With teammate Lewis Hamilton going wire-to-wire for victory, Bottas helped complete a ideal weekend for Mercedes that saw it top every session and leave with maximum points. Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez scored a double points finish for Force India at the outfit's home race in eighth and ninth, respectively.

"It's just one of those things", he said.

Speaking on the grid, directly after going quickest in qualifying, Hamilton added: "I feel unbelievable, especially with a great crowd like this - I hope you liked the lap?".

Bottas said: "I am really happy for this today".

Like Raikkonen, Hamilton and Verstappen, Vettel had complained over team radio that his tyres were suffering from blisters, but speaking at the end of the race he said he had no indication of what was to come. Behind him, Toro Rosso's Daniil "Torpedo" Kvyat smashed into his team mate Carlos Sainz, forcing Sainz to stop in the middle of the track as Kvyat continued.

Austrian Grand Prix victor Valtteri Bottas was fourth in his Mercedes, but will now drop to ninth after picking up a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change.

The Frenchman, no stranger to penalties himself, believes the no-call by race stewards stemmed from the fact Hamilton was second in the driver standings.

Ricciardo produced a spectacular moment when he lost control of his spinning vehicle at Club corner, but managed to catch it before hitting the wall.

As the field got off the grid, Max Verstappen and Sebastian Vettel were engaged in a serious fight for third position.

For the larger part of the grand prix, Raikkonen was able to live up to his nickname "The Iceman" as once Lewis got rid of him off the line he was running a pretty easy race in second. First it was Raikkonen who slowed with a shredded front-left tyre. Sadly, Alonso had to retire following a power unit issue.

The Finn tried to pass him on lap 42, when Vettel defended his position, but succeeded a lap later by surging past on Hangar Straight into Stowe as the German's tyres faded.

With 10 laps remaining, Hamilton was clear by 12 seconds and Bottas, fourth, was closing on Vettel, intent on fighting for a podium finish.

Hamilton's success was given added significance when Vettel dropped from third to seventh because of a front-left tyre failure with two laps to go.
