Statically images doesn't work with google drive direct link images


So you can have a direct link to a file on Google Drive using the url https://drive.google.com/uc?id=<file_id>, ej: https://drive.google.com/uc?id=10F233849zmGJjwaIL5F_8Il01KDaf735.
And as expected it can be used to display images on websites just fine previous example link used in an img.

But if we try to use Statically with it we get a redirection to a Google error 400 page https://cdn.statically.io/img/drive.google.com/uc?id=10F233849zmGJjwaIL5F_8Il01KDaf735

It seems like Statically doesn’t pass the query parameter to the origin and somehow the origin can make statically to return a 301 redirection instead of the file or an error page of it’s own.
