On Lap 64, the championship leader Lewis Hamilton retired from the race as Lewis Hamilton lost all power from his vehicle.
Bottas was also cautious, noting that the upgraded engine didn't drastically increase Mercedes' advantage in France.
The Red Bull ace enjoyed an excellent getaway and briefly moved up to second on the first lap as pole-sitter Valtteri Bottas dropped back.
Hamilton was critical of the team over radio and complained they had thrown away a victory - to which Vowles replied it was his fault the win was slipping away - and insisted he would be unable to overtake the cars ahead.
Mercedes inexplicably failed to pit Hamilton from the lead while both Red Bull and Ferrari drivers came in for soft tires, allowing them to gain time while the race was being run at a reduced pace.
From there it looked set to be a comfortable race for Mercedes, but the drama started on lap 14 when Bottas was forced to retire with a loss of hydraulic pressure.
Hamilton was in front from the start but lost his lead following a tactical mistake by his team, which did not pit him under a virtual safety vehicle while most other teams took the opportunity to switch to soft tires.
But as it happened, Mercedes cascading series of problems made the strategy error moot.
Hamilton was running in fourth, behind his rival Sebastian Vettel, before he then ran out of power with only eight laps remaining and stopped at the side of the track.
The Ferraris will start tomorrow's race on the ultrasoft tyres, having used them to set their Q2 times, while Hamilton and Bottas will have supersofts.
A dark stripe was appearing on Hamilton's left rear tyre - a sign of blistering, where the rubber overheats, bubbles and tears badly - and it became clear Hamilton would have to stop again and fourth was the best he could hope for.
Victory in Austria was his first of the year, his third successive podium and his fourth in five races.
Raikkonen had challenged the two Mercedes cars for the lead into Turn 1, but was soon back down to third and came under attack from Verstappen after exiting Turn 6.
Verstappen did not have the best of starts to the season. He crossed the line just 1.5secs ahead of Raikkonen, with Vettel a similar distance behind.
McLaren's Fernando Alonso was the first man out, but Ferrari Kimi Raikkonen laid down the first significant time, the Finn putting a 1m05.839s on the board on Pirelli's ultrasoft tyre.
Driver of the day It has to be Verstappen.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner described Verstappen's drive as "unbelievable" and praised the way he dealt with the warmer conditions and the impact that had on the tyres. But Austria showed that nothing can be taken for granted.
"It was unbelievable", Verstappen said. We managed to hang on until the end. I need to catch up with the points.
Vettel said: "We were chasing him down at the end but couldn't quite make it".
