Runs into the world championship Lilmore Formula 1 The Red Bull team, led by Dutchman Max Verstappen, will race the Austrian Grand Prix on the fourth of next July, and is a strong candidate to beat Mercedes and British world champion Lewis Hamilton.
The competitors arrive in Austria for two prizes in a row at the “Spielberg” circuit, the first in the name of Styria and the second in Austria. This comes after the cancellation of the Canada and Turkey prizes due to the repercussions of the Corona pandemic, and it is a good occasion for Red Bull to strengthen its leadership in the ranking of manufacturers and drivers.
Red Bull has a 36-point advantage over Mercedes with the constructors, as well as a top speed on the straights, which was evident on Paul Ricard’s last track, leaving Hamilton and his team to try to heal the wounds in the final laps.
For his part, Hamilton seeks not to slip into a series of four races without winning, for the first time since 2016, when he ended his season without winning the world championship.
In the last French Grand Prix, the Mercedes team was relatively reassured, with Hamilton second and Bottas fourth, after a disappointing journey in Monaco and Azerbaijan, where Hamilton finished seventh and fifteenth, respectively, while Bottas withdrew and then finished twelfth.
