Daniil Kvyat - 3rd place, 15 points - 8.5/10

Misfortune for his team-mate helped secure a podium, but Kvyat looked back to the best form he showed late in 2015 on Sunday. Couldnโ€™t match Daniel Ricciardoโ€™s performance in qualifying but sixth wasnโ€™t a bad starting position and he took full advantage with an impressive and aggressive start which caught Vettel out at Turn 1. Running second on the road after Ricciardoโ€™s puncture, the safety car dropped him to sixth but he recovered to second again within a few laps and had the pace on soft tyres to keep Vettel at bay. The final stint saw Kvyat have to use the mediums having run out of softs, allowing Vettel to jump him.ย
