Rosberg was penalised for forcing Red Bull’s Max Verstappen off the track.

The German finished behind Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Verstappen after being unable to make up the lost time.

It was the icing on the cake for a perfect afternoon for Hamilton, who has put a stranglehold on the championship after a remarkable recovery from a difficult start to the season.

In seven races, Hamilton has turned his season around, moving from a 43-point deficit to Rosberg after five races to his current advantage of just six points short of an entire win. This was his fourth consecutive victory.
