Situado a 190km de Viena, en Spielberg, en las montañas de Estiria, el actual Red Bull Ring fué fundado como el Osterreichring, y fue sede del primer Gran Premio de Austria en 1970.

A través de los años, el circuito ha pasado de ser un trazado de once curvas y 5,9 kilómetros , desde 1970 a 1987, a su versión actual de 4,3 kilometros y nueve curvas, una configuración que ha mantenido desde su segunda etapa en la F1, desde el año 1997 al año 2003, cuando respondia al nombre de A1 Ring.

Es uno de los pocos circuitos del calendario que no ha sido diseñado por Hermann Tilke, aunque este se inspirara cláramente en la primera curva del A1Ring para “transplantarla” al circuito Tejano de COTA.

En 2011, el fabricante austriaco de bebidas energéticas Red Bull, propietario también de las escuderías de Fórmula Uno, Red Bull y Toro Rosso, añadió el circuito a su cartera automovilistica cuando compró, reconstruyó y puso en marcha las instalaciones, siendo el pasado año 2014 el primero de su tercera etapa en la Fórmula Uno.

El Red Bull Ring mantiene las catarcterísticas del A1Ring, y aunque no es precísamente de complejo trazado, es todo un reto, ya que los abruptos cambios de pendiente, las tres rectas seguidas, rematada cada una de ellas con una curva lenta, y la revirada sección central de media/alta velocidad, lo convirte en un híbrido entre Monza y Montreal, pero a los nada desdeñables 700 metros de altura media.

Comenzamos con la previas:

Renault F1:

Cyril Abiteboul, Team Principal: After the long, enforced break, the 2020 season can get underway.It has been a long journey since Australia: nine weeks shutdown at Enstone and seven weeks at Viry. While taking the necessary measures to protect itself, the Formula 1 community has mobilised to deploy its skills and resources around collective projects to respond to the challenges presented by the epidemic. In parallel, immense work has been done by the FIA, F1 and teams to provide effective responses so that racing can return in a secure environment. We now have to adapt to this new mode of operation but seeing the cars on track is a positive signal of progress on the health front.

Competition will therefore resume and also the traditional dual aims of competitiveness and progress. From our perspective a lot of work has been done to bring the chassis upgrades planned for the cancelled races three, five and six to Austria. This is particularly important when we remember the difficulties of our car at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring in previous seasons.

Above and beyond the technology, it is a season that will be trying for personnel, with a demanding schedule that follows a very disturbing period for everyone. The human element will probably be more important than in more standard seasons, and the role of each person will be decisive in the end result. This obviously applies to our drivers, but both are highly motivated at the prospect of the return and challenge.

After spending the last couple of months on his Australian farm, Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) is replacing dust tracks for tarmac as he prepares for the first race of the 2020 Formula 1 season.

How excited are you to go racing again after the time away from the circuit?

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): I'm raring to go! It's been a long time since I've raced or even competed properly in anything. It's getting close now and I had a good taste for it with the test in Austria earlier this month. Even though it was a two-year old car, it felt really nice to shake off the cobwebs. It was cool to be in that racing environment again as I'm sure it was for all the engineers and mechanics. I was skipping with excitement in the garage even with the various social restrictions in place!

How did you find the lockdown period?

DR: I think it was important to remain positive throughout that time as it was really uncharted territory for everybody. It was nice to be in one place for a long period of time, staying in one time zone, sleeping well and just having that time to recover and improve my physical condition. I've missed racing, of course, but not having it has just reiterated my love for driving Formula 1 cars.

What will be your mindset for the first race back?

DR: It's about getting back to business. We're all so excited to go racing again. We'll get on with it and give it our all as we know the season is going to be shorter than usual and very fast-paced. We want to get some points on the board, begin the season on the right foot and lay a solid foundation for us to build some good momentum.

What are your thoughts on the R.S.20 - R.E.20 package?

DR: I think we've made good progress on the car during winter testing. We can't be totally sure how it will go, but that's the same for all the teams. We have a slightly different car to the one we would have raced in Australia, but we'll have the answers this week! We'll focus on ourselves; we know the midfield will be quite tight, but the target is to give a better showing at this circuit than last year and then we'll see where we end up. I'll be giving it my all and I'm sure everyone at the team will do the same.

It's been a long wait for Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) to hit the race track again but that reality is in sight as the Frenchman gets set for his first Formula 1 start in Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team colours.

It's been a longer wait for you more than anyone, so how ready are you for Austria?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): It's been a year and half of waiting to be on the Formula 1 grid again, so I'm very excited for this first race. It feels fantastic to be starting the season. We have set our targets; we know what we want to achieve on track, and I know what I have to do behind the wheel. A lot of work has gone into preparing for this first race, I'm with a great team, driving a competitive car and I'm certainly hungry for it.

How did you find the test in Austria earlier this month?

EO: I found it very beneficial to get back into driving a car again. It felt good and so cool to be on a real track after playing on my home simulator for these last few months! Driving out of the garage again was a very special feeling. It didn't take me long to get back on the pace. I felt sharp, quick and definitely ready to race.

What are the targets for the first race back?

EO: I know Austria hasn't been the strongest circuit for the team in the past, but we'll look to turn that around this year. The car performed well in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and we definitely learnt a lot. It looks promising, we have some new things on the car as well. There will be lots of data gathering on Friday to see what we've improved, see what else we can change and to get up to speed once again. I'm looking forward to it, and we'll be targeting coming away with points.

Is it a circuit you enjoy racing?

EO: Spielberg is where I had one of my first podiums in single-seaters back in my Formula Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) days in 2012. I've had some decent results there in the past, but I'm focusing on what is now and that means a solid top 10 finish next weekend. I think it'll be strange without fans there and I will certainly miss them cheering us on. Hopefully we can give them a good show on TV and maybe see them later on in the year.

Austrian GP: Preview - Williams

After its postponement in the wake of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, and a 63-day shutdown period, the long anticipated 2020 season officially restarts this weekend in Austria. The revised calendar will see two races held at the same circuit on consecutive weekends and to ensure the safety of all involved, the event will sadly be closed to spectators.

Both George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67135/drivers/66/george-russell) and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) have spent the last few months preparing for the new season and Nicholas looks forward to now making his long awaited debut in Formula One this weekend.

The Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring packs a lot into a short lap with plenty of elevation change punctuated by fast sweeping turns and a number of heavy braking zones. Located in the Styrian Mountains, the track is one of the most picturesque circuits on the calendar, providing a spectacular backdrop for the season opener and the restart of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Dave Robson, Senior Race Engineer: Following a long dormant period, Formula One has reconvened in Austria to open the 2020 season, and the whole team are looking forward to racing once again. It is a long time since we were preparing the cars, drivers and engineers for the event in Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne) and it will be with anticipation that we fire the cars up ready for FP1. For much of the last few months we have been in our official shutdown period and so work on the cars stopped. Since returning from shutdown however, we have worked hard to ensure that the whole operation is equipped and ready for the start of the new season. There will be nerves and concerns every time the car runs, but it is that shot of adrenalin, and feeling of excitement and jeopardy, that reminds us that we have missed the action so much.

The nature of Formula One in 2020 is a little different to normal and as a result we will contest the first two rounds of this season at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring. The layout of the track as well as the tyre compounds are the same for both events, and so if weather conditions are stable, then we have a rare opportunity to test the cars and the drivers over two full race weekends in near identical conditions.

Austria is a tricky venue for the first race of the season as the circuit demands efficient downforce, strong ride characteristics and often very high levels of PU cooling. The lap is short and there are few opportunities to make up for a mistake, which increases the pressure on the drivers and the engineers. That said, it is a wonderful setting in which to race Formula One cars, and it will provide a great atmosphere and intensity despite being staged behind closed doors.

When we last ran the car in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), we were encouraged by the improvements made since the end of 2019, however, we are under no illusion that we need to keep working hard and maximise every opportunity we can find to get us further up the grid. We are also aware that teams will have taken the opportunity to improve their cars since February; more than ever, predicting the pace of the opposition is difficult and futile. Our initial efforts will be on making the most of our car, ensuring that it is reliable and raceable, and on learning for the intense series of races that lie ahead of us. Both George and Nicholas are familiar with the circuit and this will allow us to concentrate on the engineering during running on Friday.

We are pleased and thankful that we are able to return to doing what we love, however, everyone at Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams), and across Formula One, remembers those who have suffered, and those who continue to suffer, as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. We hope that the beginning of the 2020 F1 season will offer a small sense of a return to normality and provide some exciting new entertainment as the world slowly awakens from a prolonged and difficult period. We are facing a new future, but we will face it fairly, respectfully, cooperatively and in a fully inclusive way.

George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67135/drivers/66/george-russell): I'm really excited to get back racing and at a circuit that I enjoy driving and have gone well at in the past. It was probably one of my best races in Formula One last year so I'm really looking forward to it. We've done a lot of virtual racing recently so it will be great to now race in reality and provide some entertainment for the fans that will be supporting us from home. From a performance perspective, I don't want to pre-empt how we will get on as we've only really had winter testing. Regardless though, I will be going out there to give it my everything.

Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It goes without saying that I am extremely excited to finally make my Formula One debut! It's definitely not been a conventional build up to the first race of the season but these past few weeks have been good getting back into the swing of things, upping my preparations, and getting back into the factory and into the groove with the team. I feel ready and I feel prepared. It will be a bit strange with all the new protocols and it will definitely be a lot quieter without any fans. There will be a lot to get used to but we're getting to go racing again and that's the main thing. I can't wait to hit the track.

Austrian GP: Preview - Red Bull

The last time you were in the RB16 was in February at winter testing in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). Is this the longest you haven't raced for since you were karting?

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): It has been really weird that I haven't been able to drive in such a long time and It's the longest it's been since I started karting. Luckily, I have a simulator at home and as you've probably seen, I have been using that a lot during the shutdown period. I'm glad we can get back to racing now but this time has been very challenging for so many people, so we have nothing to complain about at all.

Are you excited to get back on track later this week?

MV: Yes definitely. It will be weird without fans but I really want to get back in the car and be as fast as possible. My training in the lead up to the race has been better than ever because I have had so much free time. I've had about six full weeks of training and I feel in even better shape now than I did before Australia. It's also great that we have the first two races of the season at our home track and it will be a special moment for sure.

How much will you miss the "orange army", especially in Austria?

MV: Of course, it is going to be very different without the orange army and it's going to feel a little strange. There are usually so many great Dutch fans in Austria. I have lots of good memories from that track, I remember looking up at the fans at the end of the race last year and they were all standing up and cheering, it was crazy. It gave me an even bigger smile after the win. It's a shame we don't have that this year but we will try and put on a good show for everyone watching at home on TV.

You have two attempts to win the Austrian GP this season. Do you think that is possible in the RB16?

MV: It's been such a long time since I drove the RB16, at the time it felt good but there's always room for improvement, I always want to do better. The Team have been working really hard in the lead up to the race and there will be upgrades to our car, but all teams will have those so it's not clear where anyone is at the moment. The weather conditions in Austria can also change quickly so that will play a part in the results. I will just focus on what is happening at the track and making sure we get the best performance out of the car.

What would a hat-trick at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring mean to you and do you consider yourself as a favourite?

MV: I would prefer to win a Championship! I don't really think about a hattrick, the most important thing for me is to have a competitive car and perform at my best. I never consider myself the favourite because actually when you look at the track it's not even our best track, but last year, of course, it was very warm. We were really good with keeping the engine cooling down. So I don't expect it to be an easy win, I think Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) again will be very strong. Who knows where Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) will be as well, so no, it will be a very hard and tough battle again to win that race, but we're going to try.

There are a lot of races in a short timeframe this season. Do you like that and is the intensity of that pressure good for you?

MV: You are away a lot of course and you can't go home in between races, which is going to be difficult especially for the team members with families. I don't really think about it as pressure though as it is what we love and what we are here for.

How do you feel about having back to back races on the same track?

MV: Well it depends how the first race went, but of course, it makes it a lot easier for everyone not having to travel somewhere else at the moment. Everybody knows the track; everybody has done a lot of laps. So it will be very close and the differences will be very marginal, but yeah, it's good a thing too if you issues in the first weekend to try some new stuff on the second weekend. It's going to be really different, but in a way it's maybe good to learn more about the car in the early races.

Is 2020 the first real chance for you to battle for the Championship?

MV: I hope so, it's so hard to say. One thing I know for sure is that we will do everything we can to fight for it. Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) are still the ones to beat, because they have been the dominant team for so long now. They are still very strong and will be hard to beat but as a Team we learnt a lot over the last year and I really think that we are stronger. We've got some good races coming up this season so I will of course try to close that gap and hopefully we can make it difficult for them, it will be a good challenge to try and beat them.

Honda have been working hard over the winter, do you think they have done enough to close the gap?

MV: Honda for sure worked very hard over the winter again and it all looked very solid at testing in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). Our top speed looked decent, so I'm very happy with the work that has been done. Honda are very motivated and want to fight for the title like we do.

How did you react to the sudden cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix?

Alex Albon: I would say on a personal side the whole feeling of that situation in Australia was obviously very unique. You have so much adrenaline building up, I think that coming into winter testing and then having that mental preparation, the whole team has that atmosphere that we're going racing, and everyone is streamlined, and everything is going in an upwards trajectory.

I remember sleeping in my hotel that night, and getting amped, it was Friday, it's FP1 on a street track like Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne), you don't sleep that well, and then that morning I was just having breakfast and just got told 'we've booked you a flight back' so it's very strange, and it kind of resets you. You feel like 'what's my purpose?' kind of thing. And you go back, and it was a reset. We were just waiting until we got this date which is now in Austria. Now the season restart has been confirmed, I'm excited to get started again. My first day back at the factory after shutdown felt like my first day back at school. It was nice after all this time away from racing to get back to it finally.

Arriving home from Australia, what did you do to keep busy whilst plans for the 2020 season were up in the air?

AA: Coming back to the UK, the first thing was really just making sure, I think as a team we were very cautious with just the situation. We obviously had a couple of outbreaks inside the paddock and I think that was the first thing as a team, safety first, so we all isolated really, and there isn't much you can do. It was very much stay at home, the first thing I did was speak to the guys at the factory to collect some gym equipment because I had none at home, and just have everything ready so I could top up (fitness) but without having a date you were kind of just living day by day not having so much of a focus and to keep the motivation was not easy actually. You were just kind of waiting for news and speaking with Christian, just getting texts, the odd updates of what was happening, but that was about it. We're athletes so it's our job so we're still making sure we're ready at any moment, but it was just a weird situation, especially because I have never spent this long away from a racing seat since I first started which was when I was seven (years old).

What have you missed most about racing?

AA: I've missed just the feeling of the speed, being in the car, kind of that process of arriving to the track and perfecting on a lap, and pushing it to the limits, it feels very strange to be at home and not having that sense of speed. Doing the filming day was just a highlight of that where I was a bit like 'my god, this thing is so fast!' You kind of think it feels so good to be back in it.

After so long without racing or travelling, how important is it to be 100% ready from Round 1?

AA: We are going from one of the quietest periods of time, to one of the busiest we will have ever experienced. It's going to be crazy for all of us. The whole atmosphere is going to be really different. There will be no fans, which is really what makes the sport, so that will also add to how strange it's all going to feel. Racing week after week for however long is going to be tough for everyone in the Team, and it's going to be important to start the first few races strong. We didn't run in Australia so everyone is going to be learning and I think the teams that really get into the racing rhythm first will be the best and the ones to beat. It's important to go into the first race with as much energy as you can - it will be about maintain your energy and keeping it as high as you can for as long as you can.

How do you feel and are you ready to hit the ground running in Austria?

AA: I feel good. There's so much time that, with any driver, there's going to be that level of uncertainty as to what's going to happen. I'm glad I did the filming day to get that initial dust off my shoulders but I'm excited, I think we've all been waiting for this. There's been a long drought, we all do this because we love it and we've missed it, so I can't wait to get started.

How will having back to back races at the same circuit affect the way you approach the weekend?

AA: The dynamic is more or less very similar on that first race weekend, so the first race weekend you would treat like another one, procedural things like FP1, FP2, FP3 would always be the same. Where it changes most probably is that second weekend where you've got a perfect opportunity to directly compare to your first weekend, try some things which are very risky to try during a normal race weekend because it's a new track and everything has changed. Now you've got the same circuit, pretty much the same weather and you can try things so I'm sure every team is going to treat the second weekend with a bit more risk and try some things out because you know if it doesn't work out you can go back to your first weekend car.

At same circuit back to back races, do you think the fastest team and driver at race one will be the same at race two?

AA: If the people are fastest by a good chunk then it's always hard to get that lap time back but saying that, yeah there's a good chance there's going to be differences and that's where I think top teams like ourselves will have to go through that data, be careful with our feedback as drivers to maximise and focus on the areas we need to improve on after that first race.

With the calendar not finalised and the number and location of races not fixed, is there added focus to maximise every race this season?

AA: Just because there's an unknown kind of feeling of even how many races we're going to do, what circuits we're going to go to, there's no change in our job and that's really just to maximise every weekend - that's all there is to it. Being back to back to back, we will have less time to prepare, unlike a normal weekend where we do some simulator, and of course there will be tracks which we've never been to, but I think that's a good opportunity. I think the good teams will be quite flexible, the same with the drivers, being on top of it and understanding the car and the tracks as quick as possible, and I think that's an area where as a team I believe we will be pretty successful. Just looking historically at how Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) are good at interpreting and getting up to speed quickly. It should be good!

In this condensed 2020 season, will driver fitness play a bigger part in performance this year?

AA: I think there's definitely an element to it. The first two races not too much, Austria is quite an easy circuit with few corners and quite a lot of breathing time in between with the long straights. Once we get to Hungary, that will quickly change and normally we will arrive to Hungary with how ever many rounds we've done and so by the time we're there, it's all easy flowing. It will be three weeks (in a row) so we won't have much rest. It does play a part, Hungary, Singapore last year for instance, there is performance in your fitness so yeah it will do, if it's a tie breaker we'll see.

Is the pre-season form guide still accurate given it was so long ago now?

AA: Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) already from winter testing is quite inconclusive. You don't know where the teams are, but everyone has a fairly good understanding of where everyone is at, adding another four months on top of that, it really jumbles up everything. There has obviously been a summer factory shutdown, which means teams haven't really had too much time to play around with it.

How important is it to qualify well at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring or are there opportunities in the race?

AA: With such few corners it is hard to maximise your car in terms of making a difference so qualifying is generally pretty close, but at the same time it really doesn't define what happens in the race as we've seen in the past two years with Max. A good car can really save the tyres there, temperatures are normally really hot as well so I'm sure it won't be any different. The main thing is just to wait and see. I think coming from winter testing we've a good car and I'm sure even from the filming day we did, everything feels pretty good so we'll see.

Lastly, we will have a new "normal" way of working with the COVID-19 protocols in Austria. How have you found it so far?

AA: It seems to be extremely well organised already. It is going to be quite complicated but from my experience with the guys at the factory, they are all on top of it already. I was at the factory and the lengths the Team is going to is great to see. It's more about just keeping safe. We are going to be travelling and together a lot, we are going to be in our own little bubble. We all have to be really careful with everything at all times.

Talk us through how the team have kept morale high during the extended shutdown?

Christian Horner: Well it's highly unusual for a Grand Prix team to go into hibernation for what was essentially two and a half months so obviously during that period you want to retain that sense of team. So activities, whether it be online fitness classes, Friday night quizzes, town hall meetings where the staff would have the ability to ask me questions, passing on information and updates, keeping the drivers engaged with the team members as well, were all hugely important during what was a very uncertain time.

Tell us about how you worked with the other Team Principals in order to secure the future of the sport?

CH: During the lockdown there was a lot of work that went on behind the scenes with current and future regulations and there was a sense of camaraderie to try and find a majority of solutions with that because it was in the interests of not just individual teams but the whole sport. Things like delaying the introduction of the new regulations, reducing the cost cap to a responsible level, sensible compromises were found and that's when there is a crisis the collaboration of the teams can be very effective.

Is there more fine tuning and clarification needed on the new regulations?

CH: As we return to racing of course there's going to be things to fine tune in this new environment that's obviously going to be a lot more restricted in terms of our activities so inevitably there's going to be tuning there. With the new regulations for 2022, I'm sure there's going to be clarifications, on the financial regulations which are all new, again I'm sure there's going to be further clarifications, but the bulk of the big ticket items have certainly been dealt with.

How much preparation has gone in behind the scenes from Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) in order to safely host the first race of the season?

CH: From very early on in the pandemic Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) were keen to help and as races dropped off (the calendar) they set their sights firmly on getting Formula One going again, so thanks to Dietrich Mateschitz and the whole of Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull). The effort that's gone into getting this race off the ground, working closely with the promoter, the guys from liberty and the governing body, a huge amount of effort has gone into providing the right and safe environment to get Formula One running again and not only one weekend in Austria but two, so we'll get to enjoy two weekends at what is essentially our home Grand Prix.

What measures are in place to protect team personnel and the communities we visit when we return to racing?

CH: There's been a huge focus on protecting staff and all members in Formula One and the host countries that we're going to, so teams will essentially work within their own isolated bubbles. We won't be sharing hotels, our hospitality units won't be at the races, we'll be wearing face masks during any sessions on the pit wall, there won't be the usual pre-race build up with the grid, or maybe even podium ceremonies, so life will be quite different but it's all focused on creating a safe environment. Testing is becoming de rigueur as we are constantly tested throughout the process of going back to racing so it's all providing a safe and controlled environment.

Are you excited about the return to racing?

CH: Well Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne) feels like an awfully long time ago now and to think that we're only starting our season at what would be pretty much the midway point is a little strange, but the racer in us all just wants to get going again. It was great to see the car at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and it reminds you of what it's all about, why we're working so hard and what our goals are, so it's going to be exciting to get racing again. It's going to be different, but I think when those lights go out and we're focused on our cars and the competition, it's all going to be about what happens on track.

What is the key to mounting a championship campaign in such a short and condensed season?

CH: It's going to be crucial to be reliable. There's going to be a lot of races that come thick and fast and it's going to be an intense period for everybody involved. They're going from 0 to 100mph from having not raced since November last year, we're going to be in July so over seven months downtime for these drivers. It's going to be an exciting first few laps, and it's going to be important to maximise our chances and opportunities. It's an unusual year, but maybe that's what we need to take the challenge to the all dominant Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) who have won everything for the past six years.

Do you think this F1 season could be one of the most exciting we have seen?

CH: I think this is going to be a fantastic season. Sure, I think the drivers will have an element of race rustiness, but these guys are professionals, they'll get over that pretty quickly I've got no doubt. It's going to be intense and it's going to be slightly different to what we're used to and that brings different pressure and dynamics so I'm really looking forward to it and I think we're well positioned to hopefully have our strongest year since 2013.

Do you think Max feels the pressure as he is positioned by the media as Lewis' main title challenger?

CH: Well we all go into the first race with the same amount of points, so I think the pressure on Max is no different to previous years. I think he recognises we had a good winter, we came out of pre-season testing well, Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) were still the form team to beat but it felt like we had some real potential in our car so that's going to be crucial as we head into the season. For sure they start the season as the favourites, but I sincerely hope and believe in Max and Alex that we have a very strong team and hopefully we can provide them with the equipment and tools to mount a challenge on Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) this year.

This is only Alex's second season in F1. What are the team looking for from him this season?

CH: For Alex, people do forget it's his second season in Formula One and he's missed sort of the first half of that so it's been a baptism by fire but he coped with that incredibly well last year. He seems to deal with pressure very well and I think we're just looking for him to make progress on where he finished last season. I think opportunities will present themselves for him and I really think he could be the surprise of the season in many respects this year.

How much has the RB16 been developed since Australia and do we know where we stand going into Austria?

CH: We don't really know where we stand going into Austria and of course the car would have been developed. There would have been updates at the first European races at Zandvoort and Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), there would have been further updates for Montreal (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/12/montreal), so of course all the updates that were in the pipeline prior to the shutdown, plus whatever we've learned subsequent to the shutdown, have been implemented to the car so there are subtle revisions all over the car as part of that update process which I'm sure the other front running teams have also done. We also have an engine upgrade as we essentially introduce what would have been engine number two, which becomes our first engine, so in all aspects of the car there has been an awful lot of work go into and it's been a race against the clock to get those updates onto the car since reopening the factory at the beginning of June.

How has the relationship with Honda developed as the team moves into a second season with them?

CH: As we head into our second year of our Honda relationship it feels much more integrated within the Team. We enjoyed a great debut season with Honda winning three races, and of course now we're looking to build on that. They're ambitious, they share the same ambitions that we do, they've been working tremendously hard during the off-season and of course come into this year with higher expectations. It's a key part of the car and a key partner for us as we move forward and look to mount a challenge for championships in the future.

