The sprint format returns this weekend for only the second time this season, having previously been employed at Imola. That means qualifying will take place on Friday and determine the starting order for the 100km Sprint on Saturday, the results of which will in turn set the grid for the grand prix.

Due to long straight and limited number of corners, the Austrian GP will play to the strengths of Red Bull, giving the home team an advantage over its chief rival Ferrari.
