Formula 1 is back this weekend. The Austrian GP 2021 will take place this weekend at the Red Bull Ring circuit, the same one which saw Max Verstappen triumph last Sunday in the Styrian Grand Prix. The Dutchman is still atop of the Drivers Championship and, after last weekend, is favorite to win again this week.
Red Bull is flying so far, but Checo Pérez couldn’t make it to the podium last time around as Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas finished second and third, respectively. Now the team, led by Christian Horner, has 252 points in the constructor standings.
However, this weekend things could take a turn if the rain appears. Also, all teams have more info and data after the race last weekend, so we can expect a closer result this time. Can Mercedes respond to Red Bull this time? We’ll have to see.