Austrian GP: Preview - Ferrari

The long wait is over: 109 days ago, overnight from Thursday 12 to Friday 13 March, the Australian GP was cancelled and Formula 1, along with all other sports, was stopped by the ferocity of a global pandemic that left many locked down at home. Fans discovered the delights of virtual racing with work in the Formula 1 factories also coming to a halt, restarting slowly in May.Formula 1 and the FIA immediately began work to prepare for a restart and now it's here.

Formula 1 is the first international sport of any kind to restart since Covid-19 and because it is not yet eradicated, it means that spectators are not allowed to attend the races, while the teams must reduce the number of personnel at the track and everyone involved must follow strict protocols. The paddock will experience a new normality involving words like "bubble", "subgroup" and "social distancing".

Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) will take to the track in Austria with a message of support for Alex Zanardi, following the racing driver and Paralympic champion's terrible accident on 19 June while taking part in a handbike event to promote sport for those with disabilities. He is currently fighting for his life in a Siena hospital. The two cars will carry the #ForzaAlex message on either side of the roll hoop, just under the camera on the engine air intake.

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) and Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and the entire team are ready to give it their all on the circuit set in the Styrian mountains. Sunday sees the 33rd running of the Austrian Grand Prix, the first one dating back to 1964, which was held on an L-shaped track at Zeltweg aerodrome. Lorenzo Bandini won in a Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) 156 F1-63 after which the race was not held until 1970, when it returned on the new Osterreichring, almost 6 kilometres long, wending its way through the climbs and drops between the towns of Zeltweg and Spielberg. It was last used in 1987, returning 10 years later after the track had been remodelled and reduced to 4.3 kilometres. The new Spielberg hosted the race from 1997 to 2003 and a further change of owner saw the Austrian Grand Prix reclaim its place on the calendar regularly from 2014.

Last year, Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) finished second and fourth here with Charles and Sebastian respectively. It's a very fast track and a lap takes just over 60 seconds. There are three DRS zones, on the main straight, on the run to turns 1 and 2, and on the straight from turns 2 to 3.

Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) has won five times in Austria: with Lorenzo Bandini in 1964, Jacky Ickx in 1970, Eddie Irvine in 1999 and Michael Schumacher in 2002 and 2003. There have been eight poles, the last one coming last year courtesy of Leclerc, as well as five fastest race laps and a total of 25 podium finishes.

What really counts for everyone is being back on track, racing in safe conditions. It's another reason why this Austrian Grand Prix at Spielberg, almost the 1000th in which Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) has taken part, is one of the most important ever. This Grand Prix will also see all the cars carrying the #WeRaceAsOne sticker, which the Maranello team was pleased to debut in its test at Mugello last Tuesday.

The initiative recently launched by Formula 1 intends to promote positive change in the sport and in society in light of the current pandemic and also racial inequality, themes along with those linked to respect for the environment and gender equality on which Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) has been working for some time now. This race will also be the first opportunity for the teams to go head to head and deliver a realistic picture of the current pecking order, four months on from the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) tests.


Mattia Binotto Team Principal: "This weekend the car will run in the same configuration used towards the end of the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) tests. This doesn't mean we have been twiddling our thumbs in the very limited time of just five and a half weeks in which we were able to work on the cars, because of the stringent procedures involved in working around the pandemic as well as the total shutdown of activities required by the FIA in agreement with the teams.

"The truth is that the outcome of the tests led us to take a significant change of direction in terms of development, especially on the aerodynamic front. First, we had to understand why we did not see the results we had expected on track and how much to recalibrate the whole programme as a result. It would have been counterproductive to continue in the direction we had planned, knowing that we would not have reached our goals. Therefore we decided to come up with a new programme that looked at the whole car, knowing that not all of it would be ready for the first race.

"Our aim is to introduce the updates at the third race on 19 July at the Hungaroring (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/6/budapest). Apart from that, over and above the actual development of the car itself, these past few weeks we have worked a lot on analysing its behaviour, with simulation work and with the help of our drivers and I think that will prove its worth in Austria.

"We know that, at the moment, we don't have the fastest package. We knew it before heading for Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne) and that hasn't changed. Having said that, the Spielberg circuit has different characteristics to Montmelo and the temperatures will be well above those of February. In Austria, we must try and make the most of every opportunity and then in Hungary, with the new development step we are working on, we will be able to see where we are really compared to the others, while having to take into account the developments our competitors themselves will have brought along.

"The truth is that trying to make predictions at the start of such an unusual season is even more pointless than usual. There will be a few pointers come the end of the three hours of Friday practice, but a more accurate idea will be available after Saturday's qualifying. Only then will we start to have a clearer picture of the hierarchy among the teams, but then there is always the uncertainty that comes with the opening round, in terms of reliability and tyre performance over a race distance. We must try and be perfect in everything we do, in preparing for every session and in how we carry out our tasks. The aim? To bring home as many points as possible, as is always the case in fact."

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It's no secret that we're all really keen to get back on track, as it's been such a long time now. At the start, the break was enjoyable, as usually we are always travelling around the world and we have little time to spend with family and friends, but the time has come to get back on track.

"I'm ready to give it my all, even if it won't be the same without the fans there supporting us. The Austrian track is like a carousel that goes round really quickly but I like it a lot, especially as it is high in the mountains which I love.

"We have to be realistic when it comes to the pecking order seen at the tests, but we are not downhearted. It will also be unusual doing two races in a row here as for the second one we will have a lot of data to work with. What we do in the first weekend will have an important effect on the second."

Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "I like the Spielberg circuit very much, because of all its changes of gradient and its high speeds. It's nice to be starting again there, even if we won't be able to see the support of our fans at the track.

"During the long lockdown, I spent time working on my physical training and also doing quite a lot of virtual racing on my simulator, having fun with other drivers and I hope it was also entertaining for those watching from home. But now it's time to get back in the cockpit of a real car.

"Last week in Mugello, we were able to get into a Formula 1 car again and I have to say it was really enjoyable to be back behind the wheel."

Austrian GP: Preview - AlphaTauri

Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "After Australia was cancelled, I went to Dubai as that had always been my plan to go there before moving onto Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) for the second race. I thought I’d spend two or three days there to see how the situation evolved. Then we saw that Italy had shut its airports, so I couldn’t go back there and I also did not want to go back to France and maybe put my family at risk after all the flights I’d been on.

So, I decided to stay in Dubai with my trainer and we effectively had a two month training camp. Restrictions in Dubai were pretty much the same as in Europe and you had to wear a mask and gloves to go outside the apartment."Eventually, I returned to France in mid-May which was a strange experience, with an almost deserted Dubai airport and no direct flights to France so I had to go via Frankfurt. Everything ran late, I missed my train and ended up with a seven hour drive to get home! It felt good to spend some time with them, because usually I don’t see them much during the year. I’ve never had such a long break from racing or from flying, as we’re usually at an airport every few days. Nor have I ever spent two months in one place before, since I was maybe ten years old.

"In Dubai, I probably trained for 58 days out of 60, so physically I’m in the best shape of my life and I’ve really improved. I spent some time playing on line with some friends and I also decided to improve my Italian and took some lessons on line. I also worked on getting my boat pilot’s license, as well as doing some real karting and playing golf. When I got back home to France, I continued with the karting and also took part in the virtual F1 and Le Mans races which was a fantastic experience. It was fun and filled the time. I also kept in touch with the team, talking to Franz every week, as well as my engineer. Then finally, we got to drive a real Formula 1 car again at Imola for the filming day, first in the 2018 car and then in this year’s. It was incredible, especially at Imola, one of my favourite tracks, where I last raced in 2012. It made me super happy.

"I miss racing, the adrenaline, the competition and the speed, so it’s super that we can start again. It's going to be really busy with a race nearly every week, so it’s a very exciting time right now. It’s a shame there will be no fans at the first few races, but I feel it was important to get the season started as soon and as safely as possible. Hopefully things will free up in the coming months.

"I trust all the safety requirements to be in place. There are certainly plenty of restrictions in terms of how we can move about and talk to people, with all sorts of health related rules in place. It’s not straightforward and we will take all the necessary precautions. For the drivers, at least when we are in the car, it will all seem like normal. It's outside that things are more complicated."

Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "After the race in Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne) was cancelled, I just wanted to get home as quickly as possible, because that’s where you want to be in these kind of times. As soon as I got back, the lockdown started so I was pretty much in quarantine in my home in Monaco. It was interesting times, a bit different, but we tried to adapt to find some different things to do, including some sport as it was important not be just sitting around doing nothing. Some aspects of it were not so bad and I slept a bit more than usual! But after a while it became quite monotonous. It was the longest time I went without driving a real race car apart from when I had a year off from Formula 1, so I have experienced this sort of long break before.

"As soon as the karting tracks were opened up again at the beginning of May, I was there right away. It was good to be driving again and I did quite a lot of it and it was a useful way of keeping alive your muscle memory for driving and racing, as well as being enjoyable.

"During the lockdown, I kept in touch with Mattia my race engineer. In fact, I have a small simulator at home and together with him, we did a few qualifying simulations. I would connect him via an iPad that I had next to me and we would simulate a qualifying session and he would talk to me as though we were doing it for real on an actual track. That was the best we could do. I know a lot of the other F1 drivers did a lot of this sim racing, but I have to say it’s not really my thing as I don’t feel it’s very representative of driving an actual car. At the moment, I have not been able to come to the UK and use the team’s real simulator because of all the quarantine restrictions in place, so we will have to see how that situation develops in the next few weeks.

"As for the actual racing and how this season develops, we will just take it one race at a time. I will race where I am told to do so on the basis that the people who run the sport have done their work and decided it’s safe to do so for ourselves and everyone around us. I trust that we are in good hands and that we will have an adequate calendar to follow and execute. I hope there will be no unexpected surprises. As for keeping masks on at all times at the track, we worked under these conditions at our recent filming day and I’d say it’s something you get used to quite quickly, just like when the Halo was first introduced for example. You get used to it after a few hours. One thing we will have to get used to will be the lack of fans. it will be weird to see the empty grandstands, the crowd is an important aspect of all sport and we will be missing it.


"As to how we will get on, it’s hard to say. In terms of track data to look at, we only have what we acquired in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) in the winter. We will turn up in Austria with a good plan to tackle the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring and then we will see. It’s a track I like, with an old-skool layout featuring plenty of fast corners and I’ve always enjoyed racing there. We will be there for quite a while with the two races back to back and it’s a nice place to be, in the countryside so it means we can put in some training time in the fresh air."

Austrian GP: Preview - McLaren


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "After a long and difficult time away from racing, it's finally time to get back at it! It's been my longest period without competing since I started in go-karts many years ago! The MCL35 felt really good during winter testing, a positive continuation of what we had last year, so I'm very excited to finally compete this season. It's also been an interesting period away from track, but now we're back to racing I'm completely focused on the 2020 season.

Due to less races in the calendar and the strong competition we expect from our direct rivals we can't afford to lose concentration. We actually don't even know the amount of races we are going to do, it's an unprecedented scenario, so every point we can get is absolutely crucial. As always, I will do everything to perform at my highest level and help the team. I've been keeping fit and ready to get back in the car, so I'm ready to hit the ground running in FP1."Last year we did well in Austria, having to battle into the points from the back of the grid due to a penalty, so we know there are plenty of opportunities for on-track overtakes. However, it's difficult to confidently predict our performance given the time away from track.

The double header at the same circuit presents a new challenge for everyone and we need to make sure we extract the maximum out of it. I know that by the time the lights go out on Sunday, we'll be more than ready to fight for the best position possible."

Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "I can't wait to get back into a Formula 1 car, it's been a long time coming! This break has been the longest I've ever taken since I started racing at seven years old, I'm really looking forward to it. I've been working hard throughout this period away from track to stay sharp and ready to go racing again. I've been training at home a lot and spending plenty of time on my simulator. I've also managed to get some karting and F3 sessions in with Carlos over the last few weeks to help get race ready as best I can.

"I'm pleased we're getting started again in Austria, it's a great, fast, track and we performed well there last year. It will be an interesting challenge to race there two weekends in a row, but also a great opportunity to analyse how the first race could have panned out differently and adjust our strategy for the second. I expect all of the grid will be feeling a bit rusty going into FP1, but I'm sure we'll all be back up to speed when it comes to qualifying on Saturday. It will be a real shame not to have the fans at the track as we feel their support, but safety is the priority and we'll be doing everything we can to give them a good show."

Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "It's been a long wait, but we're finally ready to get the 2020 season underway. I know that the fans, our drivers and our team have been waiting a long time for this moment and are all excited and hungry to get out there again. This temporary break in our sport has only made us more motivated to fight again. We're looking forward to getting back to racing and going for the competition as hard as we can. It will be odd heading to track without fans in the grandstands, we feel their support everywhere we go and will be doing our best to put on a good show for those watching from the safety of their homes.

"Our preparation for Austria has been a balance between building enough parts to get through an intense period of races and updating and developing the car. The team is back up and running again, whether at home or in the factory, and we're working hard to keep improving the car however we can. We have also spent some time getting used to the new working practices that will enable us to race safely, and we thank Formula 1, the FIA, the circuit and local authorities for their work on this. As one of the first international sports to restart, we value their commitment to keeping our team and the wider paddock safe.

"Two races in Austria presents an interesting new challenge for us. We were strong there last year but, with the uncertainty caused by the delayed start to the season, we will need to be operating at 100% to maximise our performances in both races. I know the whole team, Lando and Carlos are all excited by this challenge and we've been working hard to make sure we hit the ground running in Austria."

Austrian GP: Preview - Alfa Romeo

Every season start is painted as the harbinger of change: the new cars, on which hopes and expectations are pinned by teams and fans alike; new venues to explore; new weekend formats with which to experiment. But what happens when the season start is, actually, a restart?

The 2020 season will always be remembered as one in which the world of Formula One - and, of course, the world at large - got turned on its head. In the light of the Covid-19 outbreak and the suffering it brought, sport, no matter how loved, took a secondary role: but as the planet starts re-emerging from its widespread lockdowns, we are ready to once again focus on what we love doing. Racing cars.


In recent times, the longest we'd go between seasons were the frantic three-ish months between the final post-test pack-up in the Abu Dhabi heat and the first laps in (chillier) Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona): three months of car development, feverish parts-building and media work, three months in which hardly a breath was taken. Once things got going in Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne), summer shutdown would be the only break, two weeks in which the factories would close and the F1 community would collectively relocate to places with names starting with "Playa del" and the only pit that mattered was a barbecue one.

And yet, seven months on from the last race in 2019 and nearly four since the paddock last congregated in Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne), we are ready to race again. Which leads to the original question - what will happen once the cars line up in Austria?

This season, we will be confronted with unique circumstances, on and off the track. With restrictions put in place to guarantee the safety of all competitors and staff, consecutive races in the same venue (devoid of fans), and a clearer view of what the future, in the shape of the rules for 2021, 2022 and beyond, looks like, Formula One is back in a new guise. We will make our first, tentative steps in the new paddock, build our cars while wearing PPE and observing distancing rules, then race in this new race weekend format.

What will the pecking order look like? It is hard to tell now. The midfield will be close, as always. A tenth here and there may result in the two races in Austria looking completely different one from the other. Teams will assess the developments they managed to squeeze in during the little time at the factory since Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne). The early-season jitters could bring some surprises. All in all, it will be a classic season opener, full of "what if" and "if only" moments, unpredictability and excitement. It will be different, but it will be what we have been looking for.

What will not change is the determination to do well, the commitment of the team and the desire to go back out there, feeling the track underneath us and hearing the roar of the engines.

Frederic Vasseur: "It has been so long since the last race in Abu Dhabi, so obviously we are eager to go back to racing: this is what drives us on and what we have been working for all season. Of course, the situation will be different, given the restrictions forced on us by the pandemic: but we are confident in the measures the FIA and Formula One have taken to keep us all safe. The first race of the season is often a chaotic affair and that's when opportunities arise: we will need to be ready to take any that come our way. Racing again here in a week's time will be a new experience for all of us, but we expect the midfield battle to be so close to make both races really open and unpredictable."

Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It will feel a bit weird to get back to racing in these conditions, but I am sure that once we are in the car we will not focus on the restrictions but just on doing the best job we can. The break was a chance to spend time with my family but now we have to focus on the job. With so many races in so little time, we need to make the most of every event and score points every time we get the chance. It's hard to tell where everyone stands, but we will find out soon enough."

Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "We return to action this week and I cannot wait to be in the car. It has been a very sombre few months for everyone, and with my family and so many friends back home in Italy, I was particularly touched by it. To go back to racing feels like another step towards some sort of normality. I am curious to see how everyone does in Austria and to see what happens with two races in the same venue; it's a first for Formula One so it will be something we will need to adapt to. As for being rusty after so many months away, I am not worried about that: I didn't race for two years between 2017 and 2019, so, if anything, I will try to turn that into an advantage."

Austrian GP: Preview - Racing Point

What's the best thing about Austria?

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "Austria is awesome! It feels like home out there. You're up in the mountains and I'm definitely a mountain guy. I'm big into my skiing and I love the outdoors. You can really soak up the fresh air and all that spectacular scenery in Austria. I really love going there."

Just how challenging is it to perfect a lap of the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring?

LS: "It's short and technical which makes it feel really tight - but it's got a really nice flow to it too. It's only just over a minute for a Quali lap, so every corner has to be spot on. It's almost like a kart track in that sense. Every detail of the lap and every hundredth of a second matters. Those sorts of fractions can be the difference between two or three positions on the grid - and that makes it really exciting."


What do you think of when people talk about Austria?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I first raced there in 2014, so only a few years ago. I haven't spent as much time as I'd like in Austria away from the track - but it's a place that I really enjoy visiting. It's a really unique venue with beautiful scenery - you really feel like you're surrounded by nature. It's also the home race for BWT, who have been really supportive of us over the years, so it's important for us to put on a great race for them."


What's the trickiest part of the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring?

SP: "It's quite a challenging track, actually. It's a really short lap and every corner is tricky, so you've got to be very precise and make sure that every single one is perfect. It's quite different to most tracks in that sense, because there's more pressure than normal on a single lap. Turn 3 is one of the best challenges. It can be hard to spot your apex point - especially in traffic - but it's a cool corner and one that I enjoy."

Five Things to Look Out for in Spielberg

At just over a minute, a lap of the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring is one of the shortest on the Formula 1 calendar. With minimal time for decision making and the slightest error potentially costing several grid positions, this is one of the most hotly contested Qualifying sessions of the season.

The DRS effect in Austria is the biggest of the season, with a significant percentage of the short lap potentially spent with the rear wing slot open should a driver be within one second of a rival at each detection point around the circuit.

Second only to Mexico City and São Paulo in terms of altitude, the reduced air density in Spielberg not only results in cars effectively having less downforce, but also makes Power Unit and brake cooling a significant challenge - particularly when fighting in a close pack.

Recent seasons have seen temperatures soar in this part of Austria, with a combination of hot asphalt and high average corner speeds putting a significant amount of stress on the tyres.

The steep incline leading into Turn 3 at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring makes it a corner that's big on braking and big on overtaking, with some spectacular last-gasp lunges taking place here over the years.

Austrian GP: Preview - Haas

The FIA Formula One World Championship is ready to get its re-arranged 2020 season underway and Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team is geared up to end a prolonged period without competition, commencing with the Austrian Grand Prix, hosted at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring in Spielberg.


The much anticipated 70th anniversary campaign was due to begin in Australia back in March but the coronavirus pandemic caused the cancellation of the event and the abandonment of several others, as Formula One chiefs forged a path through the global crisis.

The wheels of Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team's 2020 Formula One car, the VF-20, have not turned in anger since February 28, when six days of pre-season testing at the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya came to a close. It has been one of the longest periods without Formula One activity in the championship's distinguished history, and everyone is eager to return to racing in a safe and sanitized environment at Spielberg to unleash the 2020 spectacle for the first time.

To enable a grand prix to take place under revised conditions Formula One team personnel will practice social distancing, observe hygiene protocols, with travel and accommodation arranged in a responsible manner. Paddock personnel will be regularly checked and tested for coronavirus and its symptoms.

The 4.318km (2.683mi) Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring, located in the small Spielberg commune, has only 10 turns but the short lap time leaves very little room for error, with any mistake amplified. It will be the 33rd time that Formula One has raced at the venue but the first time that Spielberg has hosted Formula One's season-opener. It is also the first time that the curtain-raiser has taken place on European soil since 1966 - 50 years before Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team took its maiden steps in the championship.

Returning to Austria brings back positive memories as in 2018 it was the location for Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team's best ever Formula One result, when Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) led home team-mate Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) to finish fourth and fifth respectively, bringing home a haul of 22 points. It has historically been a strong track for Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team, with Grosjean finishing seventh in the team's rookie campaign in 2016, following it up with sixth in 2017, while Magnussen qualified an excellent fifth in 2019.

The Austrian Grand Prix will take place across July 3 to 5, with two practice sessions on Friday, final practice and qualifying on Saturday, and the 71-lap season-opening race on Sunday.

With Formula 1 launching its #WeRaceAsOne initiative ahead of the return to racing in Austria, how proud are you that the sport has taken this stance in addressing social issues?


Guenther Steiner: "We all know there are two big social issues highlighted in the world right now, both still very much on-going and in the spotlight. One is obviously the Covid-19 pandemic, the other is racism. I think we're in a good position to fight them both, very differently, but we will stand up and fight them. We have done this, and we will continue to do this."

While many in the sport have been unable to fulfil their roles due to a lack of on-track action, the past few months have presumably been amongst some of the busiest in your career. What are the positives you've been able to extract from this period and will it change some elements as to how the sport executes its business?

GS: "There are always positives in everything. I would have liked to have made them under different circumstances, but I think the positives are everybody got together - the teams, F1 and the FIA, and we came up with ideas how to make the sport better going into the future. I hope then, in the future, we remember this time and don't forget about it. I hope that we're not just thinking about ourselves in three years and so on and not trying to do the best for the sport, both for the mid to long-term future."

There's been a lot of talk about 'preparedness' with regards to the Austrian Grand Prix. How well do you feel the team and drivers have readied themselves for what's ahead?

GS: "I think we're as ready as we can be. Everybody on the team is highly motivated to get back out there and go racing again. They want to go out there and do their job, not just be sitting at home waiting on news as to what's happening next. The drivers obviously kept on training. I know Kevin (Magnussen), for example, has been doing a lot of karting, Romain (Grosjean) has been doing a lot of sim racing. Basically, we're ready, we cannot wait."

Four months after testing in Spain concluded, qualifying in Austria will provide the first real look at where everyone stacks up. What do you expect your emotions to be sitting on the pit-wall as the cars head out?

GS: "The emotions will be pretty high because at some stage we didn't know if we'd be continuing or not. The world seemed to be going downhill pretty quick in March, now four months later we get to go out racing again. Emotionally, for sure, it'll be a good moment."

Do you feel back-to-back races at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring provides a valuable opportunity to benchmark the performance of the VF-20?

GS: "It's a new situation to have two races at the same track in the one year, especially one week after the other. We'll have to see how it works out. Undoubtedly, we will learn a lot in the first weekend and hopefully what we learn we can put in place for the second weekend. I'm just really looking forward to being back out racing and getting the most out of both events."

How much of a buzz do you get from the fans on a Grand Prix weekend and just how different will it feel without them?

GS: "For me, it's the first time in my career - which is pretty long, over 30 years in motorsport, that we won't have fans at an event. The fans are the backbone of any event. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a little bit longer this year to have the fans around us again. I'm sure they'll be back, and we'll be open to them returning as soon as they can. We just cannot do it now otherwise we would more than welcome them back. I hope all the fans tune in on television or on the internet when we race and come back when the opportunity arises for them. For sure though, we will miss them, but hope to see them soon."

Looking at the positives of the unexpected time away from racing you've experienced, what stands out for you personally?

Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "Obviously the time spent with my wife and my kids, that's been great spending so much time together. I also launched my esports team and started racing on the simulator for fun - it's been a lot of fun."

There's been a lot of talk about 'preparedness' with regards to the Austrian Grand Prix. Where do you stand on how ready you are to get back behind the wheel and compete - both mentally and physically?

RG: "I think physically I'm better than I've ever been. Obviously, the neck is the hard one to keep going. Mentally I'm also very much ready. I'm very eager to go racing. We haven't had the chance to drive our car like some of the other teams, but I don't think that will be an issue when we get back to racing in Austria."

Do you feel back-to-back races at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring provides a valuable opportunity to benchmark the performance of the VF-20?

RG: "No, because it's only one race track and one layout - a particular one too at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring. I don't think we can assess how the car behaves after the two races in Austria. I do hope it's going to be working well there so we can start our season on a high."

