2017 Austrian GP Post-Race Stats

While the Austrian GP yesterday wasn’t the best race around (particularly after the completely bonkers Azerbaijan GP two weeks prior) it was a good race and went right down to the final lap.

Hamilton got off to a bad start, taking a gearbox penalty, confirming he would not take pole and would not be able to match Schumacher’s pole record at his home GP. But while Hamilton couldn’t take pole because of the penalty (and then only qualified in third), Bottas stepped up, taking pole and leading all but two laps of the race. Valtteri Bottas won the race by just six tenths of a second over Sebastian Vettel.

Daniel Ricciardo took third place home, just six seconds off the lead with Hamilton 1.4 seconds behind him, though it was much closer in the laps before. While not a great race for Hamilton due to his grid drop he did take the fastest lap of the race, setting a new lap record for the Red Bull Ring in the process.

The Williams duo of Felipe Massa and Lance Stroll had an awful qualifying and were both out of Q1, but they had a fantastic start amidst the chaos caused by Daniil Kvyat and were both running in the points by lap five. Max Verstappen’s horrific luck continued in Austria, having now retired in five races so far this season.

Not a single change at all in the Constructors’ Championship, so nothing to say here at all!

Only a handful of changes, Perez moved up ahead of Verstappen, Stroll above Hulkenberg and Grosjean ahead of his teammate Magnussen. You may also notice I’ve now changed the colours to match those used on the FIA lap charts, should be easier to identify drivers/teams now, though I’m not sure why they decided to use green for Williams and grey for McLaren.
