Bottas is sitting at the top of the Drivers’ Championship standings with 25 points after winning the first race of the new season.
 
The Finnish driver is pleased with his win in Austria and he will be looking to record another win on July 12.

“There was definitely quite a bit of pressure. One safety car was OK but by the last I was like, ‘Come on — again?’” a relieved Bottas said on Fox Sports.

“There were so many opportunities for Lewis to take the lead if I made a small mistake and he was really quick today. But I managed to keep it together, could really control the race from my side, and there’s obviously no better way to start the season.”

Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas, who still has a chance of winning his maiden Formula One title, is placed second on the standings - 74 points behind Hamilton.
 
Leclerc and Norris are placed second, and third respectively on the standings and they will be targeting a win in the second round.
 
Mercedes are sitting at the top of Constructors' standings and they are looking to secure the Constructors' championship for the seventh consecutive year.
 
Norris' McLaren are placed second on the standings, while Ferrari are sitting on the third spot.
