Bottas takes second race victory holding off Vettel for the win

The race started with some action, as Daniil Kvyat swept forward off the line, missed his braking into the first corner, ploughed into the side of Fernando Alonso, who in turn took out Max Verstappen. Kvyat was able to continue, the other two were not so fortunate. Out front, however, Valtteri Bottas was comfortable in first place, and although he didn't lead every lap, he didn't look troubled until towards the very end of the race.

The middle period of the race was quiet, but as the final laps started counting down, Vettel was pressuring Bottas for the win, and Hamilton was piling on the pressure to Ricciardo hoping for the final podium place. No position changes occurred but it was a tense final lap.
