A new era of Formula 1 gets underway today with the first practice session for the Australian Grand Prix. You can watch the session live on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra.

As per usual, Albert Park in Melbourne acts as the curtain raiser for the Formula 1 season, but with reliability being such a key concern for all of the teams at the opening round of the season, it could turn out to be a very interesting weekend.

Ahead of practice, Mercedes have been working on Lewis Hamilton’s car following an engine problem, whilst Red Bull are thought to have Sebastian Vettel’s RB10 in pieces, meaning that he may not get out until later on in the session.

For Williams, it is a very different story as both Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas are ready to go and start a brand new era for the team following a barren few years in Formula 1.

Coverage of FP1 begins at 9:30pm ET. CLICK HERE to watch it live on Live Extra.

    These cars sound like crap and most of them look like crap. I just hope they don’t race like crap.
