F1 2023 Brazilian GP – Fastest Lap

Max Verstappen led the race from start to finish in Brazil - but there was a dramatic fight to the line for P3.


Lando Norris secured the extra point for fastest lap in the Brazilian GP after a dramatic start and end to the race at Interlagos, as Max Verstappen notched up another dominant victory.

The race got off to an inauspicious start after the Ferrari of Charles Leclerc crashed into the barriers on the formation lap, with the Monegasque suffering a hydraulic failure which took him out of of proceedings before the lights went out.

Then once the race did get underway a massive crash involving the Haas pair of Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen and the Williams of Alex Albon caused the retirement the latter two to retire and the red flags to come out on Lap 1.

Damage from that incident also put paid to the chances of Oscar Piastri, who came over the line the last of the finishers in 14th after suffering rear wing damage, with the AlphaTauri of Daniel Ricciardo also being hit by the debris of the crash.

Mercedes struggle

Mercedes had come into the race with high hopes, but neither Lewis Hamilton or George Russell had the pace to challenge the Aston Martins or the McLaren of Norris up front, while Russell was forced to retire late in the race after struggling with overheating.

It was a much improved performance for Aston Martin however, as Fernando Alonso managed to hold on to the final podium spot against the charging Red Bull of Sergio Perez, crossing the line just 0.053s ahead of the Mexican.
