The Mercedes drivers just could not chase down the young driver who proved to be so much quicker in the straights today, and with both Silver Arrows turning up the heat on Leclerc, he was just unstoppable. Leclerc won his maiden race just seven days ago at the Belgian Grand Prix, a bitter sweet victory after the tragic death of Anthione Hubert who lost his life in a crash during Formula 2 the day before.
Lewis Hamilton tried his best to overtake him, but Leclerc was determined to win. After making an error, team mate Valtteri Bottas took second place from Hamilton.
Renault’s drivers finished with their best result so far this year with Daniel Ricciardo in fourth and Nico Hulkenburg in fifth.
