F1: Ferraris (NYSE:RACE) Crash Out, Verstappen Wins



Max Verstappen was a deserving winner in the race, having been the strongest driver across both Saturday and Sunday. But while he was taking Top honours, it was the action behind in the final few laps that really caught our eyes.

Following a late Safety Car brought out after a dramatic double retirement for Ferrari on Lap 66 of 71 caused by Sebastian Vettel moving lightly over on teammate Charles Leclerc, Red Bull’s Alex Albon was looking good to take his first F1 podium.

Sunday, a brilliant performance from Max Verstappen saw him convert Pole position into his 3rd win of the 2019 season, while in the final few laps saw both Ferraris clash and retire, and MercedesAMG’s Lewis Hamilton tip the other Red Bull of Alex Albon out of 2nd, allowing Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly to finish 2nd.

But with 2 laps to go when the race restarted, Mr. Hamilton tagged Mr. Albon, leaving the Thai driver to finish P14, while Gasly was able to hold off Mr. Hamilton in a drag race to the line to claim his own first podium in F1 – with the stewards later handing Mr. Hamilton a 5-sec penalty for his part in the Albon incident.

Behind, a great day for Carlos Sainz saw him make it from P20 at the start to P4, before later getting promoted to his 1st Top 3 finish after Mr. Hamilton’s penalty. He finished ahead of the Alfa Romeo pair of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi, with Renault’s Daniel Ricciardo 6th, Hamilton 7th, McLaren’s Lando Norris 8th, while Racing Point’s Sergio Perez and the 2nd Toro Rosso of Daniil Kvyat rounded out the Top 10.

A power unit failure for Valtteri Bottas saw him retire from the action on Lap 52, marking MercedesAMG’s 1st mechanical retirement since Austria 2018.
