Nico Rosberg claimed his third win of the season after overtaking Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton as the fastest driver in the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday.

The German overtook world champion Hamilton at the start of the race and maintained the lead to the end.

Meanwhile, Williams’ Felipe Massa finished third ahead of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who couldn’t replicate his car’s pace in practice and had a troubled pit stop, the BBC reported.

The race also witnessed a heavy crash between Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and McLaren’s Fernando Alonso, although both drivers appear to emerge unhurt.

With the win, Rosberg has reduced Hamilton’s advantage to 10 points in the drivers’ championship.
