Red Bull dominated the second Formula One Grand Prix of the season in Jeddah on Sunday as Sergio Perez, who started from pole position, took victory while teammate Max Verstappen finished 15th to second. Two-time champion Fernando Alonso, who started on the front row but was hit with a five-second penalty during the race, finished third in his Aston Martin. They were followed by the Mercedes duo of George Russell and Lewis Hamilton. The Red Bull duo reversed their finishing positions at the season-opening Bahrain GP. Verstappen, who was halted by mechanical problems in qualifying, regained the championship lead by picking up an extra point for driving the fastest circuit of the race on his 50th and final lap.
