After the French Grand Prix, the F1 paddock will head towards the Red Bull Ring in Austria. Furthermore, Red Bull Ring will host back-to-back Grands Prix, just as it did in 2020. However, the first race is titled the Styrian Grand Prix because Red Bull Ring is located in Styria.

F1 fans could be in for a real treat after the entire weekend could be hit by thunderstorms and rain which would just spice up the whole race weekend.

The maximum temperature will reach 26 degrees Celsius or 79 degrees Fahrenheit, while the minimum would be 13 or 55, respectively.

The on-track action begins on Friday and there’s a 90% chance of precipitation during FP1 and FP2. Furthermore, on Saturday and Sunday, there is a probability of rain at 70%.

Rain makes it difficult for the drivers to maneuver their cars and the Red Bull Ring is a short circuit with only ten corners which means F1 fans could witness yet another firecracker of race this weekend.
