Given his stranglehold on the Formula 1 world championship over the past few years it seems hard to remember a time when Lewis Hamilton was seriously on the back foot in the title fight.

But back in the middle of 2016, he was trailing his Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg in the standings by 24 points, having only managed two wins to Rosberg's five, as they arrived at the Red Bull Ring for the Austrian Grand Prix.

The race – and the incredible last lap drama involving the two warring team mates – showed just how intense that season's title fight was.

And as we prepare for F1 racing to start again with the Austrian GP in two week's time, we've got that 2016 race for you in full in the video above.
