    F1 Estiria 2020 Race HighLights


    Situado a 190km de Viena, en Spielberg, en las montañas de Estiria, el actual Red Bull Ring fué fundado como el Osterreichring, y fue sede del primer Gran Premio de Austria en 1970.

    A través de los años, el circuito ha pasado de ser un trazado de once curvas y 5,9 kilómetros , desde 1970 a 1987, a su versión actual de 4,3 kilometros y nueve curvas, una configuración que ha mantenido desde su segunda etapa en la F1, desde el año 1997 al año 2003, cuando respondia al nombre de A1 Ring.

    Es uno de los pocos circuitos del calendario que no ha sido diseñado por Hermann Tilke, aunque este se inspirara cláramente en la primera curva del A1Ring para “transplantarla” al circuito Tejano de COTA.

    En 2011, el fabricante austriaco de bebidas energéticas Red Bull, propietario también de las escuderías de Fórmula Uno, Red Bull y Toro Rosso, añadió el circuito a su cartera automovilistica cuando compró, reconstruyó y puso en marcha las instalaciones, siendo el pasado año 2014 el primero de su tercera etapa en la Fórmula Uno.

    El Red Bull Ring mantiene las catarcterísticas del A1Ring, y aunque no es precísamente de complejo trazado, es todo un reto, ya que los abruptos cambios de pendiente, las tres rectas seguidas, rematada cada una de ellas con una curva lenta, y la revirada sección central de media/alta velocidad, lo convirte en un híbrido entre Monza y Montreal, pero a los nada desdeñables 700 metros de altura media.

    Debido a la excepcionalidad de la pandemia mundial de covid-19, desde 2020 es uno de los tres circuitos que repite carrera en un mismo año, un G.P con denominación G.P. de Estiria y el otro con denominación G.P. de Austria.

    Muchas gracias, McH.

    A ver si nos divertimos también aquí, en la carrera de la que los pilotos salen mareaitos de dar tanta vuelta.

    Espero que Ferrari logre encontrar un mejor setup que en Francia o en el primer tercio de la carrera igual están ya hasta doblados.

    Y a ver si la felicidad de Fernando sigue creciendo.

    Otra vez me toca perderme todo el viernes e igual me pierdo la carrera. Al menos me quedará la qualy.

    Gracias por el hilo Mch.

    Yo tengo finde movidito, el Sabado ni pisar casa, pero la carrera la veo. No sé, anticipo una clasificación de locura, que espero nadie me reviente y ver aunque sea el Domingo por la mañana repetida.

    Y viendo la igualdad que ha habido los ultimos años en este circuito, puede ser un bombazo, encima dos carreras seguidas.

    Styria GP: Preview - Haas

    Uralkali Haas F1 Team is heading to the green pastures of Austria for Rounds 8 and 9 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

    Austria joined Formula 1's calendar in 1964 at the Zeltweg Airfield but the flat and featureless circuit proved unpopular, and a new complex was designed in the hills above nearby Spielberg. The fast and flowing Osterreichring featured between 1970 and 1987 before returning in refurbished and truncated fashion as the A1 Ring from 1997 through 2003. The venue fell into disrepair thereafter, with no events taking place for eight years, before it was brought up to modern standards and heavily renovated by Red Bull.


    Austria's grand prix subsequently returned once more in 2014, with the verdant hills again reverberating to the sound of Formula 1 machinery. In 2020 Spielberg became the first venue in Formula 1 history to host two races in the same calendar year. Its pair of events were the opening rounds of the pandemic-delayed season as Formula 1 proved that it could safely compete in a challenging global environment, providing a much-needed fillip for the motorsport industry.


    The 4.3km circuit has only 10 corners and its short lap time leaves very little wiggle room, heightening any mistake, which frequently leads to close qualifying sessions and fast-paced racing.

    Once more in 2021 Spielberg will host two grands prix across successive weekends, with the first titled the Styrian Grand Prix - in deference to the local commune - and the second taking on the Austrian Grand Prix moniker.


    With Austria lifting restrictions on July 1st a full capacity crowd is set to be welcomed to Spielberg for the second event - the first such occasion since 2019.


    Austria brings back welcome memories for Uralkali Haas F1 Team and its rookie drivers. It was at Spielberg in 2018 where Haas F1 Team claimed its best ever race result of fourth and fifth, amassing 22 points, en route to fifth overall in the Constructors' Championship. In 2017 Nikita Mazepin made two podium appearances in European Formula 3 while Mick Schumacher scored a double pole position and a pair of victories on his way to the championship trophy in 2018. Both drivers amassed substantial experience at Spielberg in FIA Formula 2 in 2019 and 2020 prior to their graduation to Formula 1.


    We're almost a year on from when the Red Bull Ring in Austria hosted a pair of races to re-start the 2020 Formula 1 season. The world is certainly a different place now but what do you recall of your thoughts and emotions heading into those races after four months of uncertainty after the cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix in March? Did you expect then that a season could realistically be completed or was it simply a case of being happy to get going again in some capacity?

