FORMULA 1 GROSSER PREIS VON ÖSTERREICH 2016

Race Information

Austria, Spielberg

July 03 | 14:00 local time, 14:00 CET

Returning to the Formula 1 calendar after a hiatus since 2003, the newly named Red Bull Ring, near Graz in Austria, has played host to numerous memorable races in its previous twenty-five Grands Prix. Following a re-design of the original Österreichring by Hermann Tilke in 1996, the Spielberg circuit consists of much undulation and a combination of fast and slow corners, sure to make it a spectacle for fans. Michael Schumacher claimed victory in the two most recent races here - although his 2002 win caused plenty of controversy as Ferrari ordered Rubens Barrichello, Schumacher’s team-mate and the race leader, to let the German past on the final lap to open up his lead in the FIA Formula One World Championship™.
