PSF1 heads to the hilly region of Spielberg for the 3rd Austrian Grand Prix. Arguably the easiest track on the calendar, the small but loved Austrian tracked provides some fantastic overtaking opportunities into turns 2 and 3, and 1 for those who are feeling brave. Expect plenty of action this weekend, with the track being so small, lap times will be close, and the slipstream around Austria is super effective.
Qualifying for all three tiers is clear, and the race is looking much the same, at the time of writing. The drivers will want to make the most of the sunny weather as we head towards winter, PSF1 could see some more adverse weather conditions.
Lego’s lead at the top is increasingly getting smaller, which will certainly be playing in the back of his mind, but a win from Lego this weekend will definitely boost his championship challenge. With only two races ever done at Austria, it’s anyone’s guess who will come out on top, but with Cliffy and Louis looking strong, it certainly won’t be easy for any of the drivers.
