Calm Verstappen wins Austrian GP on bleak day for Mercedes

Lewis Hamilton wins the French Grand Prix

Verstappen's victory was Red Bull's first at the Red Bull Ring since the circuit returned to the F1 calendar four years ago.

An unhappy Lewis Hamilton looked for positives on Sunday after suffering his first retirement of the season and losing his lead in the drivers' championship at the Austrian Grand Prix.

While Barcelona saw Hamilton and then teammate Nico Rosberg collide in 2016, Mercedes has not had a double retirement due to reliability issues as a constructor since the 1955 Italian Grand Prix.

The podium finish has pushed Vettel back in the championship lead over Hamilton by a single point.

Profiting from the mishap to Mercedes and Red Bull's Ricciardo, Romain Grosjean steered his Haas into fourth place, giving the USA team its best finish in a F1 race.

When Bottas went out on lap 14 after losing hydraulic pressure, Red Bull and Ferrari were quick to take advantage of the reduced pace on the track during the virtual safety auto period and got all their cars to the box for a tire swap.

That meant Ricciardo was giving the 20-year-old Dutch driver, who is seen by many as a future world champion, the benefit of a "tow" while the Australian's auto took the aerodynamic hit.

While Hamilton struggled to remain in the top contention, Ricciardo faced issues with his left-rear tyre that developed a blister. "We've just thrown away a win", said Hamilton.

Germany v South Korea
Following their match against Sweden, Mexico's faithful turned their attention to the end of South Korea's game in Kazan. VAR confirmed there was nothing wrong with Kim's precise finish after the linesperson initially flagged for offside.

Amazon to Acquire PillPack
There's a reason shares of CVS , Walgreens , and Rite Aid were tumbling Thursday, and it can be summed up in one word: Amazon . PillPack is pitched as a way to bring convenience to people who take multiple medications every day.

"This is James, I have thrown away the win today", replied Vowles. "All you can see is the guy in front and the guy behind". "You're a bit blind because the race is long and there was more than 50 laps to go on the same tires, so I tried to do all that and I think most of it I got more or less right but I think it could also have been a bit better today without the plus three from the start but that's what it was". The most important thing is to understand why an error happens and go back into the situation and analyse.

On lap 53, he pitted again for super-softs, dropping a place to fifth behind Ricciardo, who nearly immediately slowed and stopped.

But the race turned from frustration to disaster for defending world champion Lewis Hamilton, who was forced to retire on lap 63 with a fuel pressure problem. Sebastian Vettel (GER/Ferrari) 3.181,4.

Hamilton was the only frontrunner not to pit when his teammate Valtteri Bottas triggered the VSC.

Montreal's Lance Stroll finished 13th. Starting from the pitlane, McLaren's Fernando Alonso ran as far as 19th in the early laps, only to finish eighth with the VSC and a late charge helping the cause. Charles Leclerc (MON/Sauber-Ferrari) one lap, 10.

Williams driver Sergey Sirotkin had set his personal best first sector when the yellow flags hit in the middle sector, meaning he ended up 18th after three runs.

Stoffel Vandoorne was quickest of the drivers eliminated in Q1 thanks to Stroll's last-minute lap relegating him to 16th place.
