2016 Austrian Grand Prix - Driver ratings

Motor Racing - Formula One World Championship - Austrian Grand Prix - Race Day - Spielberg, Austria

Max Verstappen - 2nd place, 18 points - 9/10

Another display of why Red Bull rates him so highly, Verstappen put Daniel Ricciardo in the shade in the race. Started behind his team-mate but was ahead on the second lap and didn’t look back. After the safety car the pair were running together on the road but Verstappen eased away and then showed the same maturity which was evident in Spain to hold off the quicker Kimi Raikkonen in the closing laps. A podium was fully deserved, even if second was an unexpected bonus.
