Austria is set to open the Formula One season with two races on July 5 and 12 after government approval was given.

The country's health ministry gave the green light for both races, which will be held without spectators amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.




The races are due to be held in the village of Spielberg, about 200 kilometres southwest of the capital Vienna.



In a related development, Formula 1 has been given the go-ahead by the UK government to hold two races at Silverstone this summer, BBC Sport has been told.



F1 sources say people involved in elite sports events will be exempt from a requirement on international travellers to self-isolate for 14 days.




Sports will be required to submit and win approval for a detailed plan of their movements and activities.




The government is expected to confirm the move later this month.
