Yes, 1.Qe5 is beautiful- 1.f3 also wins, but Caruana missed both moves and played Qh3, I think, and the game ended in a draw many moves later.

  1. Qe5!!!

a) 1...Rxe5, 2. c4+ Qxc4 (forced), 3. bxc4+ Kxc4, 4. fxe5 and White is up a rook and winning.

b) 1...Qxe5, 2. c4+ Rxc4 (forced), 3. bxc4+ Kxc4, 4. fxe5 and White’s up a rook and winning.
