Ferrari needed a response to Red Bulls six consecutive wins, but they didn’t make things easy for themselves at a thrilling British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Formula 1 now moves onto the Red Bull Ring in Austria where the top three teams could be closer in performance due to the layout of the circuit.
There were big crashes, stunning overtakes and plenty of ups and downs at Silverstone, so the Austrian Grand Prix has big shows to follow. With Carlos Sainz getting his first win at the expense of teammate Charles Leclerc, could there be cracks emerging with the Prancing Horses?
Red Bull suffered bad luck in the last race but will want to dominate at their home race, while Mercedes looked closer to the front than they’ve been so far, but was that a case of Silverstone being a good fit for their ‘diva’ of a car?
We’ll find out all these answers and more as F1 goes on a European tour before the summer break. If you’re looking to catch the action this weekend, here’s how to watch the Austrian F1 Grand Prix on TV and online.