    Guenther Steiner: "Of course, we were happy to get going again and let's see what we could do with it. I think it was very good from the Austrian organizers to start the season last year, in 2020, and also this year to jump in with a second race when we needed it. It's a good place to go to anyway but if there's a place where you want to stay for two races, one of them would be obviously Austria. They're doing a good job and they're always here to help. Last year they triggered the Formula 1 revival after everyone thought the season would not start."


    With fans returning this year for both races and the circuit generally enjoyed by drivers and teams alike, what is it that makes the atmosphere at the Red Bull Ring so special?

    GS: "I think it's the amount of passion from the people. It's always been a race where a lot of people have come from everywhere and now it seems to be taken over by the Dutch fans. We know they are very loyal to Max - they like to party, and they know how to do it! I think that's one thing but in general, it's the scenery - it's beautiful - and it is a good race track and everybody enjoys it."


    Does having a second race at the same circuit, just one week apart, allow you more of an opportunity to benchmark the progress of Nikita and Mick behind the wheel of the VF-21?

    GS: "I wouldn't say it's planning to benchmark. It gives them a chance that if on the first race we learn something, we can try something different for the second race. It's more a test that if we learn something you can think about it a little bit longer than on a race weekend and that's the opportunity for us."


    Finally, how often do you cast your mind back to Austria 2018 when the team captured its best-ever result with a fourth and fifth place finish with Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen. Does it inspire you that on a given day, and in the right circumstances, a team such as Uralkali Haas F1 Team can score big in Formula 1?

    GS: "I think back every time we go out on the race track this year to keep motivated. I'm sure we can go back, we did it once and we can repeat it but we just need a little bit of time. We've had a few tough years but what makes you suffer, makes you tougher. We will come back, it will take a little bit longer but for sure, finishing fourth and fifth in 2018 was our best result. When you know what is possible and you have experienced it, you know you can do it again."


    The Red Bull Ring hasn't been the kindest track to you in terms of results from your time in Formula 2 in 2019 and 2020 - a pair of top 10 finishes your best results in six race starts. What memories do you have from the circuit from your junior career?

    Nikita Mazepin: "The Red Bull Ring hasn't been so bad. I think it's a circuit I can be good at presuming I feel comfortable in the car. In 2019, I didn't get myself around to the car balance and I wasn't very happy with the way the car was. In 2020, it was the first round of the championship and unfortunately my car broke down in the first free practice therefore I went out in qualifying and just missed out on a top-10 finish, which I believe was a very good result after not driving for six months. Then, we had a 25-second pitstop in the second race which also put us down in the time sheets but in terms of the times, we were there, and I'm hoping that this gradual improvement with luck and performance will continue from there onwards."


    Describe a lap of the Red Bull Ring and what you expect there behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car?

    NM: "The track is rather short if you look at the track map, and also looking at it you might think that it's very straightforward. However, I think it's a real car circuit - if the car is good there, the driver is able to extract some great lap times. There are very few slow speed corners on the track and it's dominated by much more high-speed so I'm looking forward to seeing what the VF-21 feels like out there."


    You experienced back-to-back races in Austria last season to start the Formula 2 season. This year you're doing the double again at the Red Bull Ring in Formula 1. Do you think a second race at the same circuit, just one week apart, allows you more of an opportunity to benchmark your progress in the VF-21 and with the team?

    NM: "I genuinely do think it will be interesting to race back-to-back at the circuit. As a rookie in Formula 1, you often feel you're not getting enough time behind the wheel, especially with free practices being shortened, so I think it will definitely put everybody much closer together with two weeks of racing on the same circuit and hopefully FP1, 2 and 3 will be a bit more straightforward. I've never done 90-minute FP1's like other drivers have, however it doesn't feel short to me having three free practices available when I'm used to one 45-minute free practice before qualifying. I think Formula 2 brings you up in a very strict manner so that you appreciate it in Formula 1."


    The second race in Austria will see a different tire compound selection available - moving from Pirelli's C2-C3-C4 range for the Styrian Grand Prix to the softer selection of C3-C4-C5 for the Austrian Grand Prix. What are the challenges in running different compounds at the same track on consecutive weekends and how steep is the learning curve with the new, shortened 60-minute practice sessions this season?

    NM: "I don't think the challenges will be that big. I'm a big fan of soft tires because they ultimately feel better on a single push and they also need less warm-up time, however that comes at a cost of tires going away quicker. For me, it's a little bit difficult to predict what it's going to be now. I just believe on a track like Austria which is very smooth, being on the softest compound available will make it easier to warm-up the tires and potentially a more interesting race for the fans with the tires going away."


    The Red Bull Ring hasn't been the kindest track to you in terms of results from your time in Formula 2 in 2019 and 2020 - a pair of 4th place finishes your best results in six race starts. What memories do you have from the circuit from your junior career?

