Nico Rosberg held off a challenge from teammate Lewis Hamilton to win the Austrian GP for the sixth 1-2 finish by Mercedes this season.

It was Rosberg’s third win of the year and sixth overall as he extended his lead in the drivers’ championship over Hamilton.

Valtteri Bottas came third for his first career Formula One podium, while Williams teammate Felipe Massa, who started from pole Position on Sunday, took fourth.

Four-time Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel had an engine problem in the second lap and was doubled by the field before quitting the race in the 36th on Red Bull’s home circuit.
