Max Verstappen won the French Grand Prix on Sunday after championship rival Charles Leclerc crashed out from the lead.

Charles Leclerc was in charge of the race, before he sensationally lost control of his Ferrari through the right-hand turn 11 of circuit paul Ricard, and slammed into the tire wall. 
Just seconds, Verstappen took advantage of Leclerc's demise, to race unchallenged to the chequered flag, and extend his lead over the Ferrari driver from 38 points to 63.

In his 300th formula, one appearance, lewis hamilton finished second to claim his best result of the season, and his fourth podium in succession. George Russell was third, after he fought his way past Sergio Perez with three laps remaining. While, Carlos Sainz, who started last following an engine penalty, took fifth.
