Nico drove a measured race in a Grand Prix which started dry but was visited by repeated rain showers to finish in fifth position – his best result for the team. Carlos Sainz was on the brink of the top ten battle at the end of the race, however was given a ten-second time penalty, dropping him to twelfth positon in the results. The team remains in fourth place in the Constructors’ Championship, with an increased margin from its nearest competitors.
Formula One’s first ever triple-header drew to a conclusion after three long, busy weeks on the road. After a week at home and back at base, the team’s suitcases are packed and it’s time for the return of the popular German Grand Prix. After a brief hiatus in 2017, Hockenheim returns to the F1 calendar to host the first of another back-to-back race weekend.
