Brawn expects Sunday morning qualifying in Austria

Brawn expects Sunday morning qualifying in Austria

Formula 1 managing director motorsport Ross Brawn is confident qualifying for the Styrian Grand Prix will take place on Sunday morning if wet weather prevents the Saturday session from going ahead.

With F1 cancelling the final practice session at the Red Bull Ring due to heavy rain, it is looking increasingly unlikely qualifying will take place on Saturday..

"Austria is always a challenging circuit weather-wise," Brawn told Sky Sports F1.

"This is a big front coming through, moving slowly but predictably, so there's a chance maybe at the end of today we'll get some running, but certainly tomorrow looks fine."

Asked how the grid would be decided for Sunday's grand prix if Saturday running was cancelled, Brawn outlined how the Sunday schedule would be altered.

He added: "We'll have qualifying tomorrow. We've got a schedule tomorrow which means we only lose the F2 sprint race and one of the Porsche races, so we think tomorrow we can fit everything in.

"There'll be qualifying in the morning. If we can't do that, then the FP2 times become relevant, but I hope we don't need to do that and I think we'll have qualifying in the morning."
