Sebastian Vettel - 3rd place, 15 points - 9/10

For much of the opening stint, Vettel looked the least likely driver to influence the lead battle but a good strategic call from Ferrari put him firmly in the mix. Vettel managed his second set of tyres excellently to extend his stint and open up a lead, allowing him to switch to supersoft tyres at his final stop and chase down those in front. Emerged in sixth place and was 13 seconds off the lead when he passed team-mate Raikkonen with 14 laps remaining, but Hamilton’s pace was always going to allow the Ferrari to close in. DRS allowed him to dispatch the two Red Bulls in the closing laps and he put pressure on Rosberg as he just kept his tyres alive to the flag.
