Valtteri Bottas - 8th place, 4 points - 7.5/10

A disappointing overall result for Williams, but Bottas can rightly be annoyed by the strategy calls from his team at a crucial time in the race. Pitting him on the second lap under the safety car - before the red flag period - resulted in Bottas dropping from fourth to 12th and having to fight back through the field alongside the Ferraris. Did well to recover to eighth but could have had seventh had he not been stuck behind team-mate Felipe Massa for much of the closing stages.
