Formula 1 heads to Spielberg for this weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix, which rounds off the first back-to-back events of the 2019 season.

Following a rather unforgettable French Grand Prix, the F1 circus rolls up to the Styrian mountains and the picturesque Red Bull Ring for the ninth round of the season.

Lewis Hamilton holds a 36-point lead over Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas in the championship, but does not boast the best record in Austria, having only taken one victory at the circuit back in 2016.

Ferrari will be desperate to kickstart its season with its first win of the year at a circuit which should favour its car, while Red Bull will be looking for a strong result on home soil, following its victory at last year’s event.

The 2019 Austrian Grand Prix takes place on Sunday June 30. Cars will hit the track for the first time during FP1 and FP2 on Friday, before final practice and qualifying takes place on Saturday.
