Hamilton fastest in upgraded vehicle in practice for Austrian GP

Austrian Grand Prix- Red Bull Ring Spielberg Austria

Red Bull's Max Verstappen took the race win ahead of the Ferrari pair of Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel while both Mercedes failed to finish with mechanical failure. So phenomenal for us to win in a Red Bull auto at the Red Bull Ring, be given the trophy by an ex-Red Bull driver, a Red Bull day all round.

Ricciardo's comments while laden with humour hold some bearing as his relationship with Red Bull notoriously took a nose dive earlier this year as Mercedes, Ferrari and McLaren circle around the boisterous star.

"All credit to Max today, he drove a very, very mature race, managing a very tricky situation with the tyres and he completed a very controlled drive to win our first Austrian Grand Prix".

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen finished a close second, with team mate Vettel third against expectations after a grid penalty had demoted him to sixth on the grid. This took place during the virtual safety vehicle period when Valtteri Bottas retired. "So, yeah, fantastic that they all came over here", he said.

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

Trump says he's interviewed four candidates for Supreme Court
The Maine senator said there are names on Trump's list of potential nominees she couldn't support, whom she declined to identify. However, the senator later said she would be looking to precedent in her vote on Supreme Court nominees, suggesting Roe v.

"It was important for Red Bull to have a works status. We are all delighted for him". "It's a good run we are having now but we still a bit more engine power and then we can definitely be in the mix". "Very hard to manage the tyres, lot of blistering, but we manged to hang on", he said. "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". "I think the pace was very good, tyre management was very good".

"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. "We had three runs and I was just punching a hole for everyone and I think if you've got one run each, fair enough but I'm not that happy that's all".

Team boss Christian Horner said Verstappen had "absolutely nailed it". I'm disappointed how the day went.

"It [the blistering] wasn't predicted coming into the race, but it is hot today and the load in these last two right corners, they are massive the amount of energy these tyres have to take up around there", Horner told Sky.

Ricciardo then pitted at the same time Vettel squeezed beyond Hamilton on the 39th of the 71 race laps. Ricciardo also ended the race prematurely, with a gearbox issue forcing him into retirement.
