Solid race ends in fourth and fifth for the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team
After a well-executed one-stop race on offset tyre strategies, George Russell finished fourth with Lewis Hamilton fifth.
With George lining up P3 and Lewis P7, the Team opted to split strategies with George starting on the medium and Lewis the hard tyre.
Both cars opted to stop under the Safety Car on lap 17, with George switching to the hard tyre and Lewis taking the medium.
George took the restart in fourth with Lewis passing Carlos Sainz for fifth; both cars ran in these positions to the flag. Post-race, the Aston Martin of Alonso was given a 10-second time penalty, promoting George to third. However, this was subsequently reversed after a right to review from Aston Martin.
