2015 Austrian GP Pre-Race Stats

F1 returns to the Red Bull Ring for the Austrian GP, Red Bull will be hoping they do better than they did last year at their home track.

Last year I think I cursed Mercedes by mentioning they had every pole position so far in my pre-race stats, I may as well say the same thing now and hope we have a more interesting qualifying and a new pole sitter. One lap of the Red Bull Ring is 4.326km and a race distance after 71 laps of 307.146km, putting it in the exact middle of race distances in 2015. The win from pole percentage at the track is relatively low, just 7 wins from pole in 26 races, just 26.92%, the second lowest on the calendar.

20 drivers have won the Austrian GP at the Red Bull Ring/A1-Ring/Österreichring and one of very few where Michael Schumacher doesn’t have the most wins, Alain Prost does with three. For the last few races I’ve been saying that Felipe Massa could get to 1000 points, but now that he’s on 997 points he SHOULD finally reach 1000, and potentially his 40th podium as Williams should be good in Austria with a low drag setup.

The Silly Stats

The shape of Austria looks somewhat similar to a chicken drumstick, and you could cover the track with around 14,420,000 of them, enough for every person in Austria to have a drumstick and still have six million drumsticks left over.

The Last Race

Trying something new by putting the stats/results from the previous race here, let me know what you think or if you have any other ideas to put in my pre-race stats.
