Max Verstappen edged out Charles Leclerc late on to win a thrilling Austrian Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver recovered from a poor start in which he dropped down to eighth, working his way through the field before taking the lead with just two laps to go.

Leclerc had seemed to be on his way to a maiden F1 victory after leading from pole position in his Ferrari.

It took three hours following the race for Verstappen's win to be confirmed as stewards looked into his pass of Leclerc.

Valterri Bottas crossed the line in third to complete the podium, with Sebastian Vettel fourth and Lewis Hamilton fifth.
