Esteban Ocon (Retired, Lap 7): 6.5/10
Esteban Ocon's weekend started off well, with sixth place in both the first and second practice sessions on Friday giving him hope of a decent grid position for the race. Although he made it through to the final round of qualifying, he gambled on making a single run and it backfired in a big way when he spun at turn 3, bringing out local double yellows that spoiled many a rival's hopes of improving their own time before the chequered flag. Tenth place on the grid was perhaps less than he had hoped for, but it was only two spots behind his team mate. Ocon then survived both of the early conflagrations that consumed so many of the other cars, but by this time the RS20 had developed a unique problem all its own: the rear brakes were on fire. Literally. When the Renault engineers took a look at the damage the blaze had done to the car they realised that the situation was terminal, and Ocon wasn't able to join the rest of the drivers for the standing restart.
Lance Stroll (Retired, Lap 43): 7.5/10
Fresh from his podium success last week in Monza, this outing proved to be a little more patchy for Lance Stroll. He and his Racing Point team mate had a slow start to the weekend, with a long-run programme on Friday morning leaving them almost at the bottom of the timing screens, and Stroll remained outside the top ten in the afternoon. But he was back in the pink on Saturday which saw him fourth quickest in final practice and then through to the final round of qualifying in the afternoon where he was seventh quickest - which put him sixth on the grid after Sergio Perez picked up a penalty. Stroll gained a place at the start after tipping Carlos Sainz into a spin at turn 2, and then survived the safety car restart unscathed to move up to fourth. He had the satisfaction of passing Charles Leclerc to run in the top three for a spell, and was back in fourth minding his own business on lap 43 when his car suddenly spun into the gravel and a hefty thump with the tyre wall. The team is continuing to investigate, but a puncture from debris left on the track seems likely - so it's another case of it really not being the driver's fault.
