The Austrian Grand Prix was a home race for the Red Bull Racing Formula One team. With the drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly. Both young drivers and both talented. At YouTube the Formula 1 channel always uploads a race summary with the highlights of the raceday. I share this one because Max Verstappen has won again! It was an exciting race and lots of small things happening.

Austrian Grand Prix 2019 Race Highlights
My favorite highlight is that of lap 68 when Max Verstappen is trying to takeover Charles Leclerc. It is a nice fight that touches the edges and it goes on for a short while. Time in the video: 4:21 – 5:42.
Especially for this home race and the Dutch fans, Max Verstappen was wearing a yellow Jumbo helmet
