It was a day to forget for the Italian driver. After securing his career-best qualifying result, Giovinazzi lost 3 places before the end of the first lap. The Alfa Romeo driver dropped to P14 after a tire puncture.

Winner 2
Fernando Alonso

Alonso made an impressive start overtaking his teammate, Ocon, and Giovinazzi on the first lap of the race. The Spaniard who was running strong at P7 for almost the entire race made an incredible move on Sainz on the last lap to secure P6.

Loser 2
Daniel Ricciardo

Despite out-qualifying his teammate, Daniel Ricciardo had to let Lando Norris through because of the team orders. The Australian finished outside the top-10, just behind his a decade younger teammate at P11.

Mercedes have managed to pull away from Red Bull in the championship despite the Verstappen mastery; all thanks to Bottas’ vital podium and Sergio Perez’s horrendous qualifying outing. Currently, Silver Arrows are 12 points ahead of the Milton-Keynes-based team.
