This is Bottas's 150th race, while The Iceman is set to break the record for most starts ever: 323.
Lewis Hamilton wins from P2 to equal Michael Schumacher's 91-Grand Prix wins record
Polesitter Valtteri Bottas retires on Lap 19 due to a power unit issue
Max Verstappen loses out by 4s, Daniel Ricciardo takes first podium since Monaco 2018


The Race:

Lap 1:

There some battles, and no one makes the 1st corner, but all get through in a boring start. Replays show that Albon did touch Riccardo, and that Vettel did move in his starting box.

Lap 2:
Hamilton is now out of DRS range, but gets a fastest lap\.

Lap 3:
Bottas gets a fastest lap, while the top 3 are pulling away from the rest. Looks like a Mercedes 1-2, and a Red Bull 3.

Lap 5:
Grosjean seems to be injured, after Kimi went into the gravel and sent a lot of it into Grosjean's hand.

Lap 6:
The closest battle is Leclerc, Riccardo and Verstappen as Hamilton gets a fastest lap

Lap 7:
Reports come in that light rain is coming, while Verstappen sets a fastest lap, and Albon does a pitstop.


Lap 8:
Hamilton sets a fastest lap.

Lap 9:
Riccardo finally overtakes Leclerc with the switcharoo.

Lap 10:
Norris and Perez have a tussle, nearly resulting of the loss of the front wing of Perez.

Meanwhile, rain starts falling on the track.

Lap 11:
Leclerc pits! He lets the faster cars go, with the other Ferrari, Vettel spins and flat spots his tyres! More bad luck for him in this season.

We only got 11 laps in and we reached the image limit. The Next part will be up soon
