Valtteri Bottas claimed the first podium finish of his Formula 1 career for the Grove-based Williams team by coming third in the Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.
Bottas's teammate, Felipa Massa, finished fourth after starting from pole position as Nico Rosberg claimed his third victory this season to spearhead a sixth one-two for Mercedes as title rival Lewis Hamilton was forced to settle for second best.
Pastor Maldonado and Romain Grosjean, driving the Enstone-based Lotus cars, finish 12 and 14th respectively.
Jules Bianchi was 15th for Banbury outfit Marussia, with teammate Max Chilton 17th, while Kamui Kobayashi brought the first Leafield-based Caterham car home in 16th, ahead of teammate Marcus Ericsson in 18th.
