Get ready for the return of Formula 1

  • Published: 30 June 2020

It’s been a long time coming for Formula 1 fans as this weekend sees the return of the Grand Prix to our TV screens. 

Held behind closed doors, the much anticipated season begins in Austria with live coverage from the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg. 

The action gets started on Friday 3rd July with Practice 1 and 2, followed by Practice 3 and Qualifying on Saturday 4th July, ahead of the main race at 1pm on Sunday 5th July. 

With everything to race for, the 2020 season looks set to be dominated by driver rivalries following a series of shake ups since the sport went into lockdown nearly four months ago. 

The 2019 Formula 1 World Championship was won by Lewis Hamilton and he’ll without doubt be looking to hang onto his crown for yet another season.

Snapping at his heels were Valtteri Bottas and Charles Leclerc who won’t be keen to sit in the shadows again this year. 

So with lots of change happening over the last few months, it’s time to play catch up. Here’s a snapshot of who’s driving for who in 2020…

  • Racing for Mercedes is Lewis Hamilton and his teammate Valtteri Bottas.
  • Racing for McLaren is Carlos Sainz and his teammate Lando Norris. 
  • On the Red Bull Racing team is Max Verstappen and his teammate Alexander Albon.
  • Racing for Ferrari is Sebastian Vettel and his teammate Charles Leclerc. 
  • Racing for Williams is George Russel and his teammate Nicholas Latifi. 
  • Racing for the Haas F1 Team is Romain Grosjean and his teammate Kevin Magnussen.
  • On the Alfa Romeo Racing Team is Kimi Räikönnen and his teammate Antonio Giovinazzi. 
  • Racing for Renault is Daniel Ricciardo and his teammate Esteban Ocon. 
  • Racing for AlphaTauri is Pierre Gasly and his teammate Daniil Kyvat.
  • On the Racing Point team is Sergio Perez and his teammate Lance Stroll.   

Max Vertsappen won the Austrian Grand Prix last year which begs the question; who will be celebrating on the winners podium this weekend?

Tune in on Sunday to find out - we can’t wait!
