2021 Formula 1 Styrian Grand Prix session timings and preview

Formula 1 travels to Austria this weekend for the first of the two races at the Red Bull Ring. Here's the full schedule for the Styrian Grand Prix.

2021 Formula 1 Styrian Grand Prix session timings and preview

The Red Bull Ring is holding a double header for the second time in as many years due to the cancellation of the Turkish Grand Prix - itself a replacement event for the cancelled Canadian Grand Prix.

In contrast to last season, the first race will run under the Styrian Grand Prix banner on June 25-28, followed by the Austrian Grand Prix on July 2-4.

Red Bull head to its home races on the back of a trio of successes n Monaco, Azerbaijan and Baku, giving it a handsome lead over Mercedes in the standings.

However, the Milton Keynes outfit must be wary of the fact that the German manufacturer won both races in Austria last year, with Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton scoring a victory apiece.

The nature of the Austrian circuit will serve as an important indicator of the relative performances of Mercedes and Red Bull's engines, after Toto Wolff stated that Honda has made a "huge step forward" with its power unit.

Christian Horner has since dismissed Wolff's claims, saying homologation rules does not allow it to make this kind of progress during the season.
