George Russell handed Austrian GP win after Max Verstappen and Lando Norris collide

A dramatic late collision between Max Verstappen and Lando Norris handed Mercedes' George Russell a lucky win in the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday.

Pole sitter Verstappen had to settle for fifth after leading for much of the race while Norris was forced to retire his McLaren after a tense battle between the pair for the lead.

Oscar Piastri in the other McLaren took second with Ferrari's Carlos Sainz completing the podium.

Russell said he was waiting to capitalise on any mistake, saying: "Incredible, it was a tough fight, starting in third. I was watching on the big screen and knew Lando would try and get that race win, but the team has done a great job to get us in the fight.

"You've got to be there at the end to pick up the pieces and that's where we were. We were only about 12 seconds behind and I knew it (the collision) was a possibility. You are always dreaming."

On lap 64 of 71, Norris crashed into Verstappen's Red Bull as he attempted a move for the lead with both cars suffering significant damage.

Verstappen and Norris limped back to the pits with the former able to continue after stopping for repairs. However, Norris was forced to retire.
