Nico Rosberg extended his championship lead with his third victory of the year in Austria, taking advantage of the fact that teammate Lewis Hamilton started back in ninth.

Although the Briton was quickly up to fourth and on Rosberg’s tail, he never got into a position to properly challenge Nico as both men had to fight their way past the Williams duo on strategy, and then preserve their equipment. Rosberg insisted that the race went to plan.

Lewis Hamilton managed to convert ninth on the grid to second at the flag in Austria, but despite the successful damage limitation the Mercedes driver was clearly frustrated to lose out to teammate Nico Rosberg once again.

Hamilton had a superb first lap and was in fourth place – behind Rosberg – by the end of it.

“We’ve been working very hard on our starts throughout the year,” said Hamilton. “And the team have done a great job to help out with that, and so I got one of the best starts I’ve ever had really and positioned the car in the correct places.

The Jaguar E-Type needs no icing on its cake of sultry vintage speed, but this find has some anyway. Once owned by a Bugatti race driver, this E-Type was worked over by a race mechanic at Bugatti’s shop in Molsheim, France, to extract more power—enough for an extra 7 mph of top end.

Even aside from the Bugatti pedigree, however, this E-Type is lust-worthy. The exterior, while dusty, appears to be almost entirely straight and rust-free, while the interior is nearly pristine—even after sitting in storage for the past 42 years.
