Before the Formula 1 circus makes its belated appearance at the Red Bull Ring this weekend, spare a couple of minutes to go and view some onboard footage from the circuit that was there before, the original Osterreichring, or Zeltweg as it was often known. Such footage as there is dates from the ‘70s and ’80s where drivers had to have bulky cameras mounted, so no-one’s truly flying, so just look at the circuit instead, and imagine a track like that in modern Formula 1 today. It would be impossible.
