Stoffel Vandoorne (eleventh) : 8/10
The former GP champion is back ! On a track that in theory was hardly favourable to Honda power, Stoffel made the news in qualifying. Starting eighth, he knew he was not armed to fend off Bottas and Ricciardo but he did intend to fiercely defend P10. His lap times gave reason to be optimistic, until a lengthy pit stop dropped him behind Massa. An unrewarded effort, but let’s see how it all goes in Budapest.
