8 LEWIS HAMILTON
Hamilton should have improved on his second Q3 run, and while his Turn 3 move was bold, he didn’t deserve to get a puncture. His recovery started a little slowly on softs, but even with damage to the diffuser he salvaged two points with ninth. One of his lesser performances of an otherwise spectacular season.
8 VALTTERI BOTTAS
Bottas was bang on Hamilton’s pace in qualifying, and could do nothing about Verstappen in the race. It’s difficult to compare his pace to his team-mate’s on Sunday, given their different race situations and strategies, but Bottas seemed to run decently enough on his way to a solid second place. A handy weekend’s work.
