Formula 1 Austrian GP

Home sweet home for Red Bull Racing in the eleventh Grand Prix on the 2023 calendar: The Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring! Toto Wolff and Helmut Marko are also in their home country. Ironically, this was never a track where Red Bull Racing did well in the past, but in recent years, thanks to the tyre management and fantastic overtaking by Max Verstappen, the team has completely turned that around.

The Austrian Grand Prix 2023

Hermann Tilke also put a hand on the current Red Bull Ring in Austria, so you know one thing for sure: Lots of straights with high speeds. Three DRS zones take this one step further. Although the circuit is located in the foothills of the Austrian Alps, it is, with the exception of Zandvoort and Spa-Francorchamps, one of the most accessible and affordable Grands Prix for European fans. 

It will be a party again. With thousands of fans, most in orange, shouting in the stands, the drivers will battle each other for 71 laps (one lap lasts just over a minute).

What does the race weekend of the Austrian Grand Prix look like?

It's the second of three sprint weekends in Formula 1 2023. On June 30, the drivers will take their seats in their cars for the first free practice session. FP1 is scheduled at 12:30 pm UK time. Qualifying then starts on the same day at 16:00. The second free practice session then takes place on Saturday morning, before the sprint race at 15:30. The race takes place as usual on Sunday July 2nd.
