Broken steering was to blame for Nick Yelloly’s retirement from the Sprint Race at the Red Bull Ring today.

The Hilmer Motorsport driver started from reverse grid pole position after finishing in eighth place in the Feature Race on Saturday.

A slow getaway saw Rio Haryanto out drag the Briton from the front row as well as Alexander Rossi from P4. Yelloly was squeezed by his rivals and contact with Rossi bent his steering rack and sent him tumbling down the order.

Yelloly went on to retire from the race after just two laps of the 28 lap race.

It appears that the GP3 Series race winner is on a race-by-race contract with the German team so it is unclear whether or not we will see him racing at his home event in two weeks.
