Verstappen form shows he's 'kept his head' after rough patch - Horner

Formula One Grand Prix Friday free practise sessions Lewis Hamilton Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 W08 EQ Energy

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner took his hat off to Max Verstappen for achieving an unbelievable drive in which the young Dutchman showed that he was an old head on a young pair of shoulders.

Friday, F1 championship leader Lewis Hamilton Topped the time-sheets with a lap of 1 min, 4.839 secs in the 1rst practice session at the 2018 Austrian Grand Prix at Spielberg.

Mercedes's chief strategist James Vowles came on the radio as the bearer of bad news, admitting his error as Hamilton struggled to comprehend what the team had done.

"This year they came back and they got a victory".

"In this particular instance it was James showing an extremely broad pair of shoulders, standing up and saying "that's my mistake, Lewis, and I'm very sorry for it". He did it in his first win in Barcelona. Verstappen's Red Bull team-mate Australian Daniel Ricciardo was also forced to retire on his 29th birthday.

However, he missed a penalty in a 1-1 draw with Iran and failed to score in his side's 2-1 defeat by Uruguay in their last-16 encounter.

But following the latest talks that took place ahead of and over the Red Bull Ring weekend, it now appears that only a few details are missing before Ricciardo commits to staying.

"I think the vehicle has been quite good today", he said.

He was passed by Ricciardo for the place on lap nine, but a solid stint on the soft-compound tyre after his pit stop ensured he could capitalise on the misfortune around him and guarantee his fifth podium of the season.

France's Romain Grosjean scored his first points of the season with a bang, finishing a lapped fourth for the USA -owned Haas team, who also had Denmark's Kevin Magnussen taking the chequered flag in fifth.

"From my side I felt in control, I was driving to the best I could with the vehicle I had and at the end we were struggling a little more than Ferrari with the tyre blistering but we managed to stay ahead".

Sebastian Vettel finished third to reverse Hamilton's 14-point drivers championship lead and seize a razor-thin one-point advantage. "That's why he obviously started to back off a bit".

"I tried to manage, I could see my tyres opening up".

F1 2018's second-youngest driver claimed his fourth career win on a day the whole field suffered with unexpected levels of tyre blistering after temperatures rocketed on Sunday in the Styrian mountains.

Qualifying begins at 2:00p BST Saturday, 30 June, and the race starts at its now traditional time of 2.10p BST.
