Heavy rains at the Red Bull Ring racetrack led to the cancellation of GP Styria test runs, and there were concerns that the qualifying marathon would also be postponed.
However, this stage of the rankings could finally take place a few hours later – with the results can be said to be quite unexpected.
With an advantage in the starting position, with a better engine than the rest and the help of the DAS multi-axis control system, Lewis Hamilton did not face any difficulties in the race at the Red Bull Ring today.
The world champion’s W11 glided faster and the rest through each round. It was no surprise that the British rider won. This was Hamilton’s 85th victory and was the second time he finished first at the Red Bull Ring racetrack.
Later Hamilton was Valtteri Bottas, so once again, Mercedes won 1-2. The Finnish driver persisted in pursuing Max Verstappen and took second place after a pass in the 65th round. If he could not improve his performance, perhaps the other racing teams would also have to witness two cars. Black comes from Germany crowned again this season. Behind Hamilton and Bottas are Red Bull’s drivers Max Verstappen and Alexander Albon.
Contrary to the not so unexpected developments of the first group, GP Styria is a very memorable memory for Ferrari. Right in the first round, Charles Leclerc collided with Sebastian Vettel. The tail of the German driver and Leclerc’s front wing were badly damaged, resulting in both of them entering the pit. Vettel gave up soon after, and Leclerc also only ran a few more rounds to break up the race. Obviously, in addition to the bad engine, Ferrari also faces the internal conflict situation that has occurred for many recent seasons.
Winning at GP Styria, Lewis Hamilton got 37 points, only 6 points behind Valtteri Bottas on the individual table. The next leg of the F1 2020 season will take place on July 19 at the Hungaroring racetrack, Hungary.
