This Sunday , he completely mastered his race during the Styrian Grand Prix and won in front of the two Mercedes unable to close the gap.
Lewis Hamilton takes the point of the fastest lap and Valtteri Bottas completes the podium. Sergio Pérez finished in fourth place just behind the Finn after coming back up strong thanks to cooler tires.
The main racing event came from the first lap. Charles Leclerc, on Ferrari hits the left rear wheel of Pierre Gasly on AlphaTauri. The French will then be forced to retire following the bursting of his tire and damage to the shock absorber.
With a broken front wing, the Monegasque pilot immediately returned to the pit lane. He came out in eighteenth place and starts a comeback that will make him finish in seventh position. He was named pilot of the day.
George Russell took the start in tenth place, which gave him hope for a first entry in the points. Unfortunately for him and his team, a reliability problem forced it to abandon. At the time of the first pit stop, the Williams driver was immobilized for long seconds due to a necessary air recharge.
