Fernando Alonso was named the fan's driver of the day after the race ahead of victorious Alpine team-mate Esteban Ocon due to his stout 10-lap defence of fourth position against Hamilton.
During what was an intense battle between the two world champions, Hamilton took to the radio to complain to the team about what he considered to be unfair moves as Alonso blocked.
"Guys! Did you see he just moved over on me? C'mon! At that speed it's so dangerous," aired an annoyed Hamilton.
Despite the Mercedes driver's accusations, Brawn viewed Alonso's driving as "fair".
Describing it as a "battle royale between Fernando and Lewis", F1 managing director motorsports Brawn wrote: "What you see when Fernando is involved in F1 are incredibly tough battles but you always know he is going to be fair.
"I know Lewis was moaning a bit at one stage about Fernando’s defence, but I didn’t think it was a problem.
"Fernando was tough and fair and always gave just about enough space, which is what you have to do. It was a brilliant battle and hopefully a taste of what is to come in the second half of the season."
