Red Bull showed their strength again, with Max Verstappen taking his second pole of the season. He was closely followed by Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari and Verstappen’s teammate Sergio Perez in third.

Touching down, down under, the paddock arrived at the Australian Grand Prix to race at one of the biggest highlights of the F1 season. A weekend that now attracts well over 450,000 fans throughout the three days in Melbourne.

However, come race day, the championship saw a significant turn of events. Max Verstappen, the leading contender for the 2024 title, retired early after his car suffered a brake fire, ending his attempt to match his record of 10 consecutive wins. Carlos Sainz led Ferrari to a one-two finish alongside Charles Leclerc, with Lando Norris securing his season’s first podium.

Circuit length: 5.807km
2023 winner: Max Verstappen

Unlike in previous seasons, when Suzuka featured in September or October, the Japanese Grand Prix appeared much earlier in April, at a time of the year when locals and fans could enjoy the impressive cherry blossoms in bloom. But who would leave Suzuka the happiest come Sunday?

During qualifying, Max Verstappen narrowly pipped his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez to secure pole position, with Perez’s final attempt bringing him to within just 0.066 seconds of Verstappen’s leading time of 1:28.197. It was Red Bull’s first front-row lockout since the 2023 Bahrain Grand Prix, remarkable considering their dominance but reflective of Sergio Perez’s occasional struggles to leverage his car’s performance advantage.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen clinched a convincing win, rebounding from an unexpected DNF in Melbourne with a third one-two finish for Red Bull in 2024. Carlos Sainz narrowly beat his Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc for third after the race saw an early red flag due to a collision between Daniel Ricciardo and Alex Albon.
