Mercedes released the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix preview featuring comments from team boss Toto Wolff. You can read the full preview below!
“Last weekend, we maximised the opportunities available to us and despite not having the quickest car, took a solid double podium and a good haul of points,” Wolff said.
“Every time we hit the track; we race to win. But, while we missed out on the top step of the podium last time out, there was still plenty to be encouraged by. Our drivers performed well, our pit stops were excellent, and our strategy calls were strong.
“We head back to the Styrian mountains this weekend with another big challenge on our hands but running on the same circuit on consecutive weekends brings opportunity too.

“We had an experimental Friday with the car set-up last weekend, and we hope to arrive to FP1 this weekend with the car in a happier place, ready to build from there.
“The tyre compounds are also a step softer this weekend, so that will bring a new challenge for all the teams and fresh possibilities in terms of strategy.
“This championship is a heavyweight contest over 23 rounds, and we’re just over a third of the way through.
“There are many opportunities to come and it’s still all to play for, so we’re excited for round nine,” concluded the Austrian.
