This will be a home race for defending champions and current leaders Red Bull.

After many of the Formula 1 teams brought upgrade packages to the Canadian Grand Prix, there’s only a quartet of declared updates in the latest ‘show and tell’ on the Friday ahead of the Austrian GP 2023.

Aston Martin & Mercedes

Aston Martin and Mercedes have been battling it out for second place in the constructors' championship so far in the 2023 Formula 1 season as Red Bull has swiftly established itself as a comfortable front-runner.

This being the case, and Austria being the home Grand Prix for Red Bull Racing, Aston Martin and Mercedes want to 'attack' at the Austrian GP 2023 as new upgrades come for both in the hope of closing the gap to Red Bull.

In the upcoming races, both teams want to compete against the Red Bulls as they plan to roll out new upgrade packages. At the Canadian Grand Prix, Aston Martin debuted their first significant upgrade package, however they had trouble recording results due to mechanical troubles and race-day weather. Aston Martin wants to improve its AMR-23 as soon as possible in order to catch up with Red Bull or at least secure P2 in the constructors' championship.

On the other side, Mercedes has already unveiled a number of improvement packages that have assisted them in overcoming their sluggish season debut. For the Austrian GP 2023, they are likely to include a new underbody, updated sidepods and engine cover, to increase the rear downforce of the W14, its current biggest weakness.

With 167 points, the silver arrows team is on the trail for RB19 as they are now second in the constructors' championship, 13 points ahead of the Aston Martin. Meanwhile, they have experienced a decline in their performance over the past few seasons.

McLaren Racing 

At the Austrian GP 2023, McLaren will unveil the first phase of their much-awaited upgrade package, with Team Principal Andrea Stella hailing it as a chance to "turn around" their season.

With only 17 points from eight races and a sixth-place finish in the constructors' standings, McLaren had a difficult start to the 2023 season after admitting in the preseason that they had fallen short of their "projected targets", they look towards having an impactful season for the remainder of 2023.

With these changes, the constructors championship battle will be elevated as the Austrian race weekend is expected to see a high competition for the Red Bull stars. With a lead of 321 points, the Red Bull Racing team will be all pumped to continue their rocking moment at their home GP.
