Valtteri Bottas took a dominant victory in the Australian Grand Prix, but Lewis Hamilton could not match his Mercedes Formula 1 team-mate's pace.

Motorsport Network’s technical editor Jake Boxall-Legge uses our exclusive 3D animation of the Mercedes W10 to pinpoint the damage and explain why such a small change visually could have such a big influence on Hamilton's speed.
