Bottas holds off Vettel to win in Austria
    2017-July-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

VALTTERI BOTTAS won a cliffhanger Austrian Grand Prix in Spielberg for Mercedes on Sunday with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel finishing a mere 0.6 of a second behind to increase his lead over Lewis Hamilton to 20 points after nine races.

Hamilton, Bottas’s teammate, started in eighth place after a grid penalty triggered by an unscheduled gearbox change and finished fourth. Vettel now has 171 points to Hamilton’s 151. Bottas is third overall on 136.

“I had a bit of deja-vu in the end from Russia,” said Bottas, referring to his first Formula One win at Sochi in April when Vettel again almost reeled him in at the finish and also crossed the line 0.6 behind.

“At the beginning I could control the race but it was trickier towards the end.”

Australian Daniel Ricciardo finished third for Red Bull, at the 4.3-kilometer circuit owned by the energy drink brand, for his fifth successive podium finish with Hamilton pushing him hard to the checkered flag.

The victory from pole position was the second of the season and of his career for Bottas, who joined Mercedes in January as a replacement for retired 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg.
