The Austrian Grand Prix returned to the Formula One calendar for the first time since 2003 under the new name of the Red Bull Ring.

It was an interesting weekend as the Williams team were able to put themselves amongst the Mercedes cars with a shock one-two in qualifying.

However, neither pole sitter Felipe Massa nor team-mate Valtteri Bottas were able to convert their advantage into  a race win as Nico Rosberg crossed the line in first place for the third time this season ahead of Lewis Hamilton.

Rosberg extended his lead in the drivers' championship to 29 points. But which drivers caught the eye of Give Me Sport and made it into the top five this weekend?
