Daniel Ricciardo's race was over after the contact on Turn 2, bringing the safety car out for a few laps as his car was towed off the track. AP
Max Verstappen was given a 10-second time penalty for swerving into his teammate Ricciardo, helping Hamilton's cause.
Hamilton had some radio problems in the race but a pit stop corrected the issue. AP
Valtteri Bottas tried to catch up with the Ferraris but had to let Hamilton past for a better chance. Raikkonen, though, used all of his experience to fend off Hamilton. AP
With 18 laps left, Hamilton was told he had "five laps" — or about seven minutes — to catch Raikkonen. But even after 10 laps, he couldn't. Hamilton then sportingly gave Bottas third place back right at the end. AP
Vettel held on for his 46th career win, while Raikkonen expertly defended his position for a Ferrari 1-2. AP
