The AF Corse-run Red Bull team arrives at its home event as one of the favourites following Alex Albon's stunning victory at the Nurburgring last time out. His teammate Liam Lawson drew a duck in Germany but all signs suggest he will bounce back strongly in Austria.

DTM race winner Lucas Auer will also be in the limelight as the only full-time Austrian driver on the grid in 2021 following the departures of Philipp Eng and Ferdinand Habsburg.

The 26-year-old has returned to the Mercedes fold this season after spending a year away in the BMW camp. He notched up a podium finish in the opening round of the season at Monza and currently sits eighth in the championship on 50 points.

Christian Klien, who is contesting a part season campaign with McLaren, will skip the race to complete his TV duties with ServusTV.

This weekend marks Austria's return to the DTM calendar for the first time in three years, with the Red Bull Ring having last staged a round of the series in 2018.
