Daniel Ricciardo upset with team, and his teammate, after F1 qualifying in Austria

Daniel Ricciardo blames miscommunication for testy exchange with Verstappen in Austrian GP qualifier

To win in a Red Bull vehicle at the Red Bull Ring is something I never imagined would happen this morning.

Hamilton then, somewhat unexpectedly, pitted after 25 laps and emerged fourth, ahead of his direct title rival Vettel, but the defending champion was unhappy.

There was a strategy error on the part of the Mercedes team, who opted not to pit Hamilton during the Virtual Safety Car period that was necessitated by the fact that Bottas' car was beached at a slightly less and ideal spot.

Ricciardo's teammate Verstappen, who started fourth, held off a late charge from Kimi Raikkonen in the other Ferrari to celebrate his fourth career victory and first of the season.

"To win here in Austria with him in attendance, because he doesn't come to many races, it's fantastic, and for the Dutch fans as well".

British media reacts as England advance to World Cup quarter finals
The Three Lions had gone in front in the 57th minute thanks to a spot kick from captain and leading goalscorer Harry Kane . England won the game 4-3 on penalties after full time scores ended 1-1.

Only 14 cars finished the race, Mercedes' championship leader and pole sitter both retired with mechanical issues and it was not the straight-up one-stop grand prix that have led to many a boring Sunday afternoon drive. "Today was a really good day for me and I just hope we can continue like this". But I think the pace was very good, the tyre management was very good.

"I think again the margins in Formula 1 are so fine, you saw there was a touch at Turn 3 with Kimi, a touch at Turn 7, a few races ago that could've been a puncture and it would've been a different story", Horner said.

"I needed to catch up with the points".

The Australian had run second before a blister on his left-rear tyre dropped him back and prompted another pitstop.

Both their days went from bad to worse in a matter of laps, however, with Ricciardo retiring with a broken gearbox on lap 53 and Hamilton's power unit forcing him to stop 10 tours later. On lap 53, he pitted again for super-softs, dropping a place to fifth behind Ricciardo, who nearly immediately slowed and stopped.
