F1 Austrian Grand Prix – Start time, how to watch, & more

The Red Bull driver dominated the second sprint race of the season to convert his qualifying pole position into top spot on the grid for Sunday’s grand prix, and picked up the maximum eight points for the sprint race win. 

Verstappen’s charge was aided by the Ferrari pair of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz battling each other for second place, with the Monegasque driver holding out to retain his front row spot.

While George Russell enjoyed a lonely sprint race to fourth place for Mercedes, Sergio Perez pulled off an impressive comeback to go from 13th to fifth place having been given a grid drop for exceeding track limits during his best Q2 lap.

Alpine’s Esteban Ocon claimed sixth place, while team-mate Fernando Alonso failed to start the sprint because his F1 car went “full blackout”, as Kevin Magnussen kept clear of Lewis Hamilton to take seventh. 

It meant Mick Schumacher missed out on the sprint race points positions in ninth, but felt his battle against Hamilton “shouldn’t have happened” as he wanted Haas team orders to swap him with Magnussen. 

Away from the sprint race, Sebastian Vettel was given a suspended €25,000 fine by the FIA for storming out of the F1 drivers’ briefing on Friday after a heated exchange over the current implementation of rules and officiating in the series.
