09:51 11. Raikkonen, 12. Albon, 13. Norris, 14. Russell, 15. Giovinazzi, 16. Magnussen, 17. Grosjean, 18. Latifi, 19. Kvyat, DNF. Stroll
09:50 Full order: 1. Hamilton, 2. Bottas, 3. Verstappen, 4. Leclerc, 5. Gasly, 6. Sainz, 7. Perez, 8. Ocon, 9. Ricciardo, 10. Vettel
09:47 Bono himself will join Hamilton on the podium for this one - that's probably quite fitting.
09:46
 
09:45 Verstappen is third, with Leclerc fourth and Gasly fifth. Sainz took sixth from Perez late on, Ocon held on from Ricciardo, and Vettel completes the top 10.
09:44 Hamilton has the most wins of anyone in F1 with that, with a 25.5s advantage of Bottas.

09:43 But it's Lewis Hamilton who wins his 92nd F1 grand prix!
09:43 Indeed, Sainz powers past Perez for P6. The stewards are looking at the Gasly/Perez moment too
09:42 And Gasly goes the long way round to snatch fifth from Perez. Sainz is now right on the Racing Point's tail.
09:41 That's some robust defending from Perez, doing everything he could to keep Gasly behind. A late move, but Gasly has another tilt...
09:40 Hamilton logs a 1m18.750s at the end of lap 63. Verstappen enquires about the fastest lap in the meantime.
09:39 "Come on, let's get him - he's struggling", Gasly is told. Perez's softs look to be running out of life.
09:38 More light rain in the pitlane. I think we'd prefer a deluge.
09:37 Gasly's eaten into Perez's fifth place, so this isn't a given for the Racing Point driver. Sainz is lurking behind them too.
09:36 Race leader Hamilton has some cramp. Regardless, he's extended his lead over Bottas on the previous lap, setting a 1m19.484s in the process.