How much of a buzz do you get from the fans on a Grand Prix weekend and how do you try and replicate that acknowledging that we head into a period of 'closed-door' races without fans on-site?

RG: "It's going to be very different. We're going to miss the support of the fans and miss seeing them in the grandstands. We'll miss the enthusiastic atmosphere they bring to a weekend. It'll be strange, it'll be different, but everyone will adjust and get used to it. We're going racing, which is important for everyone, so then hopefully we can open the doors to the public very soon and get back to normal."

Looking at the positives of the unexpected time away from racing you've experienced, what stands out for you personally?

Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "For me personally, I'd say just the fact I was able to stay in the one place for more than a few weeks and sleep in the same bed, wake up and have the same thing for breakfast, basically get into daily routines that I haven't had for years. That's something that will be a positive when I stop traveling all the time - one day. That said, it doesn't really make up for the fact we haven't been racing. So, there have been positives, but they haven't outweighed all the negatives of the situation. I'd also say it was a learning opportunity, you get to know yourself a little better when you have all this time on your hands. I didn't know I'd enjoy this kind of daily routine as much as I did for example. I knew I'd miss driving but I didn't realize just how much I miss driving. It's been good to feel that, I knew I would, but I've always been busy racing."

There's been a lot of talk about 'preparedness' with regards to the Austrian Grand Prix. Where do you stand on how ready you are to get back behind the wheel and compete - both mentally and physically?

KM: "I don't feel too nervous about it. To give an example, in this time where we haven't been racing, I've picked up karting again. I've been away from karting for a lot of years. It really didn't take me any time to get back into it and be on the pace again. It's really been about 12 years since I was active in karting, with the odd occasion in-between in a kart. It only took a couple of runs and I was totally back into it. You never really forget it. It would have been better to be doing it every day, but motorsport isn't a sport like that.

"You can't compare it with tennis or golf - those athletes, if they missed a few months, would struggle going straight into a tournament if up against players who were training every day. In Formula One, nobody trains every day in the car, so I guess that's what makes the difference - we're all used to jumping straight in with not too much practice and getting on the pace. It's the same for everyone so it's not that big a factor I think."

Do you feel back-to-back races at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring provides a valuable opportunity to benchmark the performance of the VF-20?

KM: "I don't really know, it's a good question. I don't think it's going to be a benefit or a disadvantage. You of course learn more about the car with every track you go to, with different corner speeds, conditions, temperatures, tarmac and stuff like that. In that way, we'll learn slightly less, but it's going to be good just to get a read on where we stand compared to the other teams and to get racing again."

How much of a buzz do you get from the fans on a Grand Prix weekend and how do you try and replicate that acknowledging that we head into a period of 'closed-door' races without fans on-site?

KM: "There's no way to replicate it. It'll be very quiet and weird with no fans on-site. It is what it is, and we'll just have to try and make the best of it. We'll aim to have good, entertaining races to show on television. The atmosphere will obviously be different, not as good, but I'm personally very excited to get back in the car and get back to racing. I hope the fans will be able to have fun watching us on the telly."

Austrian GP: Preview - PirelliAfter a pause of more than three months since Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne), the 2020 season finally gets underway with the tyre choice that was always planned for Austria: C2 as the P Zero White hard, C3 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and C4 as the P Zero Red soft.

This same tyre choice will apply for both races in Austria, which will be run on consecutive weekends for the first time, as part of the revised F1 2020 calendar.


The drivers already have experience of this nomination in Austria, because the same compounds were selected for the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring last year. As a reminder, the technical specification of the entire 2020 Pirelli Formula 1 tyre range is also identical to the 2019 specification.

Track Characteristics


The Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring - the ancestor of the famous Osterreichring - consists of a short but action-packed lap, with up and down smooth asphalt. It's all about traction and braking: as well as avoiding the traffic in qualifying. The short lap also means that the performance gap between the compounds is set to be very small.


With both races being held in early July, ambient temperatures are very likely to be high. However, the track's location in the Northern Styrian Alps means that variable weather can be also become a possibility.


In the past, this has traditionally been a one-stop race. The majority of corners are right-handers, but the two most demanding corners are actually left-handers: which means that the unloaded tyres go into them relatively cold each time.


In the past, the Spielberg circuit has generated blistering, especially in hot weather. Last year, with the introduction of the 2019 tyre specification, this phenomenon as greatly reduced, particularly at the rear (even though temperatures were considerably warmer than in 2018).


Mario Isola: "After a long enforced break, we're excited to finally get back to competition! This year's Austrian Grand Prix will have a slightly different look to it, with no spectators and special measures against Covid-19, but we were actually already implementing some of these procedures at the Australian Grand Prix, so operationally we have some previous experience of these unusual circumstances.

The tyres are exactly the same as last year, so probably the biggest variable element will be the 'rust' that teams and drivers might have accumulated after such a long time away from a race weekend. To get back up to speed, some teams have recently run two-year-old cars in private testing or had filming days with the current cars. In both cases, these run on special tyres that are a long way from race specification, so everyone starts again this weekend on an absolutely level playing field.

Como cada GP, Albert Fábrega, nos muestra lo que observa de interés por el 'paddock':

Albert Fàbrega @AlbertFabrega Nuevos flaps superiores en ala delantera del @RenaultF1Team (https://twitter.com/RenaultF1Team) para generar más outwash. 3er elemento unido a zona neutra {en realidad, no lo está, como se puede comprobar en la foto de la comparativa de alas delanteras, que se muestra unos 'posts' más abajo, la barra de metal del soporte hace de espejo y lleva a confusión}. Interesante. Nueva pletina lateral.

FORMULA 1 ROLEX GROSSER PREIS VON ÖSTERREICH 2020 - Red Bull Ring - Spielberg
Resultados FP1
Viernes, 3 de julio de 2020


Meses esperando para que comenzara la temporada para ver cómo la clasificación sigue dominada por los Mercedes, con Lewis HAMILTON finalizando en primera posición y su compañero Valtteri BOTTAS siendo segundo.

Tras ellos han terminado Max VERSTAPPEN y Carlos SAINZ, que ha sido el primero en salir a la pista, mostrando una gran alegría por la radio :cunaooooo:.

Al inicio de la sesión los pilotos se lo han tomado con bastante calma para ir buscando los límites de la pista hacia el final de la sesión, lo que ha provocado unos cuantos errores, todos ellos sin consecuencias.

Romain GROSJEAN también ha empezado la temporada en la línea de la pasada, con problemas de frenos.

Sobre las puntuaciones que le dan a los coches, parece que las otorgan de esta manera:


David Izquierdo @davidizki (https://twitter.com/davidizki) ·17min (https://twitter.com/davidizki/status/1279059659589066753)

Puntuaciones: el 10 en curva rápida lo alcanzaría un coche que sea el más rápido en todas las zonas de curva rápida (o al menos esa es la forma más sencilla de definirlo y la que creo que usan).

Si todas las vueltas fuesen perfectas, entonces el mejor coche tendría siempre un 10. Pero errores (y diferencias entre las curvas, aun siendo clasificadas como curvas rápidas) hacen que el mejor coche en curva rápida no sea el más rápido en todas las curvas rápidas >> no sea =10

También pequeñas diferencias de setup entre compañeros de equipo pueden hacer que uno sea más rápido en unas curvas y el otro en otras, eso les resta puntuación a ambos. Tendría más sentido que lo definieran por equipo y no por piloto.

El fabricante francés Renault, no llevó a Austria ninguna especificación nueva de Unidad Motriz, por lo que disputarán toda la temporada con la empleada en pretemporada. Sí la han llevado a Austria, el fabricante japonés Honda y el alemán Mercedes, estos últimos, para solucionar problemas de fiabilidad encontrados durante la pretemporada:

Formula 1 volta as atividades, Hamilton lidera os treinamentos de Sexta na Áustria

Após 215 dias, Tivemos novamente atividades oficiais pela Formula 1. A Sexta-feira de treinamentos em Spierberg mostrou o domínio dos carros negros da Mercedes. Tanto no primeiro treino como no segundo treino, Hamilton acabou sendo o mais rápido. O Hexacampeão do mundo que liderou e possibilitou a sua equipe e a categoria como um todo a aderir à campanha antirracista, que explodiu pelo mundo inteiro após o assassinato covarde de George Floyd por um policial que usou de força bruta excessiva para deter o homem (Fator no qual Floyd foi asfixiado após várias vezes ter sido sufocado).
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sexta_2020-1.jpg

Seu companheiro de equipe Valtteri Bottas ficou com o segundo melhor tempo nas 2 sessões, com certa folga para os demais pilotos. Isso significa vitória certa para a Mercedes? Ainda não se pode falar isso, mas pelo desempenho de hoje é um meio caminho andado para até mesmo uma dobradinha da equipe campeã das últimas 6 temporadas.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sexta_2020-2.jpg

Ferrari e Red Bull não tiveram um dia fácil. As duas equipes que tentavam desafiar a equipe Alemã nos últimos anos. Ainda que Verstappen tenha conseguido o 3ºtempo na primeira sessão e Vettel com o 4ºtempo na sessão da tarde, Eles tiveram dificuldades, tanto é que Leclerc e Albon não apareceram nas primeiras posições. A Red Bull tem mais possibilidades de melhora. Já a Ferrari, vai ter mais dificuldades para alcançar um bom resultado na classificação.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sexta_2020-5-1024x683.jpg

A surpresa do momento foi a Racing Point. Com um projeto praticamente copiado da Mercedes mostrou que pode levar Sergio Perez e Lance Stroll fazerem um grande campeonato. O Mexicano ficou com o 3ºlugar na sessão da tarde, ficando na frente de Sebastian Vettel, no que dá as esperanças de um pódio principalmente para Chevo. Lance Stroll ficou abaixo do seu companheiro de equipe. Ainda assim, ficou com o 7ºlugar na sessão da tarde.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sexta_2020-13-1024x576.jpg

Mclaren que vive dificuldades financeiras (Tanto é que obteve um empréstimo de 150 milhões de Dólares através do seus patrocinadores) Também esta no bloco da frente nessa sexta-feira. Carlos Sainz ficou com o 4ºmelhor tempo da sessão da manhã e Lando Norris ficou em 6º nas duas sessões do dia. Espera-se um belo campeonato da equipe de Woking.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sexta_2020-10-1024x682.jpg

A Renault foi bem com Daniel Ricciardo e mais ou menos com Esteban Ocon. Isso leva a equipe Francesa a ser uma incógnita para a classificação amanhã e para a corrida no domingo. Kevin Magnussen ficou com o 9ºtempo com a Haas, mas não acredito que a equipe norte-americana dispute algo além da 2ªparte da tabela.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sexta_2020-19-1024x768.jpg

Outra que não deve brigar pelos 10 primeiros é a Alpha Tauri que teve Gasly bem a frente de Kvyat na sessão da manhã e Kvyat bem a frente de Gasly na sessão da tarde. Já a Alfa Romeo e a Williams parecem ser as equipes mais frágeis do grid. Apesar das últimas posições, A equipe de Frank Williams parece esta pelo menos no bolo, com possibilidades de disputar por zona de pontuação.

Com uma operação bem reduzida, a etapa da Formula 1 da Áustria tem 25% das pessoas que normalmente trabalham. E um aviso para que os Brasileiros saibam o que é um isolamento sério na Europa: Não temos publico nesse final de semana no Red Bull Ring. E isso vai se repetir pelo restante do ano público nos autódromos. Enquanto que no Rio, querem liberar público para os estádios. Só mesmo um maluco para fazer isso quando no Brasil se vive o auge do contagio da COVID-19, com mais de mil mortos por dia e dezenas de milhares de pessoas contaminadas.

Amanhã, O 3ºtreino livre acontece às 7 da manhã e a Classificação será realizada a partir das 10 da manhã.

Lo que nos han contado los equipos sobre esta primera jornada de GP:

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - Mercedes


Lewis set the fastest time in the morning session, with Valtteri ending FP1 in P2. He finished the afternoon session in P1 again, followed closely by Valtteri. The team focused on proving out the performance of several new developments on the car.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): It's great to be back. It's been a long time coming. The new car obviously feels different than the 2018 car we got to test at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) a few weeks ago, but I think we have also been able to continue to improve the car compared to last year, so that's a big positive. The track was a little bit greasy and while the grip will pick up, it feels like the track only improved a very small amount. It was looking good out there today, but you can never take too much from practice. You never know what power and fuel other teams are running. So we will take today's result with a pinch of salt, try and improve the car tonight and come back for the fight tomorrow.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): It's fantastic to be back in the car. I've really enjoyed every single lap, every single run. We've been making good progress throughout the day, step by step, as it is to be expected after such a long break. It was a decent day overall, although we had a small problem with my car towards the end. The grip level was pretty low today, but I'm sure the track will ramp up over the course of the weekend. We need to stay on top of that as that can change the set-up quite a bit on this track. The main challenge will be to get the balance right for both high-speed and low-speed corners and fine tune the car for that single lap on Saturday, while keeping our race pace in mind as well. It's only Friday, the lap times will come down tomorrow with the track improving, with additional performance items from all the teams and with the drivers pushing hard, so it will be interesting to find out where we stand.


Andrew Shovlin: It's great to be back at the track after such a long time. We have quite a few new developments on the car since it last ran in winter testing, so we've had a busy day checking that they were all working as expected. We've had a couple of little niggles that got in the way of running today for both drivers; Lewis had a telemetry outage at the start of the second session that held us up and Valtteri stopped early after a gearbox problem. We're still looking into Valtteri's problem, at the moment we don't know what has caused it. This circuit hasn't been kind to us in recent years, but the car seemed to be working reasonably well from the start this year. We've still got work to do on the balance but more relevant is that we're expecting a much hotter track tomorrow that will put the tyres into a different working window. Our pace seemed competitive today, but we don't really know where everyone is in terms of fuel or engine modes and we tend to see everything close up when the temperatures go up.

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - FerrariSebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) celebrated his 33rd birthday, spending his time at the wheel of the SF1000, 215 days on from the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix that brought the curtain down on the 2019 season. It was the third longest break in the 70 years of this sport, given that only between 1950 and 1951 and then between 1961 and 1962 have there been longer ones. This will be Vettel's 102nd race for Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). He was fourth fastest in today's free practice for the Austrian Grand Prix on the Spielberg track, three tenths quicker than team-mate Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc).



Between them they completed 157 laps of the track in the climbs and drops of the Styrian hills, equivalent to over two race distances.


The restart after the break caused by the Covid-19 pandemic was affected by driving rain which fell on deserted grandstands, with clouds hanging over the track, but it did not deter the Scuderia drivers who left the pits almost together a few seconds after 11 o'clock. The track dried almost immediately and therefore the rain had little effect on the programme. Seb and Charles ran just the Medium tyres, working on set up at first. On his first quick lap, the Monegasque did a 1:06.554, dropping that time twice, first to 1:06.120 and then to 1:05.924. The German began with a 1:06.343, quickly getting down to 1:06.124 and then1:06.077. Charles and Sebastian were tenth and twelfth respectively completing a total of 63 laps.


Vettel and Leclerc completed 94 laps in the 90 minutes of the afternoon, getting through the planned programme, with 48 for the German and 46 for the Monegasque. In the first hour, both drivers started on the Hard compound, before moving onto the softs in order to go for a fast time over a single lap. At this point, Seb stopped the clocks in 1:04.961, which ended up as the fourth best time of the day, while Charles did a 1:05.298, putting him ninth on the time sheet.
In the final 30 minutes, the team began working in race configuration to do some long runs. Sebastian began on the Hard tyre, before finally moving onto the softer one, while Charles did the opposite, beginning a race simulation on the Softs and ending on the Hards.


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I think we had a decent day. We didn't have any trouble with the cars. It was good for us all to be back at the track and it was good to see that the team got up to speed fairly quickly and had no problems running through all the procedures. In terms of speed and competitiveness, it was an interesting day. I think we've seen that we are not at the top, that we are not the favourites.


"And then there is a lot of stuff going on behind that, and it's very tight. So, we will see, I think tomorrow will be a big day. I don't think we will be fighting for pole, but we must try to be the best of those behind that battle.
"We didn't take much notice of the teams around us to be honest, as it's always difficult to predict what sort of fuel loads people are running. I think we will see tomorrow, because we haven't got a clear picture today.


"It's up to us to develop and work so that the car gets faster. We're lacking grip and downforce compared to others. So it's a mix of all these things."


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "It's good to be back in the car after a long pause but on the other hand it wasn't an easy day for us so it was difficult to enjoy it fully. All the cars are very close, which is exciting to see on the one hand, but on the other hand, we would like to be fighting a bit nearer the front. The balance of the car is not that bad, we need to catch up in terms of overall performance.


"The lack of pace is not down to any one thing in particular so we'll try different ways for tomorrow and see if we can gain some performance. Qualifying will be good for the show, as there are quite a lot of teams all close together. We'll be fighting very hard and it's crucial we make the right choice tonight to come back with a stronger car tomorrow."

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It felt good to be back in the car and after a few laps you are quite easily back into the rhythm. Overall it was a positive day, the car was handling well and I'm pleased with the number of laps we did which is really important after such a long break. The lap times don't really say anything because I broke my front wing on the push lap, so we had to fit a different wing. I think we were a little too aggressive for that and I had a spin and a little off, but nothing major. The kerbs are what they are here and it's the same for everyone, the front wing doesn't really like the yellow kerbs so we do have to be careful. We are I think confident and there are always things we can do better but overall it was a good day and I'm looking forward to tomorrow."




Alex Albon: "Today felt pretty good and it was nice to be back in the car. I'm happy and excited that we're back underway and I think everyone was on it straight away which I was quite surprised about! It's been a long time since we did this amount of running so there's a lot to look through now ahead of tomorrow. There are a couple of things we need to work on, and there's always a bit of time in your driving and set-up, so we'll see where we are tomorrow but we know what to do. You've got to build up to the limit here as the kerbs are dangerous and some of them can be front wing killers if you hit them too hard. But overall the car felt good, I feel good, and I'm looking forward to tomorrow."

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - McLaren

Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "It's a positive first Friday for the team, it felt great to be back in the MCL35. We had some challenges and need to keep an eye on those yellow kerbs. I ran over one on my flying lap which cost me time on the final sector. Another minor issue kept me in the garage towards the end of the session but until then the car was showing a decent pace. We are starting to see the pecking order a little better and we are up for a tight Saturday. Let's see what happens tomorrow!"


Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "It's so good to be back in the car, getting up to speed, getting used to driving a Formula 1 car again. The first few laps are a bit of a shock to the body, because there's nothing like driving an F1 car, but it's great to be back. We got through our run plan, we did a good number of laps and I'm pretty happy with the car. There's always things to improve on from my side and with the car but on the whole it's a good way to start, so I'm happy. It's just good to be back and getting in shape again, I'm looking forward to getting back out tomorrow and trying to improve."


Andrea Stella, Racing Director: "Starting the season after such a long delay required everyone to rapidly get up to speed. For the drivers there's a need to get used to the pace of a Formula 1 car, both physically and mentally. They were quite colourful in describing the sensations, but they did it very quickly. From an engineering and operational point of view we had to do the same.


"There's only seven corners at this circuit but there's always loads of things happening. It's a track with aggressive kerbs and bumps, which always have an attritional effect, a challenge we're dealing with at the moment. Performance-wise, I think the car confirmed the progress we saw in the winter - but we have to acknowledge that other teams have also made good progress. Obviously there are midfield teams who seem to have taken a significant step forward, which makes the competition even tighter. But, as ever, we focus on our own performance and I think we have good potential.

There's a few things we can optimise overnight and we can fight for Q3. We're looking forward to qualifying tomorrow and the race on Sunday."

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team returned to the racetrack today as preparations for the season-opening Austrian Grand Prix started in Spielberg.




Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) ended the day as the fifth quickest driver with Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) - making his official Grand Prix debut in Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) colours this weekend - eleventh on his return to racing after almost 600 days away from the grid.


The team entered the weekend with some aero upgrades on the Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) R.S.20. Daniel was the first of the two Renaults to leave the garage in FP1 with Esteban shortly following suit. The Frenchman's session ended 15 minutes early as a precaution after sustaining damage to parts of his bodywork.


In the afternoon session, both drivers continued to work through the usual low fuel simulation before focusing on long runs in preparation for Sunday's race.


Daniel's sole run on Softs proved good enough for fifth, with Esteban half a second behind in eleventh.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Firstly, it's really nice to get back into it. After Australia, I think we were all a bit nervous if we were going to be here, so it's great to be out there again. The car felt good straight away and we carried some good momentum through the day. Our long run pace gives us something to work on, while the low fuel pace looked decent, so I'm pretty happy with that. Taking the timing board out of it, the car feels like it's progressed, so it's positive feelings and I'm looking forward to qualifying."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It definitely felt good to be back and I'm very happy to have a decent day's running. There are little things to improve here and there but that's normal after a long time away from driving. It's getting there, the pace is promising and looking at the team today we are in a good place. Our short runs were fairly quick, and the pace is there. I just need to pull it together when it counts tomorrow."


Alan Permane, Sporting Director: "It was a very solid day from both our drivers and, of course, the team. We came here very well prepared after running a two-day test here a couple of weeks ago. We were straight into a rhythm this morning with the cars performing well and the drivers happy with the balance and grip. Our long run pace was also decent this afternoon and - with good information on all tyres - we can develop a decent race strategy. We now look forward to a competitive qualifying tomorrow."

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauriDaniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "FP1 was a tricky session for us today. We were not that satisfied with the window the car was in, but I felt happier in FP2 as we were able to improve the car and make a step forward. We still have some work to do overnight but I'm positive that we will find what we need to improve the car still further for tomorrow."




Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm very happy to be back in the car after such a long break. It was an exciting day and we managed to do quite a few laps. In terms of performance, we knew it was going to be quite difficult, because I think we are still discovering the car and trying to understand what exactly we need from it. Unfortunately, I couldn't do a clean lap on the Options due to traffic, but Dany was ok, so we'll have a lot of things to analyse after today and try to put everything together for tomorrow's Qualifying."


Guillaume Dezoteux (Head of Vehicle Performance): "Today we had a difficult first free practice, during which we had a few operational issues and we also struggled with finding a good car balance. The weather didn't help either, with a damp track at the start. After a number of set up adjustments in between the sessions, we significantly improved the car in the afternoon and the drivers were happier. But we are still lacking some front-end grip in the third sector, which is very demanding on the front tyres. We need to analyse all the data and understand where we are in terms of competitiveness. The midfield looks tight again, so we have to optimise every aspect of the car to be able to fight for the top places. Finally, it was fantastic to be back racing and I must say that the constraints added by all the health and safety measures have not been too distracting and we were able to operate almost normally."


Toyoharu Tanabe (Honda F1 Technical Director): "Finally, after such a long break, we are glad to see the cars running on track again for the Austrian Grand Prix weekend. There are many restrictions in the paddock and the circuit in terms of what we can do and where we can go. In the case of Honda, it is slightly inconvenient that our members from our two different teams cannot have any contact. But it's a minor issue and does not affect us getting on with our main job of ensuring our cars run well. It's strange having no fans and we miss them. Today, we had no PU issues with our four cars and now we will continue optimising our PU settings in preparation for qualifying and the race."

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - Racing Point Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was very exciting to be driving again and it was a solid day for the team. We got a taste for the car in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) during winter testing, but it's good to see where we are relative to everybody else. We looked competitive and after so many months out of the car it was nice to get back in the groove. It's definitely been one of the better Fridays I can remember for a long time - so that's a good sign. Today, it looked like we had the pace. So we'll see what tomorrow brings."




Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It's been an interesting day. Everything is really close out there, especially on such a short track. The car feels good and I'm happy. In the factory, the team has done a tremendous job and we have a car underneath us that is working well. There's still a lot of work to do - tonight and tomorrow morning - but we are in decent shape. The margins are extremely close, so it's going to be really important to put together some really tidy laps in qualifying tomorrow."

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - Alfa Romeo215 days since we last saw our team in action during a competitive race weekend session, Formula One is finally back. At 11:01:49am this morning, Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) drove his Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN C39 out of the garage and into the Spielberg pitlane, followed by Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) a few moments later, marking the end of this seven-months wait and kick-starting the 2020 season for the team.




All of a sudden, it felt like the break never happened. Muscle memory kicked in; the voices on the radio sounded familiar; we were back, we were racing.


Free Practice won't ever give us a clear indication on what awaits us in the first of these two Austrian races. For that, we will need to wait a little longer. For now, let's just enjoy this feeling. We are back, and we are back racing.


