Austrian Grand Prix ~ 2018

Formula 1 has not set foot in Austria since 2003. After 18 consecutive races from 1970 to 1981, the circuit was reduced before hosting another 6 races from 1997 to 2003. It then became impracticable and was bought and rebuilt in the following years by Red Bull's Dietrich Mateschiltz. Renamed the Red Bull Ring, the track was reopened. The Spielberg circuit is characterized by its elevation changes, as well as for its beautiful natural backdrop: panoramic views of Styria’s green countryside.
