Another win for Max Verstappen’s sack. And that’s it there are four in eight days that the World Cup leader leads. The Dutch driver had a perfect race and his first place was never in danger. Mercedes did not know how to react to RedBull’s movements and watched with concern as Hamilton, 12 seconds behind first, slipped away in qualifying. “I felt that the car worked very well from the beginning. We will have to do it again next week, but he was sure that we can do a good job again,” explained Verstappen.

Hamilton, like his team, sees his direct competitors fade away. This was demonstrated at the end of the race: “I tried to get close to the RedBull drivers, but have improved a lot in recent weeks and it was difficult. I try not to worry, but they are faster and there is not much to do. We got some good points from the team point of view. ”Bottas completed the podium after starting fifth on Friday’s penalty and Pérez was fourth.

Carlos Sainz starred in an epic comeback by finishing sixth and leaving twelfth. The Spaniard lasted longer than expected without going through the pits and the Italian team got the strategy right. Also, your teammate, Charles Leclerc, He recovered after a horrible start and was placed just behind the Madrid. Ferrari scores points after a very difficult weekend and can leave Austria with its head held high.

For its part, Fernando Alonso was ninth and scores points for the third consecutive week. The Asturian was superlative at the start, gaining two positions and enjoying Formula 1 again. Again, ahead of Ocon (fourteenth). The Spaniard gains confidence as the season progresses and is approaching the expectations that his return unleashed. “Very good job guys, next week it will be, one day we will be very lucky because we already have a lot of credit.”