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "Getting back in the car didn't feel too strange, it was a fairly normal Friday. We were trying things in the car, figuring out what works well and what doesn't to develop the best setup for the rest of the weekend. In the end it wasn't the easiest day, I had a little off but it didn't cost me much time; and we have something to work with for tomorrow. It's way too early to say where we stand today, we will need to wait until the end of qualifying to have a clearer picture."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It was really nice to be back in the car after this long break. I spent a lot of time in the simulator, but nothing matches the feeling of being in the real car. The day was quite positive and we managed to do all the tests we wanted today; of course, we are still missing something compared to the top ten but we will work hard tonight to bridge that gap. As always, it will be a matter of putting everything together, especially in qualifying. We are here to give our best, to try to get a good result and score points."

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - HaasThe long-awaited opening round of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship began with practice Friday at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring in Spielberg, Austria as teams prepared for Sunday's Austrian Grand Prix.



Two 90-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - on the 4.318-kilometer (2.683-mile), 10-turn circuit brought the grid together for on-track action for the first time since the final day of pre-season testing in Spain on February 28.


Both Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers were fast out the gate at 11:00 local time to start the session, Magnussen running his installation lap on the Pirelli P Zero White hard tire with Grosjean shod on the Yellow medium compound. A brief two-lap run each on the Cinturato Green intermediate rubber followed - the track drying from earlier showers but some light rain falling sporadically early in the session.


A brake fluid leak thwarted Grosjean's hopes of a productive morning as the Frenchman's VF-20 remained in the garage for the majority of FP1 as his crew worked feverishly to rectify the issue. He failed to set a lap time but returned in the final minute for a solitary installation lap. Magnussen's running proved more fruitful with the Dane enjoying a baseline run on the hard tires before switching to softs to clock a best lap of 1:05.906 - good for ninth fastest on the timesheet with a total of 27 laps to his credit.


Grosjean was first out the pits for FP2 in the afternoon, banking a 14-lap run on hard tires to start his run program. Magnussen commenced the session with an 11-lap tally on the medium compound. Both drivers switched to the Pirelli P Zero Red softs for their qualifying simulations. Magnussen placed 15th overall having set a best time of 1:05.678. Grosjean's fastest lap of 1:05.908 netted him 16th. Both drivers bolstered their lap count with high-fuel, race-simulations to bring Friday's track action to a close.


Between the two sessions, Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team ran a total of 127 laps - 71 by Magnussen and 56 by Grosjean.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "It wasn't an ideal start to the day, but it happens sometimes. The guys did a great job to enable us to get an install in at the end of the session just to check that the brakes were back to normal again. We then had a lot of work going on in FP2. We tried to make up for some of the time lost. I'll tell you this though, coming out of the box and pressing the throttle, I did think to myself ‘wow this goes really fast'. It took me a little longer than I expected to get back to it and focusing on things like getting the braking point right and really just the overall sense of speed - Formula One is very special and unique in that sense. Things settled though and we did manage to run through the planned program. There's obviously a bit more lap time to gain, the midfield is certainly looking quite tight."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "It was fantastic to be back in the car again and we had a decent day. We're still learning about the car and discovering little things about it. The rear grip is very good in the new car, but consistency is the key. The second session, it wasn't as trouble-free in terms of some traffic and stuff, but overall though, I'd say it was still a good session - I'm still happy with the day. It's been an interesting start and I can't wait for more tomorrow."


Guenther Steiner: "It's good to be back, but it's not long though before you get back to where you left off trying to do the best job possible. You find yourself back to dealing with issues and dealing with all the things that happen. FP1 wasn't fantastic, Romain (Grosjean) didn't really get out as we had a problem with a brake line which was leaking. We had to change the suspension for that, so he lost quite a bit of his running time. It was important to be running today as he hasn't driven a Formula One car in four months. We got it fixed and he got back out this afternoon with some good running. Performance-wise, we're not happy where we are at the moment. We've got things we need to work on, we know that, and we've got opportunities to do that. Everybody in the team will be working hard tonight to make things better for tomorrow. The best part of today was that we got back to racing."

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - WilliamsDave Robson, Senior Race Engineer: It has been great to run the cars again and to finally begin the 2020 season, especially in the imposing surroundings of the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring. The ‘closed' nature of the event undoubtedly makes for a different working environment but, so far, our tentative steps back towards racing have gone very well. We are grateful to have the opportunity to start the season here in Austria and we look forward to hopefully welcoming back the crowds later in the year.




The overnight rain compromised the FP1 run plan a little but nonetheless we were able to continue the work that we began several months ago in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). Although the whole of Formula One has been in shutdown for much of the spring period, we were still able to refine some key elements of the FW43 ahead of this event.


With good weather throughout FP2 we were able to test some set-up options that we expect to use later in the weekend. Both cars ran their intended programmes and the data gathered looks positive. As usual, we will take the time this evening to go through the details before deciding on a final specification for qualifying.


Having spent so long away from the track, it is easy to forget how demanding it is to drive and operate these cars and both drivers and car crews did an excellent job today. Of course, it is also Nicholas's first full race weekend in Formula One and he did a great job throughout, building on his experience from Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and the simulator. George too was impressive today and he was able to apply his experience and professionalism to lead the rest of the team through our first day back at the track.


Tomorrow the pressure will ratchet up a notch or two, but we are ready to face that challenge and get the best out of the car whatever the conditions. Whilst we will be focussed primarily on this weekend, we will not lose sight of the fact that we have a rare opportunity to test the cars and drivers over two consecutive weekends.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67175/drivers/66/george-russell): It was fun to get back behind the wheel and my body took a bit of time to get used to the g-force again. It was a productive and encouraging day; our low fuel pace isn't as good as our high fuel pace, where we seem relatively competitive. By the end of the day, I was back in the groove and happy in the car. We are going in the right direction, and that was our main focus.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): Overall, it was a mixed day, but I felt comfortable getting up to speed in the car. FP1 was a pretty positive session and we got through a few test items even with limited running due to the rain. FP2 was a bit more of a difficult session as we decided to try some new things to learn and I made some mistakes, but that is what practice is for. I really enjoyed being back in the car. It was the first time I have driven an FP2 session, so I can now say that I am officially a Formula One driver.

Austrian GP: Practice team notes - PirelliLewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) went fastest in both free practice sessions today using the P Zero Red soft tyre: faster than the equivalent time last year in both sessions. His team mate Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) was second in both FP1 and FP2.


Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) decided not to use the soft tyres in FP1 and only ran them in FP2 for the first time, with Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) classified fourth overall in the afternoon.


The fastest non-Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) today was Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point), with Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) third overall in FP2, also on the soft tyre.
Pirelli's 18-inch P Zero tyres made a successful competition debut today in free practice and qualifying for Formula 2. Formula 1 will adopt the same rim size in 2022.


Mario Isola: "As expected, there was a relatively small gap in terms of performance between the three compounds at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring, with a short lap that's covered in just over a minute. Despite a very long time since the drivers were last on track, the fastest times in both free practice sessions today were slightly faster than their equivalents last year, confirming the development of the cars with exactly the same tyres as 2019. There was plenty of track evolution following some overnight rain, which led to the intermediate tyres being run briefly in FP1.


"With more teams challenging for the top 10, it's more likely that the soft will be needed to guarantee a chance of progressing to Q3, which is probably why we saw a lot of drivers concentrating on long runs with the soft tyre as well as the medium today. At such a finely-balanced circuit such as the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring, the smallest detail will count even more than usual."

Ruedas de prensa:

Austrian GP: Friday Press Conference Pt 1Today's press conference with Christian Horner, Toto Wolff and Zak Brown.



Q: (Raphaelle Peltier - AFP) This is for everyone. How are your teams adjusting to the new normal and new rules in the paddock?

Christian Horner: It's certainly very different. The PPE that's required is different to what we're used to. The paddock is very quiet and we're in our own team bubbles as well. So, it's a lot more focused just within your own team, but focus very quickly is placed on the cars and trying to improve them and make them go quicker. Once you get over the discomfort and inconvenience of the P{PE it's business as usual I would say on the everyday problems you have with racing cars.


Toto Wolff: I have been for quite some time in Austria and all this set up here seems very weird in a country where there are no cases anymore, or at least around here. I understand that in the UK it's very different. I hope that based on my experience in Austria that this is the start and it's good that we are racing again. Even though it's weird that we are sitting 10 metres apart wearing surgical masks on our noses but if that is the thing we need to do in order to get racing then that's OK.

Obviously the work in the garage is impacted but nevertheless it's about lap timer and all of us are in the same position so it's a little bit about improvising and getting the job done.


Zak Brown: It's definitely a weird situation. I don't think any of us have been here before. That being said Formula 1 teams are used to rules and regulations so I think that we can adapt very quickly to the new circumstances. I've got to say, the FIA, Formula 1 and the circuit and the government and everyone that has gone on to contribute to putting on the event has done a very good job, because it certainly feels like a very safe environment. Hopefully we can get back to normal racing soon, but for the time being this is certainly better than sitting at home.


Q: (Luke Smith - Autosport) Christian, we know that Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) planned to protest Mercedses' DAS system in Australia. Has anything changed in your thoughts about that between Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne) and now? Are you still planning a protest and for Toto are you completely confident in the legality of the system?

CH: First of all, it's a very clever system and so all credit to the ingenuity behind it. I think the fundamental question for us is does it comply with the regulations in what is a fundamentally grey area. So we do want clarity on it because it does have an impact regarding the rest of this year. It's something that's been outlawed for next year but the question is: is it right for next year. So they're the questions that we'll be asking of the FIA through the necessary channels.


Toto, your thoughts...

TW: Yes, I respect Christian's position. I mean a clarification is always good. We think we are on the right side. There was a lot of talking and exchange with the FIA, that is the reason why we have it on the car. So we will both bring our arguments forward and then, let's see.


Q: (Chris Medland - Racer) I've got a question to follow up to Christian. Just wondering if you have your own version of DAS ready to go if you get clarity on whether it's completely legal for this season.

CH: It's a very complicated system, so obviously a lot of work has gone into it. We've certainly looked at it and like any component, it has to earn its place on the car for the penalty that it carries, whether that be weight or packaging etc. It's certainly something that, subject to a clarification, would be under evaluation for the rest of this year.


Q: (Christian Hollman - DPA, via email) Toto, how far are you along in contract talks with Lewis and Valtteri? What is your timeframe for your decision for your driver pairing for next year? And on what will you base your decision?

TW: I think simply based on the fact that we haven't seen each other a lot, we have been keeping the discussion up, we are in a position of trust with both of the drivers. You could say that in Formula 1 it doesn't mean a lot - but it does in our team. I guess that we will do the next steps soon but I don't want to commit to any timing because I don't want to answer questions every single race weekend about why the contracts are not done. There is no urgency in the matter. All of us want to do it and when the time is right, we will announce it.


Q: (Julien Billiotte - AutoHebdo) Question to all three gentlemen. Charles seemed quite off the pace this morning and Mattia has already admitted that there will be a new aero package for the team in Hungary. Do you think they are really starting the season on the back foot or they are bluffing?

ZB: I think it's too early to really know. We've done a little bit of winter testing and one FP1 session, so I think it would be premature to draw any real conclusions as to their real pace.


TW: Yeah, I would pretty much... nothing to add to Hannibal Lecter's answer!


What was your assessment of Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s pace after winter testing?

TW: It's very dangerous to assess the pace in winter testing because it's Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and it's February and you could see in 2019 Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) was really leading the charge and then struggled in the first few races - so I don't want to find ourselves in a trap of thinking you're competitive. And the same applies to this morning's performance. I don't think Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) or Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) have even switched on the engine, in a corner they still look pretty strong. Bit of a different aero configuration also. We shouldn't be analysing any performance after FP1. I think it needs tomorrow to really make a solid first assessment.


Christian?

CH: I think Zak sums it up pretty well. We've only had - what? - six days of testing and one session here, so there's been a consistent theme through that, that their straight-line speed hasn't looked anywhere near what it did last but it's too early in the weekend. Let's review it after qualifying and the race and you know, probably three or four races in. That's only when you're going to get a true pattern of how things are genuinely looking.


Q: (Alan Baldwin - Reuters) Question for Toto. If I can go back to the DAS question. Is there any concern that after all the excitement of finally getting back on track and having a race and Formula 1 starting up, that come Sunday we could be bogged down in a protest and nobody really knowing who's actually won the race - if you win it.

TW: I think, against what you would expect, all teams are pretty much aware that we are in a sensitive situation with going racing. It's the first race and on one side, it's fair enough to seek clarification; on the other side we are aware that we don't want to end up with a big debate on Sunday night. I think Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull), I think Christian is going to take the right actions. You know, controversy and different judgement on engineering innovation has always been part of Formula 1. This is what's to be expected in a way. It's part of the racing.


Q: (Jonathan Noble - Motorsport.com, via email) Christian, you've talked about Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing being better prepared for this season than any since your last title success in 2013. Can you explain why you feel that way - and what factors are in place this year that weren't there before?

CH: I think that obviously since the hybrid formula was introduced in 2014, I think this has definitely been our best off-season - albeit a very different off-season. We're obviously into the second year of our partnership with Honda. It was a great start last year winning three races and I think that momentum that we've built, the convergence that looks like it's happening with the engines, it feels like we are coming into this year better prepared than any previously in the hybrid era - so that would take us all the way back to 2013 that we were going into a season on a decent footing. So that's a reason for optimism for us. It's going to be a different kind of year this year. We don't even know what the calendar is. We don't even know where we're going to be racing in the second half of this Championship, so you've got to just swing with the punches and go with it. But it feels like we're in a good starting place and excited to be here and going racing.


Toto, do you expect Toto to be closer this year than they were last year?

TW: Well Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) was close last year, they had a little bit of up and downs but in some of the races they were more competitive than us. Alex Albon is going to get more comfortable in his car and we rate him and Max, nothing we need to add to his potential. So I very much expect Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) to give us a run for our money. And vice versa. And this, I think, is what F1 needs.


Q: (Abhishek Takle - Mid Day) This is to everybody. The crisis shines a spotlight on the importance of teams being profitable operations. Do you think the returns on investment would be looked at differently going forward, not just in terms of the marketing returns but actual, real profit? Thank you.

ZB: I think the teams did an excellent job over the extended winter to address the fiscal nature of the sport. As I think everyone knows, there was too big of a spread between first and tenth, which then plays itself out, also on track. I think if you can get a sporting franchise that is profitable, then I think the value of that franchise goes up significantly and so you get asset appreciation. I think all of our shareholders love being in Formula 1. I don't think they're in it necessarily to turn a profit, but they're also not in it to lose substantial amounts of money, which has been the case for a lot of teams. And so I think we've landed in a place where there's a path to profitability. I think that it closes the gap between first and tenth. I think that'll put a better product on the track ultimately. I think the fans win and I think it was a good compromise because the teams that were spending north of the cap have had to make some real compromises and I think that's good because that's going to be difficult and, at the same time, I do think that we have more wealth in the sport from the teams and what some of the teams that I think were at risk of leaving were more about their frustration for being competitive than not being able to afford the sport. So I think we found a good balance and I think Formula One's going to really thrive in the future.


Q: Toto, your thoughts?

TW: Yuh. Our situation is a little bit different to McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren), albeit that the shareholders of McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) seek value on their investment but for us, Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), and also speaking also for our partners, the return on investment seems to be right and Formula One is probably one of the best marketing platforms in the world. We're able to generate return on investment of up to twenty times the investment of Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and its partners and our partners, so from a marketing standpoint it has always made sense and does make sense. But now there's an additional angle that is being added, but with the cost cap, as much as we would have liked it to stay on a higher level because our organisation runs smoothly and restructuring is always difficult, as Zak referred to, there will be difficulties for us in restructuring but at the same time it leads us to a situation where our P&L will completely change from a deficit - not a big deficit, but still a deficit - it will change to a profitable P&L which is very important for the long term sustainability of the sport. I think we've seen that there are team owners and shareholders in the sport that are in there for the love of the sport and for the marketing return but in order for us to really prosper you need to post a profit like any normal company out there and then more people will be interested in owning teams or with owning part of a share in the Formula 1 organisation itself because it is a solid business kit and we are - as much as it's difficult from the restructuring point of view - we are looking forward to become a profitable franchise.


Q: Thanks Toto, and Christian?

CH: Yeah, I mean Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s involvement in Formula 1... the majority reason for that is to promote its product because Formula One is a global platform that has viewing figures that are only exceeded by the Olympic Games and the football World Cup which only happens every four years, not every single year. So I think the work that's been done, the collective work, the compromises that were found were very positive to improve the model and the fiscal model of a Grand Prix team, so it just adds greater value for money - as Toto has highlighted - for the shareholders, for the partners, for the sponsors. It gives a financial ceiling for the amount of money that a team can spend, so it allows the teams that are further down the pecking order to converge for that, certainly fiscally and potentially on track as well so it creates, certainly, a more even playing field and I think that in terms of providing value and long term security to the sport, the teams, the entrants, I think it was the right thing and responsible thing to do and I think all teams... we often differ in opinions in many areas like DAS systems... it was for the benefit of the sport to converge and come to a common understanding and compromise was found where it was needed to be.


Q: (Lawrence Edmondson - ESPN) Going back to Australia, there were still lots of questions about the legality of Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s engine the previous year and also questions about the settlement which was reached with the FIA and Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). I know, Toto, Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) have kind of backed off from that but for the other two team principals, are you still pursuing that, are there still questions that you need to be answered?

CH: Look, it does sit uncomfortably that there is an agreement that has been entered into about the legality and conformity of a car. That immediately draws you to think what is in that agreement? What does it comprise of because obviously in our minds a car is either legal or illegal? Now obviously questions have been raised with the FIA; the FIA have said they would be happy to disclose that document but of course they need the clearance from the other signatories so obviously it does nothing but promote suspicion when there are private agreements about legality and conformity so the healthiest thing would be to get it on the table so everybody sees what it comprised of. The FIA have said they are willing to do that, it would be great if Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) were prepared do the same so it puts it all to bed.


ZB: Oh yeah, I agree with Christian. It would be good to understand exactly what happened, what they found, what the solution is. It was last year so hopefully we see on the data maybe what we saw last year so I think at some point you do close last year out as long as you feel it's been addressed, but in today's transparent world I think it would be good to understand what was the case, but it doesn't seem like that's going to come forward from them any time soon.


TW: I want to précis exactly what you said, Lawrence. We didn't back off. We decided in Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne) that for the start of the season this additional controversy plus Corona starting to get really bad in Italy, was not the opportune moment. I would very much agree with what Christian and Zak said: in this day and age, transparency is extremely important and good governance - it's extremely important. And it may well have been good governance but if you don't know, it's difficult to judge so in the position that we are in is that we are monitoring the situation. We are not happy about last year. It has stretched all of us to a point to be competitive against Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) where it was difficult to cope and therefore let's wait and see how the season starts and gets going and we will then reassess for ourselves and probably with the other guys who were upset.


Q: (Adam Cooper - Motorsport.com, via email): Toto, how much of a loss is Andy Cowell from the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) engine programme, and are you confident he's not going to a rival team or manufacturer?

TW: Well, it's always a loss when somebody's retired that is calling the day but I think we respect everybody's decision and there is something within our organisation that we very much live to is that if you start to see that you are becoming from great to good or energy levels start to dip low that you can take a decision, and Andy very much wants to take a break. He's involved in a Daimler project that is very exciting and then we'll take the decision what to do. But we've shown in the past that we have always been very good and always on the front foot by succession planning. In the past, great people have left the organisation: Ross Brawn, Paddy Lowe, Aldo Costa, Bob Bell, Mark Ellis and they've been replaced from within with very strong next generation engineers and the same is happening at HPP. We have a fantastic board of directors there, led by Hywel who I personally rate very much as an engineer and from his personality standpoint, so I think we're going to be OK. Whether Andy decided to join somebody else, that is very much his call. I think at the moment he is well established and recognised in the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) family and I hope that is going to continue.


Q: (Nate Saunders - ESPN) Christian you mentioned earlier about being prepared but I guess the only certainty we have is that it's going to be a much shorter calendar that we were anticipating. Given what you said about Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s readiness for the new year and feeling much better about a championship challenge, do you feel better about your chances of winning the championship or challenging Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) for the championship now we have much fewer races, than you did ahead of Australia when we were prepping for a 22 or 21 race season?

CH: I think beating Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) under any circumstance is going to be extremely difficult, particularly when you consider their previous six seasons, but what we're also looking at is pretty much an 18 month season in many respects. OK, we've got the 2020 World Championship, which we don't know, in the bizarre situation where we're sitting here whether it's going to be eight races or 18. And then of course we've got a car that largely carries over into next year which will basically be bodywork updates during the course of next year as well so it's important to get the basis of this car right because it doesn't just impact this year, it impacts next year as well. But hopefully we've got a good starting point. We got close to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) at the end of last year at a few circuits: Mexico, Brazil were a few to name but hopefully we can keep the pressure on and not give them an easy time this year and it's going to be a different kind of season and I think it's good for the health of the sport to have competition, to have rivalry as well I think is something the sport desperately needs and particularly as there's so much focus on this return to racing. It would be good to get off to a good start.

Austrian GP: Friday Press Conference Pt 2Today's press conference with Mattia Binotto, Cyril Abiteboul and Franz Tost.



Q: (Christian Menath - motorsport-magazin.com) Mattia, on 11 February at the car launch you said that Sebastian was your first option and in May you announced that you would part ways. You said it was a common decision and yesterday Sebastian said he didn't get an offer from Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). Could you please explain what changed from February when you said he was your first option to the decision you took not offering him a contract?

Mattia Binotto: Certainly. Let's take a step back as first, certainly we have always said during the wintertime privately to him and publicly that he would be our first choice, which I confirm. It's normal that during wintertime many drivers have asked us if there are any opportunities to drive for Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). So we have certainly been contacted, but that didn't change our position, so Seb was our first choice. What happened since then? I think the virus, the pandemic situation, which changed the entire world not only out motorsport, our F1. The budget cap has been changed quite a lot, a lot more strict. The regulations have been postponed from 2021 to 2022, which is somehow important for us. Cars which have been frozen, or almost frozen, for 2020 and 2021. So let's say the entire situation has changed and on top of that I think that even the season has not started so there has been no opportunity even for Seb being back on track to prove how much he was really motivated to drive for Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), which has been somehow unfortunate for him. So during the shutdown, as Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), we had to reconsider eventually our position. We took a decision. So certainly that was our decision, it's our responsibility and we communicated to him. I heard that he was surprised. Do I remember that he was surprised., I would say yes, certainly. I understand it. I think it's pretty, let me say, normal to be surprised and while he accepted our decision I think that even still today I think that he is not fully happy with it, which again I think is something normal and obvious.


Q: How would you sum up Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel)'s time at Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)?

MB: I think it has been a great period - five years so far, six with the current season. He is a great champion, but he's as well a great person. I think that everyone in Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), our fans, the people working internally loved the time with him. That's something on which we fully respect. I personally, myself, appreciate him a lot, as a professional and as a person and that is fully unchanged compared to our decision.


Q: (Dieter Rencken - Racing Lines/Racefans.net) Good day gentlemen, a question about fuels for the future. From 2030, Formula 1 intends having zero carbon etc and we have an engine change coming in 2025 or 2026, that's to be decided. How would you like to see Formula 1 go from the current fossil fuels to meet that target? At what stage should we switch to bio-synthetic fuels etc, possibly new technologies? How do you see the future on fuels?

Cyril Abiteboul: Thank you Dieter. It's a big question to ask. Let's take it step by step. What we know already is that there is a first step coming in 2022 with E10, so 10% bio-ethanol fuel. I think first it's important to highlight that we could have postponed, pushed back or even completely cancelled this first step in all the measures that we've been discussing, contemplating but eventually we decided to stick to it, because we all agree that it's a very important statement. It's good to make statements but it's also good to make tangible steps, so that first step was important to secure, even if delayed by a year. Then, looking further ahead, also what we have all agree is to contain the arms race on engine development such that we can leave a bit of space in terms of discussion, but also in terms of thinking and later in terms of development capacity for the 2026, if my memory is correct, 2025 or 2026, ne engine and that's a development that needs to kick of in 2023 and that will leave us one of two years probably to really think ahead what's good for Formula 1. As far as I am concerned, I would tend to believe that fuel needs to be part of that process, which may mean that we could have to delay that second step after the first step that will be for 2022 to the new engine that could be developed jointly with a completely different fuel, because it's important to keep in mind that you don't just throw a new fuel into an existing internal combustion engine. It's a complete redesign, a complete re-optimisation that you need to develop. And what will be the weight of electrification versus thermal engine is probably the first main question to ask and then indeed what kind of fuel you put into the internal combustion. So I accept, Dieter, that I'm not really responding, apart from that it needs to be part of a large process and a large-scale thinking process.


