Lewis Hamilton is doing everything he can to keep his title hopes alive, with another race victory allowing him to close the gap to teammate Nico Rosberg to just 19 points - but of course there are now only two races left to go. There were no movements on the driver standings table this weekend, but a few battles chopped and changed.

We're now looking at Kimi Räikkönen and Max Verstappen going head to head for fifth place, with a single point splitting the two. Meanwhile, Sergio Pérez and Valtteri Bottas both sit on 85 points with the Force India driver just ahead.
