Six talking points from the Styrian GP

That eighth Formula 1 world championship appears to be slipping away from Lewis Hamilton right now. At the Styrian Grand Prix on Sunday he and his Mercedes-AMG team were soundly beaten by Max Verstappen and Red Bull in the energy drink company’s own backyard, as the Dutchman did what his countryman failed to manage in the Euro 2020 football later that afternoon. Verstappen now holds an 18-point lead over Hamilton, which isn’t too much at this early stage of the season – but it was the manner of this defeat that will give the team behind the Black Arrows a nagging headache this week.
