2014 Austria GP: Formula One F1 Starting Line-Up & Race Preview


By Mike Sulka

The 2014 Formula One F1 season has reached round eight - the Austrian Grand Prix GP at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria. The first Austrian Grand Prix was run in 1970 at the Osterreichring and was won by Jacky Ickx in a Ferrari 312B after starting third. In 1997, the Austrian Grand Prix moved to the A1-Ring after being refurbished and continued until 2003. One of the most famous moments was when Ferrari asked Rubens Barrichello to pull over and all Michael Schumacher to get the victory and the full points in 2002. It was so controversial, it led to a banning of team orders for a time.

Formula One returns to the track this season under the new name - Red Bull Ring. It is one of the shortest laps on the schedule at 4.326 km / nine corners and laps around 68 seconds. Michael Schumacher holds the lap record of 1:08.337. The race will be 71 laps.

While this layout is fast, with hard braking in the corners, the trend has been for the winner to start third or higher. Overall the winner has started from Pole three times in seven tries, while second has zero victories and third has won three times. Once was the race won from seventh - David Coulthard 2001.

Only four drivers in the field have competed at this track: Jenson Button (4 times, best finish fourth in 2003 for BAR Honda), Kimi Raikkonen (3 times, finished second 2003 for McLaren), Fernando Alonso (twice, best finish 15th for Minardi), Felipe Massa (once, best finish 19th racing for Sauber).

Williams driver Felipe Massa will start the Grand Prix from Pole after scoring an amazing Pole. His teammate Valtteri Bottas will also start on the front row, with Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) lining up third. Williams have been extremely fast on the option (supersoft) compound, while Mercedes have seemed to hold an advantage on the primary (soft) tyre.

We are going to pick Nico Rosberg to take victory. Although, Mercedes braking gremlins may limit Rosberg's ability to fight. We aren't picking Massa since he hasn't won since 2008 at the Brazilian Grand Prix, and Valtteri Bottas has never won. But keep an eye on Fernando Alonso who will start fourth.

Enjoy, the 2014 Austrian Grand Prix, it is setup to be quite the thriller!
