Good reaction from Hamilton and Rosberg in parc ferme, shaking hands and mimicking their playful fight from Bahrain. Strong showing from Mercedes, a well managed race.

The winning three celebrate on the podium, with Bottas getting most of the spray in his face following his maiden career podium. Rosberg extends his lead and Hamilton doesn't look too unhappy, which is probably understandable considering where he started the race.

Mark Webber doing the interview on the podium today. That smile must have been beaming since Vettel hit his problems early...

Lap 71

Rosberg locks up coming out of Turn 3 but Hamilton wobbles through it as well! So close for Hamilton but he wasn't close enough.

Rosberg wins the Austrian Grand Prix

Hamilton's charge just not enough, a few more laps and you would have fancied him for a win. Solid, if unspectacular, drive from Rosberg out in front.

Bottas claims his maiden podium as Hulkenberg loses out to Ricciardo on the final lap! The Red Bull gets up to eighth as Hulkenberg loses a place on the last lap for the second race in a row.

Lap 70

Two laps left. The gap is 1.2s so it will need something pretty special to catch Rosberg.

Bianchi ahead could give Hamilton an advantage of some sort but he dives out of the way at the first opportunity. The gap is nine tenths as they cross the line - Hamilton in DRS range for the final lap!

Lap 69

Hamilton told he's now "Strap-Six" until the end of the race, which may well mean he's got his most aggressive fuel setting for the rest of the race. I don't think he's going to have enough laps as the gap is not coming down at all.

Lap 68

Hamilton 1.2s down on Rosberg now. Is Rosberg struggling with tyres now? Can't imagine Mercedes is enjoying this on the pit wall. Hamilton nearly into DRS range but he's got barely any time to make a move. Surely Rosberg has enough in the bag.

Hamilton drops off in the middle sector, he appeared to lock up somewhere.

Lap 67

I think Hamilton will run out of laps but he's narrowed the gap to 1.3s with five laps left. Perez told to use DRS to secure P6 and then bring the car home.

Really good drive from Perez, again.