MB: Thank you Dieter for the question, I think it is an important one. As Cyril said, E10 in 2022, which is important, but then we need to look at 2026 for the next important step for manufacturers in that respect. We believe that full electric is not the only solution for the automotive for the future and I think that F1 has to be a platform for innovation in that respect or an alternative solution to the full electric. So, designing a regulation for 2026 where our power units need to become even more sustainable or fully sustainable compared to what we've got today will be key and to have full sustainable fuels will be important. Will those fuels be synthetic or bio or whatever, I think that is exactly the discussion we've got at the moment with the FIA, which is important, but I think our fuel supplier needs to be part of the discussion itself. So I think it's... at the moment it is the right time to analyse it, to discuss it and to eventually decide for the future, because sustainability will be key for the future and F1, as I said, has to remain an important innovation platform for the automotive itself.


Franz Tost: There will be different steps to find this sustainable fuel and I am convinced that the engine manufacturers, together with the fuel companies, will find a solution for this. I am quite positive that Formula 1, once more, could show to the people that research and development plays an important role and that they can come up with a proper technical solution and that we can use and continue the system of the current power unit, mainly to have two energy recovery systems. I think this would be quite a good solution against the electronic cars and I think that Formula 1 will do this important step and will stay, on the innovation side, at the peak of the motorsports.


Q: (Chris Medland - Racer) A question for everyone. I just want to get a general overview of the work you've had to do to get to this point? Obviously the situation has been different in the UK to France and to Italy and how have you been able to prepare your factories and go racing and be here and focus on the racing side?

FT: Yeah, as we all know, at the beginning of March it was quite critical in Italy. There were different districts, so-called red zones. Fortunately, Faenza was not included, but nevertheless Conte, the Italian President, decided that all the companies had to be closed and this depended also to Scuderia AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri). Fortunately then everything came together with the shutdown with all the Formula 1 teams and we meant we then had this period of around 63 days where we all had to stop working and I think that Formula 1 used this period quite well, with a lot of video conferences between FIA, FOM and the team principals to come up with the new sporting, technical and financial regulations. I think that we used this shutdown quite well to finalise parts of the regulations and that we could come up with a proper solution. The preparation went quite well. The mechanics came back and all the3 other people as well. Of course research and development suffered during these three months, there was nothing, the wind tunnel was as well closed. That means from this point of view from the development of the cars there's a delay but it costs less money so it's also an advantage. I am now looking forward that the season starts here in Austria, thanks to Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull), and that we will have hopefully a good second half of the season with as many races as possible.


MB:The situation certainly has been very difficult in Italy, especially, since after Australia we had to close our factory. Not only the racing team but the entire Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) factory has been closed. I think we, as Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), have worked very hard to put our people in the most safe situation, especially when they went back to work. Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) collaborated a lot with the local government, really to set the right protocols for going back to work. I think we did a fantastic and great job and we have set somehow the benchmark for the entire Italy by putting really rigid, strict, severe protocols, but safe for the health of our employees. Our employees are at the centre of our concerns. And that's not only for the racing team, that has been for the entire factory. So it has been for thousands of people and I am somehow even glad to say that the entire people have been back at work when it was the right time and in the right and safe manner.


CA: What can I add, as a lot has been said. Probably the same has been applied in our two factories, one in the UK and one in France, basically with the UK trailing other countries by a week, but no big difference. Seven weeks of shutdown and nine weeks of shutdown in the UK and then indeed re-starting the two factories with a number of measures. Some of them are actually very visual, pretty much the same: social distancing, wearing masks, with extra care for all the interactions you can have between people, not sharing the same tools and so on and so forth. And also setting some targets, so basically we are right now at 50% of head count in our factories at any given time - with some cohort system, which is pretty much the same as the notion of sub-groups we have on track here. And we are progressively aiming at bringing more people back progressively. Obviously more people in production and in the design office with more people in the design office being capable of working remotely thanks to all the new software we have available and that has been a massive shift of mindset, including from a management perspective.


Q: (Lawrence Barretto - Formula1.com and Philip Horton - Motorsport Week, via email) Does Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) need a big-name signing alongside Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) next season and are Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) and Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) of genuine interest to the team?

CA: No, what we need first is a driver. We need a driver for each car. We need a quick driver, we need a talented driver and we need a driver that can understand and buy into Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault)'s project. We are very clear about the nature of our team. We are a bit of a unique team in the Formula 1 landscape, but at the same time very loyal to Formula 1 but also a young team still in the making, with some struggles, in particular last year. So we need someone who is capable of understanding all of that and understand the value of all the work, ethic and effort we are putting into that. I am not saying that Daniel has not understood that. That's absolutely not what I mean. I am talking about the future. We are talking to a few names. Some big names, some lesser-known names. We are taking the time and again making sure that there is a good alignment between what we are and what any driver is looking to get in a team like ours.


Q: Can you put a time scale on when you will make a decision?

CA: No.


Q: (Alan Baldwin - Reuters) A question for Mattia. There's been a lot of talk about Mugello hosting a race. It's a Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) circuit so Formula 1 has to talk to you about it. Perhaps you could update us on where that stands? Potentially Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s 1000thF1 race at a home track.

MB: Yeah, I can confirm that we are discussing with F1. I can confirm that our hope is to try to bring F1 to Mugello. We believe that Mugello is a great circuit, not only the sustainable side but generally speaking for the drivers - it's very demanding. I think it's a great track. I think that bringing F1 even in Italy to Tuscany, it's a great region, with all the jewels we've got there, Florence etc. So I think it could be an exciting race there and as you said and being potentially our 1000thrace, doing it in Italy, at Mugello, our own race circuit, that would be great. It would be great even more if we may have some fans there, which at the moment we cannot eventually confirm. But I think generally speaking if this happens, we will try to organize a great show for the entire broadcasting and the entire fans.


Q: You tested there very recently with a two-year-old car. Can you give us any insights into the demands of the track for a modern grand prix?

MB: It's a track that I myself know pretty well because I've been there since 1995 when testing as an engineer - obviously not as a driver. But I've been very often there. It's a very interesting track, demanding, fast. Drivers normally enjoy driving there, and as you said, we've been there a few days ago with Seb and Charles and both of them really enjoyed the track. Fast corners, It is certainly a very interesting track.


Q: (Nate Saunders - ESPN) Cyril, signing Daniel was a pretty big coup for yourself and for Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault), but by the same token losing him to an engine customer, an engine customer that beat you with the same engine last year, is hardly a ringing endorsement of the project or of the management itself. How much pressure do you feel under this year in justifying your position with the team?

CA:You know when we are participating in Formula 1 as a team or when you are managing a team that has the loyalty that I was talking about before - 43 years in the sport, with a number of championships as a supplier or as a full team - there is pressure. There is pressure every single year. We've had a nice progression since 2016 that indeed marked a stop last year. But for me you know there were already some signs of weakness before last year. If you go back into what was 2018, yes we were P4 in the championship but it was clear that we were not capable of developing at the right pace. In order to catch up with a top team, it was already very clear that McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) was on a very nice trajectory. We had to do a number of changes that basically led us to change a big part of the technical leadership in Enstone. I think the engine has made good progress. It's well recognized and accepted. We now need to focus on the car and that's what we are doing now in the decision that we have taken in terms of financial trade-off for the future. And yeah, so I am feeling pressure but equally I am feeling confident, about this year and the ones to come after that.


Q: (Scott Mitchell - The Race) For Mattia and Cyril. Obviously because of the change of rules this year there have been lots of development freezes, including on the engine side. Do you have upgraded power units here compared to what you would have used in Australia?

MB:Let me start and the answer straight is no. We've got the same engines as we had at the time of Australia. As I said, we shut down the factory for a long time so there has been very little time somehow to develop. So we didn't bring anything different. Now the power unit is frozen for the season. I know that other manufacturers took the opportunity to continue developing and working. We were aware of that. They took eventually an advantage. It's part of the game. I think that's part of all the entire compromises that we have accepted during the shutdown period, looking ahead for the good of the sport.


CA:In the previous question I was referring to some trade-offs and also sacrifices we have made in order to manage a crisis that has been extremely severe. We are talking about a large reduction of the prize fund. We are also having discussions with sponsors who are very loyal but who are all facing challenges in their own business. That's why indeed we had to come up with some decisions and one of those decisions was that as far as we were concerned is that we are going to pause engine development, focusing on the next step that we will have the opportunity to discuss later. But indeed that means don't expect any engine upgrade from us this year.


Q: (Jon Noble - Motorsport.com, via email) Mattia, can you give us some details on what you learned about the car and the flaws that were discovered from testing in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)?

MB: I think we mentioned that in different interviews. The car in winter testing was not performing as expected. The car on track was not performing as let me say the design we did at home so there was a mis-correlation from design to track. Obviously we had to understand at first. We started really trying to understand it as soon as we have been back at the factory, so during the shutdown period that was not possible. I think we realized that from the aero point of view mainly there were some mis-correlations. Eventually I think we pushed our project on trying to seek a lot of downforce, that's looking as well what was our situation last year in terms of weaknesses. I think whatever we developed was too fragile in terms of aero robustness when being back on track and what we are trying to do now is to have a step back and try to understand and reassess the problem and then moving forwards later on. Our hope is to bring some developments in Hungary, nothing before, mainly because I said that whatever developments we were doing we needed at that time, at that stage, to step back. Hopefully by Hungary we will not address all our issues but we will have a decent step forward in our performance and I think by then we can really understand where we are compared to our competitors.


Q: (Laurence Edmonson - ESPN) We've just heard from Christian Horner, Toto Wolff and Zak Brown about they still have questions over the FIA's investigation into Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s power unit over the winter and the resulting settlement with the FIA. The FIA has indicated it would be willing to release some more details but they are unable to without agreement from Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). Can you give us the reasons why you are not willing to release some of those details and do you think this can be put to bed quite easily if you did so?

MB: The answer is quite straightforward. First, there was no clear breach of the regulations. Otherwise we would have been disqualified. The reason we don't want to open is simply because whatever we would need to explain is IP, intellectual property to our project, to our power unit and no one in the paddock would be happy to release information on their design and their projects. It's IP, it's confidentiality, it's intellectual property protection and that's the reason why we are not keen to do it.


Q: (Luke Smith - Autosport) For Cyril. I know there were some concerns about Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point)'s car, the so-called 'Pink Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)' through pre-season testing. Is there consideration from Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) to lodge a protest this weekend?

CA: It's an old debate, the debate about customer cars. Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) has been able to push that to an extreme this year. I think it will be interesting to see the lap time, because there has been lots of speculation based on winter testing. And as we all know that is very difficult to say anything from winter tests. First, this week is back to racing. We will finally have an idea of the respective competitiveness and if Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) complies with the regulations then they have nothing to worry about obviously. But again, back to racing is the priority number one for this weekend.


Q: (Chris Medland - Racer) Mattia, a question about the new aerodynamic direction that you are taking. The drivers were asked about it yesterday and they said it will probably put the team on the back foot by quite a lot. Do you feel it rules you out of the championship fight this year and was it still a necessary step to take because we are going to freeze so many aspects of these cars for next season as well?

MB: It's never easy to start a season not being competitive when your objective is to win and to win the championship. It is certainly a difficult start to the season for us. Will that compromise the entire season? I think what's important for us on the first races is trying to maximise the points we may bring back. You never know what may be the situation. Others may have difficulties or problems as well. I think it's only a matter of racing and we are here to race and to do our best. We are focused on this weekend and trying to optimise our car package and optimise the result by the end of the race itself. And then the freezing situation? Certainly it was not obvious for us to accept such a situation when discussing during the shutdown. I think that Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) has been very responsible in accepting the situation. Unanimity would have been required, because I think it's important for the sport itself. It's important due to the situation, even of the small teams, what would represent continued development in such a situation. So I believe that Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) has been really very responsible to the sport. The hope is that not only Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) will somehow sometimes accept compromises. I loudly said that I have been disappointed by the sprint race format that a single team rejected because I think that if everybody will simply look at his own advantage then I think a lot of decisions that were taken during the shutdown would not have been taken.

Por eso cuando se presenta una reclamación, protesta o se pide una clarificación, disponemos de una oportunidad para acceder a los "fundamentos" en los que se basan decisiones que vemos en el día a día de la F1. Por eso creo, que esta decisión de los Comisarios sobre la protesta del equipo Red Bull Racing merece más que un simple enlace.
--------

Protest filed by Aston Martin Red Bull Racing against Car number 77, driven by Valtteri Bottas [para el 44 LH, sería lo mismo] of the Mercedes‐AMG Petronas F1 Team Stewards Decision:

The Protest is rejected as it is not founded.

Procedure:

1. On July 3, 2020, after Free Practice 2 held during the Grand Prix of Austria, counting towards the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing (“Red Bull”) filed a protest against Car 77 (the “car”), owned by Mercedes‐AMG Petronas F1 Team (“Mercedes”).

Red Bull claimed in its protest that the car would be not in compliance with Art 3.8 and 10.2.3 of the 2020 Formula One Technical Regulations. The parties were summoned and heard. The following persons were present during the hearing (in person or via video conference):

On behalf of Red Bull :

‐ Paul Monaghan
‐ Adrian Newey
‐ Jonathan Wheatley

On behalf of Mercedes :

‐ James Allison
‐ Ron Meadows
‐ John Owen
‐ Andrew Shovlin

On behalf of the FIA Technical Department :

‐ Nikolas Tombazis

2. The FIA Technical Department carried out an analysis of the Mercedes system and the Stewards inspected the relevant car parts.

3. At the hearing there were no objections against the composition of the Stewards panel or against the procedure of using a video conference call in addition to a face to face hearing. The parties set out oral arguments and addressed the questions asked by the Stewards. The FIA expert was interviewed and explained his written comments.

4. At the hearing the parties referred to the documents submitted. None of the parties submitted further evidence or initiated the hearing of additional persons or conducting further investigations.

The claims of Red Bull:

« The Mercedes DAS design breaches Articles 3.8 and 10.2.3, Aerodynamic Influence and Suspension Geometry respectively, of the 2020 Technical Regulations via the following rationale.

Article 3.8 contains the paragraph:

With the exception of the parts necessary for the adjustment described in Article 3.6.8, any car system, device or procedure which uses driver movement as a means of altering the aerodynamic characteristics of the car is prohibited.

Article 10.2.3 states

No adjustment may be made to any suspension system while the car is in motion.

DAS appears to work by changing the toe angle of the front wheels. This is separate in effect to the traditional steering system as it does not involve movement of the steering rack pinion gear.

A conventional steering system can navigate a lap of any circuit and by necessity is granted exemption to Articles 3.8 and 10.2.3. In isolation DAS is incapable of lap navigation and is therefore dependent upon the conventional steering system – i.e. DAS, in changing the toe angle of the wheels is a separate and redundant system.

Alteration of the static toe angle on the front axle will also change the aerodynamic characteristics of an F1 car, typically performed in set‐up and prohibited in Parc Ferme. DAS operation, which is a front axle toe angle modifier, will have a measurable aerodynamic effect on the car, whether changing the trajectory or not.

A steering system should alter a car’s trajectory when used. Observation of DAS usage in FP2 indicated deployment in a straight line with no change of trajectory, thus rendering DAS not a steering system.

By observation of the video footage from FP2, use of DAS was not every lap and isolated to in/out or re‐charge laps thus it was not a system necessary for use in timed laps, rendering the primary purpose to be something other than steering.

Subsequent use in a corner cannot recover the breach as the competitor must demonstrate compliance with the regulations at all times during an event, Article 2.7 of the Technical Regulations.

The Technical Regulations do allow multiple steering systems. RBR contend a steering system should have the primary purpose of being able to steer the car. A secondary system that is, on its own, incapable of steering the car is an unnecessary system.

A key discussion point must be why have Mercedes added the DAS system? As mentioned above, judging by practice today, it appears to be used on out and slow laps as a means of adjusting tyre temperature, i.e. its primary purpose is not as a steering system but rather a tyre temperature management system.

In conclusion, DAS is an unnecessary, separate system requiring a separate driver input and using components which are separate in their effect to the main steering system breaching Articles 3.8 and 10.2.3 »

Mercedes’s arguments in defence:

« DAS is not a suspension system because:

1. It is mounted on the fully sprung side of the car and plays no role in suspending the car, or insulating the car from the undulations on the road surface.

2. It is mounted fully on the power assisted steering rack.

3. All it is capable of doing –just like a traditional steering system –is to alter the alignment of the front wheels about the kingpin axis by changing the position of the outboard ends of the steering rack.

4. It cannot change the length of any of the suspension members

DAS is a steering system because:

1. Actuating conventional steering moves the wheels in the same direction.

2. Actuating DAS moves the wheels in the opposite direction – it is like changing the static toe angle of the steering system.

3. Conventional steering often also changes the toe – but it does so as a function of steering angle 4. Changing the toe angle of the wheels changes the forces on the front tyres.

5. Any driver knows that changing the toe makes the car change its steer response (from lazy to nervous) – changing this value while the car is manoeuvring (incorners or on the straights) will cause the car to steer.

6. This is because under all track conditions (except the purely hypothetical situation of zero wind and geometrically perfect track), the difference in load on the tyres from left to right will cause the car to steer when the toe angle is changed.

7. DAS is a steering system that allows the driver to optimize the toe, and therefore the steer response of the car during a run instead of being confined to changing only from run to run.

DAS is a legal steering system because:

1. It fully respects Article 1.2 and 10.4.1 in that it only allows for the alignment of two wheels.

2. It is not electronically controlled.

3. It passes all the geometrical and safety requirements of 10.4

4. It is a steering system, and so benefits from the same implicit exemptions from article 3.8 as every conventional steering system on the grid.

5. We have fully complied with our obligations under Art 2.5 to describe the novel system. »

Conclusions of the Stewards :

Having considered the various statements made by the parties and listened to the expert witness statements made at the hearing, the Stewards determine the following:

The DAS system allows the driver to adjust the toe angle of the front wheels by a longitudinal motion of the steering wheel along the steering column. So the steering wheel has two degrees of freedom:

‐ Rotational degree of freedom around the steering column axis: this provides the conventional
steering response of the car.

‐ Longitudinal degree of freedom along the steering column axis: this steers the wheels independently from each other, thus adjusting the toe.

The DAS is hydraulically‐assisted like any conventional Formula 1 steering system, but remains under the full control of the driver at all times. Physically, the DAS is integrated with the conventional steering system of the car.

The Stewards believe DAS is part of the Steering system, albeit not a conventional one. The key challenges to the legality of DAS rely on it not being part of the Steering system. If this were indeed the case, then it would be breaching the following Technical & Sporting Regulations:

1. Article 3.8 (Aerodynamic Influence): the position of the front wheels affects the aerodynamic performance of the car, and is controlled by the driver. An exception is de facto made for steering, otherwise all cars would be illegal. If DAS fell outside this exception, it would be illegal.

2. Article 10.1.2, which states that the front suspension system must be so arranged that its response results only from changes in load applied to the front wheels. Again there is an implicit exception for steering. So if DAS was not part of the steering system, it would fall foul of this regulation too.

3. Article 10.2.1, which states that with the steering wheel fixed, the position of each wheel must be only influenced by (a) its vertical position, and (b) minor compliances. Clearly if the DAS was not considered to be part of the steering, and to hence provide an independent adjustment of the wheel position, it would be illegal. Steering is a de facto exception, and if DAS was not considered to be part of it then it would fall foul of those Articles.

4. Articles 10.2.2 and 10.2.3, related to adjustments of the suspension whilst the car is in motion or powered suspension systems.

5. Article 34.6 of the Sporting Regulations: this forbids an adjustment of suspension in parc fermé. It is, for example, not permitted to adjust the toe angle by mechanically adjusting the length of the steering arms during parc fermé. Clearly (again) steering is a de facto exception, and if DAS was not considered to be part of it then it would fall foul of this Article.

As a general conclusion, it is very simple to conclude DAS would be illegal IF it were not part of the steering system. So the main challenge and debate has to be on whether it can be considered to be part of the steering system.

The Stewards decide that DAS is a part of the Steering system.

1. Article 1.2 states that “at least two (wheels) are used for steering” and Article 10.4.1 states that “the re‐alignment of more than two wheels is not permitted”. These two articles hence limit the number of steered wheels to 2, but crucially no reference is made on that realignment being of a single degree of freedom (i.e. the LH wheel having a single function of position in relation to the RH wheel).

2. There is no direct definition of steering, but one can plausibly suggest that:

a. Steering changes the direction of the car.

b. During steering the steered wheels rotate about a vertical or near‐vertical axis to change their direction, and hence steer the car.

3. Changes in toe affect the direction of the car in two ways:

a. If toe changes in a corner, the effect will be asymmetric and hence the trajectory of the car will change.

b. If the driver applies a steering wheel (rotational) input, the response of the car will depend on the toe angle of the wheels, hence the fore‐aft position of the DAS will have a direct steering effect.

4. Mechanically, the DAS re‐aligns the two front wheels via the same central mechanism that conventional steering does (i.e. the PAS). The fact it acts on the track rod is, we believe, entirely equivalent to the conventional steering.

5. A hydraulically‐powered DAS which remains under the full control of the driver is also entirely consistent with the hydraulically‐powered conventional steering system.

Because of the above arguments, the Stewards believe that DAS can be legitimately considered to be part of the car’s steering system, and hence that it should be subjected to the same implicit or explicit regulations as the conventional steering system.

The Stewards decide that DAS is not in breach of the suspension‐related regulations.

1. Fundamentally suspension has the purpose to insulate the sprung mass of the car from the undulations in the track surface. The alignment of each front wheel (i.e. its steering angle) has an effect on the suspension, but this is incidental. Article 10.2.1 specifically deals with this matter, stating that “With the steering wheel fixed, the position of each wheel centre…etc.”. This Article essentially separates the function of the suspension and that of the steering. It is also clear that the steering wheel position is in this case a two‐degree‐of‐freedom system.

2. Consequentially, the legality of the DAS system is identical to the conventional steering system in terms of the legality under Articles 10.1.2, 10.2.2 and 10.2.3.

3. The legality of the DAS system under other parts of the regulations (Article 3.8 – aerodynamic effect, ride height with steer (TD/003‐18), etc.) is equivalent to that of the conventional steering system as the DAS, for the reasons stated, is considered to be part of the car’s steering system.

For the above reasons the Stewards conclude that the DAS system is not part of the suspension, nor can it be considered to illegitimately adjust the suspension.

Therefore the Stewards consider DAS to be a legitimate part of the steering system and hence to satisfy the relevant regulations regarding suspension or aerodynamic influence.

In the opinion of the Stewards, the DAS system is physically and functionally a part of the steering system.

As such, it benefits of the implicit exceptions to certain suspension regulations applicable to steering.

Competitors are reminded that they have the right to appeal certain decisions of the Stewards, in accordance with Article 15 of the FIA International Sporting Code and Article 10.1.1 of the FIA Judicial and Disciplinary Rules, within the applicable time limits.

Sobre la polémica del DAS y la reclamación del Red Bull.


Albert Fabrega @AlbertFabrega (https://twitter.com/AlbertFabrega) · 2h (https://twitter.com/AlbertFabrega/status/1279315071714328576)


(1) Red Bull alega que el DAS tiene una influencia sobre la aerodinámica medible y que se utiliza para la gestión de la temperatura de los neumáticos. Aducen no se activa en todas las vueltas y que por eso no es un sistema de dirección, sinó que es independiente.


(2) Mercedes se defiende alegando que es parte del sistema de dirección. Y que no actúa sobre longitud de los elementos de suspensión. Igual que la dirección el DAS también cambia convergencia, pero en dirección opuesta. No es de gestión electrónica y es seguro.


(3) Comisarios deportivos opinan que el DAS es parte del sistema de dirección, pese a no ser un sistema convencional. Por tanto aunque pueda afectarlos, no es un elemento de la suspensión. Que afecta la aerodinámica como cualquier otro sistema de dirección. Conclusión: Es legal


(4)Me parecen sensatos los argumentos de las 3 partes. Y seguramente hay parte de razón en todos. El sistema es legal, sin duda. Pero alguna de sus funciones podrían contravenir alguna cláusula de manera indirecta.Mercedes ha aprovechado una zona gris. En 2021 ya estará prohibido

Max VERSTAPPEN ha terminado tercero y Checo PÉREZ sigue «sorprendiendo» y termina cuarto, aunque a casi medio segundo de los Mercedes.

El primero de los Ferrari ha sido LECLERC, que ha terminado a más de medio segundo en quinta posición.

Los Renault de OCON y RICCIARDO se han colado entre los McLaren de NORRIS y Carlos SAINZ, que ha terminado 13º.

Por la parte de abajo seguimos como en la pasada temporada. Con los Williams, los Haas y los Alfa Romeo cerrando la clasificación, aunque los Williams han pillado al «grupo de cola», al menos RUSSELL, habrá que esperar a LATIFI.

