Max Verstappen charged from 14th on the grid to claim a dominant victory at the Belgian Grand Prix and further extend his F1 championship lead.
Verstappen, who started 14th after being hit with a grid penalty for using too many engine parts, drove an outstanding race to carve his way through the field and take his ninth win of the season ahead of Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez.
The result leaves Verstappen with a 93-point championship lead over Perez with eight races remaining, with the Dutchman accelerating towards his second world title.
Starting on soft tyres, it took Verstappen just 12 laps to get into the lead after overtaking Perez. Verstappen briefly dropped to second behind Carlos Sainz when he came in for his first pitstop, but took just three laps to breeze back past the Ferrari driver.
From there, Verstappen was in a league of his own on his way to sealing the 29th victory of his F1 career by a margin of nearly 20s.
10s behind the two Red Bulls, Sainz completed the podium, ahead of Mercedes’ George Russell.
