Lewis Hamilton has thrown away the chance to take back the lead of the championship standings after making an uncharacteristic mistake on a red-flagged restart after title rival Max Max Verstappen hit the wall.

“I’m so sorry guys,” said Hamilton after a sensational red flag restart saw him side by side with Sergio Perez for the win in a two-lap sprint race, with the Briton finishing 15th.

In another twist to the driver standings, Verstappen will hold the lead of the championship standings by four points, despite not even finishing the race.

Sebastian Vettel shocked fans with a shock podium for Aston Martin, with Pierre Gasly finishing third.
