F1 2017 R9: Austria Reactions

Post by piboye » Sun Jul 09, 2017 7:40 pm

What did you guys think of this race?  Bottas has another win, think he will beat Hamilton this year?  What were your impressions of the start (Bottas quick off the line and Kvyat's crash)?  Any other great drives you want to mention?  (I'm really happy that Grosjean finished best of the rest after the top three teams in 6th).

Bottas start was limit but legit!
Kvyatt just sucks...

I don't think Bottas will beat Hamilton this season. I still think Hamilton will catch up Vettel and win the WDC.

I just love it when Hamilton doesn't get to stand on the podium (poor little feller). Bottas most definitely deserved the win, but it would have been very interesting if there were about 2 to 3 more laps. Would Vettel have caught up with, and passed Bottas?

With how difficult it is to pass with these cars, I think that Vettel would have caught Bottas, but would not have been able to pass (like Hamilton couldn't pass Ricciardo).

Very true, but Austria has two DRS zones and the long straight going up the hill that can be used quite efficiently if in the hands of the right driver.  I'm not for Vettel at all, but I still think it would have been interesting/really fun to watch:)

It was fun to watch already! I wouldn't complain against having more.
