Barcelona: Dutch teenage sensation Max Verstappen won his maiden Grand Prix on his first ever drive for Red Bull in Spain on Sunday.

The 18-year-old Dutch driver, in only his second ever season, capitalised on Lewis Hamilton's first lap collision with Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg to post an immaculate drive from the front.

He had two former world champions in his wake with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen in second Sebastien Vettel in third.
