  1. Thanks and goodbye

    And that is the end of that.

    After the best race of the season, and then a three-hour delay to see if the original result stood, Max Verstappen wins the Austrian Grand Prix.

    The race had everything and it was just what the sport needed after a dull day in France a week ago.

    Hope you all enjoyed that as much as we did. Thanks for sticking with us and for all your comments.

    Next up, the tiny matter of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in two weeks' time. Can't wait.

    Until next time, bye for now.

  2. Verstappen wins thrilling Austrian GP - read the report

    Max Verstappen

    Red Bull's Max Verstappen passed Charles Leclerc with two laps remaining to win a thrilling Austrian Grand Prix. The win was only confirmed three hours after the race finished following an investigation into whether Verstappen unfairly ran Leclerc off the track.

    Ferrari's Leclerc seemed in control of the race after Verstappen made a bad start to drop from second to seventh. But Red Bull pitted Verstappen 10 laps later than Leclerc and Verstappen fought up from fourth to take the win.

    It was a sensational drive from Verstappen, making superb use of fresher tyres than the cars in front of him, but the move with which he took the lead was controversial.

    Leclerc had already fought off one pass by Verstappen on the previous lap, when the Red Bull got inside the Ferrari at Turn Three but Leclerc held on around the outside and out-accelerated him up to Turn Four.

    But on the next lap, with two to go, Verstappen again dived up the inside, and this time he ran Leclerc off the road on the exit. After both drivers were called before the stewards, the FIA, after lengthy deliberation, confirmed the result would stand.

  3. In other news...

    Sebastian Vettel managed to overtake his rival Lewis Hamilton as Hamilton locked-up into the corner and Vettel took his then-third place.

    But Hamilton, who suffered some front wing damage during the race, could only come fifth overall, one place behind Vettel.

    Don Coyte: So the race takes 82 minutes and the decision takes 182 minutes?

    Dragon Censer: Wonder if the decision would have been the same at a different track...

    John Perry: How long until the sponsors and fans start leaving?

  6. How they stand

    All this is great news as we don't have to tweak these tables. Max Verstappen up to third in the drivers' championship, but Mercedes still running away with the constructors' title.

    No penalty for Verstappen

    Marc: The correct decision.

    Jon Bishop: Why is there any debate over if the rules should be applied in F1? All sports need rules, if the rules are broken it’s cheating? If you’d prefer it to be bumper cars (hard racing) then just change the rules accordingly.

    Diddly squat: Sanity has prevailed...eventually. Disgrace how long it took.

    Philip West: Justice prevails.

    Simon H: Shouldn’t have taken so long. Rules need addressing. Need to have drivers actually racing!!

  8. The FIA have made a decision

    The FIA have made their decision and there will be no further action.

  10. 'Racing incident'

    Andrew Benson

    BBC Sport’s chief F1 writer at the Red Bull Ring

    No further action on Verstappen/Leclerc. The stewards "did not consider that either driver was wholly or predominantly to blame for the incident. We consider that this is a racing incident".

  11. Now and then

    Did the two young lads at the bottom of this Instagram post ever have to wait this long for a decision during their karting days?...

  12. Post update

    It will be rubbish if you get champagne poured over your head and then get the win taken away.

    It could happen. Still waiting for the FIA to let us know.

  13. Three hours and counting

    We tick on into more than three hours since the race finished and still we don't know the winner.

    This guy was clean-shaven when the stewards' investigation started.

    Decision yet to made on Verstappen overtake

    Lee Bevan: If it takes longer than the duration of a race to make a decision maybe there isn't one to be made.

    Gary Walton: The stewards are not debating the result of the Austrian GP, they are debating the future of F1.

    Jonny Huntridge: Another F1 own goal coming up. They've made a rod for their back with the stewarding. Basically you can't race any more. How many classic old GP results would be change if today's rules were applied?

  16. What's going on here?

    In case you are just joining us, we are still waiting on the outcome of a stewards' meeting on whether Max Verstappen, who crossed the line first, is going to keep his win at the Austrian Grand Prix.

    Verstappen overtook leader Charles Leclerc at Turn Three on the 69th of 71 laps, although the Ferrari man then went wide off the track.

    Verstappen says it was hard racing, Leclerc says he was forced off. The Dutchman's winning margin was only three seconds so any time penalty will cost him the victory and give Leclerc his first ever F1 win.
