The Styrian Grand Prix saw Lewis Hamilton struggle to compete with rivals Red Bull with Max Verstappen who finished first on the podium.

The Dutchman began the race from pole position and faced no difficulty throughout the race from his competitor.

Hamilton was taken aback by Red Bull’s pace and claimed that their rear wing played an important role in their performance.

“Naturally they have that really good wing that bends, which they’ve had most of the year,” Hamilton said.

“I think they’ve been developing it for, as far as I’m aware or what I’m told, for quite a long time, which we haven’t, so that would definitely be part of it.”

Mercedes and Red Bull have been involved in a tussle regarding the latter’s rear wing for a while now.

“If we’re not going to develop and improve our car for the rest of the year, this is the result you’re going to see, because, as I said, they’ve really eked out performance in these last few races, wherever it’s been, whether it’s been in France with the engine or the new wing, whichever it is,” Hamilton added.

“But there’s another TD (technical directive) coming out for the wings. I don’t know if they’re stopping the bendiness or not but maybe that will level the playing field,” he concluded.

With another round of race left in Austria, we can only wait and see how Mercedes perform.

However, things seem to be in favor of Red Bull for the moment.
