Antonio Giovinazzi (P18): 4.5/10
The good news for Antonio Giovinazzi was that he wasn't last, and finished ahead of a Williams. That bad news for the Italian is that he was still behind not only a Racing Point, but also the second Williams. Just a few weeks ago, the suggestion of George Russell beating a Ferrari-backed Alfa Romeo would have been the punch line to a bad joke, rather than the storyline of Giovinazzi's Hungary race weekend. Part of the problem was the three-place grid drop he received for impeding Lance Stroll during qualifying. It undid all the hard work of getting through to Q2 in the first place and left him starting from 17th, where it's all too easy to get stuck in position while potentially getting caught up in other people's accidents around him. He did indeed lose out in the inevitable first lap jostling, and an early switch from medium to hard tyres did nothing to revive his fortunes. He peaked in 17th position, but ten laps from the end found himself put to the sword by Lance Stroll with the pair among those finishing two laps down from the leaders. Sadly there's little to take comfort from here.
