Not every race can be a classic, but there was a sense of déjà vu in the final lap of the second race in Austria, helping bookend a Styrian Grand Prix that saw a dramatic opening.

Ferrari needed all the track time they could get after fast-tracking new parts originally scheduled for Hungary, because they then had the opportunity to carry out back-to-back comparisons on the same Red Bull Ring circuit. Given FP3 was cancelled and qualifying wet, the disappointing starting positions of 10th for Sebastian Vettel and 14th for Charles Leclerc – after a grid penalty – were less important than gaining data over a race distance in the dry.

So Turn Three on the first lap was an absolute disaster for the team.
