It's time to get excited: Formula 1 is back this weekend. After a long wait, the cars will return to the track this weekend at the Red Bull Ring in Austria for the season opener.

Despite the race being held under somewhat unusual circumstances, with no fans in attendance and strict social distancing measures in place to keep everyone safe, the anticipation is as high as ever for the first race of the season.

The drivers are ready, the teams are prepared and the cars are in the garages just waiting to be fired up and taken out on track for the first time since winter testing back in February.

Will Lewis Hamilton open his title defence with a victory? Can Max Verstappen make it three wins in a row at the Red Bull Ring? We'll soon find out.
