Flag of Austria 2019 Red Bull Ring Feature Race Flag of the United Kingdom 2019 Silverstone Feature Race

The 2019 Red Bull Ring Sprint Race, otherwise known as the 2019 Spielberg Race 2, was the twelfth race of the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship, staged at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria, on the 30 June 2019.[1] The race, held in support of the 2019 Austrian Grand Prix would see Sérgio Sette Câmara secure his first victory since 2017, as Nyck de Vries extended his lead atop the Championship.[2]

Jordan King would start the race from pole position, with Louis Delétraz starting alongside.[2] Those two duly made good starts to retain their positions into the first corner, while Câmara, who started from third, was one of three drivers to be mugged by de Vries on the run to the newly re-named Niki Lauda Kurve.[2]

All eyes were on de Vries during the early stages, with the Dutchman sweeping into the lead with successive moves on King and Delétraz to move into the lead.[2] However, the Dutchman's joy was not to last, for a glitch in his electronics caused his pit-lane speed limiter to activate, sending him back to sixth before he got back up to speed.[2]

That left Delétraz at the head of the field, although he was almost instantly mugged for the lead by Câmara as de Vries recovered.[2] The Brazilian racer duly eased clear over the following laps while, further down the field, Mick Schumacher was carving his way up the order after starting a lowly eighteenth.[2]

The order would, however, remain fairly static out front until the closing stages, when a failure for Delétraz sent his car skating into the barriers.[2] That brought out the safety car to allow the Carlin to be pulled out of the barriers, with the entire field now right behind Câmara's DAMS.[2]

The race resumed with two laps to go, with Câmara bunching up the field dramatically before he blasted clear.[2] The resulting bunching saw Guanyu Zhou, then in third, fall behind de Vries, with the Chinese driver ultimately slipping further down the field in the closing stages with worn tyres.[2]

Câmara would duly go on to claim victory ahead of Ghiotto, while de Vries had to put up a furious defence to keep a hard charging Schumacher at bay for third.[2] The Dutchman would also collect the fastest lap points to extend his Championship lead to 37 points over Nicholas Latifi, who only managed to claim sixth.[2]

Background

The Red Bull Ring required no further changes after the Feature, with the DRS zones not requiring any adjustment.[1] There was, however, a revision to the starting order, with Arjun Maini sent to the back of the grid due to being disqualified from the feature race for using the wrong tyres.[3] Regardless, Jordan King would start the Sprint from pole position ahead of Louis Delétraz and Guanyu Zhou.[4]

Nyck de Vries had extended his lead in the Championship after securing pole and a podium finish, pulling out a 29 point advantage over Nicholas Latifi. Sérgio Sette Câmara was next up, having moved ahead of Jack Aitken, while Luca Ghiotto completed the top five, a point off of the Brit. Guanyu Zhou was still the best placed rookie in sixth, a point off of teammate Ghiotto, while Nobuharu Matsushita had shot into eighth after his first win of the season.

In the Teams Championship it was DAMS who continued to command the title hunt, heading into the Sprint with a 34 point lead. UNI-Virtuosi were their closest challengers, with a small gap between themselves and third placed ART Grand Prix. Campos Racing were next ahead of Carlin, while Trident remained glued to the foot of the table.
