Austrian Grand Prix Race Report:



Max Verstappen's last lap overtake over Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in turn three led to Red Bull’s home race in Austria.
 

Back to back wins for Danish Max Verstappen and Red Bull-Honda in Red Bull ring here in Austria, and teammate Pierre Gasly also improves from his grid start from ninth to seventh in race-day.

Two big things happened today which were:

1. Red Bull’s Japanese engine supplier Honda finally gets win to its name after Max Verstappen’s win in Austria today.

2. At last a new winner in 2019 F1 season after fans were bored with no competition at all over the giants Mercedes AMG who went on to win eight races in a row but not today because one thing was sure that F1 was going see a new race winner this season after Lewis and Valtteri were stuck in their respective positions of third and fifth so, German flags were waved in this race weekend following a poor performance in qualifying also.
 
In bottom table fight almost everyone performed good as McLaren got a back to back double point finish and the best team was Alfa Romeo Racing because they got a double point in Austria today (Kimi Räikkönen’s ninth and Antonio Giovinazzi’s tenth) after a strong qualifying as both went through Q3.
After three points finishes for Renault in Monaco, Canada, and France GP but not today as the duo of Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg misses out for points as both get twelfth, thirteenth respectively.
Same like Renault, Racing Point BWT team also missed out for points but experienced driver Sergio Perez was so close this for points in Austria because his story was worth mentioning because he failed to made it qualifying 2 and achieved fifteenth place in qualifying but in raceday Perez improved drastically as he jumped three place high to eleventh and missed out for point by just one place.

Haas-Ferrari today got their second three races of zero point run as Haas now have failed to score points in Canada, France and in Austria, today and before this American F1 team had failed thrice in a row in second, third, fourth race of the season (Bahrain, China, and Azerbaijan).
The last team on the table are ROKiT Williams who definitely missed out for points the whole season and also today but the worst thing they did was recording their lowest finish of the season as veteran Williams driver Robert Kubica finished in 20th place.

Top five Constructors position remained unchanged and the top driver position got changed after Verstappen overtook Sebastian Vettel third place and pushed Vettel to fourth.
