Styrian GP - Track Guide

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the Styrian GP, officially the Formula 1 BWT Grosser Preis Steiermark 2021.


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.
