The F1 stars cannot wait to hit the Red Bull Ring

On Thursday, all the F1 drivers were at the opening press conference at the Red Bull Ring while the fans got in the mood for the Formula 1 BWT Großer Preis der Steiermark 2021 with the Pit Lane Tour.

Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing go into the back-to-back Grands Prix in Styria with plenty of momentum behind them. With the Dutch driving talent and experienced Mexican Sergio Pérez, the Austrian team is eager to get a home win at Spielberg.

Anyone who wants to secure a ticket still for the race weekend from 25 to 27 June can do that here!


The views from the opening press conference demonstrate just how much the drivers are looking forward to the 2021 Styrian Grand Prix:

Max Verstappen (NED / Red Bull Racing):The two wins at the Red Bull Ring are my highlights, of course. We’ve had a few successful weekends here in the past. That gives no guarantee for this year, of course, but we have a strong car and are highly motivated. The fans all in orange provide a spectacular sight. There will be an incredible backdrop again next week, in particular. This atmosphere is what makes Formula 1 so extraordinary!“

Lewis Hamilton (GBR / Mercedes): “The talks in the factory yesterday were very encouraging. We will give our all again, and we know how strong we are. We hope that we’ll find the right recipe in practice that will take us in the right direction. We’re getting better together all the time. Valtteri is the best team-mate you could possibly imagine – away from the track too.“

Carlos Sainz (ESP / Scuderia Ferrari): “I really like the circuit. There is always good racing here with great battles. It‘s fun for the drivers. The DRS is immense on this course. A lap is short, intensive and a little crazy too with interesting downhill sections. As a driver you can‘t afford to make a mistake here in any single curve.”

Pierre Gasly (FRA / Scuderia AlphaTauri): “I am coming to the Red Bull Ring in a really optimistic mood. The performance was really good at my home race in France. A few little details could have been better, but we are still developing. Red Bull always gives us a special adventure here. We’ve had skydiving before and a flight in an aerobatic plane. There is a new exciting experience every year.”
