2014 Austrian Grand Prix

A warm welcome from the Austrian fans and a podium finish for one of F1′s best-loved teams gave the Austrian Grand Prix a feel-good factor.

Here’s the reaction to the race on Twitter.

Race

A power unit problem meant Sebastian Vettel dropped to the back of the field in the early stages of the race – not for the first time this year.

A quick stop by the Williams pit crew, the fastest of the day, allowed Valtteri Bottas to rejoin the race ahead of Lewis Hamilton and his team mate.

After a big shunt in Canada, Felipe Massa and Sergio Perez did not collide this time around.

As well as Vettel, both Toro Rossos failed to finish the race.

    Yeah, I really didn’t get what the whole ‘congratulations’ message was about. What a waste of time, and how long had they been planning that one to get the camera and message to appear in the right place and as though it is flat on the track. Didn’t work very well either.

    Was Fernando’s ‘Strategy Meeting’ with Mark on the subject of ’101 ways to curse Seb’s car’?

    Bernie’s CGI message is probably the most cringe-worthy thing I have seen in my 18 years of watching F1.
