It’s race weekend coming up in both F1 and MotoGP as we grip in anti-caption. It’s almost July, and we have seen some epic motor racing action this year already. The Formula 1 season is well underway with the championship title races starting to take shape. The MotoGP is also well underway giving us an idea of who will be taking the crown come the end of season. Let’s have a closer look at the weekend’s upcoming action.

Formula 1 – Steiermark GP, 27 June

Max Verstappen is having a career best season, registering 3 victories and 6 podium finishes – 3 of which were second-place finishes. Verstappen currently finds himself sitting at the top driver standings on 131 points. The question is now if the Dutch driver can maintain his lead until the end of the season. He currently sits 12 points ahead of Lewis Hamilton at the top of the table. The Constructors Championship looks like it could be heading in the direction of Verstappen’s Red Bull team, who currently have a healthy 37-point lead.

Lewis Hamilton has had a good season for most, but for him he would consider it a frustrating season. The British multi-times champion has managed 3 victories and 2 second-place finishes. A disappointing show in Azerbaijan caused him to lose some much-needed points as he wasn’t able to capitalise on the DNF recorded by Verstappen. Hamilton will still hold out hope as he has time on his side yet.

With 15 Formula 1 races to go, the focus now points to Austria for the Steiermark Grand Prix held at the Red Bull Ring. Verstappen will certainly be going there as pre-race favourite, but a gritty Lewis Hamilton will always be looking to add to his formidable record. The weather is forecast for a warm day with the potential of storms which could cause some unexpected activity. It should make for a fascinating spectacle.

MotoGP – Dutch TT, 27 June

Fabio Quartararo has electrified us with 5 podiums and 3 victories so far this season. The French, Monster Energy Yamaha rider has emphatically gained a 22-point advantage lead over fellow Frenchman, Johann Zarco. Just consistency alone should be enough for the 22-year-old to claim his first MotoGP title having built up a big lead. His results this far show us that he won’t be slowing down with the crown now firmly in his sights.

The attention has now been turned over to the constructor’s championship as it is far from over, as Yamaha hold just a 5-point lead over rivals, Ducati. It is a real tussle as Yamaha has Quartararo giving them most of their points this far. If he has just a couple of lower position finishes, then surely Ducati’s persistence and consistency will really bear fruit. The Yamaha team might need to focus more on getting their drivers up the grid.

The Dutch TT is next up, and it is looking like a showery weekend ahead with a forecast of scattered showers and possible thunderstorms.
