SHANGHAI, April 21

Triple world champion Max Verstappen won Formula One’s first Chinese Grand Prix in five years with McLaren’s Lando Norris finishing a surprise second to deny dominant Red Bull the one-two.

The crushing victory from pole position at a Shanghai circuit that last hosted a Grand Prix in 2019 was Verstappen’s fourth in five races in 2024 and came after he also won the season’s first Saturday sprint.

Mexican teammate Sergio Perez, Verstappen’s closest championship rival but now 25 points behind, completed the podium after a dry race with two safety car periods that compromised his race.

Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz finished fourth and fifth respectively with Mercedes’s George Russell sixth and Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso seventh with a bonus point for fastest lap. — Reuters
