    What a race of changing fortunes for the Mercedes drivers. Rosberg knocked back to 17th at the start, fighting his way back through the field to finish 3rd. Hamilton racing clear and building a 20 second lead before disaster struck and took him out.

    What bad luck for Hamilton! Seems like he has a lot of bad luc with mechanical failures this year.
    I'm on the fence about Rosberg. He drove a fantastic race, truly awesome to see him recover to third, but the way he overtook Kimi was really sub-standard. He pulled the same trick on Max a couple of races ago, though this one was a bit less serious.
    I loved to watch the rides of Ric and Ves, a bit of luck, but overall deserved results for the Redbull team. Loved to see the show on the podium, finally some fun rather than the awkward toe-curling tension between Ham and Ros.

    I can't even imagine how gutted Hamilton must feel. It's not as bad as it happening on the last lap (which I seem to recall happening a couple/few times, although I don't recall the drivers) but it still has to be the most horrible feeling for a driver to be clear of the field by that much and apparently cruising to victory, only to have it snatched away.

    I think the incident with Raikkonen was just the wrong side of a racing incident. Rosberg should have shown more patience and probably would have gotten him on one of the 2 DRS straights anyway, or with a cleaner opportunity.

    Kind of amazing what a beating Rosberg's car took without incurring any real damage though, especially after what happened to Vettel when he ran into Rosberg at the start. Luck was definitely on his side and abandoned Hamilton altogether.
