George Russell led a Mercedes one-two over Lewis Hamilton at the Sao Paulo GP to claim the first Grand Prix win of his Formula 1 career and his team’s first win of the season.

Russell started from the start after earning his first career Sprint win on Saturday, and never relinquished control of a dramatic contest at Interlagos on Sunday, which featured two Safety Car stops.

On the first Safety Car restart on lap seven, Hamilton and world champion Max Verstappen collided, with the Red Bull driver sustaining damage that forced him to pit, before he eventually battled back to finish sixth.

Moments after the Hamilton-Verstappen incident, for which the Dutchman was handed a five-second penalty, Lando Norris and Charles Leclerc also collided, with the Ferrari driver battling from the back of the field to finish fourth.

Carlos Sainz capitalized on those incidents to move into third for Ferrari, with Fernando Alonso fifth after a well-timed pit stop.
