Verstappen won the race and extended his advantage in the championship
"We definitely gave it our all today as a team and it was great to have Checo up there with me on the podium" ~ Max Verstappen
Super Max won the USA GP, with Lewis Hamilton in second, the British driver fought a lot, but the Red Bull strategy and the great driving of Verstappen prevailed, so the Dutch is in advantage for the Driver's Championship and seems the wind is in his favor.
In 3rd was Sergio Peréz, who drove really well, without his water system, the Mexican said it was certainly one of his toughest races in F1, brilliantly we had two Red Bulls in the podium and the fight for the Constructor's Championship is also strong.
In 4th was Leclerc, just ahead of Ricciardo in 5th with his McLaren, Bottas finished in 6th, Sainz in 7th, Norris in 8th, Tsunoda in 9th and Vettel in 10th, the complete race result can be seen here.
The fight for the 3rd place in the Constructor's Championship between McLaren and Ferrari is also another chapter of this Season that worth following up, race by race the two teams are doing their very best to finish in 3rd and a lot of fights on this race between Ricciardo and Sainz, really nice to watch.
The extra point for fastest lap was given to Hamilton (2021 DHL Fastest Lap Award), helping a bit to not let Verstappen extend the advantage to its maximum.
Verstappen is going really well for this final 5 races of the season and has great chances to become the champion this year if continue winning like this, he already won 8 races this year, agains 5 of Lewis Hamilton, that shows how strongly he is willing to conquer the tittle. The next races will be intense.
