Nico Rosberg's title battle with Lewis Hamilton took another turn at last weekend's Austrian GP - for the better as far as the German was concerned, after he led his Mercedes team-mate home in the team's sixth 1-2 of the season.

Rosberg now holds a 29-point lead over Hamilton, who started ninth after a qualifying spin - the second such error in as many races. Joining Anna Woolhouse to discuss Sunday's race are journalist, commentator and podium announcer Bob Constanduros and GP3 driver Dino Zamparelli and they talk about the wider aspects of the Mercedes rivalry after team boss Toto Wolff suggested that the flow of information across the garage is not what it could be.

Anna, Bob and Dino will also consider Williams' strong showing in Austria as well as what Red Bull team boss Christian Horner labelled the World Champions' worst performance of the season so far. So much for home advantage.

Enjoy the show and, as ever, feel free to contribute your thoughts in the comments section below.
