The qualifying matches for the upcoming races in Austria are over. And here we are with the best of stats. The results are statistically significant. And it matters for the person capturing the poles. And with these events, Bottas is in the club of Niki Lauda, Rene Arnoux, and Nelson Piquet as a three-time Austrian pole winner. Also, Mercedes repeated the Silver Arrows coming 1 and 2 – similar to their debut in the 1954 France.
The match was also an exciting one, as Bottas defeats his teammate Lewis Hamilton to pole by 0.012s. This is yet another historical moment of the smallest pole margin in Austrian GP History. There is also some content performance from Alex Albon. And he shall start from the same fifth position for the third race in a row.
Things were slower for Charles Leclerc. He was in the one who got him the pole in 2019, but this time, it got him seventh. This time, Williams came a long way. In 2019, they never went beyond Q1, but this time, they went for Q2. Sadly, they miss by 0.073s. Another poor performance with the Alfa Romeo. They were no better than in 2019. And both their cars went off from Q1 itself.
