The final part of Formula 1's triple-header takes us to the Red Bull Ring for the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix.

Back-to-back races in Austria means good news for Max Verstappen after his dominant victory last weekend at the Styrian Grand Prix.

The Dutchman extended his championship lead to 18 points, while Red Bull now sits 40 clear of Mercedes at the top of the constructors’ championship.

McLaren is 12 points clear of Ferrari in the race for third-place after Norris continued his impressive run of form last time out, finishing inside the top five for the seventh time in eight races.

It's another chance for George Russell to get off the mark after he was forced to retire early last time out after running comfortably inside the top ten.

The only change for this weekend is Pirelli going a step softer with the tyre allocation.
