Formula 1 has reached an agreement with the organization behind the Austrian Grand Prix. The race will remain on the F1 calendar until at least 2027. Both sides announced the decision on Wednesday.
The Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg has been on the program since 2014. Last year the race was sold out with more than 300,000 spectators over the different days.
This year the Grand Prix will take place on July 2. World champion Max Verstappen will again be able to count on a lot of support from the enthusiastic public. Austria is a home game for its Red Bull team. Just like last year, there will also be a sprint race in Spielberg.
In recent years, F1 has increasingly moved away from Europe, including three Grand Prix in the United States. However, the link with Red Bull ensures that Austria does not have to worry. The Grand Prix of Belgium, this year on July 30 at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, does not yet know whether it can continue in the coming years.
