Who won the 2021 Brazilian GP?

The 2021 Brazilian Grand Prix was full of incident and a sensational drive from Lewis Hamilton over the weekend which saw the Mercedes driver come from the back of the field ahead of the Sprint Race, to win the main Grand Prix. 

Hamilton raced up to 10th place on the grid after the Sprint, then by Lap 5 of the race, the Mercedes man had made it up to fifth place as he scythed through the field at Interlagos. Sergio Perez was dispatched by Lap 19 and Hamilton then had leader Max Verstappen in his sights. 

On Lap 48, Hamilton was pushed off track by Verstappen in an incident not investigated by the stewards, but on Lap 59 the Red Bull driver had no answer for his Mercedes counterpart, who then pulled out a 10.4s gap and won the race.
