Lewis Hamilton overcame personal demons and criticism of the way in which he uses his tyres to move from third position to taking victory. During the race there were enough dramas and there was reason to believe that Hamilton could go as far back as sixth or seventh at the end of the race. However, for once Hamilton kept his cool, preserved his tyres even better the Jenson Button (who is considered to be very kind on his tyres) to finish ahead of Sebastian Vettel and the charging Mark Webber. Hamilton did not flatter to deceive this time.
