The Austrian Grand Prix has now been rescheduled as the first race of the 2020 F1 calendar. It will take place at the Red Bull ring in Spielberg. Free practice will take place on the 3rd and 4th of July, and the race itself on the 5th. Austrian Grand Prix 2020 special bets consider how the race may play out, now the season has finally returned.
A restart to racing will happen in Europe through July, August and early September. The first races of the season will, unfortunately, take place without fans, but the sport is hopeful the crowds will be able to return for later races. There will also be extensive changes to the original 2020 schedule in order to allow for other races which have been postponed.
Mercedes or Ferrari seen as favourites to take the win
Many race fans will already be aware of odds for bets such as who’s the top tip for pole. You can check various online gambling sites in Austria to see what variations there may be. If Ferrari get some form together, look out for Charles Leclerc – 22bet sportsbook are giving him odds of 4.0. Austria is one of his favorite tracks and he has taken pole position in both GP3 and F2 here. After regaining confidence in France, could he secure a second career pole in Austria? Bottas 5.0 and Hamilton 2.8 of Mercedes are at level pegging for pole positions at the Red Bull Ring with two each, but Bottas has arguably the more impressive qualifying record here. He also started on the front row for Williams in 2014, missing out on his first pole by a mere 0.087s.
And which team are good for the win? It’s true that Mercedes have dominated the race here since the track returned to the calendar in 2014. 2019 Austrian Grand Prix Mercedes 1-2 Finish showed just how strongly the team were favoured at last year’s event. But after nine races, could this change? The Scuderia lose out to Mercedes the most in slow speed corners – but analysis suggests that in medium and fast corners, and down the straights, Ferrari has an advantage. The first half of the Red Bull ring consists of three power-rewarding straights, while the second is a mixture of low and medium-speed turns. If Ferrari can maximize their power in the first part of the lap, it could be down to nip and tuck between them and Mercedes in the second.
