Lewis Hamilton leads in both practice sessions at Austrian Grand Prix

QUIZ: How well do you know the Austrian Grand Prix?

"It should be an interesting fight tomorrow now and the target is not less than winning for us". Surely, he starts out of position and will try to come back, but we have to look after ourselves, try to race our own race, and see what we can do.

But Hamilton refused claiming he already had and walked off.

Vettel was given a 10-second drive through penalty, but that was not enough to stop him finishing ahead of Hamilton and increasing his lead overall to 14-points. "I don't think it'll make a big difference, it's a slower tyre", he said. However, with the rest of the pack starting on ultra-softs, Hamilton will be able to go longer into the race before pitting and will enjoy a pace advantage towards the end after pitting. However, the three-time world champion is less confident that he can perform similar heroics this time around.

"Pretty good day", he said Friday.

Bottas added: "From what I've seen on the pre-race strategy notes, that kind of plan is not on those notes".

In the fight for pole still chose to first fastest lap from Bottas - Finnish driver of "Mercedes" on 0,042 thousandths of a second ahead of Vettel, while Hamilton is located on the third intermediate position. "It's a great track, really enjoyable with a lot of high-speed corners".

Red Bull, who have an excellent auto and two really great drivers in Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, still has a power penalty to pay.

Vettel will share the front row with Bottas, with Finnish team mate Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull's Australian Daniel Riccardo on the second row.

Williams' miserable weekend in Spielberg continued as both Felipe Massa and Lance Stroll were eliminated in Q1, finishing 17th and 18th as the new updates for the FW40 vehicle continued to cause headaches.

Danish driver Kevin Magnussen, boosted by his seventh place in Azerbaijan, was hampered by suspension problems and was one of the five drivers who failed to make it into Q3 - as did both McLarens.

In Q1, Jolyon Palmer ended up just on the wrong side of the cut-off in 16th for Renault - 0.029secs shy of Vandoorne and Q2.

In a mediocre qualifying performance on Saturday, the Mercedes driver finished third behind Vettel's Ferrari and the Mercedes of teammate Valtteri Bottas. The penalty means that, even with pole position, Hamilton would start from sixth place on the grid.

Mercedes had to change the unit before it had completed its mandatory six races, with the matter referred to the stewards.

"The team informed the technical delegate about the gearbox change on Tuesday, 04th July 2017, at 11:29 hours'".

Asked if he could win the race, a downbeat Hamilton said "it's not really on my mind at the moment".
