Formula 1 qualifying results: Starting grid for 2021 Styrian Grand Prix

5

Home sweet home for Red Bull Racing.

Through seven races in the 2021 F1 season, Mercedes and Red Bull have taken home the checkered flag in each. They’ve also taken home qualifying for every race but two this year, with Max Verstappen taking home pole position once again on Saturday.

Red Bull winning from pole in Austria isn’t a certainty: In the first official running of the Styrian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton took home pole position and the race win last year, and Red Bull has won just two races at the track (between Styrian GP and Austrian GP) since the circuit returned to the calendar in 2014.

But, hopes are high for Red Bull — hopefully their home races will give them wings.

Here’s how they’ll line up this Sunday in Austria:
