Max Verstappen’s third Formula 1 victory on home soil earned him a record-equalling ninth consecutive grand prix victory but it was far from easy.
There were several periods of rain on race day, each threatening Verstappen’s grip on the race and littering the track with potential race-ending challenges.
But he came through for a win that drew plenty of praise from the man he beat, Fernando Alonso who also had a highly-impressive race of his own.
Verstappen and Alonso’s races are assessed by Mark Hughes, Scott Mitchell-Malm and Edd Straw on the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast. There’s also talk of how Daniel Ricciardo’s injury affects Red Bull’s 2024 driver plan and how Pierre Gasly earned Alpine an unlikely podium.
And as ever, we answer plenty of questions from The Race Members’ Club.
