Lewis Hamilton promises to 'turn up the heat' after summer break

Vettel encountered a heap of lapped traffic during the build-up to his pit stop and when he did duck into the pits a slow wheel change cost him 1.5 seconds.

It's worth exploring what happened, how Bottas came so close to taking Vettel out, and what it means for the rest of the season.

Hamilton and Bottas made a clean start, with Vettel passing his teammate Kimi Raikkonen for third place around the outside at Turn 2.

"Then it's a bit hard to foresee the traffic and knowing how well you go through traffic or not, and in that case I lost quite a lot". "We've had an awesome job by the team and we came here with Ferrari pushing".

Pierre Gasly in the Toro Rosso finished in sixth place ahead of Kevin Magnussen's Haas.

"That's exactly why things that are not being discussed directly face-to-face are being completely spun out of control in the wrong way", Wolff said.

The race, preceded by a minute's silence for former Ferrari boss Sergio Marchionne, began in sweltering conditions with a track temperature of 57 degrees Celsius and air at 34.

But after being swept aside by the Mercedes juggernaut immediately after the summer break 12 months ago when the Merc was simply too quick and too reliable for the 2017 Ferrari, Vettel is pinning his hopes of landing a fifth title ahead of Hamilton on the speed superiority of this year's Ferrari.

The other side of the Red Bull garage was less satisfied, with Max Verstappen's power unit giving up after five laps, triggering a complete dictionary of swearing from the Dutchman. There's a virtual safety vehicle as a result.

Vettel, his team mourning the death of former chairman Sergio Marchionne, ended the day with the quickest lap of one minute 16.834 seconds after Red Bull's Australian Daniel Ricciardo led the way in the morning with a best of 1:17.613. The 24 point lead over Vettel definitely puts Hamilton in the driving seat during the summer break. He rejoined second between the German and Bottas.

Sebastian Vettel is even leading the world championship, but not counting any chickens in his battle with Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton.

Held by traffic and still on his original worn softs, Vettel began to struggle and his lead tumbled to 9.5sec by lap 39 when he pitted. "We caught up with Bottas after the first stop but there was no chance to overtake". Then Ferrari tried to set their trap.

Lap 45 - Ricciardo comes in for a pit stop and returns in fifth place. Hamilton was setting impressive lap times at the front, pulling a 6.5-second gap to Bottas behind him in 14 laps.

Stoffel Vandoorne should have made it a double-points finish for McLaren but retired from ninth with a gearbox problem.
