About

The Austrian Grand Prix is a Formula One race held at the Red Bull Ring in Austria. The race has been part of the Formula One Calendar at various stages in history. It first came into existence in 1970 and was part of the calendar till 1987. Then it made a return in 1997 and was part of the calendar till 2003. The latest iteration came into existence in 2014 when the Grand Prix was held at the Red Bull Ring. 

Racing History

The Austrian Grand Prix in its latest iteration has been part of the calendar since 2014. The first race saw Felipe Mass from Williams take Pole Position only to lose his position and a shot at victory to the Mercedes drivers. Nico Rosberg would eventually win the race. 

In 2015, Nico Rosberg would dominate the weekend and pick up his second win on this track. The 2016 season would feature Lewis Hamilton defy all odds and overtake Nico Rosberg on the last lap to win the race. The 2017 season would see Valterri Bottas hold off the threat from Sebastian Vettel to win the race.

The 2018 season would see a new face in Max Verstappen beat the challenge of the Mercedes and Ferrari to give Red Bull its first win on their home circuit. In 2019, Max Verstappen would follow up his last year’s heroics with an even better result as he would storm through the field and overtake Charles Leclerc in the closing moments of the race to win. 

The 2020 season would see Mercedes rise back from the ashes with a dominating car and Valterri Bottas winning the race with ease. 


The track in its latest iteration has been dominated by the Mercedes with as many as 5 wins out of the races held here. Valterri Bottas, Nico Rosberg, and Max Verstappen have all won 2 races each on this track. 

The 2021 edition of the Austrian Grand Prix will be held on 4 July 2021.
