Max Verstappen retained his victory for Red Bull in a thrilling Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday following a stewards' hearing.

The 21-year-old Red Bull rookie won the race after forcing his way past Charles Leclerc's Ferrari in a wheel-bashing pass, two laps from the end of the race.

The incident investigated by the race stewards, who confirmed the result nearly three hours after the race ended.

In a statement, the FIA said: "We did not consider that either driver was wholly or predominantly to blame for the incident. We consider that this is a racing incident."
