Briton Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) won his second race of the season on Sunday at the Portimao circuit in Portugal to hold onto first place in the general classification of the Formula 1 World Championship.

Max Verstappen (Red Bull) was second and Valtteri Bottas was third on the podium despite starting from pole.

With his usual cool blood, Hamilton, second on the starting grid, did not get nervous when Verstappen passed him on lap seven, when the race started again after the safety car started.

Behind, the Mexican Sergio Pérez (Red Bull) was fourth and the British Lando Norris (McLaren) fifth.

The only retirement of the day was that of the Finn Kimi Räikkönen (Alfa Romeo), after a touch with his teammate, the Italian Antonio Giovinazzi.
