Sergio, Felipe is Faster than You!

Otay, could have gone for one of the multitudes 'O cheesy plays upon Thee Hills 'O Salzburg are filled with thy Sounds of Mercedes.. Or the sounds of Williams, etc, since after all we're back in Austria for the first time in 11yrs with the scenic Alps in the background.

And still not quite sure where Felipe Massa pulled that Flyer of a lap out from, as the affable Brazilian upstaged his younger team-mate Valtteri Bottas, who apparently made a mistake on his final Q3 Qualie' run, enabling Massa to score his first Pole position since Brazil, 2008; Aye Karumba! As the TV Pundits pointed out it had been 94-races (or is it Caps?) since he last was P1.

'Ol Hobbo (David Hobbs) also mentioned that it had been ten years since Team 'Willy, nee Williams Grand Prix; Err Williams Martini Racing had locked out the front row of a Grand Prix, last occurring in Germany, nearly 11yrs ago in Hockenheim on august 3rd,2003 when Pole sitter Juan Pablo Montoya won the race whilst his team-mate, the great Ralfanzo', nee Michael's famous brother Ralf Schumacher retired his Williams-BMW after starting alongside 'Monty.

Thus, the fairytale ending to this weekend's return to Spielberg, would see Massa being victorious with Bottas dually coming home second ahead of 'Brittany. (Nico Rosberg) Although I don't expect the race's finish to mirror today's qualifying, which thankfully somebody other than a Mercedes claimed Pole...
