With the victory in front of his home crowd, Hamilton also slashed Sebastian Vettel's championship lead to just one point.
Pre-race. Gap: 20 points - Hamilton endured a frustrating Austrian Grand Prix, with Vettel opening up strong lead with second place behind Valtteri Bottas.
That was how the order at the front remained until the pitstops, where Vettel was able to undercut Verstappen and move up to third, helped by a slower stop for the Dutchman.

Red Bull driver Max Verstappen also made a precautionary pitstop for fresh tyres after seeing Raikkonen's problem.
"We are having a driver strategy that's very clear: we love our two drivers, Lewis and Valtteri". Esteban Ocon had recently taken to Twitter to appeal for a truce.

The three-time world champion dominated from pole to equal fellow-Briton Jim Clark and Frenchman Alain Prost as a five-time victor of the British race.
"I have more poles than most", said the Briton, who is now one off Michael Schumacher's all-time record of 68 after Saturday's pole.
Ricciardo was the first to fall foul of the slippery conditions this morning when he lost control of his Red Bull on the exit of the final corner and slid across the main straight.
When asked about whether he'll win the championship by Hollywood star Owen Wilson, who was promoting his movie Cars 3, on the podium, Hamilton joked: "That's the plan. and then I want to be in Cars 4".
