The Formula 1 season nears its halfway point in Austria on Sunday with round nine of the 20-race season as the title fight continues to hot up between Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton.
After coming to blows two weeks ago in Baku, Vettel and Hamilton’s rivalry was the talk of the paddock in Spielberg, but the pair have apparently patched things up and cooled tensions.
Neither driver was able to bag pole position on Saturday, with that honor instead going to Hamilton’s Mercedes teammate, Valtteri Bottas, after edging out Vettel in the Q3 shootout.
Bottas heads into Sunday’s race chasing his second grand prix victory, while Hamilton has a fightback to complete after a penalty dropped him to eighth place on the grid.
With Vettel second for Ferrari and the likes of Kimi Raikkonen, Daniel Ricciardo, and Max Verstappen all lurking at the front, the stage is set for a close battle on Sunday.
