Valtteri Bottas beat the Mercedes pair to the top spot during final practice in Austria, with Lewis Hamilton coming in just five hundredths of a second down the road. Nico Rosberg struggled slightly more and ended up fifth, with another Williams and the Toro Rosso of Daniil Kvyat ahead of him.

Jenson Button had a problem with the engine affecting his ability to brake. The Brit completed only four tours of the Red Bull Ring, and was four seconds off the pace.
