Following a thrilling British Grand Prix, the drivers will travel to Spielberg for the Austrian Grand Prix, where Max Verstappen will be looking to reclaim the podium as Mercedes continues to improve and Ferrari pursues Red Bull.
The second of seven consecutive European Grand Prix begins on Sunday, and we preview the action below.
Ferrari and Red Bull continue to dominate this season, with the two teams topping the Constructors’ Championship and their drivers finishing in the top four of the Drivers’ Championship. Mercedes has struggled this season, but recent improvements have them third in the constructors’ standings, with drivers Lewis Hamilton and George Russell fifth and sixth in the championship.
Despite finishing seventh at Silverstone, reigning world champion Max Verstappen is still the 5/6 favorite to win in Austria on Sunday. The Dutchman maintains a 34-point lead over his teammate Sergio Perez in the drivers’ standings. A win on Sunday would put him at least 40 points ahead as the season nears its halfway point.
Sergio Perez is the other half of the dominant Red Bull team, and with a second-place finish last weekend, he ensured his team took home a good share of the points. At 10/1, he is the fourth favorite to win in Austria.
Carlos Sainz took over from his Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc on his 150th start last weekend, giving him his first Formula One victory. As a result of his performance, he is the 9/1 third favorite to win the race this weekend.
After playing second fiddle to Verstappen for the majority of the season, Charles Leclerc is now 11/4 to win the race on Sunday. He’ll be hoping to make the podium after missing out at Silverstone, and he’s the 4/9 favorite to do so.
Lewis Hamilton put in a stellar performance in the ever-improving Mercedes to finish third at his home circuit last Sunday. He is the fifth favourite to win this weekend at 11/1, but Hamilton would be happy just to finish on the podium, and the seven-time world champion is 2/1 to do so.

Fernando Alonso of Alpine finished fifth at Silverstone last weekend. The two-time world champion is one of the most experienced drivers on the grid, but with the dominance of richer teams like Red Bull and Ferrari, a win looks unlikely at 175/1, but if he can drive as well as he did last weekend, he has a chance of finishing in the top six at 11/8.
George Russell was unlucky to crash out on the first corner at his home circuit and will be eager to score some points for Mercedes in Austria, which doesn’t seem unlikely with the Brit 1/3 to finish in the top six and a shoe-in at 1/5 to finish in the points, while he is 11/4 to finish on the podium for the fourth time this season.
Mick Schumacher scored his first points of the season for Haas at Silverstone, finishing just ahead of world champion Max Verstappen. The man with one of the most famous names on the grid will be hoping to repeat his performance from last weekend and is 5/2 to finish in the points this weekend.
