Latest weather forecast for the 2022 F1 Austrian GP

The 2022 Austrian GP is due to be run between July 8-10 at the Red Bull Ring and the latest weather forecast predicts a damp day on Sunday


After what was arguably the best race of the season, the Formula 1 circus now heads to Spielberg for the 2022 Austrian Grand Prix for what could be yet another wet weekend.

Carlos Sainz ultimately prevailed during an electric British Grand Prix, which had a little bit of everything. While the Spanish driver claimed his first win in the sport, Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton is also starting to find meaning that this weekend’s race could possibly see a three-way duel between Red Bull, Ferrari, and Mercedes.

The Red Bull Ring has proved to be a happy hunting ground for Red Bull in the past with Max Verstappen winning four of the last six races at the venue (Styrian Grand Prix included). And with the Dutchman having a sub-par race in Britain, Verstappen will be looking to return to winning ways at a circuit he clearly loves racing on.

The weekend will also play host to the second Sprint Race of the season, adding a further variable to what should be a very exciting weekend of racing.

However, much like the British Grand Prix, the weather looks unpredictable heading into the weekend, meaning fans could be treated to another cracking race in as many weeks.
