If you missed any of the news or action, here is your Debrief from all that happened at the Red Bull Ring.

But Verstappen was able to stay out ahead of the rest of the field, managing his tyres well, eventually claiming victory.

Since then he has finished on the podium at all three races, and in Austria was in superb form to capture his first victory of the campaign.

Their problems handed the first win on their home track to Red Bull, for whom Verstappen drove beautifully to control the race once Mercedes hit their problems, well out of reach of the pursuing Ferraris.

"It's a dream result, a Red Bull vehicle, Max driving, an unbelievable race and it was absolutely nailed in the first lap", enthused Horner after the race, speaking to Sky F1. He backed off through those right handers and made his time in the other parts of the circuit.

'So it's just a matter of now really going through the detail and coming to a conclusion which will certainly be done prior to the summer (August) break'.

"It was all about keeping the slip, the temperatures under control, particularly the left rear".

A Mercedes strategy error had already handed the lead to Verstappen by then and he responded with a mature drive to the chequered flag as his fans celebrated all around. "I was going in front last weekend in Paul Riccard, he was going the race before that in front so we just discuss that and this was his weekend to go in front".


"This is exactly how motor racing can go".

"I could see some orange smoke, I could see them cheering so I think that's good enough", said Verstappen, when asked whether he could hear their acclaim.

Verstappen was half a second off pace-setter Lewis Hamilton in the second practice session which left him P5 in the standings.

His Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo endured a frustrating race on his 29th birthday, retiring due to a broken exhaust.

And rival Red Bull boss Horner is frustrated because his driver Daniel Ricciardo will not commit his future until Hamilton makes up his mind, The Sun reports. "Soon. The time is not far away". Finn is the second season in a row, taking a pole position in Spielberg. We managed to hang on until the end. "The commitment, the resource, the facilities that Honda have available to them is really exciting for us so to be the focal point of attention with the two teams is fantastic for us".

On top of Max Verstappen's errors and mistakes at the start of the year, its drivers collided in Azerbaijan while running fourth and fifth, putting both out of the race, while Ricciardo retired early in the Bahrain Grand Prix with vehicle trouble when well placed to challenge the leaders.

"This year they came back and they got a victory".