    Mick Schumacher: "I've always been very happy around the Red Bull Ring; it's been a great track for me and I've been fast. In terms of luck, maybe it wasn't always my race, but I think in general we've had the pace. In 2019, it was the first race where I had the pace to stay with the top runners, even though it was a lap down, and I was just as close as what Nyck de Vries was doing at the time, and he won the championship that year. Looking at Formula 3, my speed was good and I've had multiple wins there. In general, the Red Bull Ring is a very special track - it has a lot of altitude changes in it and quite frankly it's a track that is fun to drive."


    Describe a lap of the Red Bull Ring and what you expect there behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car?

    MS: "I haven't driven a Formula 1 car around the track so it's hard to describe but looking at it there are three very fast corners at T6, T7 and again in T9 and I'm excited about experiencing that in a Formula 1 car. We have high braking areas as well which is tough for the car and tough for the brakes. I'm very much looking forward to it. It's going to be a double-header with the team so we can try lots of things and hopefully we'll be able to try to maximize what we have."


    You experienced back-to-back races in Austria last season to start the Formula 2 season. This year you're doing the double again at the Red Bull Ring in Formula 1. Do you think a second race at the same circuit, just one week apart, allows you more of an opportunity to benchmark your progress in the VF-21 and with the team?

    MS: "It gives me the opportunity to try something in the second weekend during FP1 and FP2 because normally we have to run some different programs and try some things, which we'll do in the first weekend but then on the second weekend we're able to try some other things. We'll get a lot of information through that and hopefully set-up the car to the maximum of its potential."


    The second race in Austria will see a different tire compound selection available - moving from Pirelli's C2-C3-C4 range for the Styrian Grand Prix to the softer selection of C3-C4-C5 for the Austrian Grand Prix. What are the challenges in running different compounds at the same track on consecutive weekends and how steep is the learning curve with the new, shortened 60-minute practice sessions this season?

    MS: "They have done the same thing as last year where we just changed the tire compound, but Austria is not the biggest tire consumer in that sense. The first weekend is probably going to be more on the harder compound and easier to keep the tires alive but potentially to warm them up will be a bit difficult. It changes a bit for that second weekend, but I think that strategies will stay the same and the things we can try will also be the same. I'm just happy we get to drive to much and spend time with the team."

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Martin Brundle (Sing '09)

    "Alonso has been brilliant all weekend, absolutely brilliant". "A driver not always easyto love, but very easy to admire".

    Styria & Austrian GP: Preview - Williams

    The first triple-header of the 2021 calendar continues this weekend, with the team travelling to Austria's Red Bull Ring for rounds eight and nine of the FIA Formula One World Championship.

    The Hermann Tilke designed circuit weaves its way through the picturesque mountains of Styria, with the compact configuration comprising of just 10 corners and a sequence of short, fast straights. Despite being one of the season's shorter laps, the 4.318km track packs quite a punch, which happens to be the sign up code for bet365, placing emphasis on good traction and straight-line speed.


    Roy Nissany, the team's Test Driver, will make his third FP1 appearance of the season at the Austrian Grand Prix, with George Russell returning to the car for FP2.


    Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: The Red Bull Ring is a superb test of the Formula One car, demanding power, aerodynamic efficiency and good braking. The location of the circuit in the Styrian Mountains makes for a dramatic visual setting but also places some heavy demands on the car. The big elevation changes and high altitude have a big impact on the cars' performance. The track surface and the heavily handed nature of the circuit place additional demands on the tyres.


    For the Grand Prix of Styria, which is the first of two back-to-back races here in Zeltweg, Pirelli bring the traditional compound allocation for this circuit of C2, C3 & C4. This is the middle of the Pirelli range and is the same as we used last weekend in France, and they should offer a good solid set of compounds for this event. For the subsequent Grand Prix of Austria, we switch to the softer combination of C3, C4 & C5, which are the compounds that we had in Monaco and Baku.


    We made some improvements to the FW43B in France and this weekend we will be looking to consolidate those gains and to confirm the performance uplift in slightly different conditions.


    The weather conditions can be quite mixed here in Austria, even in late June and so we will be prepared for blisteringly hot sunshine and heavy rain! Both drivers are familiar with the circuit and enjoy being here. As a team we are looking forward to two weeks of racing at this fantastic circuit.


    For the Austrian Grand Prix we will have Roy in the car again and following another successful outing in France, we are keen to see him in action at the Red Bull Ring. Over the course of the two weekends we will be able to explore more of the setup options than normal and we will be looking to Roy to assist us with this important work.


    George Russell: I'm glad that we're straight into another race week off the back of a good result in France. Austria always offers some great racing with the three good straights and some very nice high-speed corners at the end of the lap, so even though it's a very short circuit, it's a fun one to drive. Two races at the same circuit gives opportunities to try different set-ups between the two, and potentially understand the car further. Overall, I'm excited to have this quick turn around and get cracking!


    Nicholas Latifi: I'm looking forward to the back-to-back races in Austria. France was a tough one for me, so the best way to reset is by getting back out on track. Austria is a circuit which generally makes for some great racing, so hopefully we'll have some of that, and it can be tough on tyres so there should be some opportunities there. With two races at the same track we'll be able to build from one week to the next and maximise our results.


