The Red Bull Ring is a world-class road course located in Spielberg, Styria, Austria, two hours southwest of Vienna. It has been a staple part of the Formula 1 calendar several times, hosting The Austrian Grand Prix from 1970 to 1986, 1997 to 2003, and from 2014 to the present day. It used to be called the Österreichring (the Austrian Circuit), but after intensive safety enhancements in the nineties lead by track architect Hermann Tilke, it changed its name to A1-ring. Another renovation took place in 2011 after the circuit's purchase by the Austrian energy drink company Red Bull, which gave it its current name.
The Red Bull Ring starts on an uphill straightaway going into a 90-degrees turn one, known as Nikki Lauda Kurve. After this, another long, high-speed straightaway comes, this time going downhill at a whooping 250 km/h (155 mph) and ending abruptly in Remus, a close-angle right-hander with ample runoffs. The third high-speed straightaway of the circuits comes next, ending at Schlossgold and leading into a set of fast downhill sweepers from turn five to turn nine. Rindt and Red Bull Mobile, the last two corners of the circuit, form a semi-rectangle shape that flows into the front straight, closing the loop of this stunning racetrack.
