Kimi Raikkonen - 3rd place, 15 points - 7.5/10

Raikkonen was unhappy with the balance of his car throughout the weekend and was pleasantly surprised to qualify on the second row when he often struggles on a Saturday. A good start saw him outbrake Bottas in to Turn 2 but his restart after the safety car was not clean and Bottas returned the favour. A mistake at Turn 4 when close behind the Williams also allowed Hamilton to pass him as the three battled over second place, but was helped by Bottas getting stuck behind Fernando Alonso after his pit stop, allowing Raikkonen to jump the Williams in the pits before a lonely run to third.
