Max Verstappen completed Austrian Grand Prix Friday practice with a "cut" floor on his Red Bull Formula 1 vehicle after morning problems.
Spielberg - Max Verstappen made the most of a rare Mercedes double retirement on Sunday by claiming his first win this year, and Red Bull's first at "home", in an incident-packed Austrian Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen was the toast of the Red Bull team yesterday when he clinched his first victory of the season at the Austrian Grand Prix - the team's home race.
Hamilton's first retirement since October 2016 ended a run of 33 successive races in the points and while it was bound to come one day it still hurt for a champion whose auto has been relentlessly reliable.
Vettel now leads Hamilton, who failed to finish for the first time since the 2016 Malaysian Grand Prix, by one point ahead of next week's British Grand Prix.
Profiting from the mishap to Mercedes and Red Bull's Ricciardo, Romain Grosjean steered his Haas into fourth place, giving the USA team its best finish in a F1 race.
Verstappen said it had been an "average" day, and that while Red Bull "lose quite a bit of time on the straights" with its Renault engine it was also struggling to find a handling balance. "But I don't know if we'll even get close enough to activate the DRS". "So positive day but could have been better". 'We understand. It's my mistake, ' before later adding: 'I have thrown away the win.More news: Trump fails to rule out accepting Russian claim on Crimea
"I either won or I said something", he joked. I had plenty of people coming to see me before the race and saying it would be a walk in the park, one and two, you have the quickest vehicle, and I said "let's talk in two hours" and this is exactly how motor racing can go.
After Mercedes dominated qualifying to secure both spots on the front of the grid, many thought the race would simply be a procession to a Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton one-two. "I'm sure the guys will be working to rectify things".
On lap 53, he pitted again for super-softs, dropping a place to fifth behind Ricciardo, who nearly immediately slowed and stopped.
The Mercedes driver looked to be cruising to victory but retired from the race with a loss of fuel pressure, after suffering tyre problems and a major strategy error. Kimi Raikkonen (FIN/Ferrari) at 1.504sec, 3. Romain Grosjean (FRA/Haas-Ferrari) one lap, 5. McLaren's Fernando Alonso was eighth. Pierre Gasly (FRA/Toro Rosso-Honda) one lap, 12.
Williams driver Sergey Sirotkin had set his personal best first sector when the yellow flags hit in the middle sector, meaning he ended up 18th after three runs. Lance Stroll (CAN/Williams-Mercedes) two laps, 15.
Stoffel Vandoorne was quickest of the drivers eliminated in Q1 thanks to Stroll's last-minute lap relegating him to 16th place.
Horner also paid tribute to his team for pulling off a high-pressure double stacked stop during the virtual safety vehicle period that was called when Valtteri Bottas retired.
