Race day may have started with Williams-Martini drivers Felipe Massa sitting on pole, and his teammate Valtteri Bottas second, but it was Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg who took it to the finish line and won the Austrian Grand Prix..
Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg won his third Grand Prix of the season today, at the Formula One Grand Prix, in Austria. Rosberg is ahead in points for the 2014 driver championship. His teammate Lewis Hamilton has four wins under his belt and was his closest rival on the track, coming in second. This win gives Rosberg a 29 point lead over teammate Hamilton who is expected to win his home race in a couple of weeks during the British Grand Prix, at Silverstone.
Williams-Martini driver Valtteri Bottas delivered some valuable points for his team, crossing the finish line in third place. This was the first time Bottas had been on the podium, and will most likely, will not be his last. For the last 11-years, the Austrian Grand Prix was off the calendar until Austrian billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz owner of Red Bull Energy drink and the Red Bull team, made a deal to bring the race back to the beautiful, newly renovated, Red Bull Ring.
Next race is at Silverstone, for The British Grand Prix. Stay tuned to Xiro Xone F1 Sports.
