If it was George Russell who won the Austrian Grand Prix this Sunday, his second career victory after Brazil in 2022, everyone will especially remember the battle between Max Verstappen et Lando Norris.

A battle that turned into tragedy. After trying several times to overtake the Dutchman, the Englishman saw his rival squeeze him once again. But this time, one too many. While trying to go around the outside at turn 3 to better prepare for his restart, Lando Norris saw Max Verstappen close the door on him. Contact was then inevitable at 64e turn.

The three-time world champion suffered a front-left puncture but managed to return to the pits and finish 5e, despite a 10-second penalty. Lando Norris also had a puncture but the delamination of his tire caused serious damage to his MCL38 forcing him to retire.

As a result, it was George Russell who took the lead in the Austrian Grand Prix to win.
