About Austrian Grand Prix

The Austrian Grand Prix is a Formula One motor race.

It has been held at two different locations in the Zeltweg area located in Spielberg in southeastern Austria.

It was first held at an airfield there for two years. Then, a permanent race track called the Österreichring was built in 1969 and Formula One first raced there in 1970.

Each subsequent race has been held there in three distinct periods as the circuit has been redeveloped and sold.

Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg was the winner of the 2015 Austrian Grand Prix.
