F1 Australian Grand Prix 2024 – Race Results

Carlos Sainz of Ferrari took victory at the 2024 Australian GP in Melbourne


A sensational drive from Carlos Sainz saw the Ferrari driver take the chequered flag and win the 2024 Australian Grand Prix, though he was helped a tad by Max Verstappen’s early retirement from the race. 

Sainz, who started second with Verstappen on pole, jumped the Red Bull on Lap 2 and then three laps later the Dutchman saw his race come to an end after the right-rear brake set itself on fire. 

Charles Leclerc, Sainz’s Ferrari teammate, executed a successful undercut on Lando Norris to claim second place, ensuring a one-two finish for Ferrari for the first time since 2022. Norris, however, didn’t walk away empty-handed, achieving his first podium of the season and showcasing McLaren‘s potential competitiveness

Logan Sargeant didn’t participate in the race after the American was forced to surrender his car to Alex Albon who had wrecked his own chassis in FP1 with Williams not bringing a spare to Melbourne.
