Grosjean had a largely superb weekend, taking ‘Class B’ pole, making Q3 using softs and then doing just about everything right until he got ambushed by Perez at the VSC restart. That cost him seventh place; his defence against Ocon proved that he was capable of keeping the Force Indias behind. Magnussen couldn’t nail his soft-tyre run as effectively as Grosjean did in Q2, which left him 12th on the grid. While his move when being attacked by Leclerc was ruled legal, ultimately this ruined his race. Magnussen underachieved in qualifying, then his race went nowhere.
