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

Verstappen wins in Austria as Vettel grabs lead in standings

In Austria, Vettel because of the fine started only sixth, but a double gathering of racers "the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas helped the German to make the podium and take Hamilton the lead in the championship".

Lewis Hamilton has insisted that the reliability issues that capped a bad weekend for Mercedes in Austria last weekend have been fixed in time for his home grand prix at Silverstone on Sunday.

Fourth place in the race went to Romain Grosjean, who managed to score his first points since the 2017 Japanese Grand Prix, much to the relief of his Haas F1 team. The main reason was Mercedes' tactical blunder, which saw them staying out during the Virtual Safety Car while everyone else behind them dove in for a stop.

"I've already booked Sunday week as my day off and I'm keeping it free as I want to be in Russian Federation that day to support England", said Hamilton, who played football at school in Stevenage with England left-back Ashley Young.

"This year's vehicle has more potential. There's a great energy about the team".

'Coming here there have been some fixes, the team are super on it and we've done everything we can to make sure it doesn't happen again.

This weekend's British Grand Prix coincides with the English national team's biggest game in recent memory: the quarter-final against Sweden, which starts the moment qualifying is scheduled to finish at Silverstone.

"We have got a bit of work on to make sure we are not taking undue risks with parts which might have had some consequential damage when the auto was shut down". "It's my mistake. Do what you can", replied Mercedes strategist James Vowles.

However, the disturbance is expected to interact with a frontal system on Sunday, which should limit any additional development. This system appears to be less organized, the center said , and the chances for a tropical depression to form are diminishing.

'Everyone in the team will feel a nervousness. "It's a real privilege for me and I was just watching some of the replays of previous year and if you look at the end when it shows you all of the positions and obviously to see the Union Jack up there is always a great feeling". We have had far more success than failures. It's just part of our sport. Maybe ten years ago it was more likely that every team, every auto, would stop at some point in a race but we've seen in the last few years that's very unlikely that it will happen.

The victory was the 20-year-old driver's first of the season, and fourth of his career.

"It was unbelievable to win at the Red Bull Ring with so many Dutch fans here".

"It has been an up-and-down season, I can't really explain it", Hamilton said.

"I think from 2017, we had a better vehicle from the start, we had great results in the beginning of the year", said Vettel.

"Probably more like somewhere in-between, but I don't want to get into predictions".

'I'm focused on what we do. "After that, the auto came good, but we just ran out of laps". This should come as a concern for Fernando Alonso, if he chooses to participate in the Endurance racing, should the former world champion continue to remain in F1 next season.

"Obviously, there was an error that happened to us as a team".
