After a solid start, Nico was forced to retire from P9 on the eleventh tour due to a suspected turbo failure. Carlos was quick off the line too, but repeated tyre blistering arrested his potential, meaning an eventual P12 finish. Today’s result was the team’s worst since last year’s Mexican Grand Prix, however it remains in fourth place in the Constructors’ Championship.
Hot off the heels of France, we head to Austria for round nine of the Formula One World Championship. The team takes to the Red Bull Ring for the second leg of F1’s first ever triple-header, before returning to the UK for the team’s home race in Silverstone. Located high in the hills, the Austrian circuit is a popular and familiar track amongst our drivers, including Robert Kubica, who returns to FP1 action this weekend.
