Austrian Grand Prix LIVE: Qualifying build-up, FP3 shortly, Hamilton fastest in FP2 – results, latest updates

THE AUSTRIAN GRAND PRIX is here – and there’s the small matter of qualifying today at the Red Bull Ring. Lewis Hamilton is now 18 points behind rival Max Verstappen but had a boost by securing victory in second practice. Lewis Hamilton has signed a new two-year contract with Mercedes keeping him in F1 until 2023, writes BEN HUNT. He is one of the best and I think he will give Hamilton a hard time. Lewis Hamilton finished on top with team-mate Valtteri Bottas coming in behind him. P3 is set to begin at 11am UK time, and qualifying is set for 2pm. And we’re into the 1:04s now – it’s Hamilton who goes fastest from Bottas and then Verstappen as the teams start to open the taps here. Lap times are starting to fall a bit this afternoon – halfway through the session. And then Hamilton comes in with a 1:05/6 as well just a hair slower than his team-mate.
