Fernando Alonso arrives excited for the double appointment of the Red Bull Ring circuit in Austria that opens with the Styrian GP. After finishing in the points in the last two races in Baku and Paul Ricard, the Spaniard arrives wanting to keep the streak going to Austria: "It's an exciting track to race with a lot of great elevation changes and high-speed corners. I raced here in the 2000s and again when it came back from 2014 so I have quite a bit of track experience. Not much has changed. There are some good overtaking opportunities at Turns 3 and 4, which makes the weekend quite exciting, since you can fight for the positions on Sunday. I like that it is a consecutive race with another, since you can try to maintain the momentum from the previous round ", assures Alonso in a statement from Alpine F1.

Esteban Ocon, for his part, hopes to improve his results and straighten out a course that in Azerbaijan led him to abandon and finish far away from the points in France: "Austria is quite a unique circuit, especially because of its location in the hills. However, I really like it. Last year's double date in Austria was very memorable as it marked the moment when I returned to racing in Formula 1 and also the first race in 2020 after the delay by Covid. One thing that will be different this Once upon a time we will have fans in Austria and that's exciting. Having fans in the stands, like in France, brings a new level of atmosphere and real enthusiasm. "
