Antonio Giovinazzi (P14): 7/10
Antonio Giovinazzi started the weekend with a creditable tenth place in first practice, but then slowly slid backwards for the rest of the weekend. When it came to qualifying, he just managed to squeak into Q2 even though he was then pipped for grid position by his team mate. However while Kimi Raikkonen was immediately in the wars at the start of the race, Giovinazzi kept out of trouble and made rapid progress over the first 20 laps, reaching eighth place before it was his turn to pit. And unfortunately the stop proved something of a disaster - fortunately not full-on Norris-level catastrophe, but enough to put him almost to the back of the field and a lap off the leaders. Without a safety car to close things up and give him the chance to unlap himself, the rest of the afternoon proved something of an unrewarding slog as continued to battle away with lamentably little to show for his efforts. Would he have finished in the points without that pit stop issue? Probably not; but he surely deserved better than 14th.
