Hamilton wins Styrian GP ahead of Mercedes teammate Bottas
SPIELBERG, Austria (AP) — Lewis Hamilton has won the Styrian Grand Prix from pole position to clinch an 85th career win and move within six of Michael Schumacher’s Formula One record. Most of Schumacher’s wins were during a dominant spell with Ferrari. But his old team is struggling badly. For the second time in the past four races Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel crashed into each other and went out. Hamilton’s record-extending 89th career pole on a rain-drenched track was one of his best in extreme conditions. But he was hardly challenged during the race. He finished 13.7 seconds ahead of Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas and 33.7 ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.
