15:48 Sainz: "First of all, I got a good launch, got tucked in behind Lando and went send to get him around Turn 2. [For the rain] we boxed at the right time and I was able to come out in P3."
15:46 Verstappen: "It was pretty tricky on the in-lap to make the call to go to inters. It was really slippery, but we picked the right lap to pit."
15:43 Hamilton: "It's taken a long time to get to 100 and I wasn't sure it would come. Lando did such an amazing job, he had incredible pace. It was bittersweet to see my old team ahead."

15:30 Norris slides off! Hamilton takes the lead!
15:30 "He's going to be in trouble if he hangs it out," Hamilton is told. Norris might have to concede here.
15:28 "We've got to commit," Norris says - and he's squirming all over the road at the moment! Can he hang on?
