Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel took third place, his first podium appearance of the campaign, with Red Bull's Pierre Gasly denying the German an extra point with the fastest lap right at the end. The comfortable win in a race short on thrills was the 75th of Hamilton's career, and second in a row after his lucky triumph in Bahrain two weeks ago.
