Bottas was mostly unchallenged through the 55-lap race and went on to claim his third grand prix win. He is now tied up with Hawthorn, Phil Hill, Pironi and Max Verstappen in the list of drivers with most grand prix wins, topped by none other than Michael Schumacher.

With pole, fastest lap and race win, he also scored his first ever F1 hat trick. He became the 45th F1 driver to achieve that feat. However, since Hamilton went longer in his first stint, Bottas couldn't achieve a grand slam, which requires a driver to lead every lap of the race in question.

Hamilton, meanwhile, came home second to record his 117th podium finish. The record holder is Schumacher, with 155 podiums to his name.

It was Mercedes' fourth 1-2 finish of the season and 40th in its entire grand prix racing history. Mercedes needs only seven more 1-2 finishes to match McLaren's tally of 47.
