Austrian GP: Preview - Aston Martin

NEWS STORY

Lance Stroll: "This is a fun little circuit: it is quick and relentless - you are always pushing to the limit to maximise the lap-time. I have had some good results here in the last couple of years, and I feel that we can develop some positive momentum if we can string together a clean weekend. It is easier to pass here than it was at Imola, venue of the last Sprint race, so I hope we will see more action on Saturday afternoon this time around."

Sebastian Vettel: "This is a really unforgiving circuit - go off the road and you are quickly punished - but that makes it enjoyable because you are always tested. The kerbs are very aggressive - and, with these ground-effect cars, we will definitely need to be extra careful - but I hope we will be more competitive this weekend. The Sprint adds another dimension to the weekend - and the races here are usually eventful - so I am looking forward to getting two shots at it!"

Insight and Speed

Tyres: The three softest compounds - the C3, C4 and C5 - will be used for the fourth time in five races. Normally a one-stopper, the timing of a Safety Car can influence a second stop and heavily change the dynamics of the race.

Overtaking: The Red Bull Ring is one of the easiest places on the calendar to overtake. The run to the Turn Three hairpin and Turn Four right-hander are the key locations for passes - 90 per cent of moves take place into or out of these corners.

Safety Cars: Since returning to the calendar in 2014, 60 per cent of races have featured a Safety Car or a Virtual Safety Car - which is close to average. As was the case at Silverstone, VSCs are used very rarely - there has only been one occurrence, back in 2018.
