F1 2023 Qatar GP – Sprint Race Results

A dramatic Sprint Race saw a number of safety cars, with drivers on the soft tyres struggling with high degradation.


Max Verstappen wrapped up the 2023 F1 Drivers’ Championship in the Qatar GP Sprint Race, but it was Oscar Piastri who took his first victory as the McLaren driver fended off challenges from the chasing pack to cross the line in first.

Piastri lost out in the early stages of the race from pole, as the soft tyres runners such as George Russell surged up the order, but the high degradation around the Losail International Circuit played into his hands in the latter stages.

He then managed to keep the charging Verstappen at bay, as teammate Lando Norris recovered from a poor start to take the final podium spot.
