Austrian Grand Prix 2021

What time does the 2021 Austrian GP start and how to watch it

The 2021 Formula 1 season continues this weekend with the ninth race of the year, the Austrian Grand Prix. Here is everything you need to know about what time the race starts, where to watch it live, and more.

The 2021 Austrian Grand Prix will represent the final leg in F1's on going triple-header. The Red Bull Ring will once again play host to the ninth round this year and with Max Verstappen and Red Bull winning the Styrian Grand Prix so comprehensively, the smart money will be on the duo to secure their third consecutive win on the trot.

That being said Verstappen and Red Bull will face some stiff competition in the form of Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes with the pair hoping to arrest the momentum that their title rivals have built over the past few races.

Elsewhere on the grid, Lando Norris claimed yet another fifth place for McLaren, meaning the Woking-based team stays third in the Constructor's Championship. However with Ferrari drivers Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc breathing down the British driver's neck, the difference between the two teams stands at 12 points.

Another driver to look out for will be Williams' George Russell. The Mercedes junior was having a stellar weekend until a mechanical gremlin forced him to retire from the race and the 2018 F2 champion will surely be in the running to score his first points for Williams this weekend.

When is the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix?

The 2021 Austrian Grand Prix will kick off on July 2 with the weekend following the traditional schedule of having two practice sessions on Friday.

Saturday, July 3 will see an additional practice session take place in the morning before the drivers make their qualifying runs in the afternoon.

The Grand Prix will get underway on Sunday, July 4 with the drivers set to duke it out around the 4.3 km track for 71 laps in what is essentially a rehash of last weekend's format.

What time is the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix?

The First Practice session will start at 11.30 pm local time (10.30 am U.K.) with the Second Practice session starting at 3.00 pm local time (2.00 pm U.K.), both sessions will run an hour long.

The Third Practice session (which once again runs an hour-long) on Saturday will go green at 12.00 pm local time (11.00 am U.K.) with the weekend's qualifying session taking place at 3.00 pm local time (2.00 pm U.K.).

The actual race will be flagged off at 3.00 pm local time (2.00 pm U.K.) A comprehensive list of the timezones can be viewed below

How many laps is the Austrian Grand Prix?

The 2021 Austrian Grand Prix will consist of 71 laps and will cover a distance of 306.452 kilometers.

The race should not cross the two-hour mark though this is contingent on factors such as Safety Cars, weather conditions, and Red Flags.

What does the championship look like?

Verstappen and Red Bull both extended their lead in the Drivers and Constructor's championships respectively. The Dutchman currently leads the standings accumulating 156 points after the first eight races, leading Hamilton by 18 points.

Verstappen's teammate Sergio Perez is currently third with Norris in fourth and Bottas in fifth. Ferrari duo Leclerc and Sainz are sixth and seventh respectively with AlphaTauri driver Pierre Gasly, McLaren's Daniel Ricciardo, and Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel rounding out the top 10.

In terms of the team standings, Red Bull lead Mercedes by 40 points, with McLaren, Ferrari, and AlphaTauri making the top five so far.
