The 2021 Formula 1 championship is to descend on the Red Bull Ring as the circuit will play host to the second ever Styrian Grand Prix.

With Max Verstappen and Red Bull gaining an upper hand over their rivals Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes during the past few races, the added home advantage provided by racing in Styrian mountain ranges in Austria should give them some added motivation.

The French Grand Prix also saw McLaren reclaim third place in the Constructor's standings from Ferrari. With Lando Norris finishing third at last year's Styrian Grand Prix, the Woking-based outfit should be in bouyant sprits heading into the second part of the ongoing triple header.
