The Hamilton - Mercedes combination was unbeatable. Lewis clearly has that little bit extra Bottas, 18 seconds behind, had clearly nothing to answer Hamilton's speed.
Leclerc drove a good race.

Vettel managed to get the point for fastest lap on fresh soft (red) tires. The previous fastest lap was set by Hamilton on the hard compound.
That Vettel was only 2 tenth or so faster should an uncomfortable reminder for Ferrari.

The podium interview with Bottas was interesting.

Martin asked Bottas something like what was the reason the 44 car had so much
more race pace. It was easy to see that Bottas was truly baffled and he replied that
he would have to look at the data to see where Lewis was getting all the extra speed
around the track.
Bottas also said that he knew Lewis could be beaten as he had beaten him, but Bottas
was genuinely disturbed at that huge gap by race end.

Peter Windsor has some astute observations on why Hamilton was simply better than Bottas

Just before the end, Lewis set a fast lap time on his old hard tires, just two tenth slower than Seb on fresh softs. Ferrari should feel consternation.
