After Red Bull rolled the dice on an aggressive two-stop strategy, Verstappen charged through to pass Hamilton on the penultimate lap of the race – serving as payback for his late defeat in similar fashion at the Spanish Grand Prix last month.
It marked Red Bull’s third win in a row, but by defeating Mercedes in what has traditionally proven to be a Mercedes stronghold at Paul Ricard, the team made a huge statement in the title battle.
Recapping all of the action from Sunday’s race and covering the main storylines of the race weekend, Ariana Bravo is joined by Autosport F1 Reporter Luke Smith, GP Racing Executive Editor Stuart Codling and Motorsport Network Director of Digital Strategy Jess McFadyen on the latest edition of the Autosport Podcast.
