Updated: Jul 5, 2023

This weekend, we delve into the captivating realm of the Austrian Grand Prix, a spectacular event that combines high-speed competition with the stunning backdrop of the Austrian Alps. The Austrian Grand Prix is a must-watch for motorsport enthusiasts worldwide, as the Red Bull Ring has become synonymous with thrilling racing, remarkable displays of skill, and unforgettable moments that etch themselves into the annals of motorsport history


The Austrian GP will also be the second sprint race of the season, the first being back in April at the Baku GP.


Here is a reminder of the new sprint format:

  • Friday will see 1 free practice session and qualifying for Sunday's GP.

  • Saturday will see the sprint shootout (qualifying session for the sprint race) and the sprint race.

  • Sunday will see the GP as usual.

The sprint shootout is 30 minutes long, divided into 3 sections (like quali). Q1 is 12 minutes, and drivers must drive with a medium tyre. The slowest 5 cars are then eliminated. Q2 is 10 minutes long, and drivers again must drive with a medium trye. The slowest 5 cars are eliminated. Finally, Q3 is 8 minutes long, and drivers must drive with a soft tyre.
