Home run, homeland fans, home run for Max Verstappen.
After impressing in practice 3 on Saturday morning, Verstappen took home pole position and leads the grid at Sunday’s Austrian Grand Prix, his fourth pole of the 2021 season.
Pole position for the Red Bull rider, and current leader in the drivers’ championships, is exceptionally important now. Going into the middle of the season, Verstappen leads Lewis Hamilton in the drivers’ championship, with the Merc rider entering Sunday’s sprint in fourth on the grid.
Lando’s final lap was the Lando fastest lap on Saturday, with Norris finishing second in the standings, his best result in Formula 1. Verstappen’s Red Bull teammate Sergio Pérez enters race two at Red Bull Ring in third grill stand.
Here’s how they’ll line up this Sunday in Austria, once again:
Formula 1 starting eleven for the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix
A disappointing race at the Red Bull Ring continues for Ferrari, who failed to make it to Q3 on Saturday. Still, they have a good race pace, so both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are expected to make up some places on Sunday.
Vettel finished qualifying in eighth place, but is expected to fall on the grid for blocking Fernando Alonso at the end of Q2.
