After returning to Austria following an 11-year absence last season, Formula 1 heads back to the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg this weekend for the first of a five consecutive races in Europe.

Mercedes teammates Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg once again appear set to fight for top honors at the front of the grid, but Ferrari has displayed an impressive pace during practice and could yet be in the running for pole position on Saturday.

After rain fell towards the end of FP3, conditions in Austria have not improved a great deal, suggesting that we could be poised for a wet qualifying session.

The biggest talking point of the weekend so far has been the reliability – or lack of it – displayed by McLaren, who looks set to enter the race with an astonishing 50 places worth of grid penalties.

Williams is also thought to be getting in the mix at the front, 12 months on from its shock pole position in Austria, whilst Toro Rosso displayed a very impressive wet-weather pace towards the end of FP3.

All of this sets the stage for a quite thrilling qualifying session from the Red Bull Ring, so make sure that you don’t miss as second of the action.
