Felipe Massa will spearhead a shock all-Williams front row for the Austrian Grand Prix as the Red Bull Ring threw up a major qualifying surprise.

Massa will start on pole position for the first time since his home race in Brazil in 2008 as the 33-year-old took full advantage of a double dose of mistakes from Lewis Hamilton.

The Briton twice appeared on course to post the fastest lap, only to make errors on both of his hot laps in the final part of qualifying and will now start ninth as he failed to set a time.

World championship leader Nico Rosberg, 22 points clear of Hamilton in the drivers' standings, will start third behind the second Williams of Valtteri Bottas.
