[no spoilers] Formula One enjoyed a wet 'n' wild qualifying for the Styrian GP which took place in soaking conditions on the Red Bull Ring. On such a short track, the margin between the pole sitter and second on the grid was staggering. Alex Kalinauckas is joined by Luke Smith to take you through the exceptional performances and more major disappointments from those who couldn't make it out of Q1 an Q2.
Luke Smith and Jake Boxall-Legge take you through FP1 and FP2 with a focus on the tech updates various teams added to their cars for this weekend. Ferrari brought forward a new aero package scheduled for Hungary but put it on their car today. We discuss the elephant-sized lack of horsepower in the room, and that's all six Ferrari powered teams being seriously down on power. What is happening and how can they fix it?
An Jonathan Noble continues to report from inside the track in Austria, he joins Alex Kalinauckas to look ahead to this weekend and the news that Mercedes seem to have a weak spot to be exploited by their rivals. Also, Leclarc and Bottas flew home between the races which has frustrated those who feel they undermined F1 organisers who are keeping everyone in a social bubble. This weekend 10,000 COVID tests will have been carried out, with zero confirmed cases, and Formula 1 will want to prove to various government that they can stage an event safely. Plus we have the inside story on what we saw at the Fernando Alonso press event.
As we're between back-to-back weekends racing in Austria, we wanted to catch up with local legend Christian Klien. Although he never raced at his home GP during his time in F1, with stints for Jaguar, HRT and Red Bull Racing, he has fond memories of racing at the A1 Ring. Alex Kalinauckas and James Newbold ask why his home circuit always delivers so much action. Plus we talk about the standout races in his career so far.
