Formula 1 is all set to get an unusual start to its 2020-2021 Season with drivers and cars lining up at Austria’s Red Bull Ring for two races on July 5 and 12.
The go-ahead for the races was given by the Austrian government last month, under the given strict health and safety conditions and mandated teams to undergo regular testing.
This will be for the first time that the small alpine country will be hosting a double-header as F1 tries to make up for the lost races in what is likely to be a disjointed and truncated season with no fans in the stands.
Formula 1 was one of the first major sports hardly hit by the Coronavirus pandemic, with organizers of the Shanghai Grand Prix announcing the postponement of their event set for April, in mid-February amid the rise of the pandemic in China.
