The pole-setting German regained the lead in the driver's championship with his second success of the season after the opening leg in Melbourne.

He led from start to finish, with Hamilton holding off a spirited attack from Red Bull rookie Daniel Ricciardo for second.

The Ferrari of Fernando Alonso took fourthg.
