Welcome to our live and interactive coverage of the 2017 Formula One season.

Today the action is coming to us from the Red Bull Ring where the drivers will battle it out for pole for the Austrian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton looked in superb form topping the timesheets in FP1 and FP2 but five-place grid penalty for an unscheduled gearbox change ended his hunt for pole before it really even began.

That opens the door for Valtteri Bottas, Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel, who was quickest in FP3, to put their car at the front of the pack.

Red Bull will be hoping to spring a surprise or two on their home turf and while pole might be unlikely, getting in and amongst the Mercs and Ferraris on the grid will set them up nicely for a run at the podium tomorrow.

Hamilton can start at best sixth in Sunday’s race after being hit with a five-place grid penalty for an unauthorised gearbox change.

Mercedes discovered a problem with Hamilton’s gearbox after the previous race in Azerbaijan and informed governing body the FIA on Tuesday, but the issue became public only on Friday evening at the Red Bull Ring

Teams have to run a gearbox for six consecutive events but Hamilton’s has had to be changed before that period expired.

Even without the penalty, it looks like Mercedes have a serious battle on their hands with Ferrari this weekend, with Vettel impressively fast throughout final practice after struggling on Friday.

Mercedes said Hamilton’s problem with be rectified before qualifying, which starts at 13:00 BST.

Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas was third fastest, 0.423secs slower than Vettel but 0.096secs quicker than the second Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen.
