This weekend, we are off to the Red Bull Ring, home of the Austrian Grand Prix.
This is another power circuit so I would expect to see the main protagonists again at the head of the field.
Best of the rest will again be Max Verstappen and, who knows, maybe Pierre Gasly will show his true potential at this event.
Given these 3 teams will be at the head of the field, the mid field will again show the excitement in this round.
Following an exciting end to the French Grand Prix, it will be interesting to see whether Renault and McLaren will renew their rivalry and if Alfa Romeo, in the hands of Kimi Raikkonen, will again be the cat among the pigeons.
Toro Rosso, Racing Point and Haas seemed to have dropped the ball as of late and the beleaguered Williams should again be propping up the field.

Two red flags in quick succession, the first for Max Verstappen going rearwards into the barrier in turn 10 and the second for Valtteri Bottas going frontwards into the barrier at turn 5 severely disrupted the session. Both drivers walked away unscathed but both Red Bull and Mercedes have a lot of work to get their machines ready for Saturday.
Sebastian Vettel almost joined this list but thankfully stopped short of the turn 10 barrier. One set of tyres gone and maybe a little carbon fibre damage but the car was driven back to the pits.
