Max Verstappen's charge to a fourth world title continued at quite the pace in China as he stormed to victory in both the sprint and the grand prix. In what was the first Chinese Grand Prix to be held since 2019, the Red Bull virtuoso claimed his fourth win of the season to extend his lead over team-mate Sergio Perez at the top of the drivers' standings.

The reigning three-time world champion cruised to the front of the field in the sprint from fourth on the grid, and weathered two safety cars during the grand prix to take a comfortable victory ahead of McLaren's Lando Norris. 

It was a good weekend for Norris, who took pole for the sprint and carried decent pace through the whole weekend to see off pressure from Perez. Despite missing out on a fourth one-two finish for Red Bull, it was a fourth podium of the year for the Mexican, who is quietly having a pretty consistent season so far for Red Bull.

Charles Leclerc did well to out-pace his team-mate Carlos Sainz, as the Ferraris failed to finish on the podium for the first time in 2024. George Russell made the best of a horror weekend for Mercedes to finish sixth ahead of Fernando Alonso who again battled hard to bring home solid points for Aston Martin.

Oscar Piastri, Lewis Hamilton, who recovered from 18th on the grid, and Nico Hulkenberg rounded out the top ten to keep a strangle hold on the points-paying positions. So far seven drivers and three teams have failed to score in the first five races of the season.
