Red Bull Racing Honda and Scuderia AlphaTauri Honda return to the Styrian hills for more back-to-back weekends of racing at the home of the Bulls.
After the delayed start to the 2020 season, Austria saw not one but two races to kick-off the new-look calendar. Having climbed to the top step with Max Verstappen for our maiden win with Red Bull Racing in 2019, expectations were high. Unfortunately, neither weekend played out as expected, with one third place finish on the podium the only highlight from the first two rounds.
Having had a good run of results over the last few events, seeing Honda power take 5 podiums in the last 3 races, this year our full focus is on keeping the momentum going and achieving a strong result with the Bulls in what will be Honda’s final grand prix at the Red Bull Ring. With it being one of the shortest laps of the year, the pit wall and pit crew certainly have to be on their toes. A handful of quick corners and reasonably long straights keep the power unit working hard too. We’ll be hoping to make the hills sing once more in 2021, to the sound of the Honda music.
