2020 F1 Styrian GP practice results, what if qualifying is cancelled?

Max Verstappen was fastest in Free Practice 2 for the Styrian Grand Prix, round two of the Formula 1 World Championship, and will start from pole position on Sunday if FP3 and qualifying is rained-out tomorrow.

2020 F1 Styrian GP practice results, what if qualifying is cancelled?

Following a delayed start, and a red flag for Daniel Ricciardo crashing his Renault without setting a laptime, Red Bull's Verstappen topped the timesheet with a lap of 1m03.660s, 0.043s faster than Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) and two tenths ahead of Sergio Perez (Racing Point).

What's the weather forecast for qualifying at the Red Bull Ring?

Heavy rain and storms are predicted for Saturday in Spielberg. This could cause either the postponement or cancellation of both Saturday's Free Practice 3 and qualifying sessions.

What happens if rain cancels qualifying?

If qualifying is postponed due to the weather, qualifying will take place on Sunday morning. If the weather is still not suitable on Sunday morning, drivers' fastest times in Free Practice 2 will be used to set the grid. This would see Verstappen starting from pole, from Bottas and Perez.

How Red Bull endured its second car crash in two weeks

OPINION: Red Bull was justified to be upset that Lewis Hamilton survived his British GP clash with Max Verstappen and went on to win. But its attempts to lobby the FIA to reconsider the severity of Hamilton's in-race penalty were always likely to backfire, and have only succeeded in creating a PR disaster that will distract from its on-track efforts
