¡Very good day! We are here to discuss the first free practice sessions of the GP of Austria. In less than half now starts the action in Spielberg.09:30

Nico Rosberg is the king of the Red Bull Ring. The German rider has been the winner of the two editions of the GP of Austria held since the return to the calendar of this track and lands on Spielberg with the intention of extending his streak after strengthening his lead at the front of the Formula 1 World championship in Baku. In front, without the possibility of more faults after year spot, Lewis Hamilton is in need of cut points to your partner, box. The duel is more than served on a track where Ferrari and Red Bull may pose a certain threat.

Also Williams has had a good performance on this track, although it is more than likely that the FW38 have to fight for to become hollow in the middle part of the grill. A battle that will be more matched than at other tracks because the configuration of the path of Spielberg makes the differences are very small and every tenth you can assume several positions lost in qualifying. Every mistake is paid dearly, every thousandth is worth a world, and it is for this reason that the work during the free will be critical. For this reason, I invite you to live the free practice of the GP of Austria with the direct of is.
