The rivalry between the Dutch Max verstappen (Red Bull), leader of the F1 World Championship, and the English seven-time world champion Lewis hamilton (Mercedes), second 12 points behind the previous one; the heat wave that hits Styria – with the risk of storms-; and the still rigid sanitary measures prevail in the Red Bull Ring (Austria), venue of the next two races and which this week they will access until 15,000 viewers per day.
Due to two cancellations, those of Canada -initially- and those of Turkey -which had replaced the previous one-, Austria returns to ‘double’ tests. And both this week and next there will be races on the circuit owned by the team that leads the two World Cups, the drivers -with Verstappen- and the teams: thanks also to the contribution of Mexican Sergio Pérez. Third in the individual general.
