All eyes are on the Austrian Grand Prix as far as Formula 1 is concerned. While Red Bull’s Max Verstappen will be aiming to continue his winning run at this home race after having bested Lewis Hamilton in back to back races to take a significant lead in the drivers’ championships. However, the reigning world champion is clearly capable of coming back to the winning track with his Mercedes W12 clearly improved. All the team would now be working at a strategy good enough to keep Hamilton’s competitors at bay.
On current form, Red Bull looks like one of the better teams in this competition. While their Honda-powered RB16B hasn’t just matched the W12, it has even surpassed it in several parameters to become the championship leading car. If the car continues to perform similarly, there is every reason to believe that Verstappen could finally become the world champion.
Venue: Red Bull Ring, Styria, Austria
