Felipe Massa has admitted that he is "so happy" to have qualified in pole position for tomorrow's Austrian Grand Prix.

The Williams driver finished just ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas to secure his first pole since the 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix.

The 33-year-old told reporters: "I am so happy with what has happened today, with us, our team, it was such a great moment. It is a long time since I last had a pole position so for sure we need to concentrate on the race tomorrow.

"It is a great moment and I am in the best place to be, first place. After a long time, I hope this is just the beginning of great possibilities. I hope to be in this position again.

"Williams are back to the top, they are back to fight. I am pleased for me and the team as well."

The race is being held at the Red Bull Ring in Austria for the first time since 2003.
