F1 news 2020, Austrian Grand Prix, Ferrari, Vettel, Martin Brundle column, Mercedes, Hamilton

That was a very ‘old school’ race and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great wheel-to-wheel action (even a wheel falling off), lots of unpredictability and jeopardy, poor reliability with only 11 of the 20 starters seeing the chequered flag, and action and uncertainty all the way to the finish.

Helped along by real safety cars regrouping the pack rather than virtual ones, which only serve to put the race into a slightly confusing suspended animation with no-brainer ‘free’ pit stops.

While it’s a mere shadow of its former self from the ‘80s, and only containing 10 official corners of which, in the dry, an F1 car only really acknowledges seven of them, this Red Bull Ring has teeth. Mostly in the form of red and white kerbs which generate such a load and frequency as to dismantle the finest F1 cars and their systems.
