Formula 1 returns to Europe this week with the Austrian Grand Prix, back for another year after a welcome return on the calendar in 2014.
As ever, the NBC Sports Group original digital series “Paddock Pass” is up and running, and split into two parts.
In part one, Will Buxton speaks with Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg, who after winning at Le Mans, has become one of the biggest stories leading into the Austrian GP. Buxton fears he won’t stay in F1 if he doesn’t get picked up by a larger team.
In part two, Buxton talks with Williams driver Valtteri Bottas about the team’s upgrades and also chats with Nico Rosberg about the keys to closing the gap on Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton.
Full TV and NBC Sports Live Extra times for the race, which airs Sunday at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN, are linked here.
