The six-time world champion, all did was pitted and then went to seal the 7th Formula One title, with Bottas second after a puncture ended Verstappen’s race on lap 52 in a dramatic twist.

Both Bottas and Hamilton pitted for the Brit, and soft tyres breaking Michael Schumacher’s Formula One record of 91 closing weekend, also experienced another victory only when there were six laps to complete.

Daniel Ricciardo, the Italian-Australian racing driver, who earned third place after Bottas for Mercedes along with Hamilton closing on standing as the champion for a record-equalling seventh time whereas still, four more races are pending.

Daniil Kvyat, the Russian racing driver, is in the fourth position in a furious finale, with Charles Leclerc finishing the top five.
