The Formula 1 caravan moves to Austria this weekend and the Red Bull Ring where Max Verstappen is a favourite to extend his lead at the top of the Drivers Championship Standings.
There is no time for the drivers to recover from what was a thrilling British Grand Prix last week with Carlos Sainz getting the victory in his Ferrari ahead of the Red Bull of Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton completed the podium in his Mercedes. Unlucky rider of the race was surely Max Verstappen who got a puncture after hitting some debris from a previous crash and eventually finished in 7th spot.
Verstappen now holds a 34 point lead at the top of the Drivers Standings from Perez with Leclerc a further 9 points back in 3rd. Verstappen has a strong hold on the Drivers Championship trading at the 2/9 favourite with Leclerc, second favourite at 9/2 and Hamilton and Sainz both trading at 25/1.

The Austrian Grand Prix has been run at the Red Bull Ring since 2014 and last year Max Verstappen qualified the fastest and then raced to a comfortable victory ahead of Bottas and Norris. Verstappen clearly has a liking for the track and has won 3 of the last 4 Austrian Grand Prix’s and he also won last year’s Styrian Grand Prix which was also raced at the Red Bull Ring.

Top 6 Finish, Fernando Alonso at 14/10
Alonso has been in consistent form and turned in his best performance of the season at Silverstone, finishing 5th. That came on the back of 4 consecutive points finishes. The veteran looks nicely priced to run into the Top 6 this week.
