Hamilton led comfortably from the start of the race until the chequered flag, navigating a couple of safety car periods and a change from wet to dry tyres without faltering. Behind him, there were tense battles between both Ferrari teammates, as well as in the Red Bull camp, with a lot of overtaking to be done. Max Verstappen made up for a disappointing qualifying yesterday, sweeping past almost everyone on the first lap and battling onto the podium by the end of the race.

Meanwhile, it was a tough day for rookies as Stroll crashed out on the first lap, and Giovinazzi suffered another crash in his Sauber. Both McLarens retired from the race, as did Daniil Kvyat in the Toro Rosso.
