F1 NATION: Verstappen seals a 50th win as Hamilton and Leclerc disqualified – it's our United States GP review


It was a tense and action-packed affair in Austin that saw Max Verstappen take the victory in both the Sprint and the race. But it was not as straightforward as it seemed – and to reflect on it all is our F1 Nation crew.

On this week’s episode, Tom Clarkson is joined by Damon Hill and Tim Mayer, the Chairman of the FIA stewards, as they discuss an eventful race where Verstappen claimed the 50th win of his F1 career, having seen off the challenge of a charging Lewis Hamilton.

One of those drivers to gain from the pair’s disqualification was Alex Albon, who finished 11th before moving up to ninth, and he stops by the podcast to have a chat about his and Williams’ Austin weekend.
