Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc finished the Austrian Grand Prix at pole as he capped off a day of mixed fortunes for the Prancing Horse as teammate Carlos Sainz had to box 14 laps from the end with an engine fire.
Leclerc’s win over Max Verstappen at Red Bull's home circuit re-energies the title race, but the gap between the two drivers still stands at 38 points in Verstappen's favour. But now the F1 calendar moves to the iconic Paul Ricard track in Le Castellet near Marseille.
