Bottas claims Austrian GP pole

A messy end to Q3 left Valtteri Bottas on pole for the 2nd time in his career, ahead of championship leader Sebastien Vettel. I had a decent lap in the end - not ideal, but it was good enough.

Hopes of a crackling showdown between the Mercedes and Ferrari rivals in the final seconds were blown away when Romain Grosjean's Haas broke down on track and brought out the warning flags.

The Formula One 2017 season has been very interesting so far and it is not the Mercedes drivers leading at the top which has been the case in the past few years.

The Austrian Grand Prix takes place Sunday at 8AM ET from Red Bull Ring.

"Firstly, congratulations to Valtteri - he did a fantastic job".

"It just wasn't meant to be today. I hoped for a little better balance in the vehicle but overall it was not too bad", said Verstappen. You just try to get as high as possible and then when it comes to the race it's about damage limitation so I'll try to minimise the damage. Three years ago in Austria, he finished a brilliant second from ninth on the grid, but Ferrari is much quicker now.

When asked if there was anything in particular he has been struggling with compared to Vettel this weekend, he replied: "Yesterday we had some difficulties but from this morning it was all back to normal".

We can't help but cheer for her, obviously, but at the same time, trolls like this don't deserve acknowledgment. Fans also confronted the person and praised the Piece by Piece hit-maker for standing up to him.

"Nothing changes at all, if I'm honest", said Hamilton about how he would approach the race.

Hamilton refused to add more words on the incident in his pre-race press conference while Vettel was apologetic.

Vettel was summoned to an FIA hearing in Paris last Monday, which then chose to take no further action after he apologised and accepted full responsibility.

"On the balance, we didn't really touch the auto at all during qualifying, and the laps were getting better and better as a result".

"It's a great track, the vehicle has been phenomenal".

"It should be an interesting fight tomorrow now and the target is not less than winning for us". One racer delegated "Haas" (Grosjean) and Toro Rosso (Sainz Jr). There has been bad blood between the Mexican and French rookie since they collided in Baku while fighting for podium places.

Fernando Alonso beat McLaren team-mate Stoffel Vandoorne to 12th despite the latter running with a newer specification of the beleaguered Honda engine. As of now, all the drivers will keep their focus on the Austrian Grand Prix which was last won by Hamilton.
