Ferrari were quick once again and were rewarded with another double podium as Carlos Sainz jr round out the top three.

Polesitter Sergio Perez followed after ensuring the two leading teams locked out the top four.

Mercedes’ George Russell outperformed teammate Lewis Hamilton for the first time, coming home in fifth while his compatriot fought his way back from an awful qualifying session to claim a single point in tenth.
