Verstappen wins the battle against Mercedes to capture 1st place on the podium

Another fantastic weekend for Red Bull racing having won their 3rd consecutive Grand Prix against the dominant Mercedes team. Red bull implemented the perfect tire strategy for Verstappen and Perez to sweep through Hamilton and Bottas after noticing Mercedes’ heavy tire usage at the end of the race. Hamilton attempted to stay up front for as long as possible but could not go full throttle with the older tires as it could have caused a puncture which could have jeopardized the race even more!

With this win Verstappen still firmly holds the number 1 position in the driver’s championship with 131pts, then comes Hamilton being a close second with 119pts, and lastly Verstappen’s team mate Sergio Perez with 84pts.
