F1: Lewis Hamilton wins Styrian GP ahead of Mercedes teammate Bottas

Published

on

Lewis Hamilton cruised to victory in Austria to lead a Mercedes one-two, but it was a nightmare race for the Ferraris.

Hamilton avoided the problems that hampered his race on this track last week, to finish ahead of Valtteri Bottas, who passed Max Verstappen’s Red Bull in the closing stages.

However, it was a crash between Charles Leclerc and his Ferrari teammate Sebastian Vettel that will keep this race in the memory.

Leclerc’s ill-advised attempt to pass Vettel took out the German and caused floor damage to his own car too, forcing him out before the sixth lap.

Leclerc immediately apologized for the maneuver, saying he had let down the Ferrari team.
