    Hamilton was quicker than Verstappen overall. Maybe we didn't get a fair comparison. Hamilton was roaring today - super quick. He is getting the most out of the Mercedes, barring his moment.

  4. 'Redemption for Norris'

    Jack Nicholls

    BBC Radio 5 Live F1 commentator

    What a redemption story for Lando Norris. That is as good as he could have hoped for.

  5. The top 10 finishers

    1. Verstappen (Red Bull)
    2. Hamilton (Mercedes, +22)
    3. Norris (McLaren, +23.7)

  6. 'Bitter win for Red Bull'

    Former Renault driver on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    This is a Red Bull win but as victories in 2021 go it could be the most bitter they have with Hamilton losing a minute and being out of contention.

  7. Hamilton second, Norris third

    Lewis Hamilton produces a brilliant recovery to get to second after dropping from ninth when he went into the gravel, and his race was very, very nearly done.

    But he got himself out of the gravel and on to the podium - and the bonus point for fastest lap.

    Lando Norris gets only the second podium finish of his career. Top work.

  8. Team radio - Red Bull to Verstappen

    "OK, great work, Max."

  9. BreakingVerstappen wins the Emilia Romagna GP

    For the 11th time in his career, Max Verstappen wins a Formula 1 race.

    He had a very nervous moment when he nearly crashed just as we were restarting after a red flag, but from then on it was absolute perfection and he wins it by a margin of 22 seconds.

  10. Post update

    Lewis Hamilton was so, so nearly out of the race. He's going to come second.

  11. Post update

    Lap 62 of 63. Any late drama?

  12. Vettel has to retire - gearbox failure

    He was out of the points.

  13. Post update

    Max Verstappen has this in the bag, unless he makes an error.

  14. Team radio - Norris to McLaren

    "Argh he was too quick for me."

  15. Tean radio - Mercedes to Hamilton

    "Just three laps remaining and fastest lap. Nice work, Lewis."

  16. Post update

    Jolyon Palmer

    Former Renault driver on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Hamilton just needed one moment. He needed one chance to get side-by-side. He was committed on the brakes.

    What a fantastic drive from Norris. People worried Ricciardo would swallow him up. It has been a really impressive showing.

  18. Post update

    Around the outside and Lewis Hamilton gets the move done. A brave battle from Lando Norris, but can't hold him off for any longer.

    Hamilton has the bonus point lap for fastest lap, which means he will hold on to his title lead after Valtteri Bottas got the fastest lap in Bahrain.

  19. Team radio - Norris to McLaren

    "I've got a clutch slip in the middle of the corners. I can't throttle. No drive."

  20. Post update

    Jolyon Palmer

    Former Renault driver on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Hamilton has got to go for it...
