For the first time this season, Lewis Hamilton has moved into the lead of the championship battle, overtaking teammate Nico Rosberg to zip into first place. The gap between the pair is just six points, so there's still everything to play for but it's a motivational boost for Lewis at this point in the season.

The battle for third also has changed, with Daniel Ricciardo moving his Red Bull above both Ferrari drivers. Räikkönen is still ahead of Vettel, with just four points between the two Scuderia drivers.
