Should we pin our hopes on Pirelli's C5 tyre? A compound that's never been raced before at the Red Bull Ring? And of course, do your rain dance before you tune in - because if nothing else, the weather might just make the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix an entertaining one. 

Remember the low expectations before the 2021 French Grand Prix? It might just make sense to follow the same strategy this weekend, too.

Soumil and Kunal preview the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix in this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast. Formula 1 teams would've raced at the Red Bull Ring four times in the last twelve months - each race having it's own distinct identity. The duo discuss what to expect this weekend!

If George Russel is Mr. Saturday, is Sergio Perez Formula 1's Mr. Sunday? Perez's improvement in qualifying will be the one to watch for this weekend. 

Also, how will Mercedes-Hamilton retaliate? Would they have found the missing two tenths in their package? Let's hope they don't find one more reason to 'blame' Red Bull Racing for being the class of the field. Then of course, there's the ever-competitive mid-field battle - Mclaren, Ferrari and you know the other players.

Finally, above all else, the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix will be remembered for welcoming fans in full capacity - a great sign of things to come, one hopes. Tune in!
