It was a particularly good weekend for Ghiotto when taking into consideration he had failed to score any points in the two rounds prior to Austria.

Outside of the four already mentioned, it was a good weekend for Mick Schumacher, who like Ghiotto, ended a run of zero point scoring weekends in Austria after finishing fourth in the sprint race.

A bad weekend for…

After being spun round by his teammate during the feature race, it was a difficult weekend for championship challenger, Nicholas Latifi, who managed to only score six points across the two races. He is however still in second place in the championship.

Lastly, it was a difficult weekend for Guanyu Zhou, who after having managed to score over twenty points in each of the last three rounds, managed to score only nine points during the weekend in Austria.
