With the Australian Grand Prix called off at the 11th hour and several other races, including the Monaco Grand Prix, cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, F1 has drafted the first part of the revised 2020 calendar.

This would see the series travelling to Austria for back-to-back rounds, starting with this weekend's season opener at the Red Bull.

Hungary will host the third round of the season later this month, followed by another double header at Silverstone in the UK in August. 

The fifth round will be held at the Barcelona circuit in Spain on August 13-16, while Belgium and Italy will host races on consecutive weeks in late August/early September.

As for this weekend's Austrian Grand Prix, Mercedes locked out the front row of the grid, with Valtteri Bottas qualifying on pole ahead of teammate Lewis Hamilton. Red Bull driver Max Verstappen was Mercedes' closest challenger in third, while Lando Norris will line up fourth on the grid for McLaren.
