“Max Verstappen won the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola Sunday, as Ferrari’s World Championship leader Charles Leclerc crashed but salvaged 6th. Heartbreaking!”–Paul Ebeling
Mr. Verstappen dominated a wet/dry race from Pole position to lead home a Red Bull 1-2 with teammate Sergio Perez.
Ferrari’s heartbreaking home race began when Carlos Sainz was taken out by McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo at the 1st corner, and was compounded when Mr. Leclerc spun into the barrier while attempting to pressure Mr. Perez. He was forced to pit for a new nose and front wing, dropping to 9th but recovered to finish 6th.
