ONE OF THE FINEST WINS SEEN FROM HAMIL­TON

Fer­rari had been on the front foot, but Lewis Hamil­ton was at his ef­fer­ves­cent best as he drew a mis­take from Se­bas­tian Vet­tel and broke Kimi Raikko­nen’s re­sis­tance

This stands among Hamil­ton’s finest wins, re­liant on him mak­ing two key over­takes and pil­ing the pres­sure on Fer­rari. Al­though Vet­tel spun after con­tact, the pass on the open­ing lap was le­git­i­mate, and Hamil­ton’s pace over Bot­tas con­firms that he was at his ir­re­sistible best. Bot­tas’s deficit to Hamil­ton in qual­i­fy­ing was partly thanks to the lack of a tow, but through the week­end he didn’t look to have the speed of his team-mate. He did a good job to keep Raikko­nen be­hind him and drew a penal­tyin­duc­ing er­ror out of Ver­stap­pen. Dogged rather than dy­namic.
