A comeback win, a record equalled and a first Formula 1 constructors’ championship in nine years secured – the United States Grand Prix was everything Red Bull could have hoped for as it tried to pay the best possible tribute to its co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz on the weekend of his death.
Mark Hughes, Scott Mitchell-Malm and Edd Straw look at how Max Verstappen secured his Austin win despite both Ferrari and Mercedes being in the mix at the front too.
The first-corner clash between George Russell and Carlos Sainz and the even more dramatic tangle between Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso are analysed too, along with the post-race furore over Haas’s successful protest against Alpine over Alonso’s car. And as ever, our panel also answers questions from The Race Members’ Club.
