Austrian GP 2017

Following the most unpredictable Grand Prix so far this season, F1 is heading to the Red Bull Ring in Austria. The Mercedes are expected to occupy the first row off the starting line. Will this remain till the end of the race? I doubt so. Race predictions have been updated after the qualifying.

Lewis Hamilton started first and finished first in this race last year. So, he might well do so again in 2017. Vettel’s right rear tire exploded out of nowhere; hope he has more luck this time. Let’s see how the Red Bulls will do in their home race and after a rather unexpected win by Daniel Ricciardo last week in Baku.

  1. Pretty interesting. Have no idea why ferrari and red bull pilots will be splitted, I would say that in qualification will be 2 Mercs (Hamilton, Bottas), 2 Ferraris (Vettel, Raikkonen) and 2 Red Bulls (verstappen Ricciardo). It’s a speed track so merces shouild be the fastest.

    1. Well let’s see. HAM got a 5-place grid penalty so he’ll start 5th or below. I would say VET, BOT, RIC, RAI, HAM.
