Formula 1: Austrian Grand Prix

Following three races around street circuits in Monaco, Montreal and Baku, the Formula 1 circus is heading to an altogether different environment this weekend (1-3 July) as it rolls into the picturesque Austrian mountains.
This change of air looks set to suit the Renault Sport Formula One Team, as the squad’s Chief Technical Officer Bob Bell explains: “Austria is much more in the R.S.16’s comfort zone. With some very fast sections, you need a car that has good high-speed balance, which should play to our strengths. As we’ve seen in the last three races, we do have a weakness in low-speed corners so it’s good to get away from them!”
