F1 Austrian GP LIVE: Hamilton starts eighth as Leclerc needs to beat Verstappen

Hello and welcome to Express Sport‘s live coverage of this year’s Austrian Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen has performed well at the Red Bull Ring in previous seasons and will be aiming to secure yet another victory ahead of Charles Leclerc at the end of today’s 71-lap contest.

The Ferrari driver will be equally desperate to take the chequered flag, though, as he looks to revive his fading hopes of Drivers’ Championship glory by chipping away at the gap to Verstappen this afternoon.

Lewis Hamilton, meanwhile, will have a difficult job to secure a podium finish from eighth place on the grid after his lacklustre showing in Saturday’s sprint event.

We’ll be on hand to keep you updated with all the day’s running in Austria, with the five red lights set to go out in just over an hour’s time.
