Styrian Grand Prix
Red Bull Ring
Formula 1 GP Styria
A unique item on the Formula 1 calendar: Two races in Spielberg on the Red Bull Ring. For the second year running, Formula 1 will visit the Red Bull Ring and stay for a second race. The Styrian Grand Prix forms the first race, with the Austrian Grand Prix one week later. The French Grand Prix on the 20th June forms a triple header.
Due to the worldwide outbreak of the Covid-19 virus, Formula 1 has decided to use the same circuit twice. Last year the same happened at Silverstone, but as it stands the Red Bull Ring is the only venue performing this trick in 2021. As a result of the Turkish Grand Prix being cancelled, Styria steps in again.
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 kilometres 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.
In 2020, it formed the second race of the season. Lewis Hamilton won the race and he was joined on the podium alongside usual suspects Max Verstappen and Valtteri Botts.
What will the race weekend of the Styrian Grand Prix look like?
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 25th June. On Saturday, June 26thth the third free practice qualifying will take place. On Sunday June 27th, the race will start.
What time does the Styrian 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 14:00 UK time.