    Roy Nissany: I'm really looking forward to being back in the car for the Austrian Grand Prix FP1 session. It's great to be back in the FW43B so quickly, and with the car still fresh in my mind from France, I think it will be a very useful session.

    Styria & Austrian GP: Preview - Aston Martin

    Sebastian: "The goal is to continue our points-scoring form in Austria and maintain our consistency. It's a great circuit to race at because it's such a quick lap but with plenty of high-speed and difficult corners. It feels great when you can hook the car up for a lap. It is always challenging to race at the same circuit back-to-back because the margins become increasingly small the more laps we do, but that makes it exciting."

    Lance: "Overall, Paul Ricard was a positive weekend for the team. The car showed great race pace, which enabled me to bounce back from a tough qualifying session. We head to Austria with strong momentum and we're hungry for more."


    Cognizant's Keys to the Race

    With three DRS zones (Turns One to Three, Turns Three to Four and Turns 10 to One), there's plenty of overtaking opportunities around a lap of the circuit. In 2020, the first Austrian race had 29 passes after the first lap, before an upswing to 43 the following weekend. A total of 76% of those overtakes were assisted by DRS, underlining its powerful impact.


    Overtaking is comparable to Baku. The best opportunities to overtake in Austria come at Turns Three and Four due to the heavy braking point on entry into Turn Three, which can reward late-brakers and offers several angles of attack. With a DRS zone immediately following, the downhill run to Turn Four offers a chance to fight back or power past for position.


    Pirelli is splitting its tyre options in Austria. The opening race will use the C2, C3 and C4 mid-range, used last time out in France, before going one step softer for the Austria finale with the C3, C4 and C5. The venue is traditionally low on degradation, so expect a one-stopper to be the standard strategy.


    In 2020, there were four Safety Cars across the two races in Austria (three in the opening and one in the second event), but historically there is a 50% chance of a Safety Car in dry Austrian races, and there has only ever been one Virtual Safety Car, back in 2018. A mid-race interruption could potentially turn the race into a two-stopper.


    The Circuit


    With laps completed in just over a minute, a lap of the Austrian Grand Prix is action-packed from start to finish. With elevation changes, long straights and a sweeping middle sector, keeping the flow and maintaining high speeds is the key to maximising a lap. Our official Cyber Security Partner SentinelOne presents the key technical facts and stats behind a single lap of the track.


    Ten corners are completed in under one minute and 10 seconds, highlighting the high-speed nature of the circuit, boosted by three powerful DRS zones and a sweeping downhill slalom to the flag that rewards precision - and punishes over-commitment.


    Drivers will arrive at Turn One at speeds well over 300km/h (186mph) for one of the hardest braking points on the circuit, dropping to fourth gear and 140km/h (86mph) for the medium-speed corner.


    It's key to get back on the power quickly as drivers move onto the 800m straight, which incorporates the minor flat-out kink of Turn Two, and climb towards Turn Three for one of the best overtaking spots on the track.


    Hugging the right-hand side of the circuit, drivers reach 315km/h (195mph) and sweep left to approach a bumpy braking point. The challenge of Turn Three is then increased by the sharp right-angle of the corner. Mistakes are often made, and drivers can end up on the run-off.


    Dropping to second gear and speeds of 80km/h (49mph) while navigating a tricky camber change, drivers get back on the power for another long straight downhill into Turn Four.


    With the benefit of DRS, drivers clear 300km/h (186mph) before taking on the challenge of braking downhill into a sweeping curve, which begins a high-speed and flowing downhill second and third sector.


    Turns Five, Six and Seven are navigated at high speed, with drivers often lifting rather than braking to maintain a higher average speed.


    They exit the complex at over 275km/h (170mph), pulling high lateral g-forces, maximising the outside kerb of Turn Eight before a short straight plunges downhill.


    Turns Nine and 10 arrive fast: they're back-to-back right-handers where over-aggression can lead to invalidated lap times - or worse - for using the run-off.


    It's crucial to take the inside kerb at the final corner so a driver can return to the power swiftly for the start/finish straight.


    Expect lap times to get progressively quicker across the two weekends as the track rubbers in. With consistent conditions, lap times should also significantly improve for the Austrian Grand Prix.

    Styria GP: Preview - Mercedes

    Toto Wolff: From the fans, to the drivers and the team members, this season is keeping all of us on the edge of our seats. We had an exciting race in France with another intense battle between the top four cars, and that challenge is something everyone in the team is relishing.


    After the disappointment of missing the win had faded, there were plenty of positives to take from France. We scored a good haul of points with P2 and P4 and the pace of the car was an encouraging step forward compared to Monaco and Baku, thanks to the hard work of our team members at the factories and at the track.


    But while we know there is still a long way to go and plenty more opportunities to come, in a season like this, every single point will matter and make the difference. And we've left points on the table at the last few races.


    We've debriefed France and understand the areas where we have the opportunity to improve. So, now it's all about focusing on bringing those improvements to the next two rounds in Austria, where hopefully we can swing the positive momentum back in our favour. Thankfully, we don't have to wait long for our next chance to try and do that and I can see the determination in every member of the team.


