2014 Austrian Grand Prix

Hello F1 Fans, 

   After a fantastic racing weekend in Canada, F1 circus heads to Austria’s Red Bull Ring, previously A1 Ring and before that, Osterreichring, for the first time since 2003 for the eighth round of the F1 World Championship. With only 8 corners, long straights, dramatic elevation changes and super-fast sweeping curves and a track length of 2.688 miles, the Red Bull Ring is likely to be the shortest lap of the year. Nearly 60 per cent of the lap is expected to be spent on full throttle, and there's lots of acceleration from slow-speed corners there by putting high demand on the turbo. The four long straights will aid cooling, and high top speeds will once again be crucial to success. Of the current drivers on the grid only Jenson Button, Felipe Massa, Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen have driven at the circuit in the past. 

STANDINGS - Daniel Ricciardo's first Grand Prix win in Montreal thrusts him third the Drivers’ championship while Lewis Hamilton's retirement in Montreal gave Nico Rosberg a good cushion for the championship lead. The standings after the Canadian Grand Prix we have Nico Rosberg leads the Drivers’ championship with 140 points, Lewis Hamilton in second with 118 points and Daniel Ricciardo in third with 79 points. In the Constructors’ battle Mercedes is sitting at the top with a commanding lead of 258 points with Red Bull in 2nd trailing by 119 points and Ferrari in 3rd trailing further by 52 points.

TYRE ALLOCATION - Pirelli will bring the yellow-marked soft and red-banded soft to Austria meaning the two softest tyres in their range have been used for three successive grands prix. Pirelli is predicting two pit stops based on simulation data. The brand new P Zero magazine from Pirelli has lots more cool information on Austrian GP:  http://magazine.pzero.com

DRS ZONES - FIA has announced two DRS zones for the Austrian GP. The first DRS zone is on the Start - Finish straight and the second one between the Remus and Schlossgold corners of the Red Bull Ring circuit.

Can Lewis Hamilton bounce back with a win in Austria after his latest DNF? Can Red Bull follow-up with their win in Montreal with another one in their home race? Will this be the race where McLaren or Ferrari makes that big step in performance? If you're in the New York City area and looking for some great racing action with other F1 fans, be sure to join us for the Austrian Grand Prix to see who will take the checkered flag. Race will start at 08:00AM EDT with the pre-race starting at 07:30AM EDT. It's going to be another exciting race. 

We hope to see you all!
