Formula 1 Fans of the Cayman Islands are set for an exciting Austrian Grand Prix this weekend.
The race in Spielberg on Sunday will be screened from 9 a.m. at Pirate’s Den Pub, Galleria Plaza and apart from the Red Bull drivers wanting to do well again after finishing first and third two weeks ago at the Montreal GP, they are racing at the Red Bull Ring.
Sebastian Vettel was told to improve his performances by his Red Bull team after a troubled start to the season.
Helmut Marko, Red Bull’s motorsport adviser, told the four-time champion after April’s Chinese Grand Prix to adapt his driving and stop complaining about the car and new rules.
In Canada, Vettel out-qualified teammate Daniel Ricciardo for the first time since the second race of the year in Malaysia, although the Australian went on to win the race after passing his German team-mate during a pit-stop period and Vettel finished third.
Nico Rosberg was second for Mercedes. Rosberg is maintaining the unseemly rivalry with team-mate Lewis Hamilton. Rosberg said he believes he now has the psychological edge over Hamilton after opening up a 22-point lead in the title race.
Britain’s Hamilton, the 2008 world champion, won four races in a row to take the championship lead off Rosberg.
However, his team-mate reclaimed the advantage with victory in Monaco and second in Canada as Hamilton retired.
It all augurs well for the delayed TV screening at PD’s.
The Pines Retirement home is the recipient of all proceeds for this one.
A minimum $2 donation is required for anyone attending but they also get entered into the free prize draw after the race which always has cool items.
This time the best items on offer is an array of Formula 1 gear which two club members brought back from the Montreal race.
These items will be auctioned with the proceeds going towards the chosen charities.
