The delayed F1 season is a real adventure which only can be forgotten by am excellent start of the season. For the latter the best solution lies with the Red Bull Ring, where a successful race (And one or two victories by Max Verstappen) might be a real push to the Red Bull Team.
Although we speak about a four-time individual and construction world champion, there are many Formula-1 supporters who rather focus on the Ferrari and Mercedes traditions and therefore do not consider the energy drink team to be a true competition. By means of a flawless organization, Red Bull may finally rise up to the level of the two mentioned giants, thereby posing a clear direction in the most difficult year faced by the F1 so far.
In the field of sports diplomacy Austria and the Red Bull Ring are the Max Verstappen in sports. Red Bull Racing’s Dutch star might truly benefit from the shortened 2020 and from the chaos implied by it. Before the start of the season the team was overwhelmed by an ‘it is now or never’ mood, further amplified by the current situation. As to what concerns the start, Verstappen became in the last two year a real Steiermark Track specialist and he won even two races – therefore it is easy to guess that a powerful start may end with a World Champion title.
The competition year’s third race will be the Hungarian Grand Prix, where Verstappen may dictate the rhythm and be a serious competitor on the other tracks as well. Honestly to say, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him on the top, after eight European races.
Could this year be an icebreaker, without any Mercedes racer being the great winner?
