Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen snubbed as Fernando Alonso labelled 'best driver' in F1

The Spaniard excellently passed AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly early to briefly move into P2 before Verstappen fought back.

Hamilton took the chequered flag at the inaugural race in Qatar, comfortably leading from the front to take his 30th win at a different track. 

Verstappen, who suffered a five-place grid penalty for ignoring yellow flags during qualifying, quickly climbed through the field to finish behind his title rival, taking the extra point for fastest lap to boot. 

Formula 1 travels to the Jeddah Corniche Circuit for the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on December 5, with Red Bull star Verstappen holding an eight-point lead over Mercedes’ Hamilton with just two races remaining.
