Austrian media knows for sure: Grand Prix of Austria starts F1 season

It will be officially announced after Whitsun, but also the Austrian media know for sure: The Austrian Grand Prix will be the start of the Formula 1 season of 2020 on July 5th and 12th.

It's already clear

The Austrian Minister of Public Health Anschober, previously knew that a decision will be announced on the Formula 1 race in Spielberg immediately after Whitsun. On Friday, however, the Dutch national broadcaster NOS already announced that the decision has been made. 

For example, the Austrian website Motorprofis reports that Austria will be the start of the Formula 1 season in 2020. The organisation's plan would comply with all the guidelines, so now there is an official green light to get the work started. After the cancelled start in March, Formula 1 will finally get going.

Yet public

However, the Formula 1 weekend in Austria will look different than usual. First of all there will already be two races in Austria and this will happen without an audience. At least, that was the assumption, but after previous quotes from Helmut Marko, the Austrian media now also reports that 500 fans are reportedly welcome on the circuit.

Besides the audience, the teams will also be allowed to come in smaller numbers. The teams are only allowed to bring 80 staff and so it is a matter of choice. Once arrived in Austria, the teams will also be quarantined and the teams will stay far away from each other to prevent mutual contamination.
