Valtteri Bottas - 12th place - 7/10

Bottas performed well in qualifying in an uncompetitive car but failed to make it through to Q3, though Kimi Raikkonenโ€™s grid penalty saw him start from tenth place. Any advantage from a free tyre choice was lost due to the rain, and then his first pit stop saw his race effectively ruined. A rear jack problem delayed Bottas and saw him get stuck behind Pascal Wehrleinโ€™s Manor, leaving him outside the points through no fault of his own. Williams believes he could have been in the fight for seventh place without the issue.
