Austrian Grand Prix 2024: Race start time UK, grid positions, weather and how to watch F1 on TV today

Max Verstappen will attempt to win the Austrian Grand Prix for the fifth time in seven years this afternoon.

The 11th round of the 2024 Formula One Championship heads to Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, with a sizeable 69-point lead for Verstappen over Lando Norris in the standings.

Norris has finished second in three of the four races since his maiden F1 victory as rivals chip away at Red Bull’s advantage.

Verstappen had not managed to claim pole position in any of the last three grands prix but has ended that brief barren run this weekend.

Lance Stroll and Pierre Gasly will also be out to justify their new contracts, awarded this week at Aston Martin and Alpine respectively.

When is the Austrian Grand Prix?

The Austrian Grand Prix will be held today, Sunday June 30, with the race starting at 2pm BST.
