2014 Austrian Grand Prix: setting
While Austria has long been a motor racing stronghold, it hasn’t always hosted the Grand Prix. The last F1 GP took place in 2003, when Michael Schumacher claimed a new course record. A decade later, the Austrian Grand Prix is set to be reborn for 2014 at the Red Bull Ring. The track follows the same layout as the A1-Ring, as the circuit was previously known, characterised by long, sweeping corners and a tight midsection.
