Formula 1 returns to the foot of the Styrian mountains for the 2018 Austrian Grand Prix. Spielberg, in south-eastern Austria, is home to the 4.318 km-long Red Bull Ring (formerly known as A1-Ring and Österreichring). The circuit hosted the Austrian Grand Prix from 1970 until 1987, and from 1997 until 2003. In 2014, under new Red Bull ownership, the race returned to the Formula 1 calendar. The 2018 event marks the second of three consecutive grands prix – the first-ever triple-header of races in Formula 1 history.
Scuedria Ferrari have secured seven pole positions in Austria, the most by any team in this country. They’re one win away from equalling McLaren as the team with the most victories in Austria; however, the last time the Scuderia won and took the pole here was in 2003.
Join us later in the afternoon for the latest updates and results from the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, as the 2018 Austrian Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of the SF71H, ready to challenge Mercedes for the win.
