Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what’s going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and where you can talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?

If you’re in the mood for some fast cars and likely domination by one team, you tuned in on the right weekend—Formula One is back. The Australian Grand Prix will kick off the season at Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit, but those of us in the U.S. will have to either set the DVRs or get ready for a couple of late nights.

Much of the attention is already on 2017 in F1, as teams continue to dream up ways to make the cars safer. Ferrari unveiled a “halo” concept to protect the cockpit at a preseason test in Spain—which Lewis Hamilton publicly bashed—and Red Bull just brought out a big, curved windshield for consideration.

NASCAR is still out on the western side of the U.S., with the Sprint Cup Series and Xfinity Series running at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. The western trip has been a good one, too—the Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway last weekend marked the series’ second photo finish of the year, with Kevin Harvick edging out Carl Edwards by .010 seconds at the line.

In addition to NASCAR and F1, the IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship will run for the first time since the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway and all of its insane finishes. The series will keep in Florida for their second race of the year, running 12 hours at Sebring International Raceway.

As the seasons pick up, there are plenty of live events this weekend—along with the above mentioned will be NHRA, MotoGP and Monster Energy Supercross. The MotoGP time schedules listed below are via Business Wire.
