Three Key Pointers
- Expect Ferrari’s excellent straight-line speed to benefit them on Saturday, which is the only dry day forecast and could be crucial as to who starts on pole for Sunday’s likely wet race.
- After a strong showing in Belgium, Racing Point should be competitive this weekend and particularly in the rain.
- With Max Verstappen starting at the back after taking a power unit upgrade, this is Alexander Albon’s chance to showcase his potential at Red Bull.
