Four Formula One teams will remain at the Red Bull Ring after the Austrian Grand Prix for a tyre test with Pirelli. Red Bull Racing, among others, will test the new tyres for 2023 in the aftermath of its home race.

Pirelli introduced the new 18-inch tyres for the 2022 season, and have 25 test days to refine the tyres for next year. Red Bull Racing will take part in the tyre test for the first time on its own ground and will be joined by McLaren, Alpine and Williams.

Red Bull stay in Austria for tyre test

McLaren and Williams will be in action on Tuesday and Wednesday, while Red Bull and Alpine will be on track on either day. The Italian tyre supplier will run a programme during the test, with the data shared between all teams to ensure none of the participants gain an unfair advantage.

During the test there will be no possibility to test any new parts. After Ferrari and presumably Mercedes did so during their tyre tests, the FIA has introduced a rule change which explicitly prohibits the testing of updates.