    Austria has been a tricky circuit for us in past seasons, but we went well there last year. We know the situation is very different this season, though. It's a very quick lap and a short circuit, with fewer opportunities to gain time. The margins are going to be tight, so we'll give it maximum attack!

    Styria & Austrian GP: Preview - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda look ahead to the back-to-back Styrian and Austrian Grands Prix at the Red Bull Ring.

    Pierre Gasly: "In Austria, I finished seventh and fifteenth at the Red Bull Ring in the two races there last year. The track is very short with quite a few straights and not many corners, so you need to optimise your car for those handful of corners. After my home race in France, now one week later it's a home circuit for all of us as a Red Bull team. A lot will be expected of us there from Red Bull, from AlphaTauri and all the team's partners. A full crowd of fans are being allowed in and I think that will be a good feeling having big crowds all the way around a racetrack. There should be a great energy and plenty of atmosphere, just like in the past. I can't wait to race there, it's going to be an exciting couple of weekends. They are obviously a pair of important Grands Prix for us and I hope we can continue to perform in a strong way, like we have been doing so far, scoring points in every race except the opening round of the season. We have to keep pushing like that.


    "We already saw last year that with two races on the same track, the gaps are very close, especially on what is a very short track, and you have to look to improve from one weekend to the next. Staying there two weekends in a row means the cars are optimised and of course we drivers have found out how to be on the absolute limit. It means that in Qualifying especially, it will be extremely tight.


    "Like last year, Pirelli will supply different tyre choices for the second race, which is a good idea, to ensure something changes, so that will be at least one new factor for the second weekend there."


    Yuki Tsunoda: "Austria is another circuit where I have raced before. In fact, last year in Formula 2, I took pole and finished second in the feature race of the second weekend we had there. That is good for my confidence, but in a Formula 1 car, it will be a quite different experience, so I will need to gradually build up my pace in practice and make progress through the sessions.


    "I enjoy driving this track as most of the corners are high speed, which I like. For Qualifying, it's going to be very tight, because it is such a short lap and very quick, so you have to put it all together to nail your lap and have a good result. It can be quite challenging from the driving point of view, so I am really looking forward to it. I am going to enjoy having three races in three weekends, I am fit enough and have no worries from that point of view. It will be an important couple of weekends for all of us in the Red Bull family and it will be nice to race in front of a crowd for another race."

    Styria and Austrian GP: Preview - Alfa Romeo

    The Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN team heads to Austria for two weeks of racing at the Red Bull Ring, the short but challenging circuit in Spielberg, Styria, where the eighth and ninth rounds of the championship will be held. In particular, this week's race, the Styrian Grand Prix, will be important for the team, with Alfa Romeo celebrating their 111th birthday on June 24th: to mark this momentous milestone, the team will be sporting a tribute on the livery of the C41 cars of Antonio Giovinazzi and Kimi Raikkonen, to be unveiled on Thursday.


    The tribute sported on the two cars is just one of the initiatives marking the day, with a full programme of activities, bringing to life the unique history and motorsport heritage of Alfa Romeo taking place at the marque's historical base in Arese, near Milan, throughout the weekend.


    When we last came to Austria, at the start of the 2020 season, a weird feeling pervaded the paddock. As the world of Formula One re-emerged from lockdown, so did a new season - one of the most unique in living memory - start to take shape. Nobody knew what to expect; from the racing, from the experience, from the world we were in: and yet, among the anti-infection measures, the social distancing and the "new normal", Austria produced two memorable races that set the tone for an incredible year of racing, on tracks old and new alike.


    Twelve months on, that awkward feeling is gone: strong of a full season under our belts, and with the current one going strong, the paddock turns up ready for a good show on a track that rarely produces bad races. The Austria double-race is something we're looking forward to, not with apprehension but with anticipation.


    This expectant feeling also stems from performance. Gone are the blues of 2020 - we now know we can fight - any weekend, anywhere. We head to Austria ready to battle and get back in the points, ready to continue our progression. Same venue, same two-week programme: but a whole world of difference when it comes to our expectations. On a special weekend for Alfa Romeo and the team as a whole.


    Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "We head to Austria with the confidence we have what it takes to get back on track after France: we had been on an upwards path and we're aiming to bounce back immediately and get back to scoring ways, and to do so on a special weekend for Alfa Romeo would be even more important. On such a short track, the field will be even closer: every detail will matter and we will need to ensure we deliver our best in every aspect as this is what it will take to come away with a good result. The second race, as we have seen last year, will be very peculiar: we will have a lot of data from the first weekend, but the conditions and the starting points will be very different, so there will be the need to adapt to the circumstances and get the best out of them."


    Kimi Raikkonen: "Our focus is fully on Austria and not on what happened in France. We have learnt our lessons and we are now determined to do better. Austria is one of those tracks that look easy but are not: it's short and there are only a few corners where time can be gained or lost, which means each of them is crucial for the laptime. Managing the traffic, both in qualifying and in the race, will also be a key factor but, in the end, that will be the same for everyone. I hope we get to score points on this weekend, it'd be a nice birthday present for Alfa Romeo. In the end, we need to do a better job than our rivals and then we will have the chance to score points."


