7 The rating may seem a little generous, but circumstances made it very difficult for Hulkenberg. The team did reckon the slipstream he ended up giving Sainz in Q1 made the difference between him being ahead or behind Sainz, and he was put on a strategy that required luck that never came.
9 Circumstances make it difficult to compare his performance with Hulkenberg’s, but Sainz deserves enormous credit for nicking a point in a Renault that didn’t look much like a top-10 runner. What’s more, it came thanks to a late pass on Gasly. Effectively a point from nothing.
