Lewis Hamilton scored another important victory in his championship fight with Max Verstappen. To win he had to overtake both Bottas and Verstappen on the track.
“That was such a tough race physically and mentally,” the Briton said after the race.
“I didn’t get quite as good a start as Valtteri and then lost out at the restart which was not good. I really had to position myself as best I could after that.

“Max made a mistake at some point which was perfect and I knew that was going to be the lap where I could be as close as I could in the last sector.
“With Valtteri I had to make the move early on before the tyres were destroyed and I managed to just get in front at Turn 1.
“It was right on the limit and great racing,” concluded Hamilton.
