Max Verstappen wins US F1 GP but Hamilton and Leclerc disqualified
The Guardian says Having put in a real shift to win the US Grand Prix there was no little irony that it was at this race, amid an all-conquering season, that Max Verstappen was greeted with booing as he took to the podium. A shame, as it was undeserved. He won for the 50th time under the sort of pressure he has not encountered all year.
Verstappen has cantered to many of his 15 wins this season, a dominance that doubtless informed the reaction of fans at the Circuit of the Americas who gave him some stick as he collected the trophy but of those 15, this was one he had to earn.
Starting from sixth, struggling with a brake problem from lap one and faced with a strong Mercedes in Lewis Hamilton’s hands and a resurgent McLaren with Lando Norris at the wheel, he was pushed to the flag.
