yet another one-two win this season. Valteri Bottas returned to Formula 1 podium finishing third.

Starting from pole position for the 44th time in his career, Lewis Hamilton managed to stay ahead of Rosberg after the start and opened a gap between him and his team-mate over the first 29 laps.

However, after both drivers made the first pitstop changing from super soft tires to soft Rosberg's pace began to improve and the difference between the two Mercedes drivers started to decrease and at some point they were both separated by only a second.

At some point each rider found himself having to manage a problem in his car. Hamilton had to manage fuel and Rosberg was having problems with the brakes. The Brit eventually cut the line in front, 2.2 seconds away from Rosberg.
