Valtteri Bottas has won the opening race of the 2019 Formula 1 season, dominating from lights out to the chequered flag.
The Mercedes driver crossed the finish line 21 seconds ahead of teammate Lewis Hamilton in second place, and now leads the F1 drivers' championship for the first time in his career.
Bottas overtook Hamilton off the start line and led into the first corner. He conceded his lead momentarily when he made his pit stop on lap 23 to Max Verstappen, who made his one and only stop two laps later.
Bottas also picked up an extra point as he set the fastest lap of the Grand Prix.
Verstappen chased down Hamilton towards the end of the race, making his way past Sebastian Vettel on lap 31. However, he couldn't get past the five-time world champion, even making a mistake in his pursuit, which set him back a number of seconds.
Bottas pitted later than Hamilton, as Mercedes was forced into an early stop for Hamilton to cover Vettel, who came into the pit lane on lap 15 for a set of the medium tyres.
Vettel struggled towards the end of the Grand Prix, with teammate Charles Leclerc, who eventually finished in fifth place closed to within a second after the gap previously boasted roughly 13 seconds.
Daniel Ricciardo's maiden race for Renault got off to a disastrous start, as he lost his front wing on the run into the first corner.
The Australian was squeezed onto the grass which resulted in heavy damage. Ricciardo eventually retired on lap 31 of the race.
The first DNF of the year came from Carlos Sainz in the McLaren, as the MCL34 caught fire on lap 11. Romain Grosjean also retired from the event with a suspected suspension issue.
However, it wasn't all pain for Haas, as Kevin Magnussen scored a sixth-place finish.
The Dane head Nico Hulkenberg who managed some points for Renault. Kimi Raikkonen was eighth for Alfa Romeo, while Lance Stroll, who dropped out of Q1 on Saturday, crossed the line in ninth place.
Pierre Gasly failed to break into the top ten and was stuck behind Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat for much of the race, with the Russian picking up the final point.
