If you enjoyed the Austrian Grand Prix, then you're in luck as Formula 1 will once again be racing on the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria this weekend and we have all the details on how you can watch the 2020 Stryian Grand Prix on TV or online.
Formula 1 was forced to change its schedule for the 2020 season as a result of the pandemic which is why, for the first time ever, it will be holding two different grands prix at the same race track back-to-back. Since every grand prix must have its own name, it was decided that the second race held at the Red Bull Ring would be called the Stryian Grand Prix and the name comes from the region in Austria around the city of Graz where the event will be held.
The Red Bull Ring has 10 turns and a circuit length of 2.683 miles. The race will consist of 71 laps and drivers will cover just over 190 miles before completing the race. Additionally, each driver will only get two sets of hard tires, three sets of medium tires and four sets of soft tires at every race weekend for the first eight grand prix of the 2020 Formula 1 season.
Normally the previous race wouldn't be such an important factor but since the Austrian Grand Prix was also held at the Red Bull Ring, all eyes will likely be on Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas at the Stryian Grand Prix as he finished first last weekend. Will Bottas be the first Formula 1 driver to win back-to-back grands prix at the same circuit?
Whether you're a die-hard Formula 1 fan following the start of the 2020 season like a hawk or just want to tune in to see all the action at the Red Bull Ring this weekend, we'll show you exactly how to watch the Stryian Grand Prix on TV or online from anywhere in the world.
