Lewis Hamilton dominated the inaugural Qatar Grand Prix to beat Max Verstappen with a lights-to-flag victory.
Hamilton's lead was never under threat despite Red Bull's best efforts as they forced the Mercedes driver into a two-stop race.
The seven-time World Champion's victory has trimmed Verstappen's lead in the Drivers' Championship to eight points.
Fernando Alonso capitalised on Red Bull's decision to pit Sergio Perez for a second time to just hold onto third place in his Alpine. It ended a run of more than seven years without a podium for Alonso, dating back to the 2014 Hungarian GP.
Perez came home in fourth, ahead of Esteban Ocon in the other Alpine, Aston Martin's Lance Stroll and the Ferrari pair of Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc.
