For the first time in Formula 1 history, two successive races in the world championship are being held on the same circuit.
Following on from last weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix, the Red Bull Ring near Spielberg now hosts the Styrian Grand Prix.
Mercedes were the fastest last weekend, with Valtteri Bottas winning from pole position.
And in a rain-affected qualifying on Saturday, teammate and reigning champion Lewis Hamilton surged to pole position, beating nearest rival Max Verstappen by over a second.
Last week's race winner Bottas lines up fourth, just behind McLaren's Carlos Sainz who put in a superb lap to qualify third.
But it was a miserable Saturday for Ferrari's Charles Leclerc who could only manage 11th, one place behind teammate Sebastian Vettel.
As with all other European F1 races, lights out will be at 2.10pm.
It’s not the first race around the track that day though.
First up is Formula 3 at 8.45am, which is a 28-lap race.
After that the 28-lap Formula 2 Sprint Race takes place at 10.10am, featuring drivers looking to make the leap into F1 such as Mick Schumacher, son of legendary seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher.
As with all F1 races, except the British Grand Prix, the only way fans can watch the race live is on Sky Sports F1.
Coverage begins at 12.30pm, 100 minutes before lights out at 2.10pm. Sky Sports will also show the F2 and F3 races live.
Those with Sky Sports F1 can also stream it through Sky Go or Now TV.
F1 fans without Sky can watch extended highlights on Channel 4 from 6.30pm-9pm.
