Valtteri added: "I'm really happy for today. It was definitely not easy, the whole race, to start from P9 and there were many cars not easy to get through, but the team did an absolutely perfect strategy and I just got my head down, and kept going.
“Also, with the puncture with Kimi, we got a bit lucky but a perfect weekend for us and well done to Lewis. It's just amazing what we've done today. The car was so good to drive. It was really quick and the team did a perfect strategy for both of us and 1-2 is perfect."
With Lewis in second position in the championship by a single point, and Valtteri close behind in third, the race for the championship title is well and truly on as the season crosses its half way marker. Next up is the full-throttle Hungarian Grand Prix on the 30th July; where Lewis holds the outright record for the most wins [five] of any driver in F1.