Hamilton lídera 3ºTreino Livre e Mercedes é o favorita a pole positionHamilton fecha terceiro treino na frente e Mercedes se mostra favorita a pole position do GP da Áustria. O único que parece ter condições de ameaçar a possível dobradinha da equipe Alemã é Max Verstappen que ficou com o 3º, quase 3 décimos do campeão do mundo do ano passado. A Red Bull parece ser a segunda força do grid, principalmente pelo desempenho do piloto Holandês.
A Ferrari vai ter dificuldades, principalmente com Sergio Perez, que ficou em 4ºlugar mostrando que a Racing Point vai dar muito trabalho nesse ano. O que demonstra um acerto da equipe de Lawrence Stroll em copiar o projeto da Mercedes e todos os componentes que é permitido pelo regulamento. Charles Leclerc em 5º e Sebastian Vettel em 7º terão dificuldades não só para esse final de semana como para a prova do final de semana seguinte.
Mclaren e Renault mostraram condições de estarem brigando pelos 10 primeiros colocados, Alpha Tauri também parece ter essas condições. As piores equipes parecem ser mesmo a Haas, a Alfa Romeo e a Williams, Tanto é que os 6 últimos lugares ficaram com os pilotos dessas 3 equipes. A equipe de Frank Williams pode ter problemas com Nicholas Latifi. O Canadense que esta fazendo a estreia nesse final de semana acabou rodando na metade da classificação e bateu no muro da curva 1. O Carro não ficou tão destruído, mas pode deixá-lo de fora da classificação.

Carlos Sainz pasa el corte al finalizar sexto.

En las últimas posiciones encontramos a los Haas, Williams y los Alfa Romeo. La buena noticia para Williams es que están en los mismos tiempos de los otros equipos, por lo que tienen posibilidad de pasar el corte más de una vez.

FORMULA 1 ROLEX GROSSER PREIS VON ÖSTERREICH 2020 - Red Bull Ring - Spielberg
Resultados Sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
Sábado, 4 de julio de 2020


Sorpresa al ver cómo Valtteri BOTTAS ha conseguido «robarle» la pole a HAMILTON, que ha quedado a tan solo 12 milésimas.

El dominio de Mercedes es más que evidente viendo como en este circuirto tan corto le han sacado medio segundo al tercer clasificado, que ha sido VERSTAPPEN.

Lando NORRIS ha marcado un gran tiempo, colocándose 4º por delante de ALBON y Checo PÉREZ, que han marcado el mismo tiempo.

Desastre de Ferrari, que solo ha podido meter a uno de sus coches en Q3, terminando LECLERC 7º y VETTEL 11º. Y lo peor es que han marcado un tiempo un segundo peor que el del año pasado. Para hacérselo mirar.

Carlos SAINZ ha quedado bastante lejos de su compañero, 8º y a más de 4 décimas de Lando.

La mejoría de Racing Point se ve por el 9º puesto de STROLL.

En 10ª posición ha terminado RICCIARDO, que no estaba nada contento ya que en su último intento tuvo que levantar el pie por una salida de pista de Bottas, que iba justo delante de él.

Bottas supera Hamilton e marca a primeira pole do ano em SpielbergValtteri Bottas conseguiu desbancar o favoritismo de Lewis Hamilton e acabou conquistando a 12ªpole position da carreira e a primeira pole position da temporada. Num treino que ficou comprovada que vai ser mais uma temporada de domínio dos atuais Hexacampeões mundiais, tamanha é a competência e a excelência da equipe Mercedes. Com muita facilidade os dois pilotos vão estar na primeira fila para a prova de abertura do campeonato amanhã.
Os pilotos da Alfa Romeo e da Williams foram os primeiros a entrarem na pista, as duas piores equipes do grid tinham poucas esperanças de passarem para o Q2. Aos poucos, os pilotos das equipes grande começaram a entrar na pista e começaram a formatarem suas classificações. Verstappen marcou um belíssimo tempo com 1:04.326. segundos antes, Norris tinha ido para a liderança.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sabado_2020-4.jpg

A 8 minutos e meio do final, Bottas foi para a sua volta rápida que foi boa e já dava segurança para o finlandês passar para o Q2. O mesmo não aconteceu com Lewis Hamilton, que fez uma 1ªvolta com muitos erros, chegando a ficar na 14ªposição, Mas ainda tinha tempo e Lewis fez uma segunda volta que o levou a subir para a 2ªposição. Naquela altura do campeonato, Raikkonen, Magnussen, Russell, Grosjean e Latifi estavam eliminados e Giovinazzi estava garantindo o último lugar entre os 15 classificados para o Q2.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sabado_2020-16-1024x683.jpg
A poucos minutos do final, Russell em sua segunda temporada com a Williams marcou o 15ºlugar e deu esperanças de classificação para o Q2. Porém, o britânico foi superado por Grosjean e Magnussen e caiu para o 17ºlugar. O piloto Francês acabou se segurando no 15ºlugar. Magnussen, Russell, Giovinazzi (Que acabou dando uma escapada para a caixa de brita na última tentativa), Raikkonen e o estreante Latifi foram eliminados.

No Q2, os pilotos demoraram 3 minutos para saírem para a pista. Foi nessa etapa que o drama da equipe Ferrari. Lá na frente, Hamilton e Bottas disputavam a 1ªposição, com pequena vantagem para o inglês em cima do Finlandês por 205 milésimos. Max Verstappen foi para uma tática diferente de fazer a melhor volta com o pneu médio e dessa forma obter uma vantagem dos demais para a prova de amanhã, mas precisava se posicionar entre os 10 primeiros. A primeira volta o Holandês ficou com o 8ºtempo, na tentativa seguinte, cravou 1 minuto e 4 segundos exatos e ficou com o 6ºtempo.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sabado_2020-8-1024x576.jpg
Ao final da primeira parte do Q2, Leclerc vinha em 7ºlugar a 7 décimos de Hamilton, Para Vettel era muito pior, Ele vinha a 1 segundo da liderança, no limite da classificação, em 10ºlugar. Estavam classificando para o Q3 Hamilton, Bottas, Norris, Stroll, Perez, Verstappen, Ricciardo, Leclerc, Sainz e Vettel. Albon em sua volta rápida foi mal e marcou apenas o 13ºtempo, atrás inclusive de Gasly e Kvyat da Alpha Tauri.
A 2 minutos do final, todo mundo estava na pista para buscar lugar no Q3, Até mesmo os pilotos da Mercedes que já tinha tempo suficiente para ir a parte final do treino. Mesmo assim, Bottas marcou 1:03.015 e Hamilton 1:03.096 confirmando as duas primeiras posições, Com Albon no final saindo do 13ºlugar para o 3ºlugar, numa excelente volta do piloto Tailandês.

Com a volta do piloto da Red Bull, Vettel acabou ficando com o 11ºTempo e foi eliminado da classificação. Leclerc ficou em 10ºlugar e foi no limite para levar a solitária Ferrari para o Q3. Com o treino que a equipe Italiana fez, dá para falar que não vem coisa boa por ai para a equipe de Maranello. Gasly, Kvyat, Ocon e Grosjean foram os outros eliminados.

No Q3, os pilotos esperaram os primeiros 2,3 minutos para entrarem na pista, tirando Stroll e Ricciardo, todos foram para a pista a 9 minutos do final com os pneus macios. Mas todo mundo sabia que a Mercedes iria monopolizar a disputa da pole entre os seus dois pilotos.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sabado_2020-5.jpg
Foi exatamente o que aconteceu, O diferente dessa história foi que Bottas marcou a melhor segunda parcial e acabou fazendo 1:02.939. Esse é o novo recorde do circuito de Spielberg. Hamilton não chegou além do 1:03.061 na sua primeira tentativa ficando com o 2ºtempo. Para desespero dos adversários, Os dois abriram uma vantagem enorme para Max Verstappen que marcou o 3ºtempo, 6 décimos atrás de Bottas. Albon, Sainz, Perez e Leclerc eram a ordem dos 7 pilotos que fizeram a volta. Norris certamente por algum erro abortou a volta.

A 4 minutos o final, Stroll foi para a pista realizar sua volta rápida, que acabou sendo boa, levando o canadense ao 6ºlugar. Ao mesmo tempo, a 2 minutos do final, todo mundo vai para a pista para a última tentativa. Bottas e Hamilton vão com tudo para a última tentativa de melhorar os seus tempos.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sexta_2020-1.jpg
Bottas acabou indo para a caixa de brita e para a grama. Parecia que a pole iria escapar das suas mãos para ir até as mãos de Lewis Hamilton, mas o tempo de 1:02.951 não foi o suficiente para o campeão do mundo de 2019. O Finlandês Valtteri Bottas acabou levando a pole mesmo com o erro no final. Tem tudo para os dois pilotos da Mercedes disputarem a vitória amanhã.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sabado_2020-9-1024x576.jpg
Max Verstappen vai largar em 3ºlugar, mas ficou longe demais de Bottas e Hamilton e uma possível terceira vitória fica bem difícil. O pódio amanhã pode ser o máximo que o 1ºpiloto da Red Bull pode pretender. Lando Norris leva a Mclaren a largar na segunda fila, em 4ºlugar. A equipe de Woking fez um grande trabalho. Assim como a Racing Point, que esta muito bem com Sergio Perez em 6ºlugar e Lance Stroll em 9ºlugar.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_sabado_2020-12.jpg
Quem abre a terceira fila é o Tailandês Alexander Albon com seu carro da Red Bull, Com Sergio Perez ao seu lado. Charles Leclerc fez tudo que estava ao seu alcance, mas o 7ºlugar mostra a situação complicada que esta a equipe que deveria esta lutando para superar a Mercedes, mas que agora esta perdendo da Mclaren e Racing Point. Carlos Sainz jr. larga em 8º com a outra Mclaren. Lance Stroll da Racing Point e Daniel Ricciardo com a Renault completaram os 10 primeiros colocados.

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - MercedesValtteri claimed his 12th pole position in Formula One - his first of the 2020 season and third in Austria. Lewis qualified P2, just 12 milliseconds shy of his teammate's fastest qualifying time. Valtteri's pole position time of 1:02.951 set a new Formula One lap record in Spielberg.



Today's result marks the 275th front row for Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-Benz power. On this day in 1954, Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) celebrated its F1 debut at the French Grand Prix, held in Reims on 4 July 1954.

Both drivers will start the 2020 Austrian Grand Prix on the Soft tyres.

Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): This feels really good. I missed this feeling - I was shaking after qualifying. It's something really special to be able to push the car to its limits. We've been preparing for this for such a long time now and you never now where you really stand. But our team did such an amazing job, it's very impressive to see. It's still very early days, this was only the very first qualifying session of the season, but I'm so impressed by what our team has been able to achieve. A big thank you to everyone in the team, both here at the track and back home at the factories - this is a truly amazing car to drive. I'm very happy with the result today, but it's tomorrow that counts, so we need to keep our heads down and keep working hard.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Great job by Valtteri today and a great start to the season overall for the team. On my last lap in Q3, there was a big puff of dust when I came out in Turn 4 and at first, I didn't know where the car was that had gotten off the track. But then I managed to see that Valtteri was just about to come back on the track and so fortunately it didn't really affect my lap; in the end, he kept his position and so did I. This team shows year on year of what it is capable of; we continue to set new standards. I think it's because we're open-minded, we're current with the times. We're always learning from each other and we're always pushing the boundaries together. We're united as a team, there aren't really any politics within this group, and we push together. I think that's why we've come back strong again this year. Now we need to show that strength again tomorrow in the race.


Toto Wolff: I'm extremely happy with this front-row lockout for the first race of the season. The team and the car - both Power Unit and chassis - worked really well today. Now it's about bringing that result home tomorrow which will be very challenging. It may not look that difficult based on today's single lap results, but Verstappen's offset tyre strategy was clever as he will be able to go much longer on the Medium tyres in the race. We considered the offset strategy as well; but there's a risk to lose time at the start. We think a one-stop strategy can work here nonetheless, so then the harder tyre isn't necessarily an advantage. Given that Verstappen was lacking a little bit of single lap pace, going out in Q2 on the Mediums was the right thing to do. The temperatures are forecasted to be much higher tomorrow which will add to the challenge. We hope for strong reliability tomorrow and that our pace is good enough to be in front. I'm looking forward to the fight.


Andrew Shovlin: A really great result for the whole Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) team and it's very satisfying to see that the chassis and Power Unit are working so well on a track that has caused us some headaches in the past. The day hasn't been completely straightforward; we had a pretty good FP3 session but had to pull Valtteri's car apart before qualifying to replace an electrical loom in the gearbox. It's always a bit unsettling when the car is in pieces running up to qualifying, but the mechanics did a great job preparing it and we were ready to run at the start. It's hard to find a decent gap in the first session here in Austria, as there are twenty cars all trying to do the same on a very short lap. The second and third sessions were a bit easier to manage and the pace in the final session was good. This is normally a circuit that compresses the field so it's great to start from the front. It's going to be an interesting race tomorrow. The track and ambient temperatures are much higher than on Friday which will make life harder for the tyres. We've also got Max starting on the Medium compounds which will go a bit further than our Softs, but in terms of pace, we've not seen much difference between the tyres.

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - Ferrari


Even before taking to the track, Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) was aware that it would not have an easy time of it at the Austrian Grand Prix. This afternoon's qualifying confirmed that and produced a scenario that was even more complex than one could have expected, with around ten cars fighting down to the thousandth of a second for grid places from the third to the seventh row. This was compounded by the very short lap length. Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) managed to get through to the final part of qualifying and was seventh fastest to start from row four. Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) had a more difficult time of it and got no further than Q2, having to settle for eleventh place on the sixth row of the grid for tomorrow's race that gets underway at 15.10 CET.


When qualifying began at 3pm, the track temperature was 53 and the air 27. Both drivers began on the Soft tyre: Sebastian did a 1:04.554 which was good enough for the next phase. Charles was a few tenths slower and so to avoid the risk of being eliminated, he pitted for a new set of tyres, with which he comfortably got to Q2 with a time of 1:04.500.


In the second phase, Charles and Sebastian found themselves fighting with around ten drivers all of whose times were very close. Charles first run was a 1:04.057 while Sebastian did a 1:04.331. The two drivers then pitted for a new set of Softs as the track seemed to improve. Both of them managed to improve, but while the Monegasque got into Q3 with a 1:04.041, the German's time of 1:04"206 meant he was just outside the top ten so that he starts from eleventh on the grid.


In the part that decides the top five rows of the grid, Charles first went out on used Softs, making a small mistake at the first corner on his way to a time of 1:04.539. He came in for his last set of new Softs to post a good 1:03.932, which saw him in sixth place almost to the very end, until he was pushed back to the fourth row. It's not all bad as it means he gets to start from the clean side of the track. It will be a tough race tomorrow in which being patient and not making mistakes will be key.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "Seventh place is the best we could do today. Of course it's not where we want to be but we are just not quick enough, so we need to work hard and try to catch up. There's still a bit of performance we can get here and there and we need to put everything together, getting the best out of the package we have, because for now it's all we've got. The smallest detail is very important as everyone is very close now.


"It was a difficult day but at least now we know where we are. As a team all we can do is cheer up and find the positive in all of this, even though it's not easy. We need to work all together in a constructive way and try to do the best job possible to improve things in the next few races. We should keep our moral up and be motivated and just work to improve. This is the way forward to get out of these hard times. The balance of the car is quite good but it's the overall performance which is still not good enough.


"As for the race, anything can happen and having a good strategy with the right tyre management, maybe we can score some good points."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I didn't feel so confident with the car towards the end of the session, but the race is tomorrow and that's the part of the weekend we look forward to the most. So, we will see what we can learn from today to improve for tomorrow. Our car was not quick enough and the balance was not ideal. I think we were losing a bit on the straights with too much drag, but in some corners we are very competitive.


"For sure we would have liked to be faster, but P11 puts us in a good spot for the race, with a free tyre choice allowing us to do something different with the strategy, which could be important as it is meant to be much hotter tomorrow. It's not ideal and I am not fully happy and we clearly did not have as much in hand as the others, but our race pace should be more competitive."


Mattia Binotto Team Principal: "There's no point denying that was a disappointing qualifying session. We knew the start of the season would be difficult for us and today's result certainly confirmed that to be the case, even more so than we had expected. We have to analyse very carefully every aspect of our performance and compare it to the opposition, trying to understand why there is this gap. Now, we will prepare as well as possible for tomorrow's race, which will be tough with plenty of unknown factors, more so than usual, it being the first of this strange season. We will carry out our tasks to the best of our ability, trying to get everything out of the package we have here. It's pointless to predict where we might finish and we must just try and score as many points as possible.


"At least Saturday in Spielberg has ended on a positive note for us as three of our Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Driver Academy drivers made a clean sweep of the podium places in the first Formula 2 race of the season. Congratulations to Callum Ilott on taking his first win in this very competitive category and well done to second and third placed Marcus Armstrong and Robert Shwartzman, both of them on their F2 debut. Giuliano Alesi did well to fight his way up the order to sixth and Mick Schumacher was also a contender, in the battle for the win for two thirds of the race."

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "I think third on the grid is a good start, of course I would have liked to fight for pole position but that wasn't possible today. On a single lap around this track we have never been the strongest but there are things we can for sure improve moving into qualifying next weekend. Tomorrow is a different day and we have a different strategy starting on the medium tyres compared to everyone else around us on the soft. It's going to be warmer as well so hopefully that will also work to our advantage. That doesn't mean that Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) are going to be slow, but hopefully it will close the gap a little bit. First we need to have a good start as I don't want to do the same as last year and then we will do everything we can to fight for the win. It's a shame that the fans are not here at our home track as they really help to make a good atmosphere but we'll try to make it an exciting race for everyone watching on TV."



Alex Albon: "It feels good to be back in a qualifying session and I enjoyed it, but I'm not overly happy with my result. I struggled a bit at the beginning but by the end I was ok. We just weren't able to maximise it today. On the first run in Q3 I was too far behind the pack and although it's not Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), it's similar here in that a slipstream is worth a good chunk of time, but there was some time in my driving too. On my second Q3 run we got yellow flags after Bottas went off so that wasn't ideal but P5 on the grid isn't too bad and let's see how our race pace is tomorrow."


Christian Horner: "Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) gave a dominant performance today, but it was also a positive start for us, with Max qualifying in P3 and Alex in P5. We made a brave strategy decision resulting in Max being the only driver in the top ten to start on the medium tyre, which provides us with many strategic options for the race. The temperatures are also due to increase tomorrow which helped us take the win last year so that gives us confidence to take the fight to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes). The entire Team are excited to be back racing and it couldn't be better starting the season at our home track. Let's see what tomorrow brings but it is shaping up to be a great race."

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - McLarenCarlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "It's been a very good day for the team. Congrats! We can be happy with the performance of the car after winter testing. It's good to be fighting in the top 10 already in the first weekend, so very happy about that. Personally, I've been struggling a bit the whole weekend, not finding the right balance for certain corners, and I couldn't put together the final lap I was aiming for. Otherwise I think P8 is not a bad starting position for tomorrow and we'll definitely be fighting for the first points of the season."




Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "I'm very happy, this was my best qualifying position ever, so it's a big achievement for myself but also for the team. It's the best team result for six years, so it's good to see the progress we've made. However, this result doesn't mean we've made it, we've got to keep working hard. That's what we've been doing this whole weekend, we keep chipping away. We've got a good starting position for tomorrow, so I'm happy with that - a good qualifying throughout. I was confident, even though it didn't always look like we were the third-best team. To put it all together come Q3, and especially on the second run, made me happy. I think it's good for us as a team but tomorrow's a different day and we'll still have to work hard during the race."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "This was a great result for the entire team today. It's been a real boost for everyone after the challenges we've been through since Australia. We've worked hard and focused on the job, and I'm really proud of everyone here and back at base in Woking. It's only one qualifying result and we know we still have a long way to go to get back to where we want to be. Therefore it's important to keep our heads down and keep pushing, but the team executed well today and this gives us a strong base to build on.


"Congratulations to both our drivers for a good day's work.


"Carlos progressed well through the sessions and he had the pace to be higher than P8. Unfortunately we didn't fully get the last lap in.


"Lando did a great job throughout qualifying, and did a final great lap when it mattered to deliver his P4 time, giving us our best qualifying performance for six years.


"Of course, we have our first race of 2020 ahead of us tomorrow which is another story and will bring new challenges, but for today the whole team can be very satisfied with our achievement. We will intensively prepare as always and look forward to a good race tomorrow."

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team will start tomorrow's Austrian Grand Prix with Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) tenth and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) fourteenth on the grid.




After a promising Friday, the goal for the team was to progress both cars into Q3 and inside the top 10 on the grid.
Daniel and Esteban comfortably advanced through Q1 after two runs on Pirelli's Soft tyres.


In Q2, Esteban found improvements on his second run but it was not enough to make Q3 on his debut in Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team colours, finishing in fourteenth place.


Daniel went through the second round of qualifying in ninth and looked to build on that position in the top 10 shootout. However, a yellow flag while improving on his lap meant he had to abort the final part of his effort and he settled for tenth position.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "I had to lift on the last run with the yellow flag. We know we could have been better than tenth as we've shown that all weekend. To be in Q3 is positive for us, especially after last year here. It's a sign of more progress. Things like this are out of what you can control, so it's a bit frustrating but it happens. We'll have to go and do it tomorrow and look to push towards the top eight if not, even higher. I'm looking forward to the lights going out tomorrow!"


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "I'm not very satisfied with today as it's not what we wanted to achieve. I know we could have done better with what we had in hand. There were just a few little details that we didn't get right. I want to review what happened as the gap to where I want to be is pretty big. We'll take a look and keep working hard. It wasn't enough today, but tomorrow we'll aim to come back stronger."


Ciaron Pilbeam, Chief Race Engineer: "The end result wasn't quite what we were targeting but, nevertheless, we're in a position to contend for points tomorrow, which is when it counts. The yellow flag for Daniel in Q3 on his push lap on new tyres meant he had to lift, and it was impossible for him to improve his lap time. For Esteban it was a case of not piecing it all together and he also missed out on a tow on his Q2 lap, which likely cost him a little bit of time. We have some options on strategy to assess for tomorrow."

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm pleased with my result today. After yesterday's practice sessions we might have expected that it was not going to be an easy Qualifying for us today, but overnight we managed to make some good improvements to the car. I think we can be happy with both cars in Q2. At the moment that's where we are, but we have a free choice of tyres and so many things can happen during a race, so hopefully this will give us a good opportunity to fight for points tomorrow. The target is always the same and we'll push as much as we can to get a good result here at Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s home race."




Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "It's hard to know what to expect for the race, as today's Quali is about a single lap and tomorrow it's 71. Qualifying was ok, although to be honest my laps weren't super tidy and I left some lap time on the table, because of a couple of mistakes. But the pace was there considering that we were unhappy yesterday in FP1 and worked hard to improve the car from then on. We got just about everything out of the car this afternoon. We lack a couple of tenths here, but historically this track has always been a bit tricky for us and we are already in better shape than we were here last year. We are starting from a position where we can fight for some points and have a strong clean race."


Jody Egginton (Technical Director): "Friday was in some respects more difficult than it should have been, but the guys took a few lessons on board and reacted positively ahead of today and as a result extracted more from our car. The set-up changes made overnight on both sides of the garage were effective, with both cars showing balance improvements during FP3 and the two drivers making good use of these changes to set some more representative times in this morning's session. We felt qualifying was going to be close. Both cars navigated Q1 without too much fuss and the first runs in Q2 were fine. However, we did not manage to take the next step in the final runs with either driver in Q2 in what was a very tight midfield. We were unable to make the cut for Q3 on this occasion, ending qualifying in 12th and 13th which is disappointing but has also highlighted the primary areas in which we need to improve our package. Our focus now switches back to preparations for the race and, with the qualifying positions providing us with some useful strategy options, we will be looking to take advantage of any opportunities. We are all very much looking forward to getting back down to the business of going racing tomorrow in what we expect will be an exciting race."


Toyoharu Tanabe (Honda F1 Technical Director): "This first qualifying of 2020 produced some surprises. We have Max on row 2 and Alex on row 3, which is a positive result. However, the time gap to the quickest was not that small. But with Max starting on the Medium tyres and our race pace that we had in free practice looking encouraging, we can hope to have a good race tomorrow. AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri) managed to improve the car from yesterday and 12 and 13 on the grid is encouraging. It would be nice if the team could score points in the debut event with its new name. Our PU worked fine in all four cars so far this weekend and we look forward to a good race, knowing that the competition looks very close."

