Formula 1: Bottas refused to drink champagne out of a Shoe

For a show at the Grand Prix of Austria today answered Daniil Kvyat, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton.

Saturday qualification has promised at least an interesting start of Sunday’s race. In the final minutes of its third segment, Max Verstappen (Red Bull) made a mistake, flew over the track, and the judges hung out yellow flags. Therefore, to complete their final attempts had several drivers, first and foremost, Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes). The pole position went to his team-mate to Valtteri Bottas. Second place — Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari), Sam Hamilton remained third. However, to actually start the race he still had the eighth because of a gearbox replacement.

In the constructors ‘ championship, she ranked seventh on 9 points ahead of Renault and only 4 behind the Toro Rosso. Sorry, Kevin Magnussen was forced to go in the race due to technical problems.Very good results in the Grand Prix of Austria showed Roman Grosjean.

The first series of cars safely passed the first turn, but in the middle happened to clash. It began with the fact that the car Carlos Sainz (Toro Rosso) took me a while to start. Behind him Fernando Alonso (McLaren) and Daniil Kvyat (Toro Rosso) decided to go to his right, closer to the pit wall and the grass. And if the Spaniard immediately after overtaking shifted to the left, the Russians did it later. The right side of his Toro Rosso was on the dirty part of the track, and braking before entering the turn had active. And still this was not enough: Daniel crashed into the right side of the car, Alonso. The fact from the impact launched the car grazed another Red Bull max Verstappen, and all three went outside of the track.

However, if after the collision, Verstappen and Alonso gone, Kvyat drove to the pits for a replacement front wing, and then returned to the race. The judges gave him a penalty fare on the pit lane. This meant that for a good place to fight the Russians will not succeed, but before the finish he can get. And so it happened: in the Grand Prix of Austria Daniel took 16th place.

In the race Carlos Sainz (Toro Rosso) went down due to engine problems. At the Grand Prix of Austria, he attracted attention by his statements: at a press conference on Thursday, Carlos said that he didn’t want to stay in 2018 in the Toro Rosso, and aims to go to Red Bull. The head of the “older the bull” Christian Horner, and then the adviser Red Bull Helmut Marko in an interview in response reminded that the Spaniard has a contract, which clearly stipulates that the pilot must adhere to selected to a program. Then Sainz in conversations with journalists insistently repeated that his words on Thursday were misinterpreted.In the race Carlos Sainz (Toro Rosso) went down due to engine problems.

The main part of the race was quite smooth, no battles or events. Valtteri Bottas was able to keep the lead, behind him at a sufficient distance was kept Sebastian Vettel. Behind them in fifth position was arguing Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton. The Englishman several times tried to attack, but eventually stopped in the pits for a fresh set of tyres. Finn turned to the pit stop a few laps later and returned to the track behind Hamilton already.

In the last laps of the race order in the top five remained unchanged: Valtteri Bottas, Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Lewis Hamilton. But the gaps between them began to rapidly decrease, and the last two laps of the race were really exciting. Vettel to the checkered flag attacked Bottas, but still couldn’t get ahead, and behind them the third degree of heated debate Hamilton and Ricciardo — with the advantage in favor of the Aussie.

And as it has become in the last year, after the ceremony, Daniel Ricciardo put in your Shoe champagne. Knowing about this tradition, Bottas and Vettel hurried to hide behind the podium, and remaining on him, the interviewer and the ex-pilot of Formula 1 Martin Brandl was forced to drink from the offered “glass”. Perhaps at this point, all three regretted that Lewis Hamilton failed a decisive attack.

Daniel Ricciardo aggressively enforces the Australian tradition of drinking victory champagne out of the Shoe. Think the Europeans are still not ready to adopt it.Daniel Ricciardo aggressively enforces the Australian tradition of drinking victory champagne out of the Shoe.
