The F1 Austrian Grand Prix - Full race results

In what surely has been the race of the season so far, here are the full results of the Austrian Grand Prix, as Max Verstappen secured his first win of the campaign with a late move on Charles Leclerc.

After a terrible start, Verstappen dropped five places into P7, initially being overtaken by teammate Pierre Gasly as well. He slowly made back a few places as the race progressed, however, and stayed out the longest for his first stop out of everyone in the top five. 

The overcut proved fruitful, with the Dutchman coming out of the pits in front of Lewis Hamilton, who was nursing a broken W10 despite having a new front wing. Verstappen proceeded to overtake Sebastian Vettel and Valtteri Bottas for P2, his starting position. Five seconds behind Leclerc, he chipped away at that gap, until he found himself right in the gearbox of his fellow 21-year-old. 

Leclerc defended brilliantly in Verstappen's first attempt at a move, but at the second time of asking, the Dutchman made it stick, banging wheels with Leclerc but coming out as the race leader. He continued to lead for the rest of the way and secured his sixth ever Grand Prix victory.
