Thousands of Dutch fans would've left Spa disappointed. After all, their star driver crashed out on the opening lap. In Monza, an opening lap half-spin followed by Sergio Perez's Racing Point's straight-line advantage prevented us from witnessing a Max Verstappen masterclass. After all, the Red Bull racer started from the back after taking on an upgraded Honda power unit. Nevertheless, Formula 1 fans were greeted with Charles Leclerc's top-quality drive as he won for Ferrari in front of the tifosi.
