Lewis Hamilton has pitted for intermediates from second but Norris stays out! The rain has briefly relented but more is expected any moment now. If there’s no more rain he could hold on. It’s treacherous at turns 5-9 but everywhere else it seems ok. Stroll has spun as has Gasly.

Lewis Hamilton claims 100th win!

Lewis Hamilton has his 100th victory in Formula One, a stunning achievement. Max Verstappen salvages second from the back and Carlos Sainz completes the podium.
