Austrian Grand Prix--Hospitality and Tickets--Graz--Red Bull Ring Transfer


Red Bull is considered one of the most dynamic and successful sponsors of Formula 1 over the past five years. They have built the Red Bull Ring like good all Austrians the the best grand stands and hospitality units. When you think about Red Bull, you think of sports that are on the edge - they are a company that knows how to play while getting the job done and in Austria they have built the biggest playground of all, the Red Bull Ring.

"Forget everything you`ve known before," was the advice of one leading F1 team strategist on the morning of the 2016 Austrian Grand Prix. The combination of much cooler temperatures on race day, combined with a lack of knowledge about how the soft tyres in particular would perform in the race, meant that many teams were going into the dark on Sunday.

In those circumstances, Race Strategy was always going to be critical to the outcome of the race, but the winners and losers were the ones who had hedged their bets and were most adaptable during the race.
And it was varying strategies that led to the race`s main talking point, the last lap collision between the Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

With great racing in the air, start planning your vacation now and join us for the Red Bull party of the year!

RACE OVERVIEW

Austrian Grand Prix
In the 1950`s enthusiasts created a track at Zeltweg airport in Spielberg. The track had bumpy runways marked out by straw bales and cones, typical of many tracks in Europe at that time. By the late fifties the track attracted races for international sports cars and a couple of Formula Two Champions rounds. However Formula one was the goal and they organized a non championship F1 race in the early nineteen sixties, with the inaugural Austrian Grand Prix taking place one year later. Although the race was a success the track was declared too bumpy and dangerous.

Austrian driver Jochen Rindt was making his way through the Formula One ranks and by the late sixties had gained super star status as the number one driver for Colin Chapman`s Team Lotus. Formula One and Jochen Rindt had become increasingly popular in Austria and a new track was built in a natural basin within the scenic Styria Mountains near Zeltweg, named the Osterreichring. The second Austrian Grand Prix for Formula One Championship took place at the super-fast circuit in 1970 and continued until 1987 when the turbo-powered cars produced 1,100 bhp and lapped at 159 mph in qualifying. The FIA declared it as too fast so the circuit was deemed out of date for the turbo era

By 1997 the track was re-built by Herman Tilke to more modern standards and renamed the A1-Ring. It lasted six years, but after receiving negative publicity in the 2002 race when Rubens Barrichello ceded the race to Michael Schumacher on team orders. For 2003 the crowds dropped dramatically and the 2004 race was cancelled. Red Bull bought the track and redesigned it as the Red Bull Ring bringing the race back in 2014.
