How Red Bull's next F1 hopeful turned around his season

By:

Having impressed in Formula 3, Juri Vips looked to be next cab off the rank in Red Bull's prestigious Junior Team before his 2020 schedule was dealt a heavy blow by the COVID-19 pandemic. After a tough start to life in Formula 2, Vips is showing signs of a recovery - could he be the first Estonian to reach Formula 1?

Juri Vips made history during the Baku FIA Formula 2 weekend, taking two wins and propelling himself up the drivers' standings, but has he done enough to turn around an unlucky start to the season?

The talented Red Bull junior now sits fourth in the drivers' championship, just three points behind Robert Shwartzman – an old rival from further down the ladder – and 15 points off leader Guanyu Zhou.
