Lewis Hamilton produced a storming drive through the filed after starting in the pitlane to take fourth at the flag - narrowly falling short of the podium to Kimi Raikkonen.
Lewis made steady progress early on running on the Softs - inheriting the lead when the SuperSoft runners stopped - and pushed on until Lap 43 when he made his one and only stop, re-joining in fifth, behind Max Verstappen.
Lewis was the fastest man on track and made light work of the Red Bull with a simply, simply lovely pass, setting off in chase of Raikkonen with 12 laps to go. But while he reeled in the Ferrari, he just ran out of laps to snatch the final spot on the podium.
"I had a great time, I enjoyed the race very much," said Lewis. "I had so much pace today, it would have been an easy win this weekend.
"So, on the one side I am disappointed that I put myself in the worst position for today. But yesterday is behind me, today has been very positive, I had fun coming through - it felt like the go-karting days where I would always start in the back in my first year or two.
"My goal today was really to just try and redeem yesterday's mistake, to make the team proud and get some points back.
"I was trying to get back to third, I just ran out of tyres in the end. But I enjoyed the battle today and hopefully that continues to show to everyone that I still have a lot of fire in my heart and many, many more races to go."
