The Austrian government has given the green light to start the season at the Red Bull Ring, where the first two races of the year will take place between 5 and 12 July.

After weeks of discussions between local authorities, Formula 1 and the bosses of the Red Bull Ring racetrack in Spielberg, Austria, a safety plan was adopted to carry out the races despite the corona virus pandemic.

Confirmation comes just days before Formula One is set to announce official plans for the European part of the season, and according to local media reports, even a limited number of spectators are allowed to watch the race. An additional 500 people are being talked about, but the details are not yet known.

Ross Brawn has announced that they will create a kind of “biosphere” in the paddock in which the team staff will be isolated from outside visitors. All those who arrive in Austria will first have to take a test for the SARS-Cov-2 virus, and are expected to travel to the racetrack on charter flights that will land at a military airport near the racetrack. On the racetrack, the teams will be isolated from each other in specially prepared rooms.

If the races in Austria are successful, the season will continue without a break next weekend, on July 19 at the Hungarian Hungaroring.
