15:49 We hope you enjoyed that one today. We'll see you in two weeks for the Russian GP at Sochi.
15:44 Hamilton: "It's all a bit of a daze, like three races in one day! This track is phenomenal - all those restarts, total focus was needed at all times, it was really hard."
15:43 Bottas: "It's disappointing because it was a dream start for me. I managed to hold pole position at the safety car restart. But once I lost the lead at the second start...that's how it goes."
15:41 Albon: "Yeah, it was good! Obviously a while to get here, and it was a tough one as well, we had to work for it. I can breathe - it's good to be here!"
15:39 Hamilton looks like he's been through the wringer, but he gets to greet some fans for the first time this year.
15:38 The top three park up on the main straight - Hamilton, Bottas and Albon are your top three. We'll hear from them in a sec.
15:36 "Thanks for sticking with me," Albon says. That's a very well-earned third place.
15:35
 
15:35 And, indeed, Russell misses out. Raikkonen is demoted to ninth place due to his penalty, which pushes Leclerc up to eighth, but Vettel keeps hold of the final points position with Russell P11.
15:35 Right, let's get our collective breaths back. Wow.
15:34 Russell came unbelievably close to a point there - but he goes without once again.
15:34 Ricciardo comes agonisingly close and gets fourth, with Perez, Norris, Kvyat, Leclerc, Raikkonen and Vettel completing the scorers.
15:33 ...after a tough year, Alex Albon will stand on a Formula 1 podium, and comes home third!
15:33 Valtteri Bottas can't do enough and gets second, but...
15:33 And Lewis Hamilton comes around to win the Tuscan Grand Prix!
15:33 Russell's dream of F1 points is slipping away as the final lap begins...
15:32 It's a 1m18.833s from Hamilton on the penultimate lap - we're on the final tour.
15:31 Then Hamilton turns it up, he's on a devilishly quick lap now. That timing board is very purple.
15:30 Now, Bottas is getting at Hamilton a bit here - just 1.3s back now. They're matching each other on this lap.
