LIVE | Formula 1 2019 Austrian Grand Prix FP1 - Can anyone beat Mercedes?

Formula 1 returns to Austria for the next round of the Championship. Mercedes have dominated the season so far and fans have wondered how long this can go on for. Is it time for someone to beat them? In the liveblog down below we will keep you up to date with the first session of the Grand Prix weekend, FP1.  

Mercedes are on track to equal McLaren's record for the number of consecutive wins by a single team this weekend. The Silver Arrows are currently on a streak of 10 race wins and a win here at Austria would bring them equal to McLarens 11, which is the record. Mercedes have got to 10 consecutive race wins before but have so far failed to reach the lucky 11. Will they make history this weekend? 

Valtteri Bottas feels that this track is one that favours him. Whilst at Mercedes the Finn has never been beaten by his teammate here. Will Bottas be able to take the fight to Hamilton?   

McLaren looked strong last time out in France and the battle of the midfield is going to be one to keep an eye on. 

We will keep you up to date as the teams take to the track for the first time this weekend. Liveblog down below!
