Max Verstappen snatches dramatic late win in Saudi Arabian GP after Charles Leclerc battle as Lewis Hamilton ends 10th

MAX VERSTAPPEN snatched a dramatic late win in Saudi Arabia after an epic battle with Charles Leclerc.

The reigning champion picked up his first win of the season after disappointment in the Bahrain opener.

But for rival Lewis Hamilton it was disaster as the Brit finished in tenth.

Verstappen said: "It was really tough but a good race. We were battling hard at the front and we just tried to play the long game.

"They were really quick through the corners and we were really quick on the straight. The tyres were wearing our quite quickly around here.

"You could see at the end, we had a little bit more pace. It wasn't easy but eventually managed to get ahead.

"I'm really happy that we've finally kick-started the season."
