Max Verstappen puts finishing touches on F1 title with win at Qatar Grand Prix

Max Verstappen is the Formula One champion again. He isn’t easing off.

A day after clinching his third title in a sprint race, it was clear the celebrations had taken nothing out of Verstappen’s pace as he cruised to his 14th Grand Prix win of the season in familiar style at the Qatar Grand Prix on Sunday.

The Red Bull driver started on pole, stayed clear of Lewis Hamilton and George Russell colliding alongside him at the first corner, and was then comfortably ahead of the rest of the field on his way to his 14th Grand Prix win in 2023.

American driver Logan Sargeant retired from the race on lap 40 of 57 after feeling unwell and being told over the radio by his Williams team engineer that there would be “no shame” in stopping. Williams said Sargeant had suffered “intense dehydration” and had raced despite having been ill earlier in the week. He was assessed and cleared by the medical team at the track, Williams added.
