Hamilton completes Austrian practice sweep

Six-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton completed a sweep of Austrian Grand Prix practise on Saturday, with his Mercedes team again one-two on the timesheets while Canadian rookie Nicholas Latifi crashed his Williams.

Hamilton, who led team-mate Valtteri Bottas in both of Friday’s sessions resumed his position at the top with the fastest effort of one minute 04.130 seconds around the Red Bull Ring.

Bottas was 0.147 slower on a sunny day, with Mercedes given a boost overnight when stewards rejected a Red Bull protest against the champions’ new Dual Axis Steering (DAS) system.