    Antonio Giovinazzi: "Austria is a track I like, one where I have some good memories: I scored my first point there, in 2019, and in 2020 I brought home ninth place after a quite exciting race. I am keen to add to these moments and I am looking forward to racing there twice in two weeks. I find you can really get into a rhythm and build on each session and I feel you can really extract the most from yourself and the car. We have been doing better in most of the recent races and I can't wait to get back in the fight for the top ten on Sunday. Alfa Romeo's 111th birthday is the extra bit of motivation we need to do well and we can't wait to celebrate in style."

    Styria GP: Preview - Ferrari

    Less than one week on from the French GP, Formula 1 is back in action this weekend for the first of two races at the Spielberg circuit. This Sunday it's the Styrian Grand Prix, while on 4 July, it will be the turn of the Austrian GP. This is the second edition of the race bearing the name of the region, which first took place last year, when the venue that sits at 700 metres above sea level hosted the opening two rounds of the 2020 season, following the long delay due to the pandemic.

    The Spielberg track is one of the shortest on the calendar, measuring just 4.3 kilometres with only 11 corners. There are long straights that require plenty of power from the engines, but there are also demanding changes of direction, which makes it a medium downforce track. A lap takes just over a minute and the average speed is one of the highest of the season. In fact, Spielberg along with Monza are the tracks where not too much is asked of the brakes, which are only used for around 10 seconds per lap. The only really hard braking point is at turn 3, at the top of the slope that leads to the highest point on the track, which along with the braking point for turn 4, presents the best overtaking opportunities. There are three DRS zones: on the main straight, on the climb between turns 2 and 3 and on the straight between 3 and 4.


    The cars first take to the track on Friday, with the usual pair of one hour free practice sessions starting at 11.30 CET and 15. Qualifying takes place on Saturday at 15, preceded at 12 by the final free practice session. The second Styrian Grand Prix gets underway at 3pm on Sunday, with the drivers tackling 71 laps, a distance of 306.452 km.


    Ferrari at Spielberg (1997-2020)



    GP entered 15
    Debut Austria 1997 (M. Schumacher 6th; E. Irvine ret.)
    Wins 3 (20%)
    Pole positions 4 (26.67%)
    Fastest laps 3 (20%)
    Total podiums 16 (35.56%)


    Styrian Grand Prix: facts & figures



    7. The furthest back on the starting grid from which a race around this current Spielberg configuration has been won. David Coulthard did it in 2001. The Scot also takes the prize for making it to the podium from furthest back: in 1998, he qualified 14th and finished the Austrian Grand Prix in second place.


    12. The number of districts that make up Styria - Steiermark as it is known locally - which includes the city of Graz (330,000 inhabitants). It covers an area of 16,388 km making it the second largest in Austria after the Niederosterreich region. The Spielberg circuit is located in the Murtal district, established in 2012 with Judenberg as its capital.


    29. The average number of overtaking moves in the 15 Grands Prix run with Spielberg's current configuration. The race with most changes of position to date was the 2016 Austrian GP which boasted 66.

    Next is last year's Styrian race with 45 and then the 2018 and 2019 Austrian GPs on 42. The race with the least was the 2003 Austrian GP, won by Michael Schumacher in the Ferrari F2003-GA, with only 15 passing moves.


    1957. The year of the first car race held in Austria. It was an event for Sports and GT cars held on a track laid out on the Zeltweg airfield, a few kilometres from Spielberg. It was won by the Austrian Ernst Vogel in a Porsche, while the GT class win went to Italy's Dore Lete di Priolo at the wheel of an Alfa Romeo.he year of the first car race held in Austria.


    5942. The length of the Osterreichring in metres, the earliest incarnation of the Spielberg track built in 1969. It was very fast and boasted a large number of gradient changes as it was carved into the side of a hill. Over the years, as the cars got quicker, the track became too dangerous and therefore obsolete for Formula 1 cars and the last race was run in 1987. Eight years later, the new owners employed the architect Hermann Tilke, who redesigned the track, making it shorter and safer, giving new life to Spielberg. This track was used from 1997 to 2003. Formula 1 then returned to Austria, after the track had been modified yet again, starting in 2014.

    Styria GP: Preview - Alpine

    The team heads to the Austrian hills for the first of two rounds in Spielberg. Executive Director Marcin Budkowski reflects on a bittersweet French Grand Prix and looks ahead to the challenges of racing in Austria.

    What are the main takeaways from last weekend's French Grand Prix?

    Marcin Budkowski: We left France a bit disappointed with Fernando in eighth place and Esteban outside the points as we felt we had the pace to score bigger points. The race was all about tyre management and it impacted teams and even drivers within the same teams in a very different way. Esteban's race was more or less over after heavy graining compromised his first stint, while Fernando tip-toed on his starting set of Mediums and managed to keep his Hards alive to regain positions and put on a great fight for sixth place. He's definitely gained a lot of confidence in the car and is back at a very high level of competitiveness.


