Autosport (UK) - - RACE CENTRE -

Given the mid­field bat­tle in qual­i­fy­ing was so tight, to take ‘Class B’ pole po­si­tion, even in the rapid Haas, was an achieve­ment. He con­verted that into lights-to-flag ‘vic­tory’, keep­ing Sainz be­hind early on then Ocon, on fresher rub­ber, at bay late on. Sadly it came to nought when his car was ex­cluded. Mag­nussen’s week­end got away from him. The fall­ing-out with Alonso in Q2 was largely down to Alonso’s an­noy­ance at be­ing passed on the run to the Parabol­ica, but he had a stake in go­ing off at the first chi­cane and clash­ing with Perez after the restart. But his pace mostly was good.
