Max Verstappen of Red Bull wins chaotic Australian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen held off a resurgent Lewis Hamilton to guide his Red Bull to a chaotic Australian Grand Prix victory on Sunday and tighten his grip on the top of the standings.

The reigning world champion started from pole and, despite being overtaken by Mercedes pairing George Russell and Hamilton at the start, kept his cool to win the three-time red-flagged race with numerous crashes.

Hamilton returned home second, ahead of Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso, who has achieved three out of three podiums this year.