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - Racing PointSergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I'm happy with sixth on the grid: I matched Albon for fifth, but unfortunately he set the lap before me! It was a good performance by the team - the car has been consistent and is working well, and it was a good lap in Q3. I'm confident for tomorrow because I think our race pace should be strong, and we'll be in the mix to fight for points, but we'll also see how all the other teams stack up. The first lap is always tricky here, but if we can keep it clean and tidy I think we can gain some ground through the first few corners. It's such a buzz to be back racing and let's see what we can do tomorrow."




Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was a positive qualifying for the team and both cars in Q3 is a great way to start the season. The team has done a strong job over the winter to develop a competitive car. My Q3 lap was clean, and it was a good shot, but there's always room for improvement to optimise the lap. It's really tight here between all the cars, so a couple of tenths makes a big difference and can cost you as many as five or six places. That's what the fans back home want to see, as well as the drivers. We're in a good position to score points in tomorrow's race and it's going to be an exciting one."

Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "It's great to be trackside again and today's qualifying session was the first proper chance to see just where we sit relative to our competition. After promising form in practice, we knew that getting both cars in Q3 was achievable, so it's satisfying to be lining up in sixth and ninth for tomorrow's race. Checo and Lance were tidy and consistent throughout the session - just what's needed on such a short lap where a few tenths can cost you a handful of positions on the grid. I believe we've also got a competitive race car for tomorrow - based on the data from the long runs we did in second practice. The weather forecast suggests hotter temperatures tomorrow, but I think we've put ourselves in a good position to race for points with both cars."

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa RomeoThe first qualifying session of the year came and went - a little too quickly - as the sun shone on Spielberg: and just when we were hoping for a good result to set us up for a solid result in tomorrow's season opener, things turned against us. We will line up on the grid with Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) in P18 and Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) in P19, both our drivers falling foul of circumstances that saw them bow out in Q1 when both had a chance to progress.



With a close midfield battle developing to claim a spot in Q2, a perfect effort was required: unfortunately, traffic scuppered Kimi's chances of progression, while an off while on a fast lap brought an end to Antonio's bid for a place in the top 15.


Not an ideal start, of course. But the weekend - and the season that is just dawning - is still long and tomorrow's race offers an immediate chance of redemption. With hard work and a little bit of luck, we can still turn this Austrian Grand Prix right.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "It's been a challenging start to the weekend and we will have our work cut out in tomorrow's race. We needed things to go our way and unfortunately we hit trouble with both cars, Kimi finding traffic on his flying lap and Antonio going wide when he was improving his time. It's definitely not where we wanted to be on the grid and not ideal when looking at tomorrow, but we will need to be at our best to move up and recover a good result."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We kind of expected a difficult day but that's where we seem to be right now. We knew we would be on the limit, and finding a bit of traffic on my final lap did it for me. We have to find a way to regain our competitiveness against our rivals: it's only the first race, we are not where we want to be but we have the time to improve. Tomorrow we will try to recover a good result: we have nothing to lose so we'll just go out and try to do the best we can."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "Not the start we wanted, but we have to focus on ways to make it better tomorrow. I pushed really hard on my final lap, I was on the limit and unfortunately I made a small mistake: I knew I had to try something special but it didn't work out. We can hopefully make up some ground in the race: I think we are a bit stronger in the long run pace so if we get the strategy calls right and keep out of trouble in the opening laps, we can have some confidence in gaining some places as the race progresses."

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - HaasHaas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) and Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) qualified 15th and 16th, respectively, for Sunday's Austrian Grand Prix, the season-opening round of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring.




The Q1 run-plan consisted of two timed stints for Grosjean and Magnussen utilizing the Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires throughout. Grosjean's first stint delivered a 1:05.975 which he then bettered on his second set of tires to advance to Q2 courtesy of a 1:05.094 - good for 15th on the timesheet. Magnussen banked a 1:05.433 on his first outing before improving to a 1:05.164 on a second set of softs to place 16th overall in Q1, just missing the cut by one spot.
Q2 saw Grosjean produce a best lap of 1:04.691 on his final run to qualify 15th overall with only the top-10 in the session progressing to Q3.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "We knew going into the session that our qualifying pace wasn't as good as we'd hoped for, but it's somewhere in line with what we saw from pre-season testing. The positive is that the race pace seems to be better than qualifying, so I'm obviously hopeful that tomorrow we can be fighting and have some fun. There's clearly work to be done on the car to enable us to go faster, but we've seen some encouraging things too. We'll keep working, put our heads down, and we'll see how we go."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "We haven't qualified where we thought we would be. I had slightly higher hopes, and I know the team had. It's a bit disappointing to find ourselves out in Q1 but that was the pace we had. P16 is obviously not fantastic. I did my best, I felt like I did a decent lap, but it's tricky to be out already. At the moment it looks like the other teams have found more than we have. I know we've been working to improve our car. We'll continue to work hard on that but for now our focus is on tomorrow. Our race pace yesterday didn't look terrible in comparison to our qualifying pace. We definitely need a bit more; we need to find it. I'm hopeful and I'm going to be doing my best to get something out of the race."


Guenther Steiner: "Following the first free practices of the season, I think we were somewhat prepared for this. Our aim was to get out of Q1 and into Q2. We did it with one car, so half of the mission was accomplished. We've got more work to do to get more out of the car. Everybody has worked very hard after four months of shutdown, and not an easy shutdown for people. Everybody is very motivated though, and we've just got to deal with what we've got now and try to get better. We obviously need to wait for tomorrow to find our real race pace. We're looking forward to at least being better than last year, as back then we were afraid of going racing - on a normal day we just fell back. Our race pace in Friday practice was decent. The proof is in the pudding, and the pudding is being served tomorrow."

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67188/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 17th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 20th for the Austrian Grand Prix. George clocked a quickest time of 1:05.167 on the first lap of his final run in Q1. On Nicholas's debut F1 qualifying session he recorded a best time of 1:05.757.




Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: The car showed reasonable pace in the morning session following some work overnight. It was a shame for Nicholas that he lost track time following a spin which damaged the front wing. However, the mechanics were able to repair the car in time for qualifying and Nicholas was able to see the data from George's car to understand the improvements made since FP2.


Qualifying was a relatively calm affair with both cars completing their planned runs. Nicholas completed a slightly extended first run as he made up for the time lost in the morning. His final run was very assured, and today's experience will be very valuable when we repeat the exercise again in one week's time. George built on some strong qualifying performances last year to execute a well-planned and well-judged session during which he has able to beat both Alfa Romeos and come very close to qualifying for Q2.


Tomorrow will be a tough fight; however, we are looking forward to a close race with the Alfa Romeos and the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) cars. It is great to be back at the track and with a car that we can compete with. We have a long way to go but today marks a good first step back towards the midfield.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67188/drivers/66/george-russell): Today has exceeded my expectations, I knew we had made a step forward, but I didn't think we would be in this position. Unfortunately, we missed the slipstream that we were aiming for on my previous lap, that cost me about two tenths, but it was definitely a very good effort. We have made a big step forward, and this is the closest we have been on pure pace. The team did a really good job to get the most out of the car so let's see what we can do tomorrow.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I am pleased with my first qualifying session considering how this morning went. I made a silly mistake in FP3 and I was unable to get the laps in to fully prepare myself for qualifying. But I am pretty happy with the pace, and more so because I know there is some time left in me and some time that we can find with the car. We have to go from there and hopefully we have a clean race tomorrow.

Austrian GP: Qualifying team notes - Pirelli

Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) took pole (with Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) going fastest in all the free practice sessions as well) to claim a unique rainbow Pirelli Pole Position Award tyre: symbolising the fight against Covid-19 and promotion of inclusivity that is a key message of Formula 1.

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) will be the only driver in the top 10 to start on the medium tyres, having used them to set his fastest time in Q2. Last year's Austrian Grand Prix winner will start from third on the grid.

The midfield in particular is very close (the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) of Alex Albon in P5 and the Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) of Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) in P6 actually set identical times in Q3). With such a short lap and just one pit stop expected, the timing of that stop will be even more crucial than usual when it comes to gaining track position.

Starting from P11, Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel)'s Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) will be the highest-placed car with a free choice of tyres, handing him the opportunity to do something quite different from his immediate rivals.

Mario Isola: "Bottas's pole position time set the all-time track record at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring today, underlining that the cars have evolved while this year's P Zero tyre range stays the same as 2019. The most interesting strategic moment from qualifying was Verstappen's decision to start the race on the medium tyre, which should allow him to plan a more flexible strategy - with potentially a longer first stint than his rivals. This could be crucial to the race outcome. As expected with a short lap and tightly-matched field, we saw mostly the soft tyre used from start to finish of qualifying.

Each team needed to be sure to get the most out of their cars, given how close the margins were. But in the race tomorrow, all three compounds should have an important role to play."

Vaya carrera. La he visto en dos partes, la primera en directo, luego me ha vencido el sueño en un tramo que, la verdad, estaba siendo un poco previsible, y me acabo de ver la segunda parte que, vamos, de todo menos aburrida. Vaya comienzo mas trepidante.

Me alegro por Bottas, ojalá siga ahi al pie del cañon y no se desinfle. Muy grandes los Mclaren y Leclerc sacando petroleo con un Ferrari que en esa primera mitad, daba pena verlo. Actuaciones muy destacables de practicamente todos los que han acabado, salvo Vettel y Hamilton, el primero por decepcionar una vez mas (cuando de nuevo iba camino a enmendar una carrera dificil) y Hamilton por de nuevo sabotear a Albon ya no solo un podio sino una posible victoria. Se merecia algo mas que esa sanción de tiempo, para mi gusto.

Carrera muy recomendable en cualquier caso.

FORMULA 1 ROLEX GROSSER PREIS VON ÖSTERREICH 2020 - Red Bull Ring - Spielberg
Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 5 de julio de 2020



Valtteri BOTTAS logra la primera victoria de esta atípica temporada.

Ha sido una carrera con varios incidentes, varios periodos de coche de seguridad y con bastantes problemas de fiabilidad que han provocado el abandono de 9 coches, siendo el primero en abandonar uno de los favoritos, Max VERSTAPPEN.

El segundo en cruzar la meta fue HAMILTON pero una sanción de 5 segundos por provocar una colisión con ALBON cuando este le iba a arrebatar la segunda plaza, ha hecho que el podio lo completen Charles LECLERC y Lando NORRIS. Ambos han realizado una magnífica carrera, Leclerc por llevar hasta esa posición un coche que no está a la altura y Norris por su buena gestión y sangre fría, sobre todo en la última vuelta en la que consiguió recortar a Hamilton lo suficiente como para arrebatarle el podio y lo hizo marcando la vuelta rápida de carrera. Magníficos los dos.

Carlos SAINZ también ha hecho una gran carrera y ha cruzado la meta 5º. Estuvo muy cerca de quedar por delante de Norris, ya que lo adelantó en las últimas vueltas pero Lando le devolvió el adelantamiento.

Tras él ha llegado Checo PÉREZ, al que también han sancionado con 5 segundos por exceder el límite de velocidad en el pit lane, aunque la sanción no ha afectado a su posición final.

GASLY, OCON, GIOVINAZZI y VETTEL han completado las posiciones de puntos.

El último en cruzar la meta ha sido LATIFI, el único piloto que ha finalizado y no ha conseguido puntuar. El resto de pilotos ha abandonado.

Vettel se puede dar con un canto en los dientes por llevarse un punto después de la desastrosa carrera que ha tenido, cometiendo errores que le han llevado al final de la parrilla y estando un montón de vueltas sin poder adelantar a RUSSELL.

RÄIKKÖNEN abandonó al perder la rueda delantera derecha que, afortunadamente, cruzó la pista dos veces sin provocar un accidente.

El abandono de KVYAT se produjo cuando su neumático trasero izquierdo reventó.

Desastre de nuevo para Haas, que vió cómo sus dos coches abandonaban por problemas de fiabilidad. Negro futuro para el equipo estadounidense.

Bottas conquista vitória de ponta a ponta na abertura confusa de temporada na Áustria


Após 71 voltas e com mais quebras do que disputas a primeira prova do campeonato de Formula 1 aconteceu em Spielberg. Diferente do que se imaginava do favoritismo de Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas acabou de ponta a ponta, conquistando a vitória na abertura do campeonato. Uma corrida com muitos pilotos sofrendo de falhas técnicas dos seus carros.

Bottas largou bem e manteve a liderança, Norris tentou passar Verstappen que segurou o segundo lugar, Igualmente com Albon que segurou Hamilton. Ainda nos primeiros momentos, Perez superou Leclerc ganhando o 6ºlugar.

Alexander Albon na terceira volta passou Norris e assumiu o terceiro lugar, na volta seguinte foi à vez de Hamilton superar o piloto da Mclaren. O Campeão do Mundo vai para a 4ªposição. Bottas estava a 2.3 segundos a frente de Verstappen. (Com a tática de pneus diferente dos primeiros colocados)

Hamilton chegou pra cima de Albon enquanto que Perez chega em cima de Norris, brigas pelo 3º e 5ºlugares nas primeiras voltas. O Tailandês resistiu a pressão de Lewis até a 9ªVolta, O Britânico passou para o terceiro lugar.

Hamilton teria Verstappen pela frente para chegar em Bottas, mas tudo foi facilitado a sua vida, Pois na volta 11, o carro de Holandês fica lento e se arrasta para os boxes e deixa a corrida. Seria o primeiro a sofrer com falhas de equipamento.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-11-1024x682.jpg

Vettel tentava passar Stroll (Que começava a ter problemas de motor) mas sofria pressão de Daniel Ricciardo da Renault. A sorte do piloto da Ferrari foi que o principal piloto da Renault acabou tendo problemas e acabou deixando a corrida na 18ªvolta.
Ao mesmo tempo que Vettel supera Stroll ganhando o 8ºlugar. Foi nesse momento que os problemas de motor de Stroll se intensificaram, Na volta seguinte, Gasly e Kvyat superaram o piloto da Racing Point, que logo iria para os boxes para abandonar na 21ªVolta. Na mesma volta, Grosjean rodou e acabou tendo de ir para os boxes. Seria a primeira parada da temporada.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-2-1024x683.jpg

Bottas continuava na frente, mas começava a ver sua vantagem cair volta após volta. Hamilton vinha tirando o prejuízo de ter sido punido em 3 posições, após não diminuído a velocidade no final do treino quando Bottas saiu da pista e a bandeira amarela foi acionado em um setores do circuito.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-20-1024x576.jpg

Na 26ªVolta, Ocon estava tentando passar Magnussen e acaba conseguindo na curva 3, ao mesmo tempo que os freios de Kevin Magnussen falha e acaba com a corrida do piloto da Haas, que estava indo numa prova bastante razoável. Apesar de ficar em um local seguro, a direção de prova acionou o safety car pela primeira vez. Todos os pilotos todos se aproveitaram para fazerem a parada e colocarem pneus mais duros, com exceção de Sergio Perez que arriscou colocar pneus médio com 27 voltas completadas. Um pneu duro aguentar 44 voltas era possível, mas um médio aguentar 44 voltas iria ser mais difícil.

Após a retirada do carro do dinamarquês a relargada acontece na 32ªVolta, Bottas continua na frente de Hamilton. Já mais atrás, Leclerc lutou e conseguiu manter a frente de Sainz, Já Vettel tentou passar o piloto da Mclaren, mas foi uma manobra afobada e mal sucedida, Vettel acabou rodando para não bater em Sainz e acabou caindo para o último lugar.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-7-1024x683.jpg

Na volta seguinte, Bottas marcou a melhor volta da prova e ganhou folego sobre Hamilton. Enquanto isso, Perez superou Norris e ganhou o 4ºlugar. Voltas depois, Leclerc chegou a se aproximar de Norris abrindo disputa pela 5ªposição. A Mercedes tinha corrida na mão e Hamilton iria para cima de Bottas. Porém, A equipe por rádio avisou dos problemas no sensor dos dois carros e que ambos não poderiam usar as zebras. Hamilton pediu para usar a potência extra, mas a equipe negou o pedido.

Segundo a Mercedes, o carro do Bottas estava pior do que o carro de Lewis Hamilton, mas o piloto Finlandês não estava se importando com a informação, estava usando a zebra para fugir do companheiro de equipe. Já na parte intermediária, Esteban Ocon vinha tentando passar Danill Kvyat, uma boa briga valendo o 9ºlugar entre a Alpha Tauri e a Renault.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-21-1024x576.jpg

Na 47ªVolta, Bottas estava 1.7 segundos a frente de Hamilton. Já Albon em 3º estava longe dos pilotos da Mercedes e com uma vantagem de 2 segundos sobe Perez, que estava tentando chegar em cima do Tailandês. Norris abriu 3 segundos de Leclerc e se consolidava o 5ºlugar. A prova parecia que vinha tranquila para o final, até que Grosjean erra pela segunda vez, com problemas de câmbio, o francês deixaria a prova. Mas não foi esse abandono que provocou a entrada do safety car, que foi acionado devido ao abandono de George Russell, com problemas no motor, o piloto da Williams encosta o carro na área de escape entre as curvas 5 e 6, na 51ªVolta.

Essa nova bandeira amarela fez com que Albon, Leclerc, Norris, Kvyat, Raikkonen, Vettel e Latifi fosse para os boxes fazerem uma nova parada. Sainz fez isso na 53ªvolta. Bottas, Hamilton e Perez estavam nas 3 primeiras posições com os pneus de 25 voltas de desgaste, enquanto que Albon com os pneus macios novos estava com a chance até mesmo de vencer sua primeira prova na vida.

Na volta 55, tivemos nova relargada, com Bottas e Hamilton mantiveram suas posições, Perez escorrega e Albon se aproveita e passa para o 3ºlugar. Eis que o pneu dianteiro de Raikkonen se solta ainda antes da relargada e o finlandês acaba por encostar na reta dos boxes. Novamente o Safety Car entrava na pista.

A Tensão aumentava muito, restaria poucas voltas para reiniciar a prova. A 11 voltas do final a relargada é dada, Albon vai para cima de Hamilton, vai por fora na curva 4 e quando parecia que iria conseguir a ultrapassagem, acaba tocado pelo campeão do mundo e vai para a caixa de brita. Isso fez com que os comissários investigarem o caso. Enquanto isso, Bottas abria 1.5 segundos na liderança.

Mais atrás, Sainz jr. passou Gasly e assumiu o 6ºlugar na 63ªVolta. Na volta seguinte, Leclerc supera Norris e ganha o 4ªposição, Passando a mirar Perez e o pódio. Enquanto que Vettel foi superado pelo Giovinazzi correndo risco de se quer pontuar, na 11ªposição a poucas voltas do final. Perez acabou sendo superado por Leclerc, o 3ºlugar do Monegasco já estava sendo lucro para a Ferrari.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-3-1024x682.jpg

A Direção de prova decidiu pela punição de 5 segundos a Hamilton, consideraram Lewis culpado pelo incidente que vitimou Albon. Outra punição de 5 segundos foi dada a Sergio Perez por exceder limite de velocidade nos boxes. Com isso, Leclerc que tinha uma missão muito difícil estava com o segundo lugar nas mãos e Perez tinha o pódio na mão, eu falei tinha. Já que Norris que resistiu a um feroz ataque de Sainz jr. e foi para o ataque em cima de Perez, superando o piloto da Racing Point subindo para o 4ºlugar.

Albon com problemas e Kvyat com quebra na sua suspensão abandonaram nas voltas finais. Com apenas 11 pilotos ao final da prova. A vitória ficou com Valtteri Bottas, que de ponta a ponta acabou vencendo pela segunda vez na Áustria e pela 8ªVez na carreira. Repetindo ano passado onde venceu o GP da Austrália (http://portalsportszone.com.br/bottas-em-atuacao-impecavel-conquista-vitoria-em-melbourne/).

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-5-1024x683.jpg

A se destacar Charles Leclerc, com um carro sem condições acabar a prova em 2ºlugar, uma corrida sem erros do monegasco. Lewis Hamilton cruzou em segundo, mas foi insuficiente para o inglês manter seu lugar no pódio. Numa última volta sensacional, Lando Norris acabou fazendo a melhor volta da prova e de quebra acabou ficando com o pódio herdado pela punição a Lewis Hamilton. Foi o primeiro pódio do piloto inglês e o segundo pódio da Mclaren nas últimas 3 corridas. Uma mostra de ressurgimento da equipe de Woking.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-15-1024x576.jpg

Lewis Hamilton acabou sem o pódio, com o 4ºlugar. Se não tivesse as ocorrências dos Safety Car teria sido no mínimo 2º, até mesmo ter conseguido a vitória, mas imponderáveis da corrida acabaram por comprometer o final de semana de Lewis. Carlos Sainz jr. também foi beneficiado por punição e acabou com o 5ºlugar, superando Sergio Perez que perdeu a chance de marcar o 8ºpódio da carreira. O Mexicano ficou com o 6ºlugar.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-19-1024x682.jpg

Pierre Gasly acabou em 7ºlugar, uma corrida correta do piloto da Alpha Tauri que mostrou ter um equipamento competitivo para o campeonato. Esteban Ocon teve uma prova muito da discreta, mas acabou salvando o final de semana da Renault, que pode fazer um bom campeonato. O Francês ficou em 8º.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-22-1024x682.jpg

Antonio Giovinazzi acabou levando a Alfa Romeo ao 9ºlugar, as expectativas não eram nada boas, mas os 2 pontos do piloto italiano aliviam, ou melhor, mascaram o trabalho ruim da equipe italiana. Pior mesmo ficou Sebastian Vettel, Chegando em 10ºlugar por causa das ocorrências no final, pior foi o erro cometido por ele na metade da prova. O ano de 2020 parece ser mais um capitulo do inferno astral que vive o tetracampeão do Mundo.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Austria_domingo_2020-24-1024x683.jpg

Nicholas Latifi fez o que era possível com o Williams e por muito pouco esse possível levou o canadense a marcar pontos na sua estreia na Formula 1. Kvyat e Albon foram classificados em 12º e 13ºlugares por completarem 90% da corrida.

Reacciones de los equipos al finalizar la carrera:

Austrian GP: Race team notes - MercedesValtteri claimed his eighth victory in Formula One, his first of the 2020 season and second at the Austrian Grand Prix.



After a late grid penalty, Lewis started the race from P5. He fought his way to P2 on track, but dropped down to P4 after the chequered flag owing to a five-second time penalt.
With 34 consecutive races in the points, Lewis broke the F1 record for most consecutive point finishes.


Today's result marks the 20th podium place for Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-Benz power in Austria.


Holly Chapman, Trackside Power Unit Engineer for car #77, accepted the Constructors' trophy on behalf of the team.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Winning an F1 race is never easy, but today was particularly challenging. There were so many things going on in the race and it would have been quite easy to make a small mistake and lose it all. When the Safety Car came out the last time, I was thinking 'Come on! Again!?' I guess it was my chance to really master the restarts here. When you're in the lead, you want things to be constant and trouble-free, but today felt more like dodging bullets, though things were never out of control. I could build a good margin in the first stint and look after the car and the tyres to make sure that we could stick to our planned strategy. In the second stint, there was more pressure, particularly after all the Safety Cars. We faced some reliability concerns during the race, which put quite a bit of pressure on us, but luckily we made it to the end with both cars. I think we've shown that we have a good package. We need to get on top of the reliability issues, but I have no doubts that our team can solve those. I'm looking forward to another race here next weekend.

Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): The team did a really great job today and so did Valtteri. I drove my heart out in the race, I did everything I could - but it was just one of those weekends. There are lots of areas where I can improve. I didn't do a great job in Qualifying yesterday and there's only me to blame; then this morning was very unusual to get called up right before the race, but I just tried to keep my head down and drive hard. The scenario with Alex felt more like a racing incident to me. The time penalty meant that I lost the podium, but it is what it is. The car felt great, although reliability was a real issue for us today. But at least we finished, so we'll take those points. Obviously it's a loss from a potential 1-2, but I'll try to recover those in the coming races. Ultimately, this was not a good weekend for me, but it could be worse - I'll take what I've got, try to learn from it and be better next time.


Toto Wolff: What a great race for the fans who waited so long to see F1 back on TV. Congratulations to Valtteri and the entire for the win. It wasn't a good day for Lewis who was very unfortunate with the two penalties. The grid penalty is something you must take on the chin, but the five-second time penalty felt too harsh from my perspective. I looked at the video a couple of times: Lewis had full steering lock in the corner, Albon had track left to make the corner, so in my opinion this wasn't justified. But I recognise that the stewards have a very complex job of coming up with the right decisions and sometimes those decisions go for you, sometimes against. As a team, we faced some real challenges with our gearbox in the race. The situation was pretty serious; we saw issues on Valtteri's car early on and a little later on Lewis' car as well. It was something that could end your race instantly. We know that it was linked to the vibration of the car which is why we asked both drivers to keep off the kerbs. At a certain stage it looked like neither of our cars would finish the race, so we were trying to cruise home and really look after our cars. Both drivers showed strong pace, they were pretty evenly matched this weekend and it was really more the reliability that caused us headaches. Spielberg stresses some parts on the car more than any other track in the season, so we need to work hard to improve the situation for the next weekend, but we have some ideas on how to do that.


