Valtteri Bottas set the pace in final practice for the Austrian GP of 2014.
The surprise of the session was Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat who took fourth, ahead of Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.
The field was tightly packed around the short lap at the challenging Red Bull Ring, with just 0.079secs covering the first four and 0.2secs the top six, the fastest Red Bull was just seventh on the team’s home circuit, in the hands of Daniel Ricciardo, who was 0.17secs quicker than his four-time world champion team-mate Sebastian Vettel in 10th.
Kevin Magnussen was eighth for McLaren, with team-mate Jenson Button missing most of the session after he experienced some brake problems. Kimi Raikkonen was ninth, again struggling compared to team-mate Alonso, 0.434secs adrift of the Spaniard.
