Another sea of Orange fans for Verstappen: '140,000 spectators in Austria'.

The next two weeks the Formula 1 will race twice on the Red Bull Ring. First for the Styrian Grand Prix, and then for the Austrian Grand Prix. Helmut Marko has already made it clear that Red Bull is aiming for full grandstands for the second race.

It still varies a bit per event, but you see more and more fans appearing during sporting events. Also Formula 1 allows more fans, and that makes the sport a lot more fun.

Full stands in Austria

We can expect those kind of images again in Austria. At least, if we are to believe Helmut Marko. Austria is normally a sea of Orange fans for Verstappen, but that will be less during the first race. However, during the Austrian Grand Prix they want full grandstands.

''We will allow 15,000 people during the first race. For the second race, we want to allow 140,000 spectators for a whole weekend of three days. We always have big goals in mind. On and off the track. Of course this will not be easy, because all COVID-19-rules are very strict, and that scares a lot of people. However, safety comes first'', Marko said to Blick.
