After an absence of 11 years from the F1 itinerary, the Red Bull Ring returned in style in June 2014 and laid a solid foundation for the modern era of the Austrian Grand Prix.
The Red Bull Ring, situated in the Steiermark region, is the only Formula One circuit in the country and has a reputation as one of the highlights on the calendar, despite recent high-profile additions such as Las Vegas. The wall of colour created by the travelling ‘orange army’ of Max Verstappen fans is one of the most recognisable spectacles of the modern F1 calendar.
Eleven Grands Prix have been staged at the Red Bull Ring, including two races in 2020 and 2021. The venue has hosted many memorable moments involving star names of the motorsport world and some key home wins for Oracle Red Bull Racing.
The all-time leader in F1 race wins in Austria is Verstappen on four (2018, 2019 and a double win in 2021) ahead of Alain Prost on three.
The 2023 Austrian Grand Prix is set to take place on the weekend of June 20 – July 2.
About Red Bull Ring:
Since its return to the calendar in 2014, the Red Bull Ring has earned a special place in the hearts of fans, teams and drivers with its unique side events and great passion for Formula 1 – making a great name for itself in international motorsport. The extraordinary circumstances of 2020 also resulted in some historic firsts. The season’s opening race took place in Austria for the first time, and two Grands Prix were held on the same race track on two consecutive weekends. In addition to the Formula 1 Austrian Grand Prix, there was also a Formula 1 Großer Preis der Steiermark.
