In a shock result in qualifying for the Austrian Grand Prix today, Williams Martini Racing has secured its first front row lock-out since the 2003 German Grand Prix.
Felipe Massa was the man to take the spoils, securing his first pole position since the 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix, but he only just denied teammate Valtteri Bottas his first career pole in the dying moments of the session.
Williams was able to capitalize on Mercedes’ mistakes during the final part of Q3. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg looked set to fight for pole position once again, but a mistake from the Briton meant that he did not post a time during the final session. As a result, he will start from ninth on the grid tomorrow. Nico Rosberg will start third after his teammate’s spin prevented him from bettering his time.
