Valtteri Bottas has won the Austrian Grand Prix ahead of Sebastian Vettel, with Lewis Hamilton missing out on a place on the podium.

The Finn fought off stiff competition from Vettel to lead from start to finish at the Red Bull Ring, claiming just the second grand prix triumph of his career.

There was also a battle going on between third and fourth, where Daniel Ricciardo was able to hold off Hamilton to complete the podium as the Brit lost more ground on Vettel in the drivers' championship.

Vettel now leads Hamilton - who began the race in eighth - at the top of the championship by 20 points, while his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen crossed the line in fifth.

Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso crashed out in a dramatic first lap which also saw Vettel accuse Bottas of a jump start, although the Finn was later cleared by stewards.
