Leclerc wins Austrian Grand Prix after Sainz retires


FROMHarles Leclerc won Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday and resumed the battle for World Drivers’ Championship.

Max Verstappen crossed the finish line in second place in his team’s home Grand Prix. It was a weekend to forget another Ferrari driver. Carlos Sainz who had to retire when he finished in third place after a serious engine failure.

Lewis Hamilton took advantage of the Spaniard’s setbacks by taking his Mercedes to the podium for the third race in a row, demonstrating the progress the team has made.

George Russell was involved in an early incident with Sergio Perez causing him to receive a five-second penalty, which he served at his next pit stop. Despite this, he managed to get a P4 on his Mercedes.

Stephen Okon finished fifth in Alpine and Haas races Mike Schumacher achieved his best result, finishing 6th.

lando norris took P7 and then Kevin Magnussen, Daniel Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso who closed positions on points.

As a result, Sergio Perez had to write off his Red Bull, which means that three cars did not finish, Sainz and Nicholas Latifi being different.

It was a race that Alpha Tauris forgot because Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda were only able to get P15 and 16 respectively for their team in Austria.

It seemed like a lot of cars were struggling with tire degradation at the Red Bull Ring and that was a problem for Max Verstappen.

He started the poll after winning the sprint on Saturday but ended up having to settle for second place on Sunday.
