Lewis Hamilton wins to take 28-point lead of the title race after both Ferraris crash out on first lap.

Red Bull ace Daniel Ricciardo and Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas made second and third place on the podium. It was a terrible race for Ferrari F1 team. Double DNF hugely hits their championship standings.

Vettel, Verstappen and Raikkonen are all under investigation from the stewards as the Dutchman was caught in the middle of the two Ferraris and caused huge impact between all three during the start of the race.

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.

While on first lap, Vettel, who continued with damaged car in the first crash, then lost his front wing and was left with no option but to retire.

Following few laps, Alonso retired with fatal damage and Daniil Kvyat crashed into the wall, the Safety Car came out for a second appearance.

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.

Carlos Sainz took a career-best fourth place on the weekend it was announced that in 2018 he will drive for Renault.
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.

Stoffel Vandoorne was seventh for McLaren, while Lance Stroll delivered an excellent performance to take eighth, ten places ahead of his grid slot. Romain Grosjean took two points for Haas and the last point on offer went to Esteban Ocon in the second Force India.
