Mercedes welcome Red Bull's Honda deal

5:06                                            Toto Wolff felt pleased with the opening practice session of the Austrian GP after Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas

"We are all having the challenge of seeking additional income, and that has been equally hard for Liberty", Wolff said. "We need to find a bulletproof method to move forward for strategy because if our vehicle had kept going it was an easy win for us, we were comfortably ahead".

"To win here in Austria with him in attendance, because he doesn't come to many races, it's fantastic, and for the Dutch fans as well".

"I think in general it was not the best day but there is still room for improvement".

How did Verstappen do it?

"A positive day, but it could have been better - but a very well-deserved win for Max".

Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas were fastest in practice on Friday for the Austrian Formula One Grand Prix after an upgrade to the aerodynamics of their cars paid off.

"It's a dream result, a Red Bull auto, Max driving, an unbelievable race and it was absolutely nailed in the first lap", enthused Horner after the race, speaking to Sky F1.

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. Can I just get your respective thoughts on the move - we don't normally see overtaking there?

But the Warriors obtained Kevin Durant after that loss and Golden State has gone 8-1 against the Cavs in the two NBA Finals since. San Antonio Spurs superstar Kawhi Leonard remains as one of the hottest commodities on the trade market this offseason.

"He was keeping the rear left cooler than the rear right and the rear left here is the one that takes all the load".

"He is constantly asking for information, managing those tyres". Ricciardo also ended the race prematurely, with a gearbox issue forcing him into retirement.

"We had great speed, the difference was made with the tyres today, which worked well".

"But if they say "you have to drive in front for all qualifying" you have to do it. It can be very, very cruel and I think we had all the cruelty go against us today". So I think you'd have to consider us as an outside contender.

Responding to a question about Liberty Media's performance since it assumed control of F1's commercial rights in late 2016, Horner praised its work in improving the experience for fans but called the planned 2021 changes "by far" the biggest challenge it will face.

Naturally, Hamilton was none too pleased with the fact that Mercedes had scuppered his race strategy, but there was little to be done about it.

Not only was Red Bull's victory from fourth on the grid unexpected, it represented the team's first at their own circuit in five attempts.

It comes as Sky Sports quoted Horner again declaring he expects his team to re-sign Ricciardo before the sport's European summer break after the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 29.
