The race at the Red Bull Ring is a circuit of 4.318 km that drivers have to drive around for 71 laps for a total of 306. 452 km. Currently, Verstappen holds the record for the most wins on the circuit, having crossed the chequered line first four times so far (2018, 2019, 2021, 2023). His name is also against the fastest lap at the circuit, and with 7 wins in 10 races this seasons o far, Verstappen is, undoubtedly the hot favourite to win in Austria.

But with weather conditions predicted to have mild rain throughout the day on June 30 and tire degradation on the Red Bull car likely to affect Verstappen, experts are not ruling out a possible fight from Lando Norris.

Verstappen continues to lead the drivers’ championship with 219 points to his credit. Nearest rivals Lando Norris, at 150 points and Charles Leclerc at 148 points, will need a couple of good races to get close to Verstappen, provided he doesn’t manage podium finishes in those events. As we near the half way mark of the season, the fight in the drivers’ championship is between these three men – Verstappen, Norris and Leclerc. Verstappen’s teammate Sergio Perez is currently at number 5 with 111 points.

Red Bull Racing is also still ahead in the constructor’s championship, but with both the Ferrari drivers – Leclerc and Carlos Sainz – consistently making it to podium or points finishes, the fight may get a lot tighter in the second half of the season. Currently Red Bull leads with 330 points, while Ferrari is at 272 points.
