Valtteri Bottas achieves pole position at Spielberg

Finn Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) will start from pole this Sunday in the Austrian Grand Prix, the ninth of the Formula One World Championship, which takes place at the Red Bull Ring circuit in Spielberg, in Styria.

Bottas signed this Saturday the second pole of his F1 career by covering the 4,318 meters of the Austrian circuit in one minute, four seconds and 251 thousandths, 42 less than the German Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari), leader of the World Championship, who will start together to him from the front row.

The English Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), second in the World Championship, fourteen points behind Vettel, finished third in qualifying, but will lose five places on the starting grid, sanctioned, for having replaced his gearbox before the cycle of six consecutive tests , so it will start this Sunday from eighth position in Austria.
