F1: Spielberg protagonist in the second Austrian GP of the season
Updated: Oct 6
After Red Bull's victory in the Styrian Grand Prix, F1 repeats for a new appointment in Austria at the Spielberg circuit.
After the domination of the two top teams this season, will there also be room for Ferrari and McLaren? We will find out step by step in the three days dedicated to the Austrian Grand Prix, including free practice, qualifying and the race, to be followed strictly with our bookmakers.
A WEEK AGO ...
The "Red Bull Ring", before last Saturday had never seen a pole of the home team. But in a season where Verstappen is leaving everyone speechless, even this taboo is blown. Red Bull dominated Q1, Q2 and Q3, with the practice in the middle which saw Perez excel. In the race, Verstappen practically dominated from start to finish, putting Hamilton, Bottas and his Mexican team-mate behind him. Fourth victory, 3 in the last 4 races for the Dutchman, who reached +18 over the world champion in the drivers' standings.
After years of Mercedes-Hamilton domination, with the Ferrari of the then Cavallino Vettel, which had only managed to cope with two half seasons, Red Bull seems to have managed to reach the same level as the silver arrows. Now the dilemma is: Will Verstappen be able to keep his head cold and his heart warm until the end? Often in his young career Max has done harakiri several times because of his impetus. Now he has to prove that he has made the definitive leap in quality to counter Hamilton's inevitable reaction.
AUSTRIAN GRAND PRIX QUALIFICATIONS, OUR FORECASTS WITH RABONA
Three pole positions each for Verstappen and Hamilton this season but for the encore on the Austrian track (mix of fast sections, technical corners and braking) the more than 2 tenths of an advantage in Q3 a week ago were definitely taken into consideration by the quotes by Rabona. In fact, traders favor the Red Bull leader at 1.60 to win the official qualification again with Hamilton at 3.25. Bottas 10 and Perez 12 close the circle of the first in the antepost list.
UNPREDICTABLE SUNDAY WITH RISK OF RAIN
The odds for Sunday's race are very similar, but it could have a variable capable of disrupting all the cards on the table. In fact, the main weather forecast sites give rain from 2pm onwards. This is why Verstappen's 1.65 on Rabona website followed by Hamilton's 2.75 could overturn or even see other protagonists enter the lot of contenders for first place, from Norris to Gasly, from Leclerc to Sainz just to name the most credible. After all, with a high risk of 71 laps all wet, accidents, pit stops and the attitude of the individual drivers will all be determining factors.
