Netizens react to NBA legend Shaq O’Neal aka Shaq on “winning” the US Grand Prix as he was among the many celebrities present at the Circuit Of America. After witnessing an edge-of-the-seat encounter between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton which went down to the very last turn of the last lap, the point difference between the two drivers now stands at 12 points. With Sergio Perez on the podium as well, this was Red Bull’s 200th podium in F1, they now trail by just 23 points in the Constructors’ standings.
Verstappen who started from pole position lost the P1 spot to Hamilton early in the race, but a brilliant pit strategy and the Dutch’s aggressive approach to the race secured him his 7th win of the season which brings him closer to his dream of lifting the world title and ending Hamilton and Mercedes’ dominance.
