Austrian Grand Prix 2017 – Round 9 of 20 – Grand Prix Weekend Thread

Formula arrives in Austria as part of the fast paced set of mid-summer races. With long straights, the track is fast and engine performance is key to success. Can Hamilton repeat his win from last year? The press is eager to push forward poor relations between Hamilton and Vettel left over from the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Will that be a factor in this race? Can McLaren/Honda show new form with an upgraded engine package for both drivers?

I didn't watch any video of it, but the transcript of Thursday's press conference was painful. Both Vettel and Hamilton (particularly Vettel) didn't want to dwell on the incident from last race, but the press was having none of it and pressed hard.

thanks for the intro Richard.

the transcript makes it seem worse then it was. for sure there were a lot of idiotic and repetitive questions but from the video i thought LH and SV in particular handled it well and with some good humour which didnt really translate well on the transcript.

Poor old Jolyon, only 7 laps in fp2 when the bulk of the others were up in the 40's, he is properly out of luck this year isn't he.

He's out of something!

Hamilton hit with a 5 spot penal.

New Honda seems better on an outright power circuit.

Sainz kicking up a stink at Red Bull. Better to explain more in sill season thread.

I'm looking forward to this. With the dust from Baku, not really settled, taking in past results and current practice sessions, Lulu Mercedes have the upper hand.

It all happened in the last minute of Q3, with Grosjean stopping on the middle of the track, ruining chances of anyone's trying to get that last quick lap in and Vertappen going off into the gravel but saving the car.

Congrats to Bottas on his second pole. Lewis seemed to have trouble getting the car to do what he wanted. It looked like he was under steering into the corners and losing grip. Nevertheless, he qualified third, however with the grid penalty he starts 8th. So much for me saying Lewis and Mercedes have the upper hand.

You could say Grosjean did it on purpose to hang on to his position. Like some German type person did a bunch of years ago. I wouldn't put it past him in any case.

Almost a clean start as Verstappen goes off at turn 1. Looks like he got hit from behind.

Bottas is being investigated for a jump start.

Kvyat was a bit of an idiot at the start. Effectively taking out Max at their home race can't sit well at Red Bull.

Congrats to Bottas, kept it together from start to finish. A good drive from Ricciardo and Vettel extends his lead in the championship with second. Otherwise a pretty dull race.

Love this track, one of the oldies but goodies, not an overtaking paradise, but always deliver solid shows.

Seen the "drivers after the race" videos, read the press realeses, but not one word of appology from Kvyat...and I think what he did was really, really bad driving, not just bad F1 driving, it was bad driving for a drunken Xbox party. 3 penalty points for brushing rubber for Vettel, and only two for someone who plays bowling with 2 other cars at the start like that...odd.
