LEWIS HAMILTON won the Austrian Grand Prix after an extraordinary final lap in which he collided with his Mercedes team-mate and title rival, Nico Rosberg.

It is the 31-year-old’s third victory this season and the 46th of his career, a timely win that closes championship gap to Rosberg to 11 points with 12 races to go.

He said: “That was intense at the end. He made a mistake into turn one on the last lap. I left him a lot of room at turn two but he locked up and crashed into me. I am here to win, that’s all.”
