Raikkonen Ferrari’s right rear side damaged hugely and forced to Verstappen again at Turn 1, which also collide with Fernando Alonso’s sidepod, who retired after few laps.

On lap 15 the race restarted again, Hamilton perfectly made the gap between the Ricciardo, who run with new set of intermediate, at bay and Bottas, who also did not pit under the Safety Car, moved into the P3.

After the ultra-soft fitting, all are resume race perfectly – Hamilton lead with a very healthy advantage, the Brit made a 10 seconds gap between Ricciardo.

On lap 39, again Safety Car deployed the race, when Marcus Ericsson crashing out on the Anderson Bridge.

The race resume with 25 minutes left of the two-hour limit and Hamilton once again did not give Ricciardo a breath and soon opened a two-second gap. None of the top three of Hamilton, Ricciardo or Bottas tempted to change again for fresher tyres.

Sergio Pérez was fifth for Force India, while Jolyon Palmer took his first points of the season with sixth place on the weekend it was announced that he would lose his Renault seat to Sainz.
