Can Max Verstappen increase his lead in the F1 championship at the Styrian GP?

Yesterday Max Verstappen conquered pole position for the GP of Styria fairly quickly. This gives the Dutchman an excellent opportunity to increase his lead over Lewis Hamilton in the F1 championship.

After his two fastest times in Friday’s practice sessions, Max Verstappen was the big favorite for pole position. Verstappen lived up to that favorite role and captured pole, even though Hamilton seemed to offer some resistance on Saturday with a best time in the last practice session.

The momentum is clearly good at Red Bull, after a brilliant victory a week ago in France, Max Verstappen can do another good thing in the title fight today.

Hamilton has already indicated that there is little chance that he will be able to ‘follow’ Verstappen during the race. The seven-time world champion will therefore mainly want to strike during the start and that start is quite treacherous on the Red Bull Ring: uphill and a blind angled first turn to the right.

Everything in house for a spectacle at the start, appointment at 3 pm when the GP of Styria starts.
