    Discussion topic for all your practice, qualification and race comments of the Austrian F1 Grand Prix.
     
  2. I guss even Nascar drives faster and better on rain now then F1 does. Like in practice 3 now, it looks like a amataur racing series that normally race in Bahrain and other places where it never rains...

    They talk about need more overtaking, need refuelling etc etc. No, what they need is cars and/or tires that can drive in rain...
     
  3. Expect red flag if it rains on Sunday. :p

    To be honest, I was suprised there were no red flags because of rain (I saw there was one due to Alonso's mechanical issue, but not due to rain as far as I can see, I only jumped into practice near the end)
    And, I really hope it rains during the entire weekend. These drivers seems like they forgot how to really drive, everyone sliding around in the rain like "amateurs" as Martin said.
    Plus, Hamilton has no wet experience at Austria (as he didn't come out) so I hope for a different driver on pole like last year. :D
     
  5. If it rains in the race, then it will be safety car, then red flag, then they drive 1-2laps on intermediate tires before they change to slicks...

    yeah but no rain-related red flags in practice makes me feel optimistic :D

    So...we need a podium jump for this race if someone wins! Hamilton hasn't jumped since 2007, Rosberg never jumped but Vettel should deserve doing another jump.

    yeah! Alonso for pole position!

    If you get a Quali Place, you can get a Race Pace

    It would still be good to see Alonso in the top 10 for qualifying even with the penalty, as we would see the car finally has pace :)

    With the grid penalty for new engine and gearbox crap, I don't like that kind of grid penalty...If it wasn't like that, the grid penalty would only be applied to incidents.
