Austrian Grand Prix 2020: F1 schedule, UK times and how to watch

F1 is back and continuing on the fashion they ended 2019, Mercedes dominated qualifying at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg. However, it wasn’t Lewis Hamilton who scored pole position but his teammate Valtteri Bottas in the new black-clad Mercedes for 2020. Considering Bottas strong form at the Austrian track over the past few years, while Hamilton has only won one race their since it came back on the schedule, the flying Fin would be favourite to take victory here. Red Bull’s Verstappen ended up in third, followed by Mclaren’s Lando Norris and Alexander Albon in the other Red Bull. Ferrari have a weekend to forget, with Charles Leclerc in seventh and the outgoing Sebastian Vettel all the way back in eleventh.
