Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel finished just six seconds off the lead despite significant delays in their races.
Vettel was delayed by a ten-second stop-go penalty while Hamilton lost even more time having the padding in his cockpit replaced. The pair were closing on the podium battle when the chequered flag fell.
Daniel Ricciardo moved up nine places to win the race but the race’s biggest mover was Fernando Alonso, who finished ten places higher than he started.
Remarkably Valtteri Bottas ended the race in the same place he started despite losing 18 places on the first lap.
