On form

Also on form are Guanyu Zhou and Anthoine Hubert who have also scored big points over the previous two race weekends with Zhou scoring twenty points in Monaco and twenty two points in France while Hubert has managed to score nineteen points in Monaco and then also in France.

In need of a result

Although he managed fourteen points across the two races in France, Nicholas Latifi will need to outscore de Vries in Austria to cut into the twelve points that separate the two.

Having started the season strongly and not having been able to score any points in Monaco or France, Luca Ghiotto will need a strong performance in Austria to keep in touch with the current Formula 2 championship leaders.

Another driver needing a strong performance is Mick Schumacher who has failed to score points in the previous three rounds.

Been there, done that

At least eight of the drivers on the current grid competed in Austria last season in Formula 2:
