20 minutes to go

Anyone know if it's dry?  Saw a forecast yesterday that reckoned it was going to be a showery FP1

 

edit:  There are cloudy skies but it's dry for the moment!

It looks dry (watching Austrian TV) but the sky is clouded.

Did they change the last corner a bit?

What a beautiful track!

That pitlane entry looks like trouble. Also, after a week of watching football, the obnoxious camera angles with regards to the trackside advertising is quite a rude reawakening.

The track is beautiful :love:, and the elevation changes so steep! :up:

 

Already problems for Rosberg and Kimi by the sound of things

(that was very close between Lewis and Nico)

They really should've foregone the 30min tyre rule and just gave them 2 sets.

Both Raikkonen and Rosberg's issues obviously not too serious as both back out on track.

What's up with the director? Cars out on track and he keeps cutting to other things.

Rosberg's lap is 3.4s slower than the 2003 pole time. I'm actually impressed, by Q3 they might be sub-70s or 69s (Dudes!).

Definitely. They'll go much faster on the softs yet. Track evo, driver confidence, quali engine modes, super softs... I think they'll threaten 2003.

Looks like having a Mercedes engine is a good idea round here. Not unexpected as it is a power circuit and one of the fastest on the calendar. Wonder what Ferrari put in Alonso's car though.

Hmm Not sure about that. 3.4s is nearly 5% of a 71s lap. In Spain they only only went 2s quicker form FP1 to Q3, that's only a 2.4% improvement. This doesn't take track dirtiness and tyres into account I know. My prediction is they'll be 2.1s off it, about a 70 flat in Q3.

 

I'd be pleasantly impressed if they do beat 2003 times though!

BEN ANDERSON: You can hear everyone struggling with wheelspin out of Turn 1 except the Mercedes, and Alonso when he gets it right. #F1

 Hmmm Vettel slower in FP1 that Ricci ...   safe to say that all the "he'll be faster when he likes the car"  talk is about to disappear .......

Vettel is being dominated by his rookie teammate.

I can only assume he means how fast they are considering what we have become familiar with.

Vettel infront of Ricciardo in FP2 and who says that RB10 is liked by Vettel?

Eh? Sky posted pictures on FB where they showed how this track still has gravel run traps, and now all I see is bunch of tarmac run off with adverts. :(

Is the pecking order any different at all to Canada?  Maybe RB a bit worse, but other than that all looks very similar
