Ricciardo set to stay at Red Bull, says Horner

Ricciardo set to stay at Red Bull, says Horner

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said it had been an "unbelievable drive" by Verstappen both to win and to protect his tyres on the hot tarmac.

Max Verstappen on his way to victory in Austria.

"I think it was good racing all around".

As well as Hamilton's retirement, the Dutchman benefited from a tactical blunder by Mercedes, who failed to send their drivers in for a pit stop when the virtual safety auto was deployed on lap 14.

"It was important for Red Bull to have a works status".

It ultimately proved costly when the VSC ended, as Hamilton did not have a big enough lead over Verstappen, Ricciardo, and Raikkonen to stay ahead of them when it came time for him to pit. After a few low-key affairs in recent weeks the second race in Formula One's first ever triple header delivered much more than expected. Hamilton was unhappy before his late retirement complaining to his team that "we've just thrown away a win", by bungling the timing of a tyre change. "It can be very, very cruel and I think we had all the cruelty go against us today".

"It was very good to manage the tyres as well".

Q: (Scott Mitchell - Autosport) Max and Kimi; although the race was 71 laps long, it was effectively decided by the move at turn seven on a frenetic opening lap.

Verstappen had a four-second lead to Ricciardo when he took over the lead and grew his advantage until his teammate, with a blister on his left rear tyre, fell behind Raikkonen.

"Max did a very mature job in managing the tires, particularly through Turns 8 and 9, the last two, the fast-right handers". "It's a shame, we had a great auto today".

Unsafe heat wave hitting US over Fourth of July weekend
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded and air-conditioned areas. A cold front will push across Wisconsin Sunday afternoon and evening bringing a chance for thunderstorms.

"So I think there is a chance in both championships and we certainly haven't written anything off at this point in the year".

"It was a good result for the team".

Red Bull looked to be third-best in terms of race pace based on the long-run data gathered on Friday, but the warmer weather brought them into the mix come race day and their good reactions with regards strategy were crucial.

"Obviously it would've been nice to start further up", he said.

"A positive day, but it could have been better - but a very well-deserved win for Max".

The Dutchman endured a torrid start to the season littered with errors and mistakes.

Esteban Ocon was sixth for Force India, ahead of Mexican team mate Sergio Perez, with McLaren's Fernando Alonso completing a remarkable afternoon with eighth place after starting in the pit lane.

Sauber recorded is first double-points-finish since 2015 thanks to Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson's ninth and 10th places.

The triple-header of consecutive French, Austrian and British races concludes next week at Silverstone with the championship now fascinatingly poised.
