"Sainz's brilliant race-winning performance at the French Grand Prix saw him extend his championship lead to 18 points."
Well, almost... that would have been the headline had the Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull teams not relegated the other seven teams to also-ran status this season.
Carlos Sainz has arguably been the unsung hero of 2019, taking a pair of terrific sixth positions in Monaco and France after a miserable first trio of races for McLaren.
Team-mate Lando Norris has kept him honest but Sainz's points tally is almost double that of the rookie, and the Spaniard's experience and racecraft can once again guide him to a solid points finish in Austria this weekend.
Daniil Kvyat made good use of his fresh power unit in France to vault from the back row of the grid to 14th by the chequered flag.
It was another mature performance from the resurgent Russian who had taken a points finish in each of his previous three races.
It's team-mate Alex Albon's turn to take a grid demotion this weekend, which will enable Kvyat to spearhead Toro Rosso's challenge in the search for more points.
The Red Bull Ring's long straights and medium-speed corners should allow the pair to compete with McLaren and Renault for 'best of the rest' behind the big three teams, and at 5/2 a fifth points finish from nine races looks a reasonable ask.
