F1 2024 Saudi Arabian GP – Race Results

Max Versrappen took his second victory of the 2024 F1 season at the Saudi Arabian GP


Max Verstappen continued his formidable championship defense with a dominant victory at the 2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, leading the race from start to finish. An early Safety Car scenario prompted strategic pit stops, with Red Bull securing a successful one-two finish as Sergio Perez clinched second despite a penalty for an unsafe release. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc rounded off the podium, while McLaren’s Oscar Piastri impressed with a strong fourth-place finish.

In his Formula 1 debut, Oliver Bearman, substituting for Carlos Sainz, showcased his potential by securing seventh place after executing several crucial overtakes. The race also saw strategic maneuvers from teams like McLaren and Mercedes, with Lando Norris and Lewis Hamilton extending their initial stints, finishing eighth and ninth respectively. Nico Hulkenberg earned Haas‘s first points of the season in tenth, benefiting from a team strategy that delayed his competitors.

The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was marked by intense midfield battles, retirements, and strategic gameplay that reshuffled the standings. Lance Stroll‘s crash introduced an early Safety Car, influencing the race’s dynamic, while Pierre Gasly‘s early retirement due to a gearbox issue underscored the challenges teams face. This event not only highlighted Verstappen’s continued dominance but also the strategic depth and competitive spirit that define Formula 1.
