Austrian Grand Prix F1 Live stream and Telecast: Formula 1 is about to get started with the first race weekend of the season.
The start of the 2020 F1 season had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It will finally take off this weekend, with the Austrian Grand Prix.
The originally scheduled first race of the season at Australia was cancelled after a staffer from McLaren showed positive signs of the virus. This resulted in a long sabbatical for the fastest professional sport in the world.
The Formula One Management (FOM) have done a terrific job of bringing F1 back, with 8 races confirmed, and more to follow.

Apart from this, all members of the F1 teams are expected to follow the guidelines and protocols laid down by the FIA. The traditional podium ceremony and the drivers’ parade will not take place too.
Lewis Hamilton, on his part, will take a knee in Austria to support diversity in Formula One. He will also be defending his title crown, with strong competition expected from Ferrari and Red Bull.
