2022 Austrian Grand Prix

Having kept the chasing Ferraris at arm’s length throughout the sprint race, Red Bull couldn’t match their rivals on tyre degradation during the grand prix.

Charles Leclerc pressed home his advantage, passing Max Verstappen on-track, then running a much longer first stint than than his championship rival. That ensured the Ferrari driver had the whip hand whenever he caught the Red Bull over the rest of the afternoon, always able to close in quickly on much fresher tyres before breezing past in a DRS zone.

For the second race in a row, Leclerc then found himself in the potentially uneasy position of leading when the race was temporarily neutralised. That cost him dearly at Silverstone, where Ferrari opted not to pit him during a Safety Car period, and he lost out to three drivers who did come in and took fresh tyres.

This time the decision was much easier for Ferrari. They only had to worry about one car, Carlos Sainz Jnr having disappeared from the picture with his race-ending engine problem. Moreover, the pursuing Verstappen was on tyres that were 13 laps older than Leclerc’s, so Ferrari could safely assume he wasn’t going to stay out and take the race lead.

After fighting his way out of the midfield, Lewis Hamilton had decent pace in the middle of the race on hard tyres. He wasn’t pleased at being put back onto mediums for his final stint, which he was told was because Mercedes were looking for an “opportunity” at the end of the race.

The idea may have been to pit him for a set of softs in the final lap to make a bid for the fastest lap bonus point. But as George Russell behind passed Esteban Ocon and stayed within pit stop range of his Mercedes team mate, Hamilton never had enough of a gap behind to make the pit stop cleanly.

He might have preferred not to put too much faith in Mercedes’ pit stops anyway, having had two sluggish stops during the race, the worst of which cost him around one-and-a-half seconds. The quickest complete pit stop of the day went to Williams, who turned Nicholas Latifi around six-thousandths of a second quicker than the next-best stop.
