In the constructors’ classification, the primary objective is to reduce the distance from the AlphaTauri-Aston Martin duo, currently fighting for fifth position.
Alonso: “Ferrari within reach where tire degradation is high”
“Austria is a fairly unique circuit – commented Esteban Ocon, presenting the two races between the peaks of Styria – especially for its hillside location. It’s a really beautiful location, so spending two weeks there is always enjoyable. The two races of last year were special, because they marked the moment when I got back to racing in F1 and also the first race after the lockdown. Something different this year will be that we will have fans and that’s exciting. I really like it, I can’t wait to see the fans on the track this weekend “.

“The Red Bull Ring is an exciting track in which to race – echoed him Fernando Alonso – with lots of ups and downs and high speed turns. I raced here in the 2000s and then again since 2014, so I have quite a bit of experience on the circuit. Not much has changed. There are some good overtaking opportunities in Turns 3 and 4 and this makes the weekend interesting as we can fight for positions on Sunday. I like that there is another race right away, because you can try to keep the momentum going from the previous round“.
