Sunday’s season-opening race at the Red Bull Ring is actually the first of an Austrian doubleheader to begin F1’s condensed 2020 schedule, as the 4.318-kilometer track in Austria will host another F1 race next weekend. The 8 races currently confirmed on F1’s 2020 schedule are packed into a 9-wk frame, all 8 races will take place in Europe.
As for Sunday’s Austrian Grand Prix, with a start time of 9:05a EDT on ESPN, the Red Bull Ring is an ideal track for the F1 season-opener.
The 10-turn course is on the smaller side in terms of distance, but the terrain makes for a wide variety of challenges in a short lap. Plus, the mountainous scenery around the track is something to behold.
Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton is the favorite for Sunday’s F1 race followed by Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc on the odds board.

Our overall technical outlook is Bullish in here, as all Key indicators are Bullish to Very Bullish as it approaches its all time highs at 179.21 marked on 18 February 2020.

Ferrari will continue to create value in the long term. Ferrari is a quality 1st long term luxury products investment, and I have called it at it at 200+/share long term, adjusting it to 200/share short term (after the virus) and siding with BAML to 230 long term for now. The stock is now considered defensive in the sector.
Enjoy the Racing and have a Happy Star Spangled Weekend
