Q: (Daniel Horvath - Motorspormania.hu) Max, congratulations, you've got nearly 20,000 Dutch supporters here in Austria.

"The risk I see is if the FIA and promoter aren't fully aligned we end up with compromises and vanilla-type regulations", he said.

Horner said the ever-smiling Ricciardo suited Red Bull's brand image and was a popular member of a team set to trade Renault engines for Honda power next year.

Red Bull turned down Max Verstappen's Renault Formula 1 engine during the Austrian Grand Prix as it feared the race victor may suffer a repeat of Daniel Ricciardo's retirement. 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.

I have never been in a situation like that before but I felt like I had to score after the header I missed at the end. Another tweeted: "The more I see of Mr Southgate, the more impressive he gets". "It was a nervous one".

Horner also heaped praise on Verstappen's early charge in the opening lap where he passed the Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen into Turn 7 which involved slight contact between the two drivers, a move which ultimately led to the race victory. Romain Grosjean was fourth ahead of his Ferrari-powered Haas team-mate Kevin Magnussen, Esteban Ocon and his Force India team-mate Sergio Perez.

Sauber recorded is first double-points-finish since 2015 thanks to Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson's ninth and 10th places. Horner says the team is being realistic about where it can compete this season but has no doubts it can stay in the hunt. "Today was definitely a very good day for me". "This weekend it was Daniel's turn to drive out of the garage first". We really had to look after them - there was a lot of blistering. Sebastian Vettel's third place allowed him to overtake Hamilton at the top of the rankings.

Mercedes's chief strategist James Vowles came on the radio as the bearer of bad news, admitting his error as Hamilton struggled to comprehend what the team had done. "My gearbox is gone", he told the team.

Verstappen hit the front after Mercedes kept Hamilton out on track during a virtual safety auto period that followed Bottas's retirement, with the other contenders pitting for fresh tyres. "It's my mistake. Do what you can", replied Mercedes strategist James Vowles. With Hamilton failing to score, Vettel regained the championship lead 146-145.

Their problems handed the first win on their home track to Red Bull, for whom Verstappen drove beautifully to control the race once Mercedes hit their problems, well out of reach of the pursuing Ferraris. "I don't get it guys".

He said: "Position on the grid is proving more and more crucial because it is harder for us to overtake". In fact, the left rear tyre that was initially critical, was operating at a cooler temperature than the right.

"And the rear left is the one that takes all the load". On lap 53, he pitted again for super-softs, dropping a place to fifth behind Ricciardo, who nearly immediately slowed and stopped.
