Hamilton reflected on the Tuscan Grand Prix and he felt that it was a phenomenal race as he finished ahead of Bottas. 
"It was like three races in one day. Just incredibly tough today with a difficult start," Hamilton said.
"This track is phenomenal and the heat and keeping Valtteri behind who has been quick all weekend wasn't easy. I was behind him at the beginning. 
"With all the restarts, total focus was needed during that time. It was really, really hard."
Mercedes are still placed at the top of Constructors' standings followed by second-placed Red Bull and third-placed McLaren-Renault.
