Formula One is heading into the 11th race of the 2022 season which will take place in Spielberg, Austria. This Grand Prix takes place on The Red Bull Ring circuit, owned by Red Bull. It consists of 71 laps for a total of 306.452 km (190.42 miles). There will be qualifying on Friday and a sprint qualifying on Saturday to determine the race order on Sunday. Red Bull Racing’s own, Max Verstappen, has dominated this race in recent years winning three of the last four races here.

The weather obviously plays a huge factor in Formula One on race day but also during qualifying and practice rounds. Heading into the weekend it looks like a cloudy weekend but the track should be dry for Friday’s qualifying, Saturday’s sprint qualifying, and the race on Sunday.
