Speaking after the race, Hamilton told reporters: "A huge thanks to the team. What we've done this year is incredible. I knew we have a car we can fight with, and it was a great feeling throughout the race.

"The pressure was not too bad [on the final pit-stop]. I didn't not know the situation, if, for example the safety car would come out, but I knew we had a chance to get by."

Rosberg was forced to retire after an electrical fault as Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa made up the top five.
