Post-Race Statistics of the 2014 Austrian GP

An amazing return of the Austrian GP! A new man on the podium, a non-Mercedes pole and a front row lock out not seen since 2003.

For the first time this season Mercedes didn’t take pole position, mostly because of their own mistakes, though Williams took advantage, taking both positions on the front row for the first time since the 2003 German GP and their first pole at Austria since 1997. Williams held off the fighting Mercedes for a while, but lost out after the first round of stops, leaving Mercedes to walk away.

Rosberg took his sixth win and third of the season, Hamilton was just behind in second for his 60th podium finish and then the young Finn Valtteri Bottas finished on the podium for the first time in F1. Sergio Perez took the fastest lap, his third and the fifth for Mexican drivers.

Despite looking quick all season it’s only the first Williams podium of the season and only their second since 2009. There were just three retirements at the Red Bull Ring, but all of them were from Red Bull cars, Daniel Ricciardo was their only finisher and was down in eighth place after qualifying fifth.


Quite a few changes after the Austrian GP, Bottas and Massa both move up places and towards the back Maldonado is no longer last, moving from 22nd to 19th. This also means that Williams have moved up to fifth in the Constructors’ Championship, ahead of fellow British team McLaren.


Mercedes have increased their already huge gap again, Rosberg has almost twice the points of Ricciardo in third. Further down in the table the points are still very close, a good result can easily move you up several places and a bad result down.
