Max Verstappen has expanded his Formula 1 championship lead with his fifth win of the season. The Red Bull driver from the Netherlands won the Austrian Grand Prix ahead of Vice World Champion Valtteri Bottas in a Mercedes and Lando Norris in a McLaren. World champion Lewis Hamilton crossed the finish line in fourth place.
The Telegraph: “Hamilton should have finished second at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, but crossed the finish line in fourth.”
The Guardian: “‘Campione! * Chanted the Dutch fans at the Red Bull Ring when Max Verstappen took a sober, flawless victory at the Austrian Grand Prix. It may seem a bit premature to conclude that the title race is in your hands of the Red Bull driver, but in this form and given the fact that his title rival Lewis Hamilton is once again bobbing in fourth place, they could have a long party until the season finale in Abu Dhabi. ”
Kronen Zeitung: “King Verstappen puts together the Spielberg double pack.”
Kurier: “And Hamilton didn’t have a good day. While Verstappen drove away, the 36-year-old had to be content with fourth place. The Dutchman finally celebrated his 15th career success, the fifth this season and the third in Result. With four wins in Spielberg, he also advanced to become the record winner in Austria. ”
