The Austrian Grand Prix will certainly remain on the Formula 1 calendar until 2027. The Red Bull Ring, which could accommodate about 60,000 Dutch people during last year’s Grand Prix, has extended its contract with the organization of the sport.

Good news for the Formula 1 team of Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing: the team’s ‘home race’, which Max Verstappen has already won three times, will remain part of the race calendar for the time being. The organization behind the Red Bull Ring extends its contract with Formula 1 until 2027. This year the race will be held ‘in a modern form’ for the tenth time. Formula 1 was not there from 2004 to 2013, but every year since 2014 – and therefore also in the coming years.

The circuit is centrally located in Austria and is reasonably easy to reach from the Netherlands. Partly because of this, it is one of the most popular Formula 1 races for Dutch fans. This has been especially true since Max Verstappen has been there. Last year, some 60,000 Dutch people were present to cheer their compatriot – in vain – as the first across the finish line. After a sprint race win, one of which will also take place in Austria this year, Charles Leclerc Verstappen was too fast in the main race on Sunday.

This led to dissatisfaction among Dutch supporters in particular, after which some misbehaved and were discredited. Formula 1 decided to investigate the inappropriate behavior of the Dutch fans afterwards, but it is not yet known whether this will affect visitors to this year’s race. It will take place on July 2.
