Formula One's truncated coronavirus-hit season will finally get underway with the Austrian Grand Prix on 5 July, the Austrian government announced on Saturday.

The Spielberg circuit has also been given the green light to stage a second race the following weekend.

"The two Formula One races on 5 and 12 July at Spielberg will be staged without spectators," said the Austrian Health Minister.

He added that the two races had been given the green light after F1 organisers "had presented a complete and professional plan" to combat the spread of Covid-19.
