Ready to get up to speed with the 2021 Styrian Grand Prix? The fearsome, 4.318-kilometre Red Bull Ring started out as the ‘Osterreichring’ in 1969. In the mid-90s, legendary F1 track designer Hermann Tilke shortened the track but kept the stomach-turning elevation changes, turning it into an F1 rollercoaster. Sunday’s unmissable race takes place over 71 laps.
It was called after Styria, the Austrian region where the circuit is located. The inaugural race took place in 2020. Despite the fact that the Styrian Grand Prix was originally planned to be a one-off event in 2020, it will return in 2021 as the eighth round of the championship to replace the Turkish Grand Prix, which was postponed owing to travel restrictions imposed by the continuing COVID-19 epidemic.
