Lewis Hamilton perfectly finished on top start from sixth, the Brit cuts Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg’s championship lead to just four points following the German retired with a gearbox trouble. The F1 pundit David Coulthard conducts the podium interview.

Lewis Hamilton, who finished on top: “It’s very mixed emotions at the moment, but we have the greatest fans here. It was you guys who spurred me on.

“At the beginning I allowed him to get a good gap and look after the tyres. But we came out on the harder tyre and could not believe I had that kind of pace.

“I don’t want to see a team-mate fail, I want a one-two, but I really needed this result.”

Lewis Hamilton spoke about his desire to get his hands on the famous gold trophy, which is traditionally given out to the race winner. However, this year, it has been replaced. “Where’s the gold trophy? He asks. “My one’s falling to pieces, this shows you never give up.”

Valtteri Bottas, who finished second: “We’re going in the right way and the team has done a good job. It is pleasure to drive the car. I really enjoyed it. As a team we made the most out of it.”

The Finn added: “I feel sorry for Felipe in his 200th grand prix.” The Brazilian retired from the race after he had to take avoiding action as Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari crashed before bouncing across the track.

Daniel Ricciardo, who finished third to score his fourth podium in five races. “Yeah they [Australians] do obviously enjoy this track a lot – it’s nice to be on the podium and this is a good circuit for me,” said the Red Bull driver.

“Just one more lap might have been different – Jenson was coming but I was able to held on for the podium.”
