Autosport (UK) - - RACE CENTRE -

It wasn’t Perez’s fault that Force In­dia mis­judged the Q1 cut­off and con­demned him to an early qual­i­fy­ing exit. In fact, Perez’s first-run pace ad­van­tage over Ocon ac­tu­ally bit him in this case. But he drove a su­perb race, save per­haps for the clash with Mag­nussen at Lesmo 1, and made it look easy. A mi­nor fu­elpump prob­lem held him back in Q3, but other than that this was a very straight­for­ward week­end for Ocon. He was close enough to Gros­jean on track that you could le­git­i­mately ques­tion whether he should have beaten him, but this was made moot when the Haas was ex­cluded.
