Formula 1 Austrian Grand Prix – How to watch, start time & more

The Red Bull Ring plays host to the Austrian Grand Prix this Sunday. Here's how you can watch the main race in your country.

Max Verstappen, Red Bull Racing RB16B

Max Verstappen starts Red Bull's home event from pole position, hoping to extend the team's winning streak to five races.

McLaren driver Lando Norris will line up alongside the Dutchman on the front row following an excellent qualifying session, where he ended up just 0.048s off the ultimate pace.

Sergio Perez will start third on the grid ahead of Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, the former having just signed a new two-year contract with the German manufacturer that guarantees his stay in F1 until the end of the 2023 season.

AlphaTauri impressed again in qualifying, with Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda finishing sixth and seventh respectively.

But George Russell was the real star of the show on Saturday, grabbing what turned out to be the eight spot on the grid for Williams.
