Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc retired from the Styrian Formula One Grand Prix after colliding on the opening lap on Sunday.

Both cars suffered damage and pitted at the end of the lap, with four-times world champion Vettel going no further while Leclerc rejoined in last place after having a new front wing fitted.

Leclerc, whose car was tipped onto Vettel's after he tried a lunge down the inside of the German and hit a kerb in the turn three incident, returned to the pits on lap five and also retired from the race.
