With the race in Austria this weekend it's time again for the official press conferences of the FIA. This Thursday Lewis Hamilton will join Esteban Ocon, Max Verstappen will sit next to Fernando Alonso. The press conference will start at 12:30.

This week Antonio Giovinazzi and Sergio Perez kick off the press conference, followed by Yuki Tsunoda and Nikita Mazepin. An interesting duo are Kimi Raikkonen and Charles Leclerc, who briefly touched during the Styrian GP when Leclerc overtook the Finn, are lined up together.

Furthermore, teammates Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel are racing together. Stroll finished in eighth place during the race last weekend, while Vettel fell outside the points at 12th place. Lewis Hamilton will take his place alongside Esteban Ocon and Valtteri Bottas will be joined by Lando Norris.

Verstappen and Alonso

Verstappen is randomly placed next to world champion Alonso this week. A nice combination, because Alonso is part of the older generation on the grid, while Verstappen is part of the new, upcoming generation. Who knows, this might lead to some surprising moments.
