Australian Grand Prix: Charles Leclerc wins in Melbourne as title rival Max Verstappen retires

Verstappen is 46 points – almost two clear wins – behind Leclerc after just three races of the season, in two of which the Red Bull has failed to finish. Leclerc’s win was his second of the season and by far the most imposing performance by any driver so far. Red Bull had hopes of taking the fight to Leclerc, as Verstappen did on his way to victory in the last race in Saudi Arabia, but they were in vain. Both cars retired from the first race of the season in Bahrain in the closing laps with fuel-system problems, denying Verstappen second place behind Leclerc.
