Formula 1 GP Styria
A unique item on the Formula 1 calendar: Two races in Spielberg on the Red Bull Ring. The team members of the Austrian Red Bull Racing are already doing a victory dance. Twice in a row a race on the track where they were so successful last year with the Dutchman Max Verstappen. Max won the Austrian Grand Prix in 2018 and 2019.
Due to the worldwide outbreak of the Covid-19 virus, Formula 1 has decided to drive several races on one circuit in Europe. In addition to Silverstone, we will also get two races on the Red Bull Ring in 2020.
Where the first race is called the Austrian Grand Prix, the second race is called the Styrian Grand Prix. Why was this name chosen? Styria is a federal state in Austria where the Red Bull Ring is located. The capital of this state is Graz and is located about 230 kilometers from the circuit.
The Styrian Grand Prix 2020
For this race Formula 1 will use the same layout as during the Austrian Grand Prix. So expect a lot of action on the straights with 3 DRS zones and some beautiful corners of the circuit in the Austrian Alps.
What will the race weekend of the Styrian Grand Prix look like?
The exact details of the Styrian Grand Prix are not yet known. The Covid-19 measures will severely restrict the freedom of movement of all staff. It is expected that the structure of the weekend will be the same as that of the other races.
The first and second free practice sessions will be held on Friday 10 July at 11:00 and 15:00. On Saturday July 11th the third free practice will start at 11:00 and qualification at 15:00. Sunday July 12th the race will start at 15:10.
What time does the Steiermark Grand Prix start?
Like all other races, the second Grand Prix on the Red Bull Ring can be followed live in the live blog of GPblog from one hour before the start of the race. The start time of the Styrian Grand Prix is 15:10 CEST.
