Race
Welcome to the Red Bull Ring, the site of what is quite possibly the prettiest setting for an F1 track at the scenic Styrian mountains of Spielberg, and host to the Austrian Grand Prix.
Aside from a breathtaking backdrop, the circuit offers a blend of fast straights, tight corners, and elevation changes in just 10 turns.
After dropping out of the sport in the early 00s, the track returned to Formula 1 in 2014 and has cemented itself as one of the more entertaining races on the calendar.
Circuit Overview:
The Red Bull Ring is a short 4.318 km (2.683 miles) track with 10 turns and some of the shortest lap times and highest average speeds.
Turn 1 and Turn 3 have uphill braking zones that aid overtaking, particularly with DRS straights preceding each, and Turn 3's tight corner allows for classic up-and-under moves to pass and defend.
What goes up must go down, and Turn 4's downhill entry is tricky to slow down into, with the remaining five corners in Sectors 2 and 3 usually being single file, but the short run means a driver never waits long for their next opportunity.
