Eddie Jordan rocks Melbourne
Our first full day in Melbourne today and having been into the city centre there is a real feeling that the anticipation is starting to build, with banners, cars, grid girls and entertainment stages seemingly filling every spare bit of ground.
It's been a busy one for us with lots of work to do, however, the highlight of the day was checking out Eddie Jordan's band The Robbers who entertained the masses in Federation Square before Mark Webber made an appearance on stage and the BMW Sauber boys fired up an engine for the crowd.
As promised I grabbed a few snaps as the day unfolded, I'm no David Bailey and couldn't take too many, but I hope you enjoy the pics I have got.
BBC Sport's Formula One editor Mark Wilkin, Lee McKenzie and Jonathan Legard arrive in Melbourne on Monday night, trust me Jonathan is happier to be here than he looks, maybe he wanted to be in the front!
Online and beavering away in my hotel room.
We discovered an Italian restaurant on the way to see Eddie and the boys. Here Ledgy is chatting to editor Mark Wilkin and assistant editor Steve Aldous.
EJ doing what he loves, bashing away on the drums and entertaining the crowd!
Is that Top Gear's James May moonlighting on the keyboard? Reports that The Stig provided backing vocals proved unfounded!
