Red Bull Racing racer, Max Verstappen, succeeded in winning the 2023 Formula 1 (F1) Las Vegas GP. This was his 18th victory this season.

The race took place at the Las Vegas Strip Circuit, Sunday (19/11/2023) afternoon WIB. The direct collision incident occurred at the first corner at the start of the race, which affected Carlos Sainz, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Botas.

Verstappen then received a five-second penalty on the second lap for sending Charles Leclerc off the track at the start of the race. This penalty made the gap between Verstappen and Leclerc only around 2.038 seconds.

On the 25th lap, contact occurred between George Russell’s and Verstappen’s cars. This impact caused Russell’s car to lose its front wing.

In the process, Verstappen was able to overcome a fierce race. He finally emerged as champion.”I think it created quite a lot of racing here, so it was really fun. I hope everyone enjoyed it a bit, already excited to come back here next year,” said Verstappen post-race.

Charles Leclerc finished the race in second place, followed by Sergio Perez in third. Esteban Ocon had to settle for fourth place and Lance Stroll in fifth.
