Home sweet home for Red Bull Racing.
In seven races during the 2021 F1 season, Mercedes and Red Bull each won the checkered flag. They have also won qualifying for every race except two this year, with Max Verstappen taking pole position again on Saturday.

Red Bull winning pole in Austria is not certain: in the first official race of the Styrian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton took pole position and race victory last year, and Red Bull did won only two races on the track (between GP of Styria and GP of Austria) since the circuit returned to the calendar in 2014.
But hopes are high for Red Bull – I hope their home races give them some wings.
Here’s how they line up this Sunday in Austria:
