Austrian Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton quickest in opening practice session

Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton headed Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel in first practice at the Austrian Grand Prix.
Vettel spent the session trying new parts on his Ferrari and was 0.017secs up on the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas.
Bottas has never been out-qualified by a team-mate at the Red Bull Ring and the Finn admitted at the start of the weekend that his hopes of challenging Hamilton for the title hang on his performances “in the next few races”.
Hamilton was one of a number of drivers to run wide and damage his car on the aggressive kerbs that are placed at some parts of the track.
