Austrian GP: Max Verstappen wins with a mega performance, young guns shine

Max Verstappen wins after a superb drive, after a compromised start which seemed to ruin his race. He overtook Charles Leclerc, who led all of the race till then, on the penultimate lap. The overtake is under investigation as it looked as if Max shoved Charles out of the track. But let’s not take anything away from the drive put in by Max after first stop. It was similar to what Ricciardo did in China last year with his fresher tyres.

Austrian GP is the story of the young stars that are going to carry F1 ahead. So much action in this race alone which can put the whole season combined to shame. Kudos to McLaren whose both driver ended up in top ten. Super drive by Norris put him at 6th seven seconds ahead of Red Bull of Pierre Gasly. Antonio Giovinazzi got his first point of the season. Carlos Sainz had a great pace after first stops and quickly got post most midfield runners and finished 8th.

This weekend had all the spices and flavours of a great F1 race and this certainly helps strengthen the waning popularity of F1. We look forward to such weekends.
