71/71

VERSTAPPEN WINS! A dramatic and brilliant victory, but there is a stewards' investigation to come... There could be late drama here. Bottas in third, Vettel fourth, and Hamilton in fifth..

70/71 

Hamilton is pushed behind by Vettel, on the fresher tires. A fifth place finish is a huge disappointment.

69/71 

Verstappen is ahead! Three laps left, and he's taken almost all of the race to improve upon his lap. Verstappen and Leclerc nudge one another into the corner, and Leclerc is outraged.

68/71 

Wheel to wheel with Vertsappen, Vettel and his DRS-assisted rival are battling for the points as the Dutch crowd roar him on.

67/71 

Leclerc has no pace advantage, and is driving purely defensively now.

66/71 

Leclerc, told he is a second away from Verstappen, reponds to his team: "Leave me alone".

66/71 

A 1.2 second gap between Leclerc and Verstappen.

63/71 

A potential problem for the Mercedes.

62/71 

10 laps to go. Verstappen is fewer than four seconds off Leclerc.

57/71 

Whatever that problem was, he and the team have managed to fix it, because he powers past Bottas into second. Six seconds off the front.

56/71 

Verstappen complains that he's losing power!

54/71 

Bottas' lead over Verstappen is only a second or so, so he'll be making another move soon to get back to his starting position.

50/71 

Verstappen is up into third, gliding past Vettel with DRS assistance from third place. Vettel responds by switching to soft compounds... Vettel is unable to come out ahead of Hamilton.

49/71 

Verstappen's side tells him to get a move on.

48/71 

Ricciardo has now pitted. He's back in 14th.

47/71 

Verstappen has been told he has an advantage of speed over Vettel on turn one, perhaps suggesting where he will make his move.

44/71 

Verstappen is currently the man with the fastest lap... taking it back from Sainz. Verstappen is closing in on Vettel.

42/71 

Sainz has pitted now - here's his performance until then. That late stop could well help him.

38/71 

Oh, Ricciardo is up into eventh now, with Sainz - having made up 13 places this race - into sixth.

37/71 

Leclrec is five seconds ahead of Bottas.

35/71 

Here is Hamilton's old wing.

30/71 

Hamilton is going to pit to change his front wing. A tire-only pitstop is a few seconds, this one is 11. He makes his way down the exit, Vettel takes him, as does Bottas and Leclrec. He's fifth.

29/71 

Verstappen is eating into Hamilton's lead, and if that needs changing it could cost him 12 seconds. Bottas, on hard, probably doesn't need a swap.

28/71 

Hamilton complains over a lack of downforce, and there's a front wing out in the pits if necessary.

26/71 

This was Vettel's problem.

24/71 

Hamilton has been told to push it, with the driver saying his tires are still good. He has an eight second lead over Vertsappen.

23/71 

A standard stop for Leclerc, but Vettel is now down in eighth before most of the stops.

22/71 

Vettel came in to hold up Bottas, who both stopped in the pits for their tires, but Vettel's stop was 6.5 seconds, and Bottas was around half that, which made it all a bit of a wash.

20/71 

It seems like we'll get little action in the top four until the teams sort out their pitstop strategy.

16/71 

Magnussen's drive-through penalty has him in 20th, almost 30 seconds behind Kubica.

14/71 

Norris is back in seventh after edging Raikkonen out of his way and getting back his position.

14/71 

Leclerc is now asking his side when he can start pushing, and the team have told him just to continue as he goes.

12/71 

Here is roughly where we stand.

11/71 

Christian Horner blames anti-stall for problems with Vertssappen's getaway at the lights.

10/71 

Bottas is now two and a half sesconds back. Hamilton five and a half. Verstappen, meanwhile, has moved into fifth.

7/71 

Norris is complaining that Raikkonen forced him off the track during a takeover, but the stewards aren't interested in the point he's making. Verstappen climbs back into sixth.

5/71 

Vertsappen is complaining about his car's battery malfunctioning - calling it 'clipping'.

4/71 

Vettel takes Norris for fourth, and Norris - now back with DRS - is attacking back almost straight away.

2/71 

Vettel in ahead of Verstappen, who is down in seventh now.

1/71

Norris, Raikkon, Bottas and Hamilton slip past Verstappen. Norris and Hamilton battle it for third, with Bottas taking second. Even Gasly has taken Verstappen now, and Leclrec extends his lead unencumbered. Raikkonen is attacking Verstappen now. Bottas in second.

14:10 

It is flip hot in Austria.

14:05 

Here's the formation lap.

13:50 

Here's Kimi Raikkonen chipping in.

13:45 

The big news, obviously, is that neither Lewis Hamilton nor Valtteri Bottas are on pole. In fact, both of them are on the second row after Charles Leclerc grabbed pole.

13:45 

A reminder of the grid.
