Max Verstappen has won the Spanish Grand Prix. The Dutchman finished two seconds ahead of Lando Norris, who was closing in during the final stages. Teammate Sergio Pérez finished eighth.

Christian Horner, team principal of Oracle Red Bull Racing, said after the race: “Max drove a brilliant race today, and strategically we got it just right. The first lap was crucial with the start being one element of it, but Max also needed to overtake the Mercedes at the right moment and then quickly get the tyres under control which is very difficult under pressure. Checo was on a three stop strategy today and he executed a tricky race with good overtakes to secure points, so should take some confidence away from the weekend. It was a very exciting race with hard, fair racing and small margins. McLaren are doing a great job, Ferrari aren’t far away and Mercedes have made progress as well, but we’re just keeping our nose ahead and it’s important that we keep pushing because there are still a lot more races to go.”
