After the fall out of Silverstone, Hamilton and Verstappen were temporarily moved out of the spotlight as Alpine’s Esetban Ocon earned a shock win.

The race started with Hamilton’s teammate, Bottas, wiping out Verstappen’s teammate, Perez, with the Dutchman also getting caught up in the fray.

Verstappen suffered damage and could only nurse his car to a ninth-placed finish.

Up front, Hamilton was chasing surprise leader Ocon but came up against a former foe of his in Fernando Alonso.

The Spaniard, Ocon’s teammate, did all he could to keep Hamilton behind him and while the Brit did eventually overtake Alonso, by that time, there were too few laps left for Hamilton to catch Ocon.

Hamilton finished in third but was later promoted to second after Sebastian Vettel was disqualified for not having enough fuel in his car after the race.

Driver Standings:

First: Hamilton (191 points)
Second: Verstappen (181 points)
Third: Norris (113 points)
