Lewis Hamilton wins Styrian Grand Prix in Mercedes one-two

Six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton dominated the Styrian Grand Prix in a Mercedes one-two yesterday to celebrate his 85th Formula One win and move a step closer to Michael Schumacher's record of 91 victories. His teammate Valtteri Bottas, winner of last weekend's...

It was another day to forget for four-time world champion Vettel, however.Starting from 10th on the grid, the German was ahead on the opening lap when Leclerc launched his attack, an ill-judged move that ruined the race for both men.The Monegasque, who started from 14th, attempted to push past his teammate on the inside of Turn Three, but rode the kerbs and instead launched his vehicle into the rear of Vettel's machine, tearing off the rear wing.

Vettel was forced to pit and retire after a safety car was deployed. Leclerc pitted for repairs and continued, but he also pulled out once the action resumed - resulting in both men being out of the race before the start of the sixth lap."I am sorry and I apologise to Seb and I know it is not enough at times like this," he told broadcaster Sky Sports.

"I hope I learn and come back stronger next race - it is a tough time for the team and they don't need that - I put all thoughts of the team in a bin and I am sorry. I was too optimistic this move."A disappointed Vettel could only say:"There was nothing I could do. There was not enough space on the track and that is why we collided."