    What are the main challenges of Spielberg?

    MB: Austria is a short track with only nine corners, which means that gaps in qualifying are very small and every hundredth of a second can make a difference. A lot of the lap is spent at full throttle with most of the sectors medium to high-speed. The kerbs are big there and can be punishing for the bodywork and suspension. On top of all this, it's a bit harder on tyres than France so that is something to be wary of after last weekend.


    We've seen in the past that the weather in Austria at this time of the year can be tricky to predict as well. It's usually one of the warmest races on the calendar but storms are frequent as well. Last year in Austria we had a wet qualifying, so we'll keep a close eye on the weather radar for the whole weekend.


    What are the team's expectations for this weekend?

    MB: In the past it's not been the team's strongest circuit, but we have addressed a lot of our previous issues last year and this is not a circuit we fear anymore. We are determined to build on the promising pace we showed in France last week and return to having both cars in Q3 and both cars well inside the points.

    After a long and challenging race in France, Esteban Ocon heads to the hills of Austria for this weekend's Styrian Grand Prix. The Frenchman is motivated to work his way back into the points at the picturesque Spielberg circuit.


    What do you like about Spielberg?

    Esteban Ocon: Austria is quite a unique circuit especially with its location in the hills. I really like that, though, as it's not where you'd expect to have a racetrack! It's a really beautiful location, so to spend two weeks there is always nice. I have some good memories at this track as it's where I had one of my first podiums back in Formula Renault in 2012. Last year too, I had my best qualifying with the team in the wet, which was a lot of fun. Hopefully there are some more nice memories for us to make there.


    How challenging is a lap?

    While it's a short lap, just over one-minute, it places a focus on extracting everything from the car and getting every corner right. There are nine corners, which might sound easy as it's less to learn, but actually everything has to be maximised. Small details are crucial to doing well in Austria. My favourite part of the lap is the double left-hander at Turns 6 and 7. They're pretty quick and very enjoyable when you get them right.


    What do you remember from last year's event when racing returned?

    EO: Last year's double header in Austria was very memorable as it marked the time I returned to racing in Formula 1 and also the first race in 2020 after the delay with Covid. One thing that will be different this time around is that we'll have fans in Austria and that's exciting. Having fans in the grandstands, like in France, brings a whole new level of atmosphere and a real buzz. I really enjoy that, and I look forward to seeing the fans again this weekend.


    How do you reflect on the French Grand Prix?

    EO: I was disappointed with the race in France. We just couldn't get into a rhythm in the race, especially on the first stint with the Hard tyres. It was very difficult to manage and it gives us some thinking to do to make sure we're not in a similar situation this weekend. Tyres have been a key area in Austria in the past years, so we have some preparation to do this weekend to make sure we're back in the points. I'm certainly motivated and ready for the challenge.


    Fernando Alonso heads to Austria for the second race of Formula 1's first triple header this year, following an eighth-place finish at the French Grand Prix last weekend.


    It is your eighth visit to Austria in Formula 1, what are your thoughts heading into the weekend?

    Fernando Alonso: It's an exciting track to race on with lots of big elevation changes and high-speed corners. I raced here in the 2000s and again when it returned from 2014 so I have quite a bit of experience of the circuit and it hasn't changed much. There are some good overtaking opportunities into turn three and four, so it makes the weekend quite exciting as you can fight for positions on the Sunday. I like that it's back to back with another race as you can try keep the momentum going from the previous round.


    What will be the most important factor of the weekend?

    FA: Austria is a bit more of a traditional circuit like last weekend, so we don't expect the performance levels to differ hugely. However, we need to prepare for all scenarios because you never know and as we saw in France the tyres degraded much faster than anyone expected. Also, the weather can be unpredictable in Austria and the races are often quite open, so we need to prepare the right way and see what we can do.


    You managed a second points finish in a row at the French Grand Prix, how do you reflect on a busy home Grand Prix for the team?

    FA: Well it was a good weekend for us and we showed that our performance on Saturday and Sunday was more consistent with what we've already seen at circuits like Portugal. What we experienced at Monaco and Baku was a bit unique, so we can look at the rest of the season with confidence. I had a good race and found the Hard tyres performed well. I was quite concerned after the first stint on the Mediums, but I think it was the same for most of the field and we just had to manage that a little and plan our strategy well. I want to carry on the momentum from the last two races, so we'll be aiming for another points finish here in Austria.

    Styria GP: Preview - Red Bull

    In France you scored a career hattrick in taking your third clean sweep of pole position, race victory and fastest lap. Just how good was last weekend?

    Max Verstappen: It was an amazing weekend and it always feels good to get pole position, but to win was a great result. I'm super pleased with that, and we won the race on strategy. I hope now we can keep this up for the rest of the year. Everyone at the track and in the factory is working flat out and now we just need to keep pushing to win more races this year.

    Historically, Circuit Paul Ricard has been a weaker track for us so did you expect to be so competitive?

