F1 Wednesday – Austrian GP 2016

F1 Wednesday

This is going to be a long post so I’ll just give you my highlights.

Qualifying – I didn’t watch qualifying but I heard that Jenson qualified in 5th but due to grid penalties he was starting 3rd! THIRD!!!! How on earth did he manage that in that crappy McLaren? Heard people say on Facebook “Did no-one else turn up?!” because no-one could believe he’d managed to get that car into 3rd!

Race – I didn’t get to watch the race other than the last two or three laps. So I got to watch THE crash that everyone’s been talking about. From what I saw it did look like Nico deliberately went into Hamilton which seems to be the thought of the stewards hence the 10 second post race penalty.

Then the surprising result (other than Jenson’s 5th place finish) was Verstappen’s 2nd place finish! I think that boy is going to be the next big thing.

I told you it wasn’t a long post!!

    Aww, Verstappen <3 I think he will be the next Schumacher, he is really amazing. I can't wait to see the race at Silverstone this weekend. x

    I think so too! He’s doing so well! Although I prefer Ricciardo (it’s the Australian thing!). Are you going to Silverstone or watching it at home? x

    Nico didn’t even attempt to take that corner. Did you see the flag at Silverstone today warning Rosberg about the upcoming corner… even Lewis spotted it from the drivers parade! 😀
