High-speed overtakes, three different leaders, two safety cars, but only one winner. The streets of Las Vegas gave us one of the most thrilling races of 2023, as Max Verstappen overcame a five-second penalty to take his 18th win of the season.

From the heart of the Vegas paddock, Tom Clarkson is joined by Damon Hill and Natalie Pinkham to discuss Verstappen's victory, why polesitter Charles Leclerc missed out on the win and what the future holds for Sergio Perez after securing P2 in the Drivers' Championship.

Just four points now separate Mercedes and Ferrari in the Constructors’ Championship battle for P2, so Ferrari ambassador Marc Gené and Mercedes’ Technical Director James Allison drop by to share their thoughts on who will come out on top at the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi.

Plus, you’ll hear from Esteban Ocon after his mega drive from P16 to P4, and Aston Martin Performance Director, Tom McCullough, on Lance Stroll’s incredible comeback from P19 to P5.
