With the F1 calendar currently in the midst of a triple-header, the drivers and teams will need to put the events from Paul Ricard as the season descends upon the Styrian foothills in Austria.
Max Verstappen has been in dominant form of late with the Dutchman unfortunate to have not claimed a hattrick of victories over the past three races. His rival Lewis Hamilton has conversely seen his fortunes take a turn for the worse as the seven-time world champion seems to be feeling the pressure of playing a hunter for the first time in close five years.
The British driver can take solace in the fact that he won the race last year with Bottas making it a one-two for Mercedes. Verstappen was third though given that this is Red Bull's home event, the Dutchman will want to improve beyond just claiming the final step of the podium.
