F1 Round 2 - Styrian GP
Updated: Jul 20
Hamilton is back and won the race! Lando Norris shinned again!
For the 2nd race of the year, again in Austria and renamed as Styrian Grand Prix, so we cannot get confused, Lewis Hamilton gave no chance to the competition and won for the 85th time in Formula-1, getting closer and closer to Michael Schumacher, who has the record of 91 victories, what a legend! So Mercedes did 1-2, having Bottas in 2nd position.
A great finish from Lando Norris in 5th, who passed 3 cars on the last 2 laps of the race, shinning again, McLaren is going strong with some luck at the beginning of this season.
As for the poor Sergio Pérez, our "Checo", he got the front wing damaged at the end, when trying to pass through Alex Albon from Red Bull Racing team, who finished in 4th and managed to finish 6th, crossing the line all together with Lance Stroll in 7th and Daniel Riccardo in 8th, separated by milliseconds.
Verstappen in 3rd at the end, suffered a lot with a damaged front wing, so he got passed by Valtteri Bottas, but not before a good fight.
What about the Ferraris? Oh boy, unfortunately there was not much to be seen, as Leclerc collided with his team mate Sebastian Vettel on the first lap and both got retired. What a day for Ferrari, wish them to have better luck on the next Grand Prix.
