A time for nostalgia
Red Bull did an amazing job getting a bunch of old cars together and filling the cockpits with drivers of a similar vintage. Niki Lauda was in his Ferrari 312T2 and it was great to see him out on track for a few laps before the race alongside other old Austrian drivers, including Gerhard Berger and Helmut Marko. It was a great spectacle and they went out on Saturday night and again on Sunday before the race. Berger was in Jochen Rindt’s beautiful Lotus 49 but struggled to get out of the narrow cockpit opening when he stopped on the grid! It was great to see them all back in their overalls, even if they were a bit tighter than in the old days! I think having the classic cars at grands prix is great because the fans love them and they provide that raw sound that is missing this year.

A popular pole
This was quite special, but when we were waiting in parc ferme we didn’t know Felipe Massa had secured pole position so it was quite a surprise when he arrived and started celebrating. They were quick all weekend and it was a special thing to see them take the front row. He was looking right at me in this photo and pumping his fists, so it really gets the across the raw emotion of his first pole since Brazil 2008. People have said that Pat Symonds has created a good vibe in the team on the technical side and in Austria we really saw that start to pay off.

One for the fans
This photo just shows you the support of the fans as early as Thursday. They are being led by the band and as they went into the pit lane it got a lot narrower and there was nearly a scene from a comedy film as they all got squashed together and nearly fell over themselves. But there was amazing support from all the fans and even on Sunday morning I thought I’d got in early and the stands were already chock-a-block. It was great to see and shows how much support there is from fans in Europe. I think we’ll see it in Silverstone as well as there is a pit walk there this year for the first time.
