With a fantastic finish in the qualifying round where he claimed pole position, McLarens’ Hamilton took charge of the 70-lap race from the beginning and proved why he is regarded as one of the topF1 drivers of this generation – and he is just 25.

The win is the second consecutive victory for Hamilton this season, and sees the 2008 driver’s champion take the top spot on the F1 drivers’ championship board with teammate Jenson Button three points behind in second.

Button finished second to Hamilton in the 2010 Canadian Grand Prix, making it a clear win for the McLaren team as they take the lead on the constructors’ points board.

Fernando Alonso claimed the third podium spot – maintaining his consistency as he has done throughout the season thus far.

The Red Bull duo were fairly disappointing having gone into the race favourites in the odds and finished fourth and fifth.

Sebastian Vettel finished ahead of his teammate, with Australia’s Mark Webber finishing fifth and losing his pole position on the point’s scoreboard.

In what is shaping up to be a thrilling Formula One Season, with some of the most exciting races in recent years, the next event on the calendar is the 2010 European Grand Prix which will go ahead on the 27th of June at the Valencia Street Circuit.
