4 - The four races in Spielberg since the Austrian GP returned to the F1 calendar have been won by Mercedes (Nico Rosberg twice, Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas).

3 - Hamilton is one pole away from equalling Niki Lauda, Rene Arnoux and Nelson Piquet for the most (three) at the race.

22 - Mercedes have gone 22 consecutive races – between Canada last year and France in 2018 – having at least one driver on the podium. Another in Austria would see them record the third best run in F1 history.

7 - Ferrari have secured seven poles in Austria – the most by any team in the country.

23 - Sebastian Vettel has been on pole in 23 of 26 different grands prix. He can equal Hamilton on 24 by taking pole in Austria.

50 - Vettel is one win away from joining Alain Prost on 51. Only Michael Schumacher (91) and Hamilton (65) have more victories.

3 - Daniel Ricciardo only needs one more win to equal his best F1 season (three in 2014).
