F1 2023 Austrian GP Starting Grid – Final Grid Positions

    Max Verstappen finds himself starting first on the grid for the 2023 Austrian GP, just ahead of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz in the Ferrari cars


    Once again, Max Verstappen is in first place on the starting grid, with the Red Bull driver joined on the front row for the 2023 Austrian Grand Prix by Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc

    But a Qualifying disaster for Verstappen’s Red Bull teammate Checo Perez means he starts in 15th, the Dutchman will be surrounded by Ferrari cars as Carlos Sainz leads the second row and starts third. 

    A raft of upgrades for the McLaren of Lando Norris helped the Brit put his car fourth on the starting grid, just ahead of Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes who starts fifth at the Red Bull Ring. 

    Surprisingly, Lance Stroll won the battle of the Aston Martins and is sixth on the grid, just ahead of Fernando Alonso in seventh. Nico Hulkenberg produced a heroic qualifying performance to put his Haas in eighth. 

    Pierre Gasly in the Alpine starts ninth, and Alex Albon rounds out the top 10 in the Williams
