Fernando replacing Checo at RB just can't ever happen. Literally nothing that amazing could happen in my lifetime.

It's simple my friend, Domi and his mate have been given special wolfy dark round sunglasses guaranteed to be 100% dark, the two ex Ferrari techs coming in September will then do what exactly to the Merc PU..

The honey badger could be driving car 11 as Checo is down with a serious ailment as yet not known what exactly.
Max will have to adjust to that big teethy smile if Danny is driving at the weekend

I should think so, Marko and Horner would soon crack a whip if he didn't keep up a training programme.

So for people who have forgotten:
The Austrian GP has a sprint race.
In the current sprint race setup, this means that qualifying for the main race is today, at 17.00 local time. Tomorrow, the qualifying for the sprint race (called sprint shootout) is at 12.00 local time and the sprint race itself is at 16.30 local time.

So the result of the sprint race is not the order of the starting grid of the main race anymore.

So quite a busy weekend for the drivers, with just 1 practice session, starting at 13:30 local time, so in just over half an hour.

I can imagine that for the drivers/teams this gives very little time for setting up the car and very little room for error.
A lot of drivers are no fan of this format.

Checo has recovered from his illness and is taking part in FP1 which is seing Max on hards and the quickest time a lottery between Max, ALO and HAM.

Max came in for a small wing fix as something was hanging off from an end plate and both Ferrari's are at the near back but probably gathering data. Ex RB man Albon is doing well in the Williams just behind Checo's time.

Max comes out quickest in the last seconds shrugging off both Ferrari's who suddenly came alive, hammy and Checo squabbling for 4th and 5th.
