The Austrian GP weekend Sprint race was a fun event and had a few exciting moments on track. The Sprint was won by Max Verstappen followed by two Ferrari’s of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz.

The pass of Mick Schumacher by Red Bull’s Sergio Perez was a terrific move and a sort of, “welcome to the majors, Mr. Schumacher” moment. Equally, Mick did a terrific job of defending against a quicker Lewis Hamilton but once Mick’s teammate, Kevin Magnussen pulled out enough of a lead to deny the young German DRS, he was a sitting duck for the 7-time champ.
