The British driver managed to pull off a win as he overcame the penalty, which had put his chances in jeopardy after his ten seconds were docked.
The penalty was imposed on the British driver of Mercedes after a deadly crash with the championship leadership Max Verstaoppen.
Verstappen lost control of his car and collided with the barriers in a bid to avoid the crash with Hamilton, who was attacking the Dutch from the beginning. He was taken to hospital for further tests to rule out anything ominous.

After the victory, Hamilton has trimmed the lead to eight points as he has 177 points with four wins so far while Verstappen has 185 points with five victories.
