At the start of the weekend, Toto Wolff, the Mercedes team principal, said that Lewis Hamilton had spoken to him about the possibility of moving to Ferrari when his contract runs out at the end of next season.
But moments after recording a win which puts him firmly in the box seat for a sixth world title, Hamilton's mood turned to five-year-old Harry Shaw, who was recently given just one week to live following a nine-month battle against a rare bone cancer. I'm enjoying continuous growing with this team and, I mean, it's incredible what we're achieving together, what we have achieved in these six years, seven years or whatever it is, and I plan on working with this team to help it become the most successful team of all time.
"I was chilled but I was looking for something for inspiration, something to grab onto, so I dedicated today's race to him". This gave Verstappen a chance to attack the Ferrari and move into the third place. In the constructors' championship, Mercedes lead Ferrari by 96.
There was no need for that on Sunday, with Bottas experiencing clutch problems at the start and having to settle for second.
"When I woke up this morning, I was a bit lost and kind of "how's today going to go?' and then I saw that message and I was like 'I see you Harry, I've got you".

Bottas and Hamilton are only separated by one point in the standings, with the former just out in front.
The safety auto bunched up the field again, creating some much-needed tension but Hamilton had everything under control at the re-start.
He also believes Sunday's race should see a stronger performance from both Vettel and Leclerc compared to Qualifying.
"When that is not there it is definitely a lot less exciting from a competition point of view, racing within a team.it is not how F1 should be, but it is what it is right now and it has been like that in the past, but it is not our fault these guys (Mercedes) are good at their jobs". I'm in a pretty clear position, because we're really trying to perform as well as we can. Our hope was to deliver more. His team mate Lando Norris brought out the safety vehicle on lap 46 after colliding with Racing Point's Lance Stroll.
The two Haas drivers provided some entertainment as they went side by side, with Grosjean making several track excursions.
