Lewis Hamilton took his first pole position at the circuit, being joined on the front row by his teammate and championship leader Nico Rosberg. Hamilton went on to win the race (and complete a sweep of the North American races!), with Rosberg coming home in second place, while Max Verstappen, Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo made a battle for third place in the closing stages, eventually putting Ricciardo on the podium after Verstappen and Vettel were each given time penalties for different offences. The results reduced Rosberg and Hamilton's gap in the championship to nineteen points.
In the final laps of the race, Verstappen went off the track at Turn 1 on Lap 70 and did not gave the position to Vettel. Still refusing to move, Vettel got very angry during the team radio, and in the final lap of the race, Vettel got even more angrier, telling Charlie Whiting to "[bleep] off".
Verstappen was handed a 5-second time penalty for the incident, but the stewards decided to give Vettel a 10-second time penalty for the erratic driving towards Daniel Ricciardo.
Tony Walton Mercedes team joined on the podium to receive the winning manufacturer’s award.
