    ROSBERG HAS WRECKED HIS CAR IN FINAL PRACTICE WHEN THE REAR SUSPENSION BROKE ON THE NEW KERBS. Austrian Grand Prix qualifying - BBC Sport suspension failure was due to "resonance" on both kerbs meaning both cars may be at risk in the race.

    Diesel car hire in Austria

    Can anyone help please? I am trying to hire a diesel car in Salzburg (at the airport) but am not having much success. Most hire companies say they cannot guarantee type of car. Ideally I would like to hire a Golf TDI ( do not mind a 130bhp one!). All advice/help greatly appreciated.
