Austrian Grand Prix: Bottas on pole, Hamilton gets grid penalty

Sebastian Vettel felt the SF70H felt good during free practice for the Austrian Grand Prix on Friday, with the German finishing fourth fastest in first practice and second fastest in the second. "We are getting stronger, and this track is not our worst, not our best", said the Ricciardo. "I want to win the next 12 races", he said.

In the championship standings, four-time champion Vettel leads three-time champion Hamilton by 14 points after eight races. Mercedes had already changed it once before that.

Hamilton had been fastest in the first round of qualifying.

However, the pair do still maintain a mutual respect it seems, with footage posted to Twitter showing Vettel and Hamilton shaking hands immediately after the final qualifying session in Spielberg.

"I still have the utmost respect for him as a driver and will continue to race him hard through the rest of the season in the same way as I always have", said Hamilton.

But it will take something special for Hamilton to win the 57th race of his career. But he is not confident of a repeat performance.

"It should be an interesting [and] good fight tomorrow", he said.

FP3 came to an end with the top 10 being: Vettel, Hamilton, Bottas, Raikkonen, Verstappen, Ricciardo, Magnussen, Grosjean, Kvyat and Sainz. "I expect the normal situation with Mercedes - they'll have a bit more for qualifying - but hopefully Ferrari don't have too much more and we can try to be in that battle". "We have to look after our own race".

Bottas starts from pole with Vettel second and Hamilton down in eighth after a five-place grid penalty. "It's a great track, really enjoyable with a lot of high-speed corners".

Red Bull's Dutch teenager Max Verstappen starts fifth with Grosjean sixth.

Alonso had reported a lack of power early in the session, believing to have sustained another engine issue, but was able to finish just 0.05 seconds off a place in Q3.

But his Williams teammate Felipe Massa hardly fared better and starts from 17th.

Williams, who enjoyed a front row lockout at this race in 2014, had an extremely disappointing qualifying having struggled with the balance of their vehicle and bringing the tyres into the right operating window; both Felipe Massa and Lance Stroll were eliminated in the first session in 17th and 18th, despite showing impressive pace through the speed traps, behind the Renault of Jolyon Palmer.
