    2017 Austrian Grands Prix

    Boss cops 5 place grid drop for changing gearbox. It could be damage limitation for him. A decent chance for rain in quali, and a remote one for the race. I was thinking Lewis should do his best time in q2 on SS, however if rain washes rubber off track the US will have a distinct advantage. If it stays dry I do like the SS, US, strategy. It could be an interesting race with Fred getting his first podium in years It could happen

    Wlliies gets punked in q1, Both Haas and McLaren go through, with Fred having to revert to the spec 2 PU.

    Rogro may finally be on top of his brake problems p7 after q2,. Too bad about Magnussen , suspension failure kept him from competing in q2!

    Lol. It was Valsecci. He has been pretty decent in commenting on F2 etc. but he should have known better than to try and initiate some kind of fabricated moment.
    Have we seen a request ofr handshakes at any other time in the post quali interviews of recent?
    yup. A fail.
    you can't argue with results

    It actually made me cringe. That was a typical paparazzi moment and I glad they ignored him.

    Should be interesting tomorrow with Lewis opting for SS and everybody else up front on US. Didn't exactly seem to hurt Lewis' lap times either.

    Yes but pushing those tires to pass will destroy them. If he can jump a few cars at the start maybe he can conserve them to make the strategy work I hope he can, and anything can happen, but I think he will at best finish two places behind fettel, that would be major damage limitation. Boss' luck seems to be at a low ebb. I hope I'm wrong, and fortune smiles on him.
