Lewis Hamilton wins first race in 2018Comfortably the craziest race of the early F1 2018 season has been taken out by Lewis Hamilton.An incredible bizarre ending to the race saw the drivers sit behind the safety car before being released with less than five laps to go.Sebastian Vettel chanced his luck on the restart but went into the first turn with too much pace and locked up and fell back to fourth.Valtteri Bottas then looked headed for victory but unfortunately ran over a piece of debris on the track which destroyed his rear tyre along with his chances at the points.All of the chips fell the way of Hamilton who crossed the line for his 63rd Grand Prix victoryahead of Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and Force India’s Sergio Perez.The win vaults Hamilton back to the top of the drivers standings on 70 points, four points clear of Vettel.Sauber’s Charles Leclerc was awarded the driver of the day for his phenomenal drive that saw him cross the line in sixth position.
