"Fantastic boys," says Nico Rosberg. "What a car you have given me, what a car." You can only wonder what would have happened had Lewis Hamilton not retired so early, but so dominant was the Mercedes it is hard to see anything other than a 1-2 for the team.

Bottas finished sixth and you wonder what he might have done but for the puncture when he clipped the wall which relegated him to the back of the field. The way he fought his way back was one of the highlights.

The usual whoops and celebrations from the top three, all with something to celebrate. Ricciardo appears with a massive smile to loud cheers as Rosberg celebrates. We're used to the German national anthem being played but it's been Vettel whose being the reason for it in recent seasons ... in fact, in every race since July 2013! Not today.

Lap 57

Late afternoon sunshine bathes the track as Rosberg eases to victory, leading from the first corner and never challenged thereafter, but the roars of the crowd are saved for Ricciardo who takes second. Magnussen becomes the first Dane to take a podium in third with team-mate Button in fourth, putting McLaren top of the constructors' championship.

Lap 56

Penultimate lap and it seems as if the positions will remain as they are, barring driver error. Decent gaps between all the leaders

Lap 55

Rosberg so far ahead the TV cameras have hardly shown him in the last few laps. The crowd beginning to get very excited by the prospect of a home 2nd place

Lap 54

Magnussen has dropped back a little, 1.5s back, and Button has not made up enough time to mount a challenge on his team-mate. Räikkönen neatly slips past Vergne to move into 7th

Lap 53

Red Bull tell Ricciardo that he's "doing a good job". Magnussen certainly being kept at bay for now and is going to save some fuel for a charge at the end
