Saturday night’s Formula 1 race? Kinda meh. Except, of course, for those few thrilling tussles in the midfield. And yeah, Oliver Bearman’s debut was nothing short of dashing.

Max Verstappen, though? He hit the podium for the 100th time. Winning for the 56th time in his career, and that’s nine in a row, folks.

The internet’s got mixed feelings about Red Bull Racing’s show of dominance. Another one-two finish, thanks to Sergio Perez. But let’s not forget Bearman. The rookie scored points on his very first GP and snagged nearly half the votes for Driver of the Day.
