Formula 1 in Austria, here we come!

Written by: Neil

The Formula 1 freight train will be rolling into Austria this weekend, with the excitement all set to resume in what is one of the most thrilling title races of recent years.

Mercedes teammates Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will once again be battling to secure points in the fight for this year's title, with the recent victory of Rosberg in the European Grand Prix bringing to a close a run of race wins for Hamilton that had seen the Brit drag himself back into this year's competition.

Rosberg now leads his teammate by 24 points in the championship standings, meaning it's all still to play for and one victory for Hamilton and a DNF for Rosberg could see the pair switch places!

Looking towards the coming race weekend in Austria, the Red Bull Ring will likely prove a stern test for racers up and down the grid come Sunday, with its undulating track and high-speed straights bringing the best out of the drivers and their cars.

Whatever the outcome of this weekend's race, the Austrian Grand Prix marks the passing of the opening third of the 2016 Formula 1 season, and what a season it's been so far.

With the emergence of outstanding talent and true battle for supremacy at the front of the field, we're loving the exciting racing in 2016… long may it continue!
