Nico Hülkenberg (Retired): 6.5/10
Well, he certainly got things off to a spectacular start on Sunday! You don't often see cars get rolled over and remain upside down in modern Formula 1, and the flash fire at the back was a worry as Hulkenberg remained trapped underneath which gives rise to concerns about the role of the Halo when it comes to extrication. It was all very unfortunate as the Renault had got a strong start from tenth on the grid to challenge Romain Grosjean for seventh before the coming together. Responsibility for the clash was fairly evenly divided between the drivers, and the stewards rightly put it down as a racing incident. Hulkenberg remained a deserved 'best of the rest' seventh in the drivers championship which will be a boost as he prepares to tackle a formidable new team mate in 2019.
