Sao Paulo Grand Prix: Max Verstappen wins sprint race from Lando Norris

Last updated on Less than a minute agoLess than a minute ago.From the section Formula 1comments0. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen stroked to a comfortable victory in the Sao Paulo Grand Prix sprint race after passing Lando Norris’ McLaren at the start. Verstappen’s better launch secured him the inside line for the first corner and he controlled the race from there. Norris slipped back to third on the first lap behind George Russell’s Mercedes but re-passed him on lap five. Red Bull’s Sergio Perez recovered from dropping behind Russell and team-mate Lewis Hamilton to finish third. Russell hung on to fourth place, his pace fading as the race ran its distance, but Hamilton, also struggling, slipped behind Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, who took fifth with three laps to go. There were gripping battles throughout the field, with Hamilton holding up a train of cars for the first few laps as up to 10 drivers at times battled behind him.
