The heavily-delayed 2020 Formula One season gets underway this weekend, four months later than scheduled following the coronavirus pandemic.
The calendar will be like no other before it, with double-headers in both Austria and Britain – and likely the Middle East once the remainder of the schedule is confirmed – with eight European races kicking things off.
Teams will keep themselves in safety bubbles, with even smaller bio-secure bubbles within each garage to try and minimise any spread of coronavirus once the season is up and running.
And should all things go smoothly, there will be enough races this season to form a full world championship, with up to 15 races planned for the second half of 2020.
The action begins at the Red Bull Ring this weekend, which could put reigning champions Mercedes at an early disadvantage given that not only does it belong to one of their main rivals, but has been one of their worst-performing destinations in recent years.
When is it?
The Austrian Grand Prix takes place across 3-5 July 2020.
What time does each session start?
