Sainz led all the race, while Verstappen started 11th and ended fifth. Lando Norris (McLaren) finished second and Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) finished third. This was Ferrari’s first win of the year, and the second of Sainz’s career. The Spaniard won the British Grand Prix at Silverstone last year.

With the win, Ferrari interrupted Red Bull’s hegemony, which had won all the 14 races this season, plus the last one in 2022 in Abu Dhabi. With fifth place, this was the worst result of the season for Max Verstappen. Despite this, he maintains the lead in the overall standings, with 374 points, 151 ahead of second place, his teammate Sergio Pérez. 

Carlos Sainz is fifth in the overall, with 142 points. In the constructors’ championship, Ferrari has consolidated third place, just 24 points behind second-placed Mercedes. Red Bull remains in the lead with 597 points.

The next race is this weekend (22-24), with the Japanese Grand Prix, in Suzuka.
