2015 Austrian Grand Prix – Mercedes Team inside line

Paddy Lowe, Executive Director (Technical): “Spielberg is a great circuit – fast and flowing with relatively few corners but some spectacular elevation changes. Last year was, of course, the first Austrian Grand Prix for many years and the crowds were fantastic, creating a really good atmosphere. On track, however, we didn’t have our best performance of the season there last time out – despite coming away with a one-two finish. It was a difficult result to achieve – requiring some tight strategy calls to beat the Williams cars. Like Montreal, it’s a circuit where the Power Unit will come to the fore. Pirelli have also nominated the soft and supersoft compounds for the third consecutive race which, combined with a very smooth track surface, will create some challenges. After two quite unique circuits in Monaco and Canada, it will be interesting to see how the field stands at a more ‘normal’ venue.”.
