Max Verstappen admits that there is no let up at Red Bull as they continue to seek improvements on this year's car, rather than looking towards 2022.
Verstappen leads the Drivers' Championship by 12 points over Lewis Hamilton going into this weekend's Styrian GP and is looking to extend his advantage.
"Everyone at the track and in the factory is working flat out and now we just need to keep pushing to win more races this year," Verstappen told the press.
"We are seeing that every race weekend is different in terms of competitiveness and you never know where you stand until you’re out on track. You never know what the others are capable of."
Verstappen has won twice at the Red Bull ring and is expecting another close affair, even if rain plays a part which early weather forecasts seems to suggest will be the case.
"I’m really looking forward to Austria because of course it’s like a home Grand Prix and the opportunity to have two races makes it even better," said Verstappen.
"It’s always nice to race here and we’ve had good results at the Red Bull Ring but nothing is ever guaranteed. We have to again set up the car well there, read the conditions and react to them.
"I don’t know what the weather will be like but for sure I’m expecting it to be close again. We’ll find out when we get there but hopefully we can have two very good weekends."
