Max Verstappen won an intense race-long battle with Charles Leclerc to take his first victory of the season in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
Verstappen, who is the Red Bull’s driver, passed Leclerc’s Ferrari with four laps to go after the two had battled during a tense race.
Both drivers had to slow down almost to a stop at times to try to work the Drag reduction system (DRS) overtaking zones to their advantage.
However, Verstappen won the tight race by 0.5 seconds after making the decisive move, with him and Leclerc in front of the race, while Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Red Bull’s Sergio Perez came third and fourth, respectively.
