Nico Rosberg wins F1 Austrian Grand Prix

SPIELBERG, Austria — Formula One returned to business as usual Sunday as Nico Rosberg led Lewis Hamilton at the Austrian Grand Prix for the sixth 1-2 finish by Mercedes this year.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo won the Canadian Grand Prix on June 8 and Williams' Felipe Massa took the pole position Saturday, but Mercedes rebounded in the race.

"It wasn't the easiest of races, trying to manage certain things which were on the limit on the car," said Rosberg, referring to small problems both Mercedes had with braking. "But I had a fantastic car again."

Rosberg's third win of the year extended his points lead over Hamilton, 165-136. The team has won all but one of the eight races this season.

Williams' Valtteri Bottas was third for his first F1 podium and teammate Massa took fourth. Four-time series champion Sebastian Vettel was out on Lap 36, another down day for the Austrian-based Red Bull team in its home race.

NHRA: Angie Smith earned her first career victory in Pro Stock Motorcycle in the first husband-wife final in an NHRA pro series event, beating husband and teammate Matt Smith with a pass of 6.905 seconds at 191.89 mph at the New England Nationals in Epping, N.H. Ron Capps won in Funny Car, Tony Schumacher won in Top Fuel and Dave Connolly in Pro Stock.
