Just how much work goes into building a Grand Prix circuit from the ground up?

For those of you who have visited Melbourne for the Australian Grand Prix, you’ll appreciate that it is a magnificent facility.

Used as a public park all year round, the Albert Park complex undergoes a massive transformation over the space of three months to turn it into a world-class Grand Prix facility.

Thankfully, the clever people at the Australian Grand Prix Corporation have released this great time lapse video showing you how its all done – check it out after the jump…

Pretty cool, hey?
