Lewis Hamilton claimed his first race victory of the season, leading from pole to the chequered flag at the Styrian Grand Prix. The defending world champion came into the race weekend on the back of a disappointing fourth-place finish in the Austrian Grand Prix, but Hamilton made amends with a well-managed victory from start to finish. There was drama in the opening lap when Charles Leclerc collided with teammate Sebastian Vettel, causing severe damage on the two Ferraris that ultimately saw both cars retire from the race. A duel between Max Verstappen and Hamilton never materialised, with Valtteri Bottas passing the Red Bull a few laps from the end to complete a Mercedes one-two. Meanwhile, Lando Norris provided some more final lap drama, passing the two Racing Point cars of Lance Stroll and Sergio Perez to claim fifth place. Bottas’ second place finish keeps him top of the drivers’ championship after two races, with Hamilton now off the mark with his first race win of 2020.
