The Formula 1 2021 campaign continues its course today with the eighth Grand Prix Race of the year at Circuit de Styrian. The Styrian Grand Prix is a scheduled Formula One race at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria, today, June 27, 2021. The race will be the eighth round of the 2021 Formula One World Championship, and only the second Grand Prix of Styria.
It was called after Styria, the Austrian region where the circuit is located. The inaugural race took place in 2020. Despite the fact that the Styrian Grand Prix was originally planned to be a one-off event in 2020, it will return in 2021 as the eighth round of the championship to replace the Turkish Grand Prix, which was postponed owing to travel restrictions imposed by the continuing COVID-19 epidemic.
Lewis Hamilton holds the record for most wins (1), while Mercedes with one win are the track constructors' leaders. As the Styrian Grand Prix is getting closer, let's take a look at the date, time, and TV channel in the US.
