Rosberg laps up the crowd on his lap back to parc ferme. He's in a typically exuberant mood when he gets there, jumping into the arms of Mercedes engineers all around him.

Bottas celebrating a little bit like he's won a race, too. Hamilton's body language decidedly different, he looks sheepish as he gets out of his car but he does shake Rosberg's hand after the weigh-in. Hamilton must know second place slipped through his fingers there.

Plaudits have to go to Bottas though, as Williams said beating a Mercedes is a great achievement and will be a huge lift to the entire team.

Lap 67

Rosberg starts the final lap of this race.

I don't think Hamilton is going to be close enough to get this pass done. He's got one more bite of the cherry down to Turn 6. He's nowhere near close enough to pass Bottas and he will have to settle for third.

Out in front, Rosberg takes the chequered flag to win his home grand prix. Hamilton finishes 1.7 seconds behind Bottas after backing off in that final sector.

Vettel comes home fifth. Ricciardo still keeping Alonso honest through the final sector but the Spaniard clings on, he claims it by less than a tenth of a second! Great duel in the closing stages between those two.

Bottas congratulated over the radio after "beating a Mercedes fair and square". Nerves of steel at the end from Bottas but that final stint on the super-soft proved to be too long in the end, he just didn't have the traction he needed for the last three or four laps. That contact with Button ultimately costing Hamilton second position, you would think, as it indirectly led to the change of strategy.

Hulkenberg continues his run of scoring points in every race with seventh.

Lap 66

"He's too fast on the straight," says Hamilton, but he's reminded Bottas had DRS last time out. He won't this time. Again Hamilton cannot close enough on Bottas, who looks so cool under pressure.

Lap 65

Those backmarkers means Bottas also gets to use DRS through the hairpin. Hamilton clearly does not have the traction through Turn 2 and 3 to get this pass done at the moment.

Lap 64

Bottas clearly has better traction through the middle sector. Hamilton just can't get close enough but they are approaching some backmarkers. Second could be slipping away for Hamilton.... those super-soft tyres are looking shot.

Lap 63

Bottas told he can push a bit harder now. Big moments in this race and in the championship coming up. Hamilton has four laps to get past the Williams, he has slight bit of fuel in reserve over Bottas as well.
