Styrian Grand Prix qualifying – Start time, how to watch, channel & more
Red Bull Ring will host the second round of the 2020 Formula 1 season under the Styrian Grand Prix banner. Here's how you can watch qualifying in your country.
Following a successful season opener in Spielberg, Formula 1 will make a second visit to the Austrian venue this weekend.
Mercedes is the favourite for pole position once again, having locked out the front row of the grid last weekend - although Lewis Hamilton was later demoted to fourth after being found guilty of ignoring yellow flags on his flying lap.
Red Bull is expected to be Mercedes' closest challenger, while both Racing Point and McLaren will be eyeing a top-five starting position.
