It will be closer this race they said. Mercedes might have a challenge they said. Instead Mercedes just showed off their dominance even more by taking a front row lock-out despite both Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg spinning out on their final qualifying runs in Austria.

Hamilton’s pole means the team have now gone a whole season unbeaten in qualifying, with Felipe Massa’s pole position in last year’s Austrian Grand Prix being the last time a Silver Arrow didn’t start from the front of the grid.

When both your drivers spin off and you still lock-out the front row, you know your rivals don’t stand a chance.tumblr_mo8fs69B5a1qecd5do1_500
