Max Verstappen won an intense race-long battle with Charles Leclerc to require his initial finish of the season in the Saudi Arabian grand prix.
The Red Bull driver passed the Ferrari with four laps to go once the 2 had duelled throughout a tense race.
The battle often edged on farce because the 2 caught up nearly to a stop at times to try to work the DRS overtaking zones to their advantage.
But Verstappen edged it by 0.5 seconds after making the decisive move.
The two were during a league of their own in the lead as Ferrari’s carlos Sainz and Red Bull’s Sergio Perez took third and fourth.
George Russell finished fifth for Mercedes, ahead of Alpine’s Esteban Ocon and McLaren’s Lando Norris.
Lewis Hamilton recovered from beginning fifteenth to end tenth.
The excitement meant a tough weekend for F1 concluded on a high, however the drivers and other senior figures unnerved by Friday’s missile strike on a nearby oil depot ar unlikely to allow the sport’s bosses to forget what has been an uncomfortable 3 days in the desert.
