Last Season's Results:
1st: El_Majacko
2nd: Maznat87
3rd: kartdude45
Pole: Maznat87 (1.06.042)
FL: HONESTCROOKK (1.08.251)

1. After 8 rounds of the campaign, no-one has managed to back up a Season 9 victory, with a Season 10 win at the same circuit thus far. Might Jacko manage that this round, and if not, who might be first if any to achieve back-to-back wins at one track?
2. Pole position has only won twice this season, in Australia and Azerbaijan, but the latter wasn't as straightforward as it sounds. Is pole not as important as it seems?
3.
Last week Baku churned out an all time classic with 5 different race leaders (6 if you count Maz' nose in front into some braking zones). Will the Redbullring offer a similarly hotly contested event?
4. Wayneo backed up his stunning last to 3rd drive in Canada with a second position finish from a low grid position in Azerbaijan. Will he make it a hat-trick of podiums or biggest mover awards in Austria?

Well, I've already failed in the pursuit of a second victory at the same track as last season twice with second place finishes in Bahrain and Monaco. However, I've converted the tracks I finished second in last season, into first this time around. If that pattern continues I'll probably finish runner-up here in Austria. Realistically I'll have better shots at backing up previous wins at stronger tracks such as Hungary of Malaysia. dani could even win back-to-back Austin races later in the season.

Its a strange statistic. More wins have come from 2nd on the grid with a couple from the second row too. Certainly the leader after the first lap has a better probability looking back on our season.

We'd be hard pressed to top that chaos. Probably not.

On current form, you'd be hard pressed to bet against him!

Q: 3rd
Once again, PB would've done it. Even any of the pre-race practices, but no, I had OP to try and get in the lobby and about 7000 distraction of notifications. Thanks.

R: 5th
Made a good start, but was forced off by stewart's divebomb at T1, which also gave me an illegal overtake that I couldn't give back. Race already screwed I went deep at T2 and lost the lead to Maz. I battled Pure for a while until Jeff said dries were ready. He was wrong. I fell back but was confident 3rd was still on the cards when everyone else pit, but no, I lost the rear and smashed my wing off. Consigned to 6th, I fought to catch Wayneo while staying ahead of Maz who was about to give me blue flags. 5th was all I could manage.
