Pascal Wehrlein - 14th place - 7/10

Qualifying was another excellent performance from Wehrlein, as he once again made it through to Q2 and should have beaten Palmer to 15th on the grid. Unfortunately a lot of the hard work was undone by a long first pit stop due to problems with the right front, and Wehrlein was demoted to the back of the field. Fought back well but was on older tyres when Ocon caught him late in the race, and realistically neither driver should have jeopardised Manor’s position on track ahead of the Saubers in case of an incident further ahead which made points a possibility.
