Hamilton wins as three drivers take third place

There was plenty going on in this race - on the first lap there was an incident that saw Pascal Wehrlein retire with barely a corner completed. There were overtaking battles galore, and strategy calls working and not working. Hamilton won, and Rosberg got his required second place, but in all honesty, everyone was focused on who was going to take third.

Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen were doing battle on track, with the Red Bull driver finishing third and heading to the podium before being penalised for gaining an advantage off the road. Vettel stood to collect the trophy, but post-race, was also given a penalty, meaning it was Daniel Ricciardo that inherited that coveted third place position.
