09:05 And that's all, folks! We'll see you for the Turkish GP in a couple of weeks' time - we'll see you then!
09:05 Here's the report from the Emilia Romagna GP:
09:02 Hamilton AND Ricciardo both do a shoey. Champagne and sweaty boot juice is truly a potent cocktail...
08:54 Wolff: "I'm not so much in the numbers, but this is something to be proud of. As long as we can stay energised and motivated, I think we can push it for ever more. We are looking forward to a new challenge."
08:52 Hamilton: "It was an exhausting race. The speed we had to go after a poor start...it's just very overwhelming now because there's [people in the team] who are the unsung heroes. I'm forever grateful to be a part of it."
08:51 Bottas: "Yeah, I think damage made quite a big effect today. Suddenly out of turn 7 there was debris, I tried to not run it over with the tyres, but it caused some damage and made the car tricky to drive."
08:50 Ricciardo: "It was a bizarre one. I got into fourth at the start and thought that was the best we could do. Cyril said 'congrats, but I'm not getting another tattoo!'"
08:48 Ricciardo is delighted with his second podium of the year - I don't think he expected such a big gift.
08:46 While Latifi just missed out on his first F1 points in 11th place, Grosjean's penalty promoted Vettel to 12th and Stroll to 13th. Albon made the finish after his spin but down in 15th and last place of the finishers.
08:44 Grosjean gets a five-second time penalty for exceeding track limits having been shown the black and white flag towards the end. It sees the Haas driver drop from 12th to 14th in the race results with the penalty added to his race time.
08:44 And Mercedes has won the constructors' title - a record seventh time in a row!
08:43 Kvyat keeps Ricciardo honest and collects fourth, with Leclerc, Perez, Sainz, Norris, Raikkonen and Giovinazzi completing the top 10.
08:42 Valtteri Bottas settles for second - and it's another podium for Daniel Ricciardo!
08:42 And Lewis Hamilton, converting a fortuitous pitstop into a lead, has set a 1m15.484s to win the Emilia Romagna GP!
08:41 It's the final lap.
08:41 Kvyat's really going for the jugular here, with Ricciardo firmly in his sights. Perez, meanwhile, must be absolutely fuming having lost a chance at third.
08:40 Hamilton does a 1m16.305s to extend his advantage.
