Williams lock out front row

Felipe Massa claimed his first pole position since 2008 as he set the fastest time of 1:08.759 in Spielberg today, with his team mate Valtteri Bottas securing Williams a sensational front row for the 2014 Austrian Grand Prix.

Championship leader Nico Rosberg was third, but the other Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton failed to set a time in Q3 as he made a mistake and didn’t respect the track limits. Eventually he had a spin and finished ninth. Poor luck for Red Bull‘s Sebastian Vettel, who was knocked out in Q2 and.

Fernando Alonso was fourth in his Ferrari, just ahead of Austrian Daniel Ricciardo, who won the last Canadian GP. McLaren‘s Keving Magnussen finished sixth in front of Russian Daniil Kvyat (Toro Rosso), for the third time this year in the Q3.

Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, Hamilton and Niko Hulberg (Sahara Force India), completed the top 10.