    MV: No we didn't as Mercedes have been so strong there in the past but we are seeing that every race weekend is different in terms of competitiveness and you never know where you stand until you're out on track. You never know what the others are capable of so we didn't expect this result which makes it even more satisfying. It was a great team effort from everybody, you can see everyone is working very well together and it's just a great team of people here.


    The next race of this triple header is at our home track, the Red Bull Ring. What are you expecting?

    MV: I'm really looking forward to Austria because of course it's like a home Grand Prix and the opportunity to have two races makes it even better. It's always nice to race here and we've had good results at the Red Bull Ring but nothing is ever guaranteed. We have to again set up the car well there, read the conditions and react to them. I don't know what the weather will be like but for sure I'm expecting it to be close again. We'll find out when we get there but hopefully we can have two very good weekends.


    With third place in France, you scored back to back podiums for the first time in your F1 career. How do you summarise the weekend?

    Sergio Perez: It was a positive weekend and it was great for the Team to take a double podium and score valuable points in the constructors championship. On my side I am still making progress and things are coming together but everything is going in the right direction.


    As a Team we didn't expect this kind of performance at a track that hasn't suited us in the past.

    SP: As a Team we worked really well together in France. We made the strategy work and now we just need to keep it up. It's time to look ahead and it's still very early in the season so we need to keep working hard and treat every race as if it's the last. The motivation from everybody is super high, and we'll take this momentum forward to maximise our potential in the coming races.


    Next up is the Styrian Grand Prix and Red Bull's home race...

    SP: I'm looking forward to racing for Red Bull at its home Grand Prix and we have two weekends now at the same track which I think will help me a lot in terms of progress and getting more experience in the car. The Team has done well here in the past so hopefully that form continues and we can get some good results.

    Red Bull Racing has scored three consecutive victories for the first time in the hybrid era.


    Honda Racing has won three races in a row for the first time since Ayrton Senna won the opening four races of the 1991 Formula One World Championship.


    Max scored a career hattrick at the French GP after taking pole position, race victory and fastest lap.


    The upcoming Styrian and Austrian Grands Prix present an opportunity to win consecutive races on consecutive weekends at the same race track - a feat no Formula One driver has ever accomplished
    With third place at the French Grand Prix, Checo scored back to back podium finishes for the first time in his career.


    The 2021 Styrian Grand Prix takes place on 25-26-27 June, dates that only Red Bull Racing has won races on, with Daniel winning the 2017 Azerbaijan GP on June 25, Sebastian winning the 2011 European GP on June 26, and the 2010 European GP on June 27.

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Styria GP: Preview - Pirelli

    For the second and third instalments in Austria of the year’s first triple-header, Pirelli has made two separate tyre nominations on the same track (as was also the case last year at Silverstone).

    For the first race at the Red Bull Ring, known as the Steiermark Grand Prix, C2 will be the P Zero White hard, C3 will be the P Zero Yellow medium, and C4 will be the P Zero Red soft.


    At the Austrian Grand Prix, held just one weekend later on an identical track, P Zero White hard will be the C3, P Zero Yellow medium will be the C4 and P Zero Red soft will be the C5: the softest combination in the Pirelli range.


    These two separate nominations have been made to create a differential between the two races, providing some strategic variation with the introduction of the softest compound for the second weekend.


    The Red Bull Ring is a compact and rollercoaster track, with a frantic and quite short lap characterised by one corner after another and several changes in elevation. Despite that, it’s not especially demanding on tyres, which is what makes it possible for the softest tyres in the range to be used.


    Following the Austrian Grand Prix, AlphaTauri will remain at the Red Bull Ring for Pirelli's 2022 18-inch tyre test, focussing on the latest-generation slick tyres from 6-7 July.


    Track Characteristics


    The short 4.3-kilometre and 10-corner lap means that traffic is often a problem, and this is a factor when it comes to race and especially qualifying strategy. Because of the short and flowing lap, the performance gaps between the compounds tend to be quite small. The majority of corners are right-handers, but the two most demanding corners are actually left-handers: which means that the unloaded tyres go into them relatively cold each time.


    The first back-to-back race on the same circuit this year means that teams will have plenty of data and opportunity to maximise the potential of the tyres - especially during the second weekend. As a result, the teams will concentrate especially on the softest C5 tyres when it comes to preparing for the Austrian Grand Prix.


    In the past, this has been a one-stop race on paper - apart from the occasions when a safety car has prompted drivers to take a ‘free’ pit stop. This is set to be the case again at the Steiermark Grand Prix, but the softer nomination a week later could push teams closer to a two-stopper for the Austrian Grand Prix.


    Mario Isola: "Once again after last year Austria hosts a back-to-back race, which means that the teams have plenty of data on this track and recent experience of how to deal with its particular challenges and tactics. However, having two different tyre nominations is a first for the Red Bull Ring, so it's going to be interesting to see how the teams get to grips with the softest C5 tyres for the second race weekend - and how the new selection influences strategy in order to create different opportunities compared to the preceding Steiermark Grand Prix."

    On the #RB16B, Red Bull has now extended the serrated trailing edge to the full lenght of the diffuser flap (not only in the corners). It seems to be made of carbon.
