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

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.
