But only one Mercedes in the front row: Lewis Hamilton received a penalty afterwards and loses his second place on the starting grid for the Austria Grand Prix 2020 in Spielberg here in the live ticker! behind Valtteri Bottas. He only tackles the first race of the 2020 Formula 1 season from fifth place.
The reason for the relocation is that the sports commissioners have re-opened Hamilton's qualifying case - after Red Bull had asked the stewards to do so.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said according to 'Movistar': "With a new camera perspective, new evidence has emerged. We asked [the sports commissioners] to look at it."
The second hearing of Hamilton was therefore scheduled for 1:45 p.m., just under an hour and a half before the start of the race in Spielberg.
Red Bull also justified the objection with a precedent from Mexico in 2019, when Max Verstappen was punished in a similar situation. "Above all, you want consistency," says Horner. "Otherwise: What will you do next time you see a yellow flag?"
