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.
