So, Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, thanks to his pole position during qualifiers, scored himself another win despite a heated battle between him, Nico Rosberg, and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel (due to bad pit stop strategy that worried the German ace driver). Of course, with Hamilton wins while Vettel placed 2nd, Williams got in for a treat as its driver, Valtteri Bottas, tasted his podium finish by entering third place in the race.

Meanwhile though, there's tensions brewing between the two young Red Bull drivers, Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo. The team advised Verstappen to let Ricciardo pass him after the Australian fell behind his teammate at the start. However, the refusal consigning him to a seventh place. Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz is reluctant in the race because despite his crash at the qualifiers and a poor gearbox issue, he finished 9th.

As the top three teams are edging themselves for the constructors' championship of the season, Hamilton's recent win made him 43 points behind Rosberg.

The next race is set at Baku for the 2016 F1 Europe GP on the 19th of June.
