Austrian GP Day 1: Fans on pole position for a spectacular weekend

The FIA Formula 1 World Championship has arrived at Spielberg with the fan zone having opened today. 

Pitlane Walk & Signing Sessions

Thursday, 1 pm at the Red Bull Ring: The Fan-Zone opened up for the Formula 1 weekend at the Spielberg race track and that means the party has begun. From there it only took two hours for the fans to enter the world of motorsport.

Fans had the exclusive chance to watch the teams in their final preparations for both of Friday’s Free Practice sessions (11am & 3pm) at close quarters. In the Fan-Zone, the next highlight was the signing session by the Formula 1 stars, with drivers starting from Toro Rosso, Mercedes and Ferrari taking part, posing for selfies, shaking hands and signing photos.
