As of yesterday, November 19th, 2023, the Formula One landscape saw significant action at the Las Vegas Grand Prix, with Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing taking a commanding victory over Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and his own teammate Sergio Perez. The race, marked by several incidents and Safety Car periods, showcased strategic tyre changes and bold overtakes.

Verstappen, who started alongside Leclerc, initially lost the lead to the Ferrari driver due to a five-second time penalty for forcing Leclerc off the track. However, he managed to fight back into the lead position after the first round of pit stops. The race dynamics were further influenced by a Safety Car period that allowed Verstappen and other drivers to pit again under caution.

Leclerc, on older tyres, struggled to fend off Perez, who made an early stop due to an incident in the first lap. However, Leclerc’s tenacity saw him reclaim second place on the final lap, securing a finish behind Verstappen.

Esteban Ocon of Alpine achieved an impressive fourth place, benefitting from a penalty given to Mercedes’ George Russell due to a clash with Verstappen. Russell’s penalty also promoted Lance Stroll of Aston Martin to fifth place.

Other notable drivers like Carlos Sainz, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, and rookie Oscar Piastri finished within the points, with Piastri being the only McLaren to finish after Lando Norris’ early crash.

Pierre Gasly and Alex Albon faced a disappointing tumble down the order, while Kevin Magnussen, Daniel Ricciardo, Zhou Gaunyu, and Valtteri Bottas completed the race amidst various challenges. Yuki Tsunoda and Nico Hulkenberg retired due to technical issues.

This Grand Prix, held in Las Vegas, was particularly notable for the drama it brought from the outset and the competitive spirit exhibited by the drivers, leading to a race full of overtakes and strategic plays. With the season heading towards its conclusion, the next stop for Formula One is the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
