Red Bull ready for a celebration at scenic Spielberg

Red Bull will celebrate their 100th win in Formula One at the Austrian Grand Prix, which will be the first race held in Austria since the death of team owner Dietrich Mateschitz. Max Verstappen, the dominant driver of the season with six wins out of eight races, is the favorite to secure the team’s 101st victory at Spielberg on Sunday. If Verstappen wins, he will become the most successful driver in the history of the Austrian Grand Prix, surpassing Alain Prost’s record of three wins. Verstappen has already won four times at the circuit, including the 2021 Styrian Grand Prix.

Christian Horner, the team boss, expressed his excitement about returning to Austria and the team’s recent success. He expects a large and enthusiastic crowd, making it potentially the biggest event ever held at the circuit. However, there will be increased security measures in place following reports of racist, sexist, and homophobic abuse from spectators last year. Additionally, alcohol will no longer be allowed at the event, and rain is forecasted for Friday and Saturday.

The Austrian Grand Prix is the second sprint race of the season, providing Verstappen with an opportunity to extend his substantial 69-point lead over his teammate Sergio Perez. Last year, Verstappen won the sprint in Austria, but Charles Leclerc of Ferrari emerged victorious on Sunday. Perez’s race ended prematurely due to a collision with George Russell of Mercedes. Ferrari has only achieved one podium finish this season, and their last victory was in Austria in July 2020. In contrast, Red Bull has won 18 out of the 19 races since then, with Mercedes securing the remaining victory.

Mercedes is aiming to capitalize on their recent momentum, with Lewis Hamilton finishing third in Canada. The team expects their car to perform better in Austria. Fernando Alonso of Aston Martin is hoping to secure his seventh podium appearance in nine races, while McLaren and Alpine (owned by Renault) are also striving for improved competitiveness. McLaren’s team principal, Andrea Stella, has announced a major overhaul of the car, with further upgrades planned for Silverstone and Hungary.

Williams will introduce upgrades that were previously only available to Alex Albon in Canada, where he finished seventh. Albon believes that the track in Austria will suit their car, especially considering the sprint format and the possibility of rain.

In conclusion, Red Bull is poised to celebrate their 100th win in Formula One at the Austrian Grand Prix. Max Verstappen is the favorite to secure the victory and become the most successful driver in the history of the event. The race will be held amidst increased security measures and without alcohol. Mercedes, Ferrari, Aston Martin, McLaren, and Alpine are all aiming for strong performances, with various upgrades and improvements planned for their cars. Williams will also introduce upgrades that could enhance their performance on the track.
