Vettel denies Hamilton in final Austrian GP practice

Verstappen wins Austrian GP, furious Hamilton retires

It's fantastic to win here with Red Bull at the Red Bull ring and with so many Dutch fans.

The four-times world champion has been critical of the difficulty to overtake that the current generation of cars present but said the sport is heading in the right direction but that greater competition at the front remained key as F1 considers new regulations for 2021.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel came second and third, with the German taking back the lead in the championship from Lewis Hamilton.

As Cavani struggled to get off the field, the Portugal captain stepped forward to help him towards the dugout. Two goals - one in each half from Edinson Cavani - gave Uruguay a 2-1 win over Portugal .

While Valtteri Bottas started on pole, Hamilton took the lead at Turn 1 and looked well placed for victory until his teammate retired with a loss of hydraulic pressure, bringing out a Virtual Safety Car.

"The development race is always tight and up until now, we haven't had a lot of development parts on the auto", Hamilton said. I lost a little bit more time at the stop, so for us it was pretty much damage limitation.

When asked if things needed to change at his team, Hamilton said: "I'm not going to lie, all areas we are going to have to work on". I have every confidence in my team that we'll be able to bounce back. Still, there are chances for passing if the drivers feel fearless on the brakes and those yellow sausage kerbs have caused a lot of damage to expensive cars this weekend. The auto has been great all weekend - we were the quickest - but to have two different faults on each vehicle, which is very unusual, we really can't throw away points.

Mercedes' chief strategist James Vowles came on the radio as the bearer of bad news, admitting his error as Hamilton struggled to comprehend what had happened. "I anticipate it being probably one of the closest qualifying sessions that we've had this season".

"I'm looking forward to experiencing it and trying to figure out where those improvements are on the circuit". As always, he was brutally honest with himself and with everyone and we could have all done a better job this weekend. It is very rare we have these DNFs, and incredibly unusual to have two on one weekend. A real shame because we had a great vehicle and were looking very strong, but we will live to fight another day.

Germany apologise to fans after World Cup ouster
This kind of blind rage fueled by your team having an very bad match four years ago is what the World Cup is really all about. Clearly we expected this to be a long tournament for us.
