Sergio Perez wins the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix with his Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen taking second despite starting 15th… as Mercedes pair George Russell and Lewis Hamilton finish third and fifth

Sergio Perez won a private duel with his Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen to win the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. The extent of Red Bull’s dominance was clear in the fact Verstappen came from 15th on the grid – a result of a driveshaft failure in qualifying – to contest the lead and finish second. Fernando Alonso had finished an excellent third for Aston Martin, but was demoted after a 10-second penalty for serving his penalty incorrectly. He started third and finished third after Alonso’s error, 26 seconds off the top. Credit to Red Bull for not asking him to make way for Verstappen, who took the extra point for fastest lap at the death.
