Much like the current case with Ferrari, Fernando Alonso seemed to be the only thing any of us had going for us this week. With every staffer picking Hamilton for the win in Austria, the second straight race that we’ve all done so, we all once again came away with a goose egg in the win column. In fact, Austria, for all it’s beauty and fine racing, did very little good for anyone at F1B this week. Todd, Paul, Tony and J.P all picked up a welcome but still somewhat paltry two points for Fred’s 5th place, while Jake took one lone tic for Perez in 6th.
The Top Three widened their gap over the rest of the pack ever so slightly and Paul was able to move out of a tie for 8th into a tie for 7th, but that was really all of the movement throughout the field. The racing was good as F1 returned to that place where the hills are alive, but hopefully Great Britain will bring a bit more excitement to the F1B Staff Championship.
