Nico Rosberg crashed following a suspension failure during FP3

NICO ROSBERG CRASH AUSTRIAN GP

The championship leader ran onto the kerbs on the exit of Turn 2 with the left-rear tyre vibrating heavily.

The suspension then appeared to fail, pitching him into the barriers nose-first before he rebounded back onto the track.

Mercedes is investigating the issue and now faces a race to get the car fixed in time for qualifying later on Saturday afternoon.

As Rosberg was unable to complete a low-fuel run at the end of the session, he ended up bottom of the timesheets.
