On the second Formula 1 weekend of 2021, access roads to the Red Bull Ring and most of the main traffic routes in Austria are not expected to experience any problems. Planing your route carefully in advance can save a lot of time, however. The Ö3 traffic service and others will keep you up to date on the latest traffic situation.

The following routes are recommended for arrival

  • Vienna / East Austria: S6 – St. Michael interchange – S36
  • Graz / South Styria A9 – Gleinalm tunnel – St. Michael interchange – S36

In the pit radio section you will be kept informed about the latest traffic news over the entire race weekend via Ö3. You can find further information on the App here!

2. An early journey is advised – follow the traffic management system to reach the car parks

A traffic management system with signs along the arrival routes will make your journey to the car park easier. Depending on the colour of their Formula 1 ticket, fans will be directed by LED signs from the motorway to the car parks, which are located within walking distance of the circuit. Should the latest traffic situation make these approach roads unusable, visitors must follow the instructions provided. Visitors should note their car park number to be on the safe side. You can find detailed information on journeys here!
