Spielberg: Max Verstappen won Red Bull's home Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday while Lewis Hamilton suffered his first race retirement since 2016 and lost the Formula One championship lead to Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.

"The tyres are very sensitive and it can happen in the first five laps, if you're too aggressive, the tyre starts to open up and the damage is done". 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.

The victory was the 20-year-old driver's first of the season, and fourth of his career.

"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.

- Verstappen revealed: "If you want to win a race this is the ideal place, in a Red Bull auto at the Red Bull Ring".

- Sadly for Ricciardo, he had to retire with an exhaust problem and then Hamilton's auto lost power soon after to leave Verstappen in prime position to claim victory.

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

Portugal ousted by a superior version
Right from the beginning of the match, both teams played attacking football and tried hard to gain an early advantage. Cavani's double accounted for Portugal as Uruguay won their last-16 clash in Sochi 2-1 on Saturday night.

"I think what's concerning for us, Mercedes and Ferrari recently look like they've made a good step as well".

A grim-faced Daniel Ricciardo showed how upset he felt Saturday by claiming Red Bull had treated him unfairly in qualifying at the Austrian Grand Prix. "I was going in front last weekend in Paul Riccard, he was going the race before that in front so we just discuss that and this was his weekend to go in front".

"Max had a great first lap", he added. "We can all understand there is a financial reality that needs to be respected". He managed to get through 57 laps on the super soft tyre to be just outside the top 10, with a pit stop needed to get home, when his gear box failed.

Vettel took advantage of the bad luck of others to make the podium and his result was made even better when Hamilton pulled over on lap 64.

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

Force India's Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez finished sixth and seventh, separated by less than two seconds, and McLaren's Fernando Alonso picked up four points in eighth.

The reigning champions had not been beaten in Austria since the race returned to the calendar in 2014 and seemed to be heading for a one-two when Valtteri Bottas retired with an hydraulics failure on lap 14.