Andrew Shovlin: Well done to Valtteri and the team, he has driven very well all weekend and
deserved the win. The race itself was pretty tough; we've been nursing some issues all weekend that are causing a build-up of electrical noise on various systems and halfway through the race, we were seeing signs of the problem on Valtteri's car and later similar with Lewis. For a lot of the race our focus was just getting two cars to the finish, so we were trying to get both to stay off the kerbs and also trying to give the Power Unit an easy time. The first stint was fairly straightforward. The plan with Valtteri was to steadily build a gap to Max and Lewis just had to make progress through the field. Alex wasn't making it easy for Lewis to get past and we did feel that Lewis gave him plenty of room to stay on the track and certainly more than he gave Lewis at the start, so it was a bit disappointing to get the penalty but sometimes these things don't go your way. The timing of the safety car wasn't great for us, we'd have been able to get both cars in but didn't want to end up having to overtake given the concerns with vibration so it was a balance of risk but we'll review that before next Sunday. We could also have done a better job at the end to keep Lewis on the podium but when Valtteri slowed for the yellow on lap 69 it left Lewis a bit sandwiched. However, the bigger picture is that we have a car that is very fast but right now it's too fragile. We've not got long to fix the issues and given that the track won't change, it's a safe bet that they won't all go away. We'll be working hard over the next few days to solve these problems and look forward to racing here again in a week's time. On a positive note for the fans, it's unlikely that the second race will be a cut and paste of the first!

Austrian GP: Race team notes - FerrariFormula 1 got back underway after the third longest pause in the history of the sport and the Austrian Grand Prix did not disappoint, offering plenty of action. By the end Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) finished second with Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and tenth with Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel). Both drivers were on the attack in the final part of the race, pulling off several exciting overtaking moves.



This Sunday was an important one for Formula 1 and for sport in general, as this was the first truly global championship to restart after the Covid 19 pandemic, hence the message that flashed on the screens during the formation lap. Before the start, drivers stood on the finish line wearing shirts with the words "End Racism" to underline Formula 1's commitment to making a change for good in motorsport, via a series of initiatives under the hashtag #WeRaceAsOne.

This weekend, the Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) SF1000 cars also carried the message #ForzaAlex in support of Alex Zanardi, the former racing driver and Paralympic champion, who is still in a Siena hospital following a recent handbike accident.

When the red lights went out, Charles stayed seventh, while Sebastian reacted well to get ahead of Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) in the Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault). On lap 11, the Scuderia drivers moved up a place after Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) retired and four laps later, Vettel also passed Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) in the Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) to go eighth. On lap 25, Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) went off with a brake problem on his Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) which brought out the Safety Car, so Charles and Seb pitted for the first time, taking on Hard tyres.

On lap 31, with the field bunched up at the restart, Vettel closed on Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) in the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) and tried to attack him at turn 3. Unfortunately, they collided with Vettel coming off worst, spinning and dropping to the back of the field.

20 laps later and the Safety Car was out again, this time after George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67218/drivers/66/george-russell) parked his Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) at the side of the track. The two Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) therefore pitted yet again, this time fitting Softs. Charles was sixth at this point, behind Alexander Albon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/67/alexander-albon) (Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull),) Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) (Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point)) and Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) (McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)). Seb was 13th behind Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) (Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo)).

In the closing laps Charles and Sebastian gave it their all. On lap 64, Charles managed to pass Norris on the outside of turns 4-5-6 and two laps later he got ahead of Perez in the Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) to be third. Just before that, Albon had spun off after a collision with Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) for which the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver was given a five second penalty. It meant that having crossed the line third, Charles was promoted to second and Sebastian, pushing very hard in the closing stages, managed to secure the final point for tenth place.


This was Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc)'s 11th F1 podium, after also finishing second last year at this track. For Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) it was podium number 771, the 26th in the Austrian Grand Prix. For the first time ever in Formula 1, the teams will race in the same place for the next round. Sunday 12 July sees everyone back on track in Spielberg for the first Formula 1 Styrian Grand Prix.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "The team did a fantastic job, both in terms of strategy and with the car itself. We knew we had to make the best of it today. I told myself that we had to take any opportunity we had and that's the way I drove. I am very happy with the result - we didn't expect to finish in second place.


"While it was great to start off the season with a podium, we cannot ignore the fact that we aren't where we want to be in terms of performance. We were lucky this weekend, with safety cars and retirements mixing things up, but we can't expect to fight for the win at these next few races.


"We have to stay motivated and I am sure that the whole factory is working very hard to bring us back stronger. And that's the spirit we need to remain focused on our targets."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It was a disappointing race for me, even if we knew beforehand it would be tough. I struggled for the entire race, already after the first two laps, just as I had done in quali. The balance and speed I had on Friday just slipped away from us and I was really struggling to keep the car on track. So now we have to try and find out why in the hope of doing better next weekend."


Mattia Binotto Team Principal: "A really busy weekend ended with a result that far exceeded our expectations going into this race, especially after the way qualifying went. Charles drove an amazing race, fighting like a lion from the first to the last lap and making the most of every opportunity that came his way. Today's second place is mainly down to him. At least Sebastian managed to get back in the points, but he struggled more than his team-mate with the balance of the car and now we have to work out why and in time for next weekend.


"The 19 points we picked up here in Spielberg were also down to reliability, which is always vital, as well as the work the team has done here at the track and back in Maranello over this past week. However, it does not make up for the fact that, in pure performance terms, we are behind, more than we could legitimately have expected.


"That's why we are pushing as hard as we can to bring updates to the car as soon as possible, although we know that no package can be a magic wand that radically changes the hierarchy among the teams. Having said that, we have seen in this first race that a few tenths more or less can make a big difference in terms of grid position, so we must leave no stone unturned.

Austrian GP: Race team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "I'm not quite sure what happened yet, we'll investigate and find out but of course that's not how you want to start the season. I had a good start, unlike last year, and quite early on I could see that Valtteri was quick so fighting for the win was always going to be a big challenge. I think it would have been an easy podium and third would have been a decent start to the season but what can you do? This is racing and it is what it is, you can't change the result now. It is a shame for everyone who worked so hard to get us here this weekend but we will just focus on the race next week and hope for something better."



Alex Albon: It's still quite fresh so I've got to be careful what I say but there's nothing to add apart from how frustrating that is. I really think we could have easily won that race. We had a great strategy, the guys did a great job in the pit stops, yes we had a little bit of fortune with the Safety Car, but the car was feeling good. The hard tyre wasn't very strong today and I knew the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) would have cold tyres on the re-start, so I already planned to get past them within a few laps of the Safety Car coming in. I feel like I had completed the move on Lewis already, and I was thinking about getting Bottas on the next lap. The contact with Lewis was so late in the corner that it surprised me. I was right on the edge of the track and I knew if I gave him all the space I could it would be up to him if he wants to crash or not. This time I was the one on the attack and he was defending. I wouldn't say this one hurts more than Brazil but that incident was maybe 50/50 whereas this one isn't. Obviously we've got next weekend to focus on now, we'll need a bit of luck to have the same opportunity as today, but let's see."


Christian Horner: "It was a very frustrating first race and I'm almost lost for words. Losing Max early on whilst he was running in second place on a better tyre was obviously painful but we still had Alex in a good position. Alex was putting in a very strong performance, strategically we got the call right to concede a position to the Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) but take on a new soft tyre. At the re-start Alex passed Lewis and inexplicably for the second time in three races Lewis has hit him and taken him out of the race. It was clearly a mis-judgement by Lewis which he received a penalty for but that still cuts deep for Alex. We then had to retire the car with what looks like a PU issue, which will now be investigated. It's hugely frustrating to come away from this race with a double DNF and no points, when we could have been in a position to win. The positives are that we looked to be having a competitive race but we still have a bit of pace to find ahead of next weekend."

Austrian GP: Race team notes - McLarenCarlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "First of all, congratulations to Lando for his first podium in F1 and to the whole team for a well-deserved strong first weekend in 2020! From my side, overall a good race and a good comeback on the last stint. In general it was an interesting race with several Safety Cars and many good battles on track. I'm looking forward to racing again here in seven days. There are good opportunities and it can be important for the rest of the championship. Time to keep focused, prepare well for next weekend and go again!"



Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "We're all very happy, it's a great achievement for race one. We did a bit more on merit this weekend: our pace has been very good here. It's not been easy: we haven't had the third-fastest car on the grid - but we put it all together pretty much every time. We limited the mistakes we made and took advantage of every opportunity that came our way. Because of that, we got a podium, so a big thanks goes to the team at home and at the track for all their hard work.


"I would love to say we can achieve this next weekend again. We did have a little bit of luck but we have a good car and we've kicked the season off with a great result. We know we've got a lot of work to do but if we can maintain this momentum, we can hopefully have a great season."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "I'm really proud to be part of this team. What an incredible performance from Lando right from lights out and through to the final lap. To finish the first race of the new season with P3 and P5 is simply a great reward for all the hard work everyone has put in. Congratulations and a big thank you to the entire team, both here in Austria and back home at the factory as well as to our colleagues from Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault).


"The team at the track worked very hard to get us to this point across a difficult week when we had many new protocols to work with. Thank you to the FIA, F1 and the promoter here in Austria for putting in place covid-19 protocols that allowed us to start the season in a safe manner and at the same time put on a great show for the fans. We had good reliability, the strategists made all the right calls with the Safety Cars, and hats off to Carlos and Lando for what they've done after that long break.

"Today was very encouraging and a race we can still learn a lot from, giving us confirmation that we are heading in the right direction, with both the development of the car and the way we operate. We had some doubts after Friday's running, and weren't sure we would have the pace to fight our competitors. The race was a confirmation that we have a solid base in terms of performance over a grand prix distance as well as for one lap in qualifying. Heads down now. Let's make sure we don't get carried away with the good result today and come back strong again next week.


"Finally, I want to say a big thank you to our partners and fans. Their support throughout this period has been incredible, even though they are supporting us remotely."

Austrian GP: Race team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team's Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) finished in a strong eighth place on his return to racing after a thrilling and action-packed Austrian Grand Prix for the 2020 Formula 1 curtain raiser. Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) retired from the 71-lap race with a suspected cooling issue.



On his Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) debut, Esteban lined up for his first race start since the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in 2018 in fourteenth place.

He lost two positions after a slow getaway off the line on Pirelli's Medium tyres, but he was able to make progress as a result of cars ahead of him retiring.

Esteban pitted for Hards on lap 26 under the Safety Car. A further two Safety Cars towards the climax of the race allowed the Frenchman to push into the top 10 as he took eighth place at the flag, just 0.774 seconds down on seventh.

Daniel had made a bright start from tenth place and he was an exciting, early fight for points with several other cars. But, he was forced to retire as a precaution for a suspected cooling issue on his Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) R.S.20 on lap 17.

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Today was a reminder of what Formula 1 can be like and, sometimes, it's unkind. It's a shame to retire early, but we had a cooling issue and we had to retire the car as a precaution before we did any further damage. I think there are a lot of positives from the weekend. Our low fuel pace looked strong and we know we have a little bit to learn on high fuel. We can take a lot from it and it's good we have another chance next weekend. We'll learn and move forwards."

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It felt good to be back racing properly today. Finishing in the points is a great result, especially as I'm still a little rusty! I'm satisfied with how the race went, but we know we need to qualify better in order to be further up the order. Our race pace was good, and I was happy with how the car felt. We'll review the race and see what we can rectify and improve for next weekend. We know there will be an opportunity to fight for higher positions and I'm really looking forward to the next race."


Cyril Abiteboul, Team Principal: "It was very good to be racing again. It was a typical first race of the season with lots of things going on throughout and some possible high reward for anyone completing the race distance. We didn't manage that entirely with Daniel's retirement as a precaution for a cooling issue. Esteban did a very good job and it was a solid return to racing for him, bringing us our first points in Austria since the team returned to Formula 1. He will be able to build from today. The other positive of the weekend is our baseline performance at a track where we have been very weak in the past, but in a very competitive midfield. Ahead of next week, we must focus on the main negative of the weekend: the car reliability that not only cut Daniel's race short but also impacted Esteban's build up to qualifying earlier in the weekend compromising his starting position."

Austrian GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It felt amazing to get back racing after such a long break and I think we started the season with a really exciting race. If someone had told us that we would have been P7 on Sunday we would have signed straight away, so I think we can be very happy with my result after a difficult start to the weekend. We knew the race was going to be a challenge because the Renaults, McLarens and Racing Points are very strong, but I had some good fights on track and managed to stay out of trouble until the end. It was a really good one for us today!"



Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "The race was going really well for me until the contact with Ocon, I had a very good pace and fresher tyres. After the collision, my front wing and a suspension broke, I also had a puncture, so my race was over. This moment cost me a lot of points today, so it's a real shame and very disappointing to finish the day like this. Today it could have been a very strong race for me."


Jody Egginton (Technical Director): "What an afternoon. Today's race has been very action-packed and full of incidents. We have come away with some good points with one car, with the other car having the opportunity for a similar result but was not able to execute on this occasion. The entire team trackside and back at base performed really well today and the result is a credit to all of them. We have some work to do with our package to move it forward, but we have a good base car and there are some developments on the way, so are looking forwards to the next races. Overall, it's been a good start to our life as Scuderia AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri) in Austria."


Franz Tost (Team Principal): "First of all, I want to send a big thank you to Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) for making it possible to start the season here at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring, a fantastic location in the Styrian region. We were also very lucky as we had good weather all weekend. Generally speaking, today's race was very exciting with the deployment of quite a few safety cars which have helped the show. Pierre's seventh-place finish was the best possible result we could have achieved, also considering that we started in 12th and 13th position on the grid. Both drivers did a really good job, together with the team, who operated very well and took the right decisions strategy-wise. Daniil could also have scored points today, but the collision with Ocon compromised his race due to a suspension failure, which we need to investigate now. The progress showed by the team, with steps forward in the general setup and relative performance from Friday's sessions to the race, makes us look forward to next week's Styrian Grand Prix, where we hope to be able to replicate today's result or achieve an even better one."


Toyoharu Tanabe (Honda F1 Technical Director): "The first race of the season ended with three of our cars retiring, which is disappointing. So the only positive is that Gasly drove well to give AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri) some points in their first race. For Aston Martin Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing, Verstappen was going well from second on the grid, until he had to retire due to an electrical issue. Albon was very unlucky to lose second place in the last few laps, but he was still fighting for points until he also had to retire, due to a suspected PU electrical issue. At the moment, we are investigating the causes of the two failures. We stay here in Austria for the second round next weekend and in the limited time available we will analyse all our data and try and take countermeasures to ensure we perform more reliably in Round 2."

Austrian GP: Race team notes - Racing PointSergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "We had to fight hard today and we had strong pace. Sixth place is a good way to start the season, but we could have finished even higher. We were unlucky with the safety cars, but it's easy to say after the race that we should have pitted a second time. I had to defend from drivers on fresher tyres in the final laps, which was a challenge. However, this was a good race to learn plenty about the car and our performance. The main positive is that we have a competitive package and I think we can be fighting for another strong result here next week."




Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was a good start to the race, but then I began to lose power early on. We tried to make some changes to various settings, but eventually we had to retire the car. We'll look into the problem and come back stronger next time. The car felt good at first and I think our pace would have been strong. We could have scored a good amount of points today."


Otmar Szafnauer: "That was a pretty busy afternoon on all fronts and I'm sure great entertainment for the fans watching on television. After such a long break from racing, it was important to start our season with a handful of points with Sergio in sixth place. It's frustrating to see a podium slip away in the final few laps, but it was difficult to hold off those cars with a tyre advantage. With so many safety car interruptions, we had some difficult decisions to make and we chose to preserve track position rather than pit. The cars behind us effectively had free pit stops and could react to what we did - pitting when we chose to stay out. That was certainly the case with the McLarens and Leclerc. It was disappointing to see Lance retire early when the car started to lose power. The investigation is underway on what caused that, but ultimately, after attempting to fix the problem through mode changes failed, protecting the power unit was the priority."

Austrian GP: Race team notes - Alfa RomeoIt took seven months to get back racing, but the sweet taste of Formula One action is finally back. More than half a year since the final race in the dazzling lights of Abu Dhabi, here come the familiar feeling of trepidation before the lights-out moment, the butterflies in the stomach during a pit-stop and the elation as the chequered flag falls.



As racing comes back, so does the focus on the end result. Just like 12 months ago, Austria was the backdrop for a great performance by Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): on the stage where he scored his first Formula One points, the Italian executed a spotless race, overcoming the hurdles of several Safety Cars and charging rivals to score two points and open the team's tally in the Constructors' standings.


On the other side of the garage, there was no luck for Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen). After rallying from his starting position of 19th to challenge for the points in the opening stages, he was the main loser of the first Safety Car period, the race being neutralised immediately after his first visit to the pits, gifting his rivals a free stop. Having recovered to the low teens, he was then forced into retirement by a technical failure that caused the loss of the front right wheel.


Despite this blot on the team's copybook, it was a positive Sunday in which the team showed a better turn of pace and the ability to capitalise on the occasions that would emerge during a high-attrition weekend - a promising sign ahead of next week's Steiermark Grand Prix in this same venue.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "Scoring points in the opening race of the season is always a good thing, but there are more positives than just the result at the chequered flag. Our race pace was a definite step forward from yesterday's qualifying and we were able to extract more of the potential of the C39. As a team we kept a cool head during such a rollercoaster of a race and to bring home points is a good reward for all the work ahead of this race. It was a pity to lose Kimi this way, but we will investigate the issue and make sure we can fight for a place in the top 10 with two cars from next week."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It's a shame to end the race like this when things were looking good. Compared to yesterday, we had made a step forward and we had a reasonable turn of speed. The timing of the first Safety Car cost us places, but we were still in a good position and with new tyres I could have fought for some points. Unfortunately then we had to retire: the problem came as a surprise, I had no warning it would happen. We will need to investigate what happened. For now, we can take some positives from our pace in race conditions and keep improving the car."

Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I am really happy with today's result. After our difficult qualifying yesterday, to get to the points was the maximum we could do. The race wasn't easy, we struggled a little at the start but we got stronger as the race went on. Of course, in such a chaotic race you need a bit of luck, but we were ready to grab any chance with two hands when it came. We put up a big fight for this and in the end P9 is a great way to start the season. I am really happy for the guys and girls in the garage and back at home. There's still a lot to improve but it's just the first race of the season: there's plenty of time and I am already looking forward to being back in the car next week."

Austrian GP: Race team notes - HaasHaas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) and Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) were both unable to finish the opening race of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship held at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring in Spielberg, Austria.

Magnussen started the race from 16th place on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium tires and gained positions across the opening lap to move into 13th spot. As a race of attrition developed at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring Magnussen gained positions and was on the fringes of the top-10 when he unfortunately joined the list of retirements. While battling with Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) on lap 26 Magnussen's VF-20 suffered a suspected brake issue on the approach to Turn 3, though thankfully stopped short of making contact with the barriers, and he was forced into retirement.


Grosjean began from 17th spot, also on the medium tires, and relinquished one position on the opening lap, but a wide moment through Turn 4 and a spin left him seeking fresh tires, and on lap 21 he came into the pits to take on a set of the hard rubber. Grosjean emerged back on track and held 15th position but a second off-track excursion of the race at Turn 4, also as a result of brake issues, on lap 50 proved to be his final contribution to the race and he came into the garage to retire the car.


Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) claimed victory during a frenetic grand prix, crossing the line 2.7s clear of Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc), while McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)'s Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) took third place after a time penalty for Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton).


Formula One will stay on at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring for another event, titled the Styrian Grand Prix, to take place across July 10-12, marking Round 2 of the 2020 championship.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "The brakes went - we had been nursing them since lap one, looking after them. Obviously, something is not quite on the right level on the cooling, so we have to work and sort that out for next week. I think one of the main concerns is the pace, it was a very tricky car to drive today, especially in traffic. We'll put our heads down and see what we can come up with. We need to come back next week with a better solution."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "I was being told to do more and more lifting to save the brakes. By the end of it, I was just doing everything I could and still they blew up. That happened when (Esteban) Ocon launched an attack on me, I think he took the cooling and that was the moment they went. It was always right there on the limit. It wasn't anticipated, it's not like we knew we'd have big problems with the brakes. We knew we'd have to do some lift and coast for the brakes, but not all in that way. I might have had some debris in the ducts I guess. It's a shame, we were P11, and if it hadn't been for all that brake saving I might have had a decent pace."


Guenther Steiner: "Obviously, it wasn't the day we wanted today. We had brake issues because of overheating on both cars - it was the same thing. That's what took us out of the race when there was a good possibility for us to get into the points. But ‘if and when' didn't work today. The good thing is, the drivers seemed to be as happy as they could be with the car. They feel that the car is raceable, so it just feels like we missed an opportunity. If we work hard, we can get into the points going forward, so that's what we'll be doing."

Austrian GP: Race team notes - WilliamsNicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) finished 11th on his Formula One debut in the Austrian Grand Prix. George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67222/drivers/66/george-russell) was forced to retire after losing fuel pressure on lap 49.



George started the race 17th, and Nicholas 20th, both on the medium Pirelli tyre. Both cars pitted under the Safety Car for the hard Pirelli tyre, George on lap 25 and Nicholas the following lap.


Nicholas made a second stop, again under a Safety Car, on lap 56 for the soft Pirelli tyre.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: The race was busy with a high attrition rate, which sadly included the retirement of George due to concerns with the fuel pressure. Further investigation is on-going and the Power Unit will return to Brixworth for some system tests to determine the root cause of this issue. It was a frustrating end to the weekend for George who until then was having a strong weekend.


Nicholas completed his first F1 race this afternoon and he drove very well in some challenging circumstances. Although he finished just out of the points, he was able to complete the full race distance and as a result gain a lot of valuable experience from the day; although he has practiced race situations repeatedly in the simulator, there is no substitute for the real thing.


We now have a few days to prepare for the second race of the new season. If the weather allows then this will be a rare opportunity to test some alternative approaches over a full race distance. On Friday we will also give Jack Aitken (https://www.pitpass.com/67222/drivers/64/jack-aitken) his first experience of the FW43 as he drives George's car during FP1. Jack has been working hard with the engineers in Grove and we are looking forward to working with him at the track as we continue with our intensive test programme.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): Firstly, thanks to the team for getting us here, it has been a long way to come here. Today was all about learning for me. We struggled early on in the race with some cooling issues so I couldn't push as hard as I wanted to. It was about managing a bunch of things, but that is part of Formula One, it can happen. We got caught out by the first safety car, by staying out an extra lap. Most of the race was unfortunately done by myself, so it was nice that the safety car came out at the end so I could experience running close to the other cars. I am frustrated that I was so close to getting a point, but it is a learning experience and I will come back stronger next weekend.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67222/drivers/66/george-russell): We didn't have as much pace as we were hoping for today, and I struggled a lot out there. I was trying my hardest to hang on with the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and the Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo), but they were too fast. I had a fuel pressure loss, but I don't know all the details, I just had to turn the car off. It's a shame as there were a lot of mistakes made out there today and many cars stopped. It is just one of those things. We still need to make some improvements, and we have the opportunity next week to do that.

Austrian GP: Race team notes - PirelliMercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) was able to take advantage of the first safety car period to switch from soft to hard tyres, maintaining the lead from start to finish with just one pit stop, which was the fastest predicted theoretical strategy. He was the only podium finisher to stop just once.



Another, much longer, safety car period prompted another round of pit stops, prior to the final few racing laps but Bottas (as well as his team mate Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton)) stayed out - unlike many of their rivals who stopped again.

The first safety car was the strategic turning point, with all the drivers swapping to hard tyres for the second stint. The only exception was Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point)'s Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez), who completed the final stint on the medium tyre to finish sixth.


The second and third place finishers, Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)'s Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris), used all three compounds available this weekend.


Mario Isola: "The race strategy was very much dictated by safety cars, with all the teams reacting to rapidly changing circumstances. This also turned what was expected to be one-stop race into a two-stopper for some drivers. There was plenty of action both on and off the track, with all three compounds performing in line with our expectations and an unexpectedly wide variety of strategies. Congratulations also to McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)'s Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) for scoring his first podium in Formula 1, as well as fastest lap. It's been a very difficult start to the season for everyone with the Covid-19 pandemic but we've certainly got off to an exciting beginning now - and we get to do it all over again in a week's time."
