Verstapen won his fourth victory of the season and his 14th career. For the first time in his career, the Dutchman has won two stages in a row.
Verstapens racing started from “pole-postion” and the steering reins did not return during the entire trip. More than half a minute behind it was “Mercdes” driver Lewis Hamilton, who went to the pits a couple of laps before the finish to show the fastest lap time with fresh tires, which gives an extra point in the overall standings.
Valter Botass, a member of the Hamilton team, finished third. Hamilton and the Mercedes team have not won in four stages in a row.
Verstapen’s colleague Serhio Peress was behind the top three, followed by Lendo Norris (McLaren), Carlos Sains Jr., Charles Clare (both Ferrari), Lens Strols (Aston Martin), Fernando Alonso (Alpine) and last at the point was Juki Cunoda (“AlphaTauri”).
The ninth stage of the season – the Austrian “Grand Prix” will take place on the Spielberg track next week.
After eight stages in the F-1 overall standings, Verstapen is the leader with 156 points, Hamilton has 18 less, and Perez is third with 96 points.
In 2020, the seventh F-1 title in his career and the fourth in a row was won by the British Lewis Hamilton from Mercedes. Previously, only the legendary German driver Michael Schumacher managed to win seven times.
Hamilton teammate Botass finished second, while Dutchman Verstapen from the Red Bull team finished third.
The Mercedes team also won the seventh Constructor’s Cup in a row.
It is planned to have a record number of races this season (23).
