Highlights: Hamilton powers to race win

Together with his engineer, he had obviously done some good work on how the circuit would change overnight and evolve on race day.

That's why Hamilton's team-mate Nico Rosberg was so far behind. It was not all driving. A lot of it would be to do with not having quite the right set-up, which would mean he was uncomfortable with the stability of the car.

It was also interesting to note that Hamilton was using a little less fuel than Rosberg.

Hamilton really did have everything in his pocket. He was faster - he set a stunning fastest lap 0.9sescs quicker than Rosberg, who was the next quickest. He was able to look after his tyres. And he was using less fuel.

When the car works for you, you're confident and everything is running your way, days like that happen, and when they do it's fantasticgeijlsngi15
