Austrian GP 2022 - Track Guide

Here's everything you need to know about the Austrian Grand Prix, officially the Fromula 1 Rolex Grosser Preis Von Österreich 2022.

The original Österreichring was built in 1969, as a replacement for the Zeltweg airfield circuit. The track known today as the Red Bull Ring was created over the winter of 1995, designed by Hermann Tilke, who turned the Österreichring into a shorter, more modern race track. Jacques Villeneuve won the first ever F1 race in the A1-Ring, as it was then called, in 1996.

Sergio Perez, Charles Leclerc, 2021 Austrian GP

What Austria gave us in 2021:

It was an easy win for Max Verstappen, not as easy of a race for his teammate Sergio Perez though. Lando Norris forced him off at T3, receiving a 5-sec penalty, with the Mexican doing the exact same thing to Charles Leclerc later. He did so twice, at T3 and at T6 just after, receiving two 5-sec penalties himself. He finished at P5, with Leclerc finishing at P8.
