The first 30 seconds of Max Verstappen's Austrian Grand Prix could not have gone much worse. He bogged down at the start, later suggesting it was because the clutch was set too aggressively, so the anti-stall kicked in and he dropped to seventh. That became eighth when he was boxed in behind Sebastian Vettel's Ferrari at Turn 2 and his Red Bull team-mate Pierre Gasly drove around the outside of him.
Verstappen then locked up the front-right tyre going into Turn 4, giving him a vibration that would remain throughout the first stint. But just over 80 minutes later, he took the chequered flag to win on home soil for Red Bull - and take the landmark first victory of Honda's fourth stint in Formula 1.
The success wasn't confirmed until three hours after the finish, the result of a lengthy stewards' investigation that resulted in no penalty.
