Stroll worked a miracle to haul a Williams through to Q3 for the first time this year, even with the help of a tow from Gasly. That laid the foundations to score points. While his pace on Sunday wasn’t dramatically better than Sirotkin’s, he handled himself well in traffic and drove a strong race. Sirotkin didn’t match his team-mate in qualifying, albeit without the benefit of a tow. That proved to be the main difference between the two all weekend, although Sirotkin did end up 5.4s behind at the finish. The fact that he set his fastest lap on the final lap showed what he could do.
