Lewis Hamilton broke the official race lap record for the Red Bull Ring during the Austrian Grand Prix by almost a full second.

He was one of six drivers to lap under the old record of 1’08.337, set by Michael Schumacher during the 2003 grand prix.

Hamilton set a new mark with a lap of 1’07.411 on the ante-penultimate lap of the race, just before mounting his attempt to pass Daniel Ricciardo for second place. The Red Bull driver set the second-fastest lap of the race at the same time, rounding the track just 0.031s slower than Hamilton.

Remarkably both Ferrari drivers also lapped within a tenth of a second of Hamilton’s time at this stage in the race. Eventual winner Valtteri Bottas, who had to cope with a blistering rear tyre, did his best time with 20 laps to go. The other driver to beat the former record was Daniil Kvyat.

  1. I’m correct in saying then, this is the first time an official lap record from the 00’s has been beaten right?

    1. @bezza695 As far as I’m aware, yes. To my knowledge, this is the first time that an official lap record set during the refuelling era has been beaten since the ban of in-race refuelling.

    2. No. In Monaco Perez did it.

  2. It is insignificant because the previous record was set in 2003. The peak was 2004 and in some tracks 2005 and those cars were a good deal faster than those of 2003.

  3. Just curious – did these tyres have two peaks? most seem to have drop in pace and then improving towards the end.
    May be its just me telling porkies

  4. Is Vandoorne’s time a fluke or is it real improvement? I know he was pushing to catch Palmer after his penalty but it might be that the lap is short and the time loss is not that high.
