Red Bull’s Sergio Perez drops down a position in the drivers’ standings and goes third after registering another DNF against his name at the Red Bull Ring. He will be desperate to get a good result under his belt as he has registered two DNFs in the last three races.

Meanwhile, Ferrari had a promising end the last time around in Austria as Leclerc took the victory at the home of Red Bull.

Whereas, things looked pretty well for the Silver Arrows in the Austrian GP as Lewis Hamilton claimed his fourth podium finish of the season and back-to-back podium finishes as he claimed the third spot at the Red Bull Ring.

Moreover, George Russell claimed the fourth spot and continued his great run of form of finishing in the top five this season. Only once he has not finished in the top five and it was his home race where he was involved in a multi-car accident on the first lap of the race.

Mercedes have shown immense improvement and have also countered Porpoising, which troubled them in the first half of the F1 2022 season.
