Nico Rosberg's third race win in a row makes him the dominant driver of the 2016 season so far, but the race didn't start off as the German might have hoped. Daniel Ricciardo took an early lead off the line but then suffered a puncture that dropped him back down the table. Sebastian Vettel was distracted by a high-flying Daniil Kvyat that caused an inter-team Ferrari incident, but both Vettel and Kvyat ended up on the podium.

Hamilton had to come back from the rear of the field, and had a difficult afternoon that included picking up damage on the first lap and pitting five times. He still managed to finish seventh ahead of two Toro Rosso drivers.
