Williams took everyone by surprise as they locked up the front row of the Austrian GP.

Felipe_Massa-Austrian_GP-2014-S01Felipe Massa took a sensational pole position for Williams at the Austrian Grand Prix ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas as Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton made crucial mistakes.

Massa heads teammate Valtteri Bottas in an all-Williams front row with Rosberg third and Fernando Alonso fourth while Hamilton is only ninth. He ran wide and had the lap discounted on his first run, then he spun with an apparent problem on his rear brakes in his second attempt to get the pole.
