Verstappen wins in Austria as Vettel grabs lead in standings

Formula One Grand Prix Friday free practise sessions Lewis Hamilton Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 W08 EQ Energy

His enthusiastic celebratory message over the radio said it all - he might look likely to be staying at Mercedes for 2019, but the Finn is in desperate need of a win to propel himself back towards the title fight.

"Dana White (UFC boss) if you're listening - I've got some work to do but maybe you can sign me in a couple of years ..." Hamilton led after getting the jump off the start, while Bottas, who fell back as far as fourth after stumbling off the line from the pole, got back to second after making a three-wide pass on the outside of Raikkonen and Verstappen entering Turn 3.

Teammate Max Verstappen topped the podium with Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel claiming second and third, respectively.

"We have a very simple policy here that has operated for the last seven years", he said.

Richard Swift (1977 - 2018), former member of the Shins
Auerbach expressed his sadness at the news of Swift's death on Twitter , writing, "I will miss you, my friend". Born in California, Swift led a prolific and varied career as a self-taught musician and producer.

At the subsequent Red Bull media debrief Ricciardo was his usual smiley self.

Red Bull turned down Max Verstappen's Renault Formula 1 engine during the Austrian Grand Prix as it feared the race victor may suffer a repeat of Daniel Ricciardo's retirement.

Several other drivers, including Hamilton and Verstappen's team-mate Daniel Ricciardo, suffered major blistering with the rear tyres over the rest of the grand prix. "Today was definitely a very good day for me". Verstappen said he had just tried to do his own race as first Bottas and then Hamilton disappeared from the reckoning.

"We had three runs and I was just punching a hole for everyone".

England fans wasted so much beer celebrating Harry Kane's goal vs. Colombia
England beat Tunisia and Panama as expected, and then lost against Belgium in the battle of the "B" teams. Keeping you up to date about what is happening in Colombia is costly and not without risk.

"From my side I felt in control, I was driving to the best I could with the vehicle I had and at the end we were struggling a little more than Ferrari with the tyre blistering but we managed to stay ahead".

The Dutch driver made the most of a bad day for Mercedes and yet another inspired strategy call from his team to emerge in the lead at the third-way point of the race in Spielberg, from there he would maintain a solid advantage until the checkered flag, finishing ahead of the two Ferraris. "I think the pace was very good, tyre management was very good". The new version should make reliability better, according to the manufacturer, but the team decided not to deploy it as Verstappen and Ricciardo would have received grid penalties for using yet another version.

Grosjean and Magnussen delivered big points for Haas after eight races of underdelivery by the team that started the season with the fourth-fastest vehicle.

Sauber duo Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson finished ninth and 10th.

I play quite easy, so I don't make a huge effort in every single shot that I play", he said. "I'm glad I had that win". I was playing a little bit too defensively for what I should have been doing. "It's all on the right track".

Formula One's unprecedented triple-header concludes next weekend (July 6-8) with the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
