Sergio Perez - 8th place, 4 points - 7.5/10

A solid drive from Perez as he brought home four points, even if he’ll be disappointed to get jumped by Verstappen so late on. The Red Bull was a faster car and Verstappen was recovering through the field, with the 10-second margin by the end of the race highlighting the difference between the two. Perez had made his second stop early - on lap 28 - in order to try and cover the Red Bull but it nearly backfired as Massa rapidly closed in during the final five laps, but Perez just held on.
