Mercedes seemed to had no answers to Red Bull’s pace in last weekend’s Styrian GP where Verstappen saw the chequered flag 35 seconds before Hamilton. F1 is racing again this weekend on the same circuit with the only difference of Pirelli bringing a softer set of tyres. It remains to be seen if the C5 tyre (the softest one) will be enough to produce a different race – either due to the cars extracting different amounts of pace out of it or due to the strategic possibilities it opens up.
If we want to be honest with ourselves, Max is still the favorite to win this race again. Maybe we could also see Perez taking a place next to Max on the podium. However, Lewis must – now more than ever – take this win in order to keep his chances for a record-breaking 8th title alive.
