After winning the dramatic Brazilian Grand Prix, George Russell has won his first Formula One race.

After overcoming two Safety Car periods and a late comeback from driver Lewis Hamilton, the 24-year-old has won his maiden Formula One race in the 81st try.

Despite starting from pole position, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen’s challenge was short-lived when the two collided at Turn 2 right after the first Safety Car period, which was called due to a collision involving Kevin Magnussen and Daniel Ricciardo on the opening lap.

Verstappen received a five-second time penalty and had to pit for a replacement front wing as a result of the collision, which caused the pair to drop in the rankings.

Russell appeared to have the race under control, but a late Safety Car for Lando Norris’ damaged McLaren pushed Hamilton back into the picture.

Hamilton had one more opportunity to secure his own first triumph of the year, but Russell’s skillful restart robbed him of that opportunity.

Sergio Perez was passed by Carlos Sainz late in the race to secure 3rd place for Ferrari, and Charles Leclerc recovered from a collision with the wall to finish fourth.

Leclerc and Norris collided entering Turn 6 during the initial resumption, sending the Monegasque nose-first into the barrier and earning Norris a five-second penalty.

Fernando Alonso finished a stunning fifth for Alpine, beating off the Red Bull squad of Verstappen, who disobeyed a late request to let his teammate through, and Perez, who faded after the second Safety Car due to worn-out Medium tyres.

Alpine’s Esteban Ocon finished in eighth place, ahead of Valtteri Bottas of Alfa Romeo and Lance Stroll of Aston Martin, capping off a great comeback for Alpine.
