Nico Rosberg won his fourth race of the season, leading Hamilton in a dominant one-two for Mercedes - their 10th for the season - they were untouchable on the day. Valtteri Bottas drove a composed race to finish third ahead of Daniil Kvyat, who is improving every race, and has maintained his lead over teammate Daniel Ricciardo in the championship after the Australian finished fifth.

The Ferrari team had a weekend to forget, as they suffered their first DNF since the 2006 Australian Grand Prix. Kimi Raikkonen retired after a coming together with compatriot Bottas - the second time this season, while Sebastian Vettel accepted blame when he crashed on Lap 51,after an incident packed race including a tyre puncture on Lap 1, which put him at the back of the pack, and a spin after he had made his way back up to 12th. Rosberg clearly holds the advantage in their battle for second place in the championship.

Felipe Massa finished sixth ahead of the two Force India's of Nico Hulkenburg and Sergio Perez. The Mexican driver was cheered all the way through the race. Max Verstappen continued to impress as the Dutchman backed his fourth place at the Circuit of the Americas with a ninth place finish in Mexico, while Grosjean took the final point for Lotus, in what will be one of his final races of the Lotus team.
