However, the race was not without its drama. A collision involving Fernando Alonso, Lance Stroll, and Lewis Hamilton triggered a safety car period early on, bringing the action to a temporary halt.

In a gripping sequence of events, Lewis Hamilton’s relentless pursuit saw him launching another attack on Magnussen on lap 14. However, both drivers ran off the track, opening the door for RB’s Yuki Tsunoda to capitalize and snatch ninth place from Hamilton. Despite Magnussen relinquishing positions to both drivers, he found himself on the receiving end of two more penalties, further complicating his race.

At the front, Max Verstappen clinched victory with a commanding lead of 3 seconds over Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez. Daniel Ricciardo secured a respectable fourth place, managing to keep the closely trailing duo of Carlos Sainz and Oscar Piastri at bay.

Nico Hulkenberg claimed seventh position, while Hamilton’s late surge allowed him to pass Tsunoda for eighth on the final lap, with Pierre Gasly rounding out the top 10 for Alpine.

However, Hamilton’s post-race fortunes took a turn for the worse as he was handed a drive-through penalty for speeding in the pits during the safety car period. The hefty 20-second penalty relegated him to 16th place, elevating Logan Sargeant of Williams into the top 10.

Esteban Ocon of Alpine faced adversity early on, receiving a 10-second penalty before the race even began for an incident involving Leclerc’s Ferrari in the pit lane. Despite the setback, Ocon capitalized on the safety car period to serve his penalty, ultimately finishing in 15th place.

Meanwhile, Alex Albon endured a challenging weekend, starting from the pit lane after a dismal qualifying session. Despite the setback, he showcased resilience to finish 13th for Williams.
