Round nine of Formula One 2018 takes place this weekend at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria.
Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes took the chequered flag here last year, and was joined on the podium by Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull in second and third respectively, with Bottas’ teammate and eventual champion Lewis Hamilton having to settle for fourth.
Mercedes have dominated proceedings at this track in recent years, with wins from Lewis Hamilton in 2016, and Nico Rosberg in the two years prior to that.
All five sessions – practices, qualifying and the race – will be shown live on Channel 4 and Sky Sports F1.
