Hamilton starts EIGHTH: Bottas on pole in Austrian Grand Prix

Austrian Grand Prix Live Lewis Hamilton in action

Starting grid: 1st row: Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes), Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari).

Mercedes said the relevant parts would be replaced for qualifying.

"The team informed the technical delegate about the gearbox change on Tuesday, 04th July 2017, at 11:29 hours'".

"I didn't deliver", he said.

"The lap was not quick enough, but I was very happy", Vettel added. "It's difficult for us to swallow".

The task he faces is immense.

The Finn clocked 1min 4.251sec to outpace championship leader Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari by four hundredths of a second.

But his Williams teammate Felipe Massa hardly fared better and starts from 17th.

It was the second pole of the Finnish driver's career, and both have been since joining Mercedes this season.

Asked by Motorsport.com whether the gearbox was damaged by the Vettel crash, a Mercedes spokesman said: "We can rule this out".

Having avoided the gravel trap, Hamilton recovered to the pits gingerly, with Mercedes detecting a brake problem that ended his session early.

He claimed top spot from Bottas with a 1m06.329s then improved again to his session-best 1m05.975s. He will start on the medium super-soft Pirelli compound, unlike his rivals, who are on the soft ultra-soft, meaning he will be able to run a longer opening stint and run in clean air.

"Perhaps the weather can come into play".

"I tried a lot of different lines at turn three and all the time I was losing the rear of the car". The penalty means that, even with pole position, Hamilton would start from sixth place on the grid. 3rd: Max Verstappen (Red Bull), Romain Grosjean (Haas).

Palmer, who was particularly down-beat at the last race in Baku, is struggling for form and facing increased pressure as questions about his future in the team continue to grow. "So, I think it's more unlikely now than it was then, but I'll give it everything I can and of course I'll be happy if I get up there".

Further back, Grosjean was seventh for Haas, 0.397secs off Verstappen, followed by Force India's Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon in eighth and ninth.

Stoffel Vandoorne was the leading McLaren in 13th, a fraction ahead of team-mate Fernando Alonso in 15th.

He has one possible tactical advantage over the rest of the field in that he's the only driver in the top ten to be starting the race on supersofts.

"I really enjoyed today, and we definitely had got a car that was really nice and stable for qualifying". The Saubers of Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Wehrlein were 19th and 20th.
