F1 2024 Moments (Saudi Arabian Grand Prix Edition): Only the second race of the season, and we have multiple moments

It is the second race of the season, and as usual, Max Verstappen had a dominant run. Not just Verstappen but his partner, Sergio Perez, had a good run. Both Ferrari drivers also had a smooth operation. One by finishing on the podium and the second with a successful appendicitis surgery. Apart from that, several moments took place during the race. So, let us look at the F1 2024 moments (Saudi Arabian Grand Prix edition).

F1 2024 Moments (Saudi Arabian Grand Prix Edition)

1. Two in two for Max Verstappen

It looks like every F1 fan will be learning the Dutch national anthem by the end of the season. The reason is Max Verstappen and his dominant run. He wins the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix and does it with ease.

With this victory, he registers his 56th race win and 100th podium finish. He is comfortably standing at the top of the F1 championship.

2. Back-to-back 1-2 finish for Red Bull

As mentioned, Verstappen finished first in the race, followed by Sergio Perez in second. Perez started third in the race and gradually secured his second-place finish this season. He is standing on 36 points with a lead of eight in the non-Max Verstappen F1 Championship.

3. Oliver Bearman made his dream debut

Imagine being 18 years old and getting a call from the Ferrari team to race in an F1 Grand Prix. Moreover, getting only one practice section, qualifying P11, finishing P7, and winning the Driver of the Day.

Yes, all this is not imagination because Oliver Bearman did it in the Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. He is now 10th in the F1 championship with six points and might be ahead of a few drivers by the end of the season.

4. Kevin Magnussen snatched the title of ‘Ministry of Defence’ from Checo for a race

This might sound funny, but Magnussen held seven cars behind him throughout the race. The reason was to help his teammate Nico Hulkenberg finish in points.

Magnussen had to serve a ten-second penalty, and finishing in points was difficult for him. Haas didn’t opt for a Ferrari strategy and did it smartly. Magnussen finished tenth and helped the team secure one crucial point, which might be influential by the end of the season.

5. Gasly started the race to end it in a lap

Due to a gearbox failure, Pierre Gasly had to retire the car after the first lap. He had to abandon the race in the very first lap.
