F1 2017: Austrian GP

The Austrian Grand Prix of the 2017 Formula 1 Championship is putting the spotlight on some of the unsung heroes of Formula 1 rather than drawing attention to the Hamilton-Vettel quagmire since last week's Azerbaijan incident. Controversy aside, Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari is more than lucky to race in this leg of the season despite further investigation by the FIA following last week's incident but the real winners of the Austrian GP are not in a surprising feat.

Mercedes-AMG's Valtteri Bottas has won the race with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel placed 2nd and Red Bull's top ace, Daniel Ricciardo placed 3rd. Those who also make it to the finish line are Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton in 4th, Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari in 5th place, and Romain Grosjean from Haas in 6th place.

Those who never made it through the race are Carlos Sainz from Toro Rosso, Haas' Kevin Magnussen, whose car suffered a hydraulic malfunction in lap 31,  Fernando Alonso from McLaren-Honda, and Max Verstappen from Red Bull, following both of their cars got knocked out by Daniil Kvyat at the start.

Despite finished 2nd, Vettel's lead against Hamilton has been widened to just 20 points in the overall standings.

Next race is on Silverstone, UK, on the 16th of July.
