Verstappen wins a tense Sprint race as Red Bull tension increases.

In the opening stages of the race, the Dutchman overcame a battle with his teammate Sergio Perez who finished 20 seconds behind him at the end with Carlos Sainz claiming third place for Ferrari.

Perez made an amazing start and pushed Max onto the grass on the exit of turn 1.

As they were battling for track position and grip Nico Hulkenberg found a way to overtake Sergio and claimed 2nd place.

it took until lap 12 for Sergio to retake second place as Hulkenberg began to struggle for traction on a drying track. 

Slick Gamble

with nine laps to go, Russel was the first driver who took the gamble to change for Soft Tyres onto his car while FIA race control enabled DRS.

Hulkenberg was the second driver that stopped for Slick tires, as were Hamilton, Magnussen, Sargeant, Piastri, Nyck de Vries, and Zhou.

Albon and Leclerc followed suit as other drivers attempted to overhaul those who continued to race on slick tires. By switching to slick tires, Russell was able to gain position on the Williams driver, who was running in seventh.

With those at the top of the table able to hang on to Intermediates, the switch to Slicks ultimately proved to be too late for significant order changes.

Verstappen won the race for Red Bull ahead of Perez, and Sainz took the final podium spot.

Ocon missed out on sixth place as Hulkenberg beat him to the finish line, while Aston Martin finished fourth and fifth with Stroll finishing ahead of Alonso.

Norris was unable to hold off the Slick-tyre attack. Russell earned the final point in eighth place, and Hamilton finished in the top 10.
