era.
Au never had 2 GPs in same year.

GP transferred from Adelaide to Melbourne, but never held in both places in 1 year.

Calendar year, correct - yet the 95 and 96 grand prix were held in Nov 95 and Mar 96, so well within a 12 month period.

Unsurprising onboard number 1 - the Williams looked a bit of a handful.

Number 2 - Hamilton had a lively car, but kept forward motion.

Er, I'd suggest that was rather secondary to the shenanigans going on between Schumacher and Hill.

By winning the 94 Australian GP, Mansell became the last driver to win a GP in his 40s

I don't seem to have noticed this phrase before:

Christian Horner:
Quote:
But itís only really when everybody pulls their pants down tomorrow in qualifying that you see where weíre at.
Toto Wolff:
Quote:
Thatís why, pants down on Saturday, thatís the first real benchmarking this year.
So, qualifying in 30 minutes. Pants down and away we go.

Must be the latest in phrase, doing the rounds in the F1 paddock but why pants down?

Lewis and Mercedes start 2019, where they left off at the end of 2018, out in front with a Merdcedes front row shut out. Vettel is third followed by Verstappen and Leclerc in 5th. A superb 8th from Lando Norris. Got to feel sorry for Gasly getting caught out, when Kubica had his moment.

You have to admire Mercedes's performance. I wonder whether Ferrari have flattered to deceive in testing or if Melbourne is not representative of typical performance.

Bottas does look refreshed. I'm hoping he can take the challenge to Hamilton more over the season.

Excellent job by Lando Norris. Also kudos to Romain Grosjean for pulling his lap out. The midfield will be tightly packed this year and driver performance will come to the fore.

The track evolution in Q1 was interesting, but what an error by Red Bull (and a number of others) to not put one of their drivers out for a second lap. A reminder that you can have all the computing power in the world, but you need to think sensibly too, because Gasly really should have been out on track.

It looks rather like a carbon copy of last year doesn't it? I'm slightly worried about Red Bull, Horner said they used the Honda 'party mode' yet they're further off Mercedes than last year...

Reminds me of the time when Kravitz dived into a pit garage and told them it was raining and the guy watching the weather radar told him it wasn't!
