Three Key Pointers
- Hooking up a clean lap will be key in qualifying with all three sectors set to suit different teams.
- Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel needs a clean weekend here if he is to rediscover his best form, particularly around a track that he has won four times in the past.
- After showing progress in Hungary, Williams should be competitive around this track given its similar characteristics to that of the Hungaroring, and any Safety Cars could help them in the race.
