Austrian F1 Grand Prix LIVE: UK start time, sprint results, live stream & how to follow the race Red Bull Ring – Max Verstappen on pole with Charles Leclerc second, Lewis Hamilton eighth


The Formula 1 grid is in Austria this weekend after the hugely dramatic British Grand Prix last time out.

The Silverstone race saw a terrifying crash on the first lap before protesters raced onto the track shortly after as Carlos Sainz finally took a great win.

Lewis Hamilton, who finished on the podium in his home race, initially defended the actions of fans who stormed the circuit.

Hearing about the protest, Mercedes driver Hamilton, a staunch environmentalist, said: “Make the protesters grow. I love people fighting for the planet and we need more people like them.

However, Hamilton later took to social media to make a slight U-turn after learning all the details surrounding the incident.

He added: “Please don’t jump onto our race tracks to protest, we don’t want to put you at risk.”

It remains to be seen if similar scenes will break out in Austria as Red Bull seek to recover from a frustrating Silverstone for their home race.

Austrian Grand Prix: what do we say?

Verstappen: “There was a lot of orange smoke [from the fans] at the end which was nice to see.

“We were really close so it was good and like a sprint should be – pretty flat out.

“I expect it to be an interesting battle again.

“The car is good and there are just a few things that need to be tweaked. But overall we were really competitive this weekend.

Leclerc said: “It was tricky.

“I had a little argument with Carlos. I started pushing and I was winning over Max.

“Hopefully we can put a little more pressure on him.”
