Race had opened with some Twist as Verstappen lost the lead to Mercedes’ George Russell, who was ultimately forced to retire with an engine issue.
Verstappen breezed back to the front and opened up a lead with a race pace that was formidable even by the standards Red Bull have already set this season.
Ultimately, the race winner was pleased to break his duck with a win in Australia, where he clinched Red Bull's first victory at the circuit since 2011.
"It’s great to win here, my first win as well. It’s been a while for the team as well but very, very happy. – Max Verstappen
