Alfa Romeo's Antonio Giovinazzi had a brilliant first lap at the 2020 Austrian Grand Prix, overtaking four competitors before the end of Lap 1, and here you can see exactly how the Italian pulled it off.

Starting from 18th on the grid next to Williams' George Russell, Giovinazzi had a tough task ahead of him if Alfa Romeo were to take points away from the Austrian Grand Prix.

But he didn't let that put him off, leaping past Russell off the line and making light work of Haas's Romain Grosjean and Renault's Esteban Ocon at Turn 2. Then, Daniil Kvyat fell into his clutches at Turn 3 to cap off a brilliant start to the race that saw Giovinazzi finish ninth.

“We put up a big fight for this and in the end P9 is a great way to start the season,” he said after the race. “I am really happy for the guys and girls in the garage and back at home. There’s still a lot to improve but it’s just the first race of the season: there’s plenty of time and I am already looking forward to being back in the car next week.”
