Bottas on pole in Austria

Lewis Hamilton's hopes of reducing Sebastian Vettel's 14-points lead in this year's drivers' world championship suffered a setback late Friday (Saturday in Manila) when he was handed a five-place grid penalty for this weekend's Austrian Grand Prix.

"We need to focus on trying to have a good start to the race and we need to win the race".

Valtteri Bottas has no intention of changing his approach to the Austrian Grand Prix in order to help Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton.

And that when former G2 champion Davide Valescchi tried rather lamely to get Vettel and Hamilton to shake hands as he interviewed them immediately afterwards, neither of them exhibited the slightest interest even though had professed their continuing respect for none another on Thursday after their controversial collision last time out in Baku.

Samsung forecasts record Q2 profits
Demand has soared for smartphones and servers with more powerful chips and, as a result, their sales have gone up. For the first time ever, its second-quarter operating profits could also exceed those of iPhone maker Apple Inc .

Asked if he could win Sunday's race, a downbeat Hamilton said "it's not really on my mind at the moment", adding that the race is more likely to be a case of "damage limitation". I did the best job that I could and I will do the best job I can tomorrow.

The second attack was not, which is staged Bottas who scored his second pole position of his career. The auto was good and Valtteri did a fantastic job today so I'm really happy for him but I just didn't hook it up.

"Congratulations to Valtteri and to Sebastian", Hamilton said.

"I was very interested, I was watching the TV and I was curious to see what would happen".

Every time he gets the ball in his hand he seems to want to run in faster, bowl faster and get wickets. This match will be skipper Joe Root's first match in charge since replacing Alastair Cook at helm.

"The auto was getting better and better as the grip was coming up".

Hamilton may gain some inspiration from the example set previous year by Dutchman Max Verstappen, who started ninth on the grid in his Red Bull, but climbed to finish second courtesy of a well-crafted one-stop strategy. "Honestly I really don't feel that there is tension here", Hamilton told reporters.

McLaren failed to put its upgraded Honda power unit in Stoffel Vandoorne's vehicle to good use as the Belgian finished 13th in Q2, just behind teammate Fernando Alonso who had been forced to revert back to the 'Spec 2′ engine earlier in the day following a problem. Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari, Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull, Romain Grosjean of Haas and Sergio Perez of Force India move up as a result.

Haas F1 pilot Kevin Magnussen was unable to post a time in Q2 after suffering a rear suspension failure in the opening session.

Vinyl Is Making a Comeback
But despite the current popularity of digital music services like Spotify , old school records are enjoying a renaissance. Although the records will mostly be sold in Japan, the decision is indicative of vinyl's stunning return to prominence.

It was a miserable qualifying for Williams, with Massa starting in 17th and Stroll in 18th, and McLaren fared only slightly better with Alonso starting 12th and Vandoorne 13th.
