Bruising Sunday ends a difficult weekend in Spielberg
Lewis Hamilton finished seventh and George Russell eighth in the Austrian Grand Prix.
Lining up P5 and P11 respectively, both Lewis and George began the race on the medium compound tyre, with Lewis gaining a position on the opening lap to move up to P4.
Both drivers took advantage of a Virtual Safety Car period on lap 14 to switch onto the hard compound tyre, gaining a few positions in the process.
As the second stint wore on, Lewis and George battled hard against cars with superior race pace with Lewis being given a five-second time penalty for track limits infringements.
George made his second stop on lap 42 for the medium tyre, with Lewis doing so a lap later and serving his penalty. As the second stops cycled through, Lewis held P7 and George P8, positions they would keep until the chequered flag.
After a tough weekend, focus moves immediately to next weekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
