  • 63-laps led by Max Verstappen, on his way to achieving a Grand Slam.

  • 2.27 seconds-the fastest pitstop in the race, performed by McLaren.

Difference in Grid and Finishing Positions

Max Verstappen put in an imperious performance, setting the pace from the get go and finishing in the same position he had started: 1st. Sainz, Alonso, Schumacher Jr and Ricciardo suffered big losses, with the former two not finishing the race and the latter two coming 17th and 18th respectively. While others improved on their grid positions, in general, it was a race to forget for Leclerc. Having trailed the Red Bull duo of Verstappen and Perez for the majority of the race, he crashed in the later stages and could only recover to finish 6th.

Lap by Lap Positions of Drivers

The lack of DRS for a good chunk of the race played it's part, as many drivers held their position for stretches of up to 30-35 laps. The front 3 in particular, held their positions, except for when Perez pitted and Leclerc spun later on, with a lonely Lando Norris taking his place in 3rd. We did see a few intriguing battles down the order though, most notably between Russell and Bottas towards the end of the race.

Fastest Lap in each Session

FP1 was a wet session. So, lap times were quite high, about 10s higher, as each driver set the quickest time on Inters. FP2, Sprint, and Race were dry sessions. The quickest times were generally put on the Mediums as very few drivers got a chance to run the Softs.
