Winner: Lewis Hamilton
Second: Nico Rosberg
Third: Sebastian Vettel
Fourth: Kimi Raikkonen
Fifth: Daniel Ricciardo
Sixth: Felipe Massa
Seventh: Max Verstappen
Eighth: Valterri Bottas
Ninth: Daniil Kvyat
Tenth: Carlos Sainz
Pole: Lewis Hamilton

After last round, I can't see Lewis getting his pit stop strategy wrong again. Looking over his qualifying lap of 2015, this is a circuit on which he excels so I feel he is the man to beat.

Nico will have to play second fiddle this once while out of Europe.

Ferrari have made inroads into the dominance of Mercedes in the off season and this will ensure their next best places on the grid.

Now it starts to get interesting. This next group of Red Bull, Toro Rosso and Williams are all quite close. If all these teams get their cars to the finish line, they should fill the next 6 positions. The only other team that could mess this up is Force India.

Who next? This will probably be Hass and McLaren. Honda have made massive improvements but that next step is a big one. Hass with the Ferrari in the back are quick but I don't see them in the points this time but should lead this group home.

The last group should finish with Renault, then Sauber and then Manor bringing up the rear.

As Vandoorne was not an option in 10 'n' Pole and he was substituting for Alonso, results are calculated as Alonso finishing in 10th place.

If Alonso is unfit to race in the next event, Vandoorne, (or whoever substitutes for Alonso), will have their results calculated as if Alonso is in the Grand Prix.
