Grand Prix of Austria is still waiting for the green light from the government

Officially the green light for the Austrian Grand Prix has not yet been given, but that seems to be a matter of time. All parties want to organize the race in June and it is only waiting for approval from the government.

The plans are therefore currently at the Ministry of Health in Austria. The plan is to organize two races in Austria. The first has to take place in the weekend of the 5th of July and the following week on July 12th the second race will follow. The races have to take place without an audience and also the teams will come with much less staff.

Race without an audience

''We've been sent the concept by the organisation and we're trying to come up with an answer as soon as possible'', says health minister Rudolf Anschober to ORF. It would be a double race on the Red Bull Ring, where Max Verstappen won the last two years.

Although according to the Austrian government 500 people are welcome at events, the organization wants a race in Spielberg without an audience. There is now a proposal for a maximum of 2,000 people present at the Grand Prix. This concerns the organization itself, teams, the television broadcasters and the accompanying Marshalls.
