The Formula One race has been staged at Melbourne's Albert Park every year since 1996 - except for the past two, as the COVID outbreak in 2020 and quarantine and entry regulations imposed by the Victorian government in 2021 forced its cancellation. A report on Seven News last month claimed the NSW government was seriously considering a move for the event. The current grand prix contract expires in 2025.

Grand Paris: Where do you invest profitable?

"The people of NSW love motor racing as much as anybody and we have a world class city to stage it," Shepherd told The Daily Telegraph. "We would need to choose the route carefully to avoid disrupting people but it would be a great way to sell our city to the world."

Australian Formula One Grand Prix chief Andrew Westacott was adamant that Victoria would stage the race for the next four years when the initial reports of a push for Sydney surfaced last month. He was also keen for Albert Park to host the event beyond 2025.

"We have got a commitment to stage the race with F1 and the Victorian government on April 10 next year," he said at the time. "We expect that this is going to occur. We are very close with F1 and have a relationship that goes back decades. We have a relationship that will see us host the event here until 2025, and we want to look to the future as well. We are happening next year and it will continue to happen. Our remit is to look beyond 2025.
