  • Max Verstappen wins Austrian F1 as Mercedes ruins Lewis Hamilton's day, Sebastian Vettel takes title lead

That compromised his race day and while he recovered to a podium position, taking back the lead in the standings in the wake of Lewis Hamilton's exit, Vettel expressed frustration over the situation.

Horner believes Mercedes showed signs of vulnerability in Austria and hopes his team can up the pressure and force more errors in the future.

Verstappen was in the lead of the race with Raikkonen a couple of seconds behind.

"But I say "we hope not" because every time a auto stops in an uncontrolled way where a failure happens and systems are shut down in a way which is unusual, we can't be completely sure until we have done all the necessary checks that all the bits of the vehicle which are sealed and which do attract penalties weren't affected". Daniel Ricciardo finished eight tenths adrift of Vettel in P5, but team mate Verstappen, hoping for an incident-free session after his RB14 crawled to a halt towards the end of FP1 after suffering a gearbox failure, ended up without a time after losing the rear of his vehicle at Luffield with less than 20 minutes on the clock. But Verstappen was able to stay out ahead of the rest of the field, managing his tyres well, eventually claiming victory.

"Nobody is flawless. It would be boring if that was the case", added Hamilton, 33, whose new £120million contract with Mercedes will not be announced this weekend. His hopes of fighting for a podium were ruined when his auto began losing power, resulting in him retiring on the 63rd lap of the race. "It's incredible to win in a Red Bull at the Red Bull Ring", said Verstappen, who was supported by an "Orange army" of more than 20,000 fans. This takes his total tally of Formula 1 wins to four.

"Every driver is different, and I've never worked with Lewis so I don't know what makes him tick, but it seems a fairly freakish thing for someone to need to do - to throw themselves under the bus to motivate a driver to go from fourth back into the lead", Horner said.

In the World Constructors' Championship, Ferrari is now ahead of Mercedes by 10 points. "I've got no time left in the tyres", said Hamilton, aware that a straightforward race win was in peril. Kevin Magnussen ("Haas") - 37 8. I feel I have the best strategy team behind me. Fernando Alonso took McLaren to eighth place, which was an unexpected result given that he started from the pits.

"The weakness at the end of last season was that the vehicle wasn't strong enough to fight Mercedes".

Haas ran just one vehicle after Romain Grosjean was forced to sit out after his FP1 shunt, with Kevin Magnussen settling for 12th place ahead of Pierre Gasly, who was forced to park his Toro Rosso with a mechanical issue with just 16 laps on the board. Renault's Carlos Sainz Jr ended the race 12th (his team-mate Nico Hulkenberg had already retired) while Williams drivers Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin were the last classified finishers in 13th and 14th place.
