Leclerc Claims Austrian GP Victory Over Verstappen

SPIELBERG, Austria — Though he didn’t start on pole, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc managed to top Red Bull’s Max Verstappen to win Sunday’s Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring. “The pace was there, at the beginning, we had some good fights with Max (Verstappen) and the end was incredibly difficult. Leclerc’s third victory of the season allowed him to jump Red Bull’s Sergio Perez to second in points, 38 markers behind Verstappen. “We were just a bit too slow today, we were doing the best we could with the strategy but the Ferraris were extremely fast,” Verstappen said. In difficult moments you need to score points and we did that today. It’s been a bit of a rough weekend for the team – but I’m grateful we got third and fourth today.
