Sebastian Vettel - (2nd place, 18 points): 8/10

Vettel and Ferrari improved throughout the weekend having been comfortably adrift of Mercedes in Friday practice, but he will have been disappointed to lose out to team-mate Kimi Raikkonen in a close qualifying session. It mattered little as Raikkonen dropped to the back at the start and Vettel briefly challenged Hamilton in to Turn 1 before settling in to a comfortable second position as Ferrari didn’t have the pace to challenge for victory. Seemed to have enough in hand to keep Nico Rosberg at bay if required late on. Showing Alonso-esque consistency for Ferrari.
