The 2014 Austrian Grand Prix (formally known as the Formula 1 Grosser Preis Von Österreich 2014)[1] was a Formula One motor race that took place on 22 June 2014 at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria. The race was the eighth round of the 2014 season, and marked the 28th running of the Austrian Grand Prix and the first to be held since 2003. It was won by Nico Rosberg for Mercedes from third on the grid.[2]

Felipe Massa started the race from pole position, his first since the 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix.[3]

Report[edit]

Background[edit]

Nico Rosberg was the fastest in the first free practice session with a lap time of 1:11.295.[4] Teammate Lewis Hamilton was the fastest in the second free practice session with a lap time of 1:09.542.[5] Valtteri Bottas was the fastest in the third free practice session with a lap time of 1:09.848.[6]

Qualifying[edit]

Williams driver Felipe Massa became the first driver other than Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg to win a pole this season with a Q3 lap time of 1:08.759.[7] He was joined on the front row by teammate Valtteri Bottas; it was the team's first front row lockout since Juan Pablo Montoya and Ralf Schumacher did so, at the 2003 German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.

Hamilton failed to post a time in Q3, having exceeded track limits on his first lap – with his lap time deleted in the process – and spinning on his second. Sebastian Vettel failed to reach Q3, although his teammate Daniel Ricciardo did.

Race[edit]

At the start, Felipe Massa led the field into the first corner, with Nico Rosberg passing Valtteri Bottas, but being repassed the following straight. Lewis Hamilton had the best start, moving from ninth to fifth and taking another spot from Fernando Alonso soon after. Sebastian Vettel once again suffered from technical problems, losing drive on lap two. He was able to continue but a lap down and after damaging his front wing, he later retired midway through Red Bull's home Grand Prix.

At the front, the tyre changes cleared the way for Mercedes, with Rosberg passing both Williams cars at the first stop and Hamilton taking second during the second round. Sergio Pérez once again drove a good race with a different tyre strategy, taking the super soft compound only for the last laps and successfully challenged Kevin Magnussen for sixth place. Meanwhile, Alonso had reached fourth-placed Massa, but with the superior straight line speed of the Mercedes engine, there was no way to pass.

During the last laps, Hamilton was slowly gaining on teammate Rosberg, but Rosberg took the chequered flag for his third win of the season.[8]
