    Hamilton's pain is Russell's gain

    While Hamilton lost out late due to the strategy, his teammate benefitted to match his best ever finish in F1.

    I'm sure that'll be great news for the seven-time champion.

    Hamilton's inquest begins

    Well, the seven-time champion is certainly going to be asking some questions of his team after that.

    The Englishman was leading the race before the two quick safety car situations, and the team took any protection away from him by pitting Russell and not him for soft tyres.

    Verstappen jubilant

    It sometimes feels like Max Verstappen doesn't quite know what to do when on that top step anymore, it happens so often.

    Another fantastic display from him in front of his home fans.

    Top three take their place on podium

    Leclerc, Russell and the winner Verstappen are welcomed to the podium, as they celebrate their achievements from a manic Dutch GP.

    Leclerc: "Max was too quick today"

    In a race that looked like it was completely getting away from the Ferraris, Leclerc seems relatively content with a podium today.

    Russell plays off Hamilton incident

    "We like to keep it close" Russell joked after coming close to hitting his teammate when overtaking late.

  • Jack Drury

    Verstappen clearly overwhelmed with support

    In an interview with Sky Sports he ends it with: "Proud to be Dutch."

    Another great result for Red Bull.

  • Jack Drury

    Hamilton will be seething

    It's gone from Hamilton set to fight for the win with about 25 laps to go, to him finishing outside the podium places yet again.

    Frustrations will be high in that car right about now.

    Russell finishes second!

    The tyre change seemed the right choice for Russell, as he finishes ahead of Leclerc in third!

    Lap 70/72 – Perez forced off!

    Perez tried to overtake Sainz and was forced off the track.

    With Sainz's penalty, the overtake is really not necessary.

  • Jack Drury

    Lap 68/72 – Sainz five second time penalty!

    The unsafe release has seen him punished, and he will currently be outside the top 10 as it stands.

    The battle for fourth in the constructors championship is heating up as Norris is fighting to get past Alonso.

    Lap 65/72 – Hamilton not happy

    The Mercedes driver is furious with his team, and is now holding on from Leclerc who has come from nowhere to be challenging for a podium.

    Lap 64/72 – Russell overtakes Hamilton!

    The pair nearly collided, but it's the apprentice overtaking the master with nine laps to go.

  • Jack Drury

    Lap 62/72 – Do Mercedes swap drivers over?

    With Russell on soft tyres, is he better placed to fight Verstappen? He's already 1.7 seconds ahead of Hamilton.

  • Jack Drury

    Lap 61/72 – Verstappen overtakes Hamilton!

    The Dutchman was ahead before the first corner!

  • Jack Drury

    Lap 60/72 – Safety car ends

    Here we go then, can Hamilton hold up Verstappen?

  • Jack Drury

    Lap 59/72 – Sainz and Alonso almost collide in the pits

    The Ferrari driver was certainly released unsafely right in front of the Alpine, and that'll certainly be looked at.

  • Jack Drury

    Lap 58/72 – Russell pits

    Russell asks for soft tyres and comes in, although he now rejoins behind Verstappen.
