Max Verstappen won the 2018 Austrian Grand Prix today. It was Verstappen's 4th F1 victory and the 58th win for the Red Bull Racing team.

All cars started off clean. Kimi Raikkonen who started from 3rd in the Ferrari had the best start and was able to get between both Mercedes cars.

In the first lap we saw a lot of overtaking by several drivers. Raikkonen and Verstappen overtook Valtteri Bottas between turn 1 and 2 then Bottas passed Raikkonen and Verstappen back in the braking zone of turn 3 to get P2. Then in turn 4 Verstappen passed Raikkonen with a touch for P3.

In lap 11 Nico Hulkenberg blew up his engine and retired his Renault RS18 from the race. A few laps later it was Valtteri Bottas who retired his Mercedes W09 due to an hydraulic problem and gave Verstappen P2.

The retirement of Bottas causes a Virtual Safety Car period in which both Red Bull pit to get rid of their Supersoft tyres and get yellow Soft tyres. Mercedes makes an error by not pitting Lewis Hamilton during the VSC.
