F1: Sergio Pérez wins Saudi Arabian GP with Verstappen second – as it happened

Fernando Alonso has been handed a 10-second time penalty by the stewards for that restart, and drops down to fourth place. Perez takes the chequered flag before Verstappen takes the fastest lap and the championship lead. 46/50 Verstappen is still worrying, even if his second place is all but secure. The last few laps will see him and Verstappen try and land the fastest lap. 39/50 Perez has the fastest lap now, and Verstappen is easing off, and still worried. 25/50 Alonso offers no resistance, and Verstappen flies up the track after Perez. Verstappen has the fastest lap now, and Hamilton is the only drover on medium tyres. 19/50 Alonso pits, takes his penalty and stays ahead of Russell for second. 17/50 Leclerc pits and so Verstappen is in fourth but still to pit.
