An unexpected period of pre-race drizzle led to an plenty of wobbles and an early safety car due to Nicholas Latifi’s shunt.

Hamilton was struggling to get into gear and put his car in the barrier midway through the race.

As he crawled back to the pits, team-mate Valtteri Bottas and George Russell came together for a huge high-speed crash.

The rivals were furious with each other as they walked away from the incident, which brought about a red flag.
